I’ve been talking this series up because it’s really crazy. One reason I’m really excited about this is Fraser Irving is doing the art for this issue, and he has this really crazy digital painting style that fits these big cosmic story. This is writer Saladin Ahmed’s first comic and it is FANTASTIC.

Enrico Marini is doing this hardcover, and DC is embracing a new format. It’s a cool European-style graphic novel, and I love seeing them being a little more experimental with their big characters.

Eternity #1


It’s so much more than the next DIVINITY miniseries (which have consistently been some of Valiant’s best work), ETERNITY is a grand epic beyond time and space, yet still grounded and human enough to be accessible.
