‘Eternity Girl #4’ (review)

Eternity Girl is one of the most engrossing, enrapturing comics running right now.

The story of former superhero Caroline Sharp, forced into retirement, driven to despair, and unable to die, is a twisting piece of mindbendery.

The book unfolds in nonlinear fashion, as Caroline grapples with her depression while being offered a way out by her old archenemy Madame Zero…if she can help destroy all of existence.

Where issue #3 saw the forces of Chaos and Order take notice of Caroline and Zero’s journey to undo everything, the new issue explores various iterations of Caroline that came before her, from a Jocasta-like robot to a Tank Girl-esque figure battling marauders almost straight out of Fury Road.

There’s a Silver Age-style detour and even an homage to a beloved newspaper strip

Art and script come together here like few books before it, connecting the depths of the psyche to the outer limits of the cosmos. It’s a unique experience that doesn’t let up this issue. Infinity Girl continues to be one of the best books out there.
