If you had the option of living forever, would you take it? This December, award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios continues its tradition of smart and thrilling sci-fi books with the launch of Eternal, a new series created and written by William Harms (Impaler, inFamous) and illustrated by Giovanni Valletta. Eternal takes place in a world where cloning is not only legal, but highly practiced to the point where a person can essentially achieve immortality by continually cloning themselves.
“BOOM! has always taken pride in the strong collection of sci-fi titles we offer, from The Hypernaturals to Six-Gun Gorilla, so we’re excited to add to that list this December with Eternal,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “This is a world where life is extended past its natural ending, where science rules, and things like morality and ethics have taken a back seat. It’s a scary world, and one we can’t wait to share. William and Giovanni are swinging for the fences with this series.”
In Eternal, in a world of clones, the Human Liberation Army wants to free people from New Life’s grasp. Their leader Gail will take the most drastic, personal measures yet to do so. Rathmann, a former homicide detective turned New Life enforcer, is on the case, and is asking tough questions. Violet, a young girl and one of the few non-cloned humans—or Pures—left, is longing to enter the real world. But she has no idea the danger she is stepping into.
Eternal #1 arrives in comic book shops on December 10th with a main cover illustrated by Frazer Irving (Annihilator, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) for the cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code OCT141120. A retailer incentive cover drawn by Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight, Dream Thief) will be available in limited quantities. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is November 17th.
