DEATH IS OPTIONAL IN ETERNAL
The comic book industry has a love / hate relationship with clones. Sure, Superboy turned out OK, but then there was that awful Spider-Man Clone Saga. BOOM! Studios has its own clone comic debuting next week called Eternal and it looks pretty exciting. Created and written by William Harms and illustrated by Giovanni Valletta, the book is set in a world where cloning is not only legal, but highly practiced. People can basically achieve immortality by continually cloning themselves. Here's the write-up from the publisher:
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.
"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."
The first issue of Eternal debuts on December 10th with a main cover illustrated by Frazer Irving for $3.99. A retailer incentive cover by Greg Smallwood is also available in limited quantities.
