Far beyond the farthest any mortal has ever traveled is a nameless world nested in the very heart of existence. On that planet is a structure that extends infinitely into the heavens. It is the Shining Tower, the axis of life and death. And to end her suffering, Eternity Girl must destroy it. The catch? Everyone else will die, too.

    Read Eternity Girl. Oh my god, read it. Please. Its so good. The DCs Young Animal Imprint puts out a lot of very well done, trippy creations but this is by far my favorite and more people should be reading this. Read Full Review

    Eternity Girl, Young Animal's newest title is just as different as any of the others in the line and may perhaps be the best of the bunch. There's raw emotion and a clever science fiction concept at work. It also addresses a huge question: Can one destroy the universe and still be the hero? Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Apr 11, 2018

    Eternity Girl #2 is already feels like a series destined for best-of-the-year lists. Visaggio, Liew, and Chuckry are so in sync that this feels less like an ordinary narrative and more of a sequential art experience, one that no comics fan should miss. Read Full Review

    Magdalene Visaggio and her creative team have a real gem on their hands. Exploring these dueling realities hindering on mental health is something that hasnt been analyzed in this depth. With these new revelations about Carolines mental health, it will be interesting to see just how far Caroline will spiral and if anyone will be able to give her the help she desperately needs. The real question though is, will she actually want that help, knowing she may be able to end her life finally? Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Nicole Herviou Apr 11, 2018

    Even though the world of ETERNITY GIRL #2 is a little out there, the themes and emotions depicted in this issue aren't. They are extremely grounded and almost painfully relatable. The story chugs right along while characters develop against an absolutely gorgeous backdrop of spectacular art. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Apr 11, 2018

    Eternity Girl is one of the most human superheroes in comics today because of her emotions in dealing with once being famed and in the limelight. Could you imagine being one of the strongest beings in the universe and not being able to use your powers for anything? This story is a brilliant take on being powerful, but feeling powerless.

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Apr 10, 2018

    Eternity Girl is the only constant in the universe. As everything else changes, she simply is. She cannot maintain one form or another for long. She goes to a comedy club in order to try to relax, but she finds it insulting and instead leaves. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Judah Churchill Apr 18, 2018

    Sonny Liews art is a bit of a misstep for me. The character design seems quirky in a way where Im thinking everyone is cracking a joke every time they speak. Liew is also trying to stay on the Young Animal brand by making the lead Caroline/Chrysalis character look like a teenager-shes apparently 35. There is a well-written stand up comedian character that looks like a crummy version of Edna Mode from the Incredibles that just slowly grates on you and sabotages the complex emotional weight that Visaggio has slyly crafted.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 11, 2018

    A kind of clunky issue that manages to bump against some comic book themes that will be familiar to the seasoned reader. Caroline Sharp's malaise is warranted, but wearing thin. The reader isn't supposed to be as morosely bored as the character they're reading about. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kelly Gaines Apr 11, 2018

    I'm hooked. I love Eternity Girl thus far, and I'm excited to see what comes next. I can also say wholeheartedly that this book took a turn I did not see coming. I guess I was expecting more of a 'saves a little kid and sees life as worth living' or 'decides revenge is not the way at the last second' sort of thing, and #2 took a HARD left. Bravo, I'm into it. And if there is anyone out there debating whether or not to just erase all of human existence as a favor to us- maybe take a vote first? Maybe don't do that. Please. Sure, life is hard and most of us suck, but there's good in us too. The fact that that's coming from me is another twist I didn't expect this week- so once again, bravo Eternity Girl. This is a fun ride. Read Full Review
