So, you probably already know it, but we’re big fans of the pop-up imprint, YOUNG ANIMAL, that the one and only Gerard Way (of UMBRELLA ACADEMY, DOOM PATROL and TRUE LIVES OF THE FABULOUS KILLJOYS fame) oversees for DC Comics.
And, when one of our favorite rising stars in comics, the wonderful Magdalene Visaggio, was announced as writing one of the wave 2 YOUNG ANIMAL titles launching this Spring, we knew we had to get her in the shop to sign copies of issue #1 and kick the book off in true Third Eye style!
What’s the scoop on ETERNITY GIRL?
Spinning out of the epic MILK WARS crossover running this Winter, ETERNITY GIRL is the tale of Caroline Sharp.
See, Caroline Sharp has been a lot of things, including both a superhero and a super-spy.
But now, with those days behind her and her powers proving unreliable, Caroline finds herself stuck in a life weighed down by her depression and an inability to change.
You see, Caroline is going to live forever, and there is no escape to be had.
The very act of living reminds her that, to the rest of existence, she is an anomaly. All of that could change, however, when her old foe, Madame Atom, comes to her with an intriguing offer.
Madame Atom can give Caroline the power to end her life; she just has to destroy the rest of the world.
Just like the other YOUNG ANIMAL books combine the best of classic, timeless superhero magic with a bold, hyper-kinetic aesthetic, ETERNITY GIRL is a fantastic read that re-invents the idea of superheroes in the 21st century!
So, you’ve been hearing us rant and rave about how much we love the YOUNG ANIMAL books, and guess what — this January, starting in the JLA / DOOM PATROL Milk Wars one-shot on 1/31 – you can jump on fresh and try out the world of YOUNG ANIMAL!
