    Comic Bastards - Kelly Gaines Jun 13, 2018

    At the risk of wading farther into college term paper territory, there's one more impression from Eternity Girl #4 that I would like to mention. Caroline Sharp/ Chrysalis is a living atomic bomb. Right now, so many of us are afraid of nuclear destruction, of powerful people being pushed too far and the rest of us paying for it. Caroline is dealing with this on an internal level. She's volatile, and her own power can be pushed too far and cause a reaction that thousands of unaffiliated people will pay for dearly. If you were her, in moments of hopelessness, would it look tempting? Would the nightmare start to feel like the solution? What sort of cosmic misfortune, or rhythm breaking, would allow anyone being to have that kind of power? Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard Jul 2, 2018

    Another running storyline through this issue is about a record playing. How there are endless grooves in it that spin around and around. This is, of course, referring to Carolines immortality. The creative team have really taken this series to new heights with the revelations in this issue. With only two issues left, things are about to get explosive for sure. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jun 13, 2018

    This is one of the finest examples of the comic craft that I think you could read. There is so much to love and so much to appreciate in this issue and makes me even more exciting for the last act. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 13, 2018

    This is an extremely entertaining issue that will not only make you think but bring a smile to your face as well. It's an unusual tale that starts out completely abstractly, but ends up making complete sense in the end and fits right into the narrative of the larger story. Now, only Caroline has to figure out how she fits into the larger story…. Read Full Review

    Writer Mags Visaggio used the opportunity of a flashback/expository issue to experiment with form and layout, turning what could easily have been the series' most standard issue into something wild. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Nicole Herviou Jun 13, 2018

    ETERNITY GIRL #4 seems to be a series of unrelated pop culture references, but it ties together to become a beautiful, dark, piece of art. The characters are vivid, the plot is extremely entertaining, and the art is an astonishing accomplishment. Unique and meaningful, the whole issue only takes place in a handful of moments. But their meaning is incredibly significant. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Quinn Morris Jun 14, 2018

    This series is reminiscent of Morrison at his best, and nowhere is that more evident than in this latest issue. If you're interested in a character-driven story about the repeated suicide attempts of an interdimensional immortal being of ridiculous power, then Eternity Girl is for you. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 14, 2018

    It's definitely one of the oddest Young Animal titles, but where it excels is in finding a bit of emotional truth hidden among the surreal insanity. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 13, 2018

    This issue is the most fun of the series, since it shows several contextual scenes taking place in various Caroline-derived realities. But the overall storytelling is lacking, and some of the characters feel forgettable, which makes for a somewhat frustrating read in single issues. Read Full Review
