Eternus Comic Review

In the fantastical realm of Eternus, where deities and humans coexist, a thrilling whodunit mystery takes place in the year 357 AD.

With the unexpected death of the powerful Zeus, the revered ruler of Olympus and supreme deity of the Greek pantheon, a profound mystery now looms over the realm of mythology: who could be responsible for the shocking murder that has sent shockwaves through the divine world?

In the aftermath of Zeus’s death, the remaining Gods struggle to maintain their existence in a world increasingly dominated by Christianity.

Enter Heracles (aka Hercules), the son of Zeus and a renowned champion for the forces of good. However, in Eternus, the demigod a mere shadow of his former self, drowning his sorrows in alcohol to cope with the loss of his father. When Athena’s Temple is violated by a mysterious Centurion on a quest for a relic of immense power once belonging to Zeus, Heracles must confront his inner demons and step up to uncover the truth behind his father’s murder.

The key to solving this enigmatic puzzle lies in the hands of a young blind priestess, the sole witness to Zeus’s demise. It is now up to Heracles, albeit reluctantly, to protect this vulnerable child and ensure her safety long enough to unveil the identity of the killer. As he embarks on this perilous journey for justice, Heracles must find the strength to face his own inner turmoil and battle the forces that seek to destroy the remnants of his godly lineage.

Eternus #1

The adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” rings true when it comes to the debut of the Eternus comic series. The cover of Eternus comic #1 and the accompanying graphic novel are visually breathtaking, exceeding expectations with their stunning artwork.

What sets the Eternus #1 comic cover apart from the Eternus graphic novel cover is that when you fold the comic cover, the illustration seamlessly continues onto the back page, creating a unique and captivating design feature where Medusa’s snakes extend onto the back page.

From the moment you lay eyes on the stunning cover of Eternus, you can’t help but feel captivated by the promise of an incredible storyline and breathtaking illustrations.

However, as you delve deeper into the pages, you quickly realize that this captivating facade crumbles away to reveal a disappointing portrayal of certain characters. The initial anticipation slowly turns to disillusionment as you yearn for the depth and complexity that you were promised.

Eternus: The Introduction

The story of Eternus starts in Samos, Greece, where chaos erupted as flames engulfed the venerable Temple of Hera. The once serene sanctuary now echoed with the crackling of fire as the symbols of ancient power turned to ash before the disbelieving eyes of witnesses. With this dramatic event, Eternus launched into a gripping introduction to the story.

The powerful Hera, queen of the Gods, finds herself in a perplexing situation, unsure of how to proceed. By her side is Iris, the messenger Goddess, who is acutely aware of the peril they face. Together, they must devise a plan to navigate the dangerous circumstances ahead.

One of the most mysterious scenes is when a young girl can be seen cautiously descending down the creaky stairs leading to a dark cellar. The sensation of the blindfold covering her eyes heightened her other senses, making her acutely aware of every sound and movement around her. As she reached the bottom, a chill ran down her spine as she sensed a presence in the shadows. Suddenly, the monstrous Medusa is standing before her.

Medusa’s gaze was deadly, but the blindfold offered the girl a glimmer of hope. She knew that as long as she couldn’t see the mythical creature’s eyes, she would be safe from being turned to stone. However, she also knew that Medusa was not without other powers, potentially even more sinister. The girl felt a surge of adrenaline as she braced herself for whatever may come next. Would she be able to outsmart Medusa and get out alive?

In Greek mythology, the Greek hero Perseus cut off the Medusa’s head, as depicted in the graphic novel “Perseus and the Hunt for Medusa’s Head.” However, at this point it is still unclear if the Gorgon in question is actually Medusa or one of her snake-haired sisters.

The Bad Side of Eternus

Eternus does grab your attention from the get-go with its strong opening pages. However, there is a noticeable discrepancy in the portrayal of Medusa figure in the storyline compared to the striking front cover image of Eternus comic #1.

At the start of Eternus comic #1 there is fantastic potential, but let’s be honest, the illustrations are a bit chaotic. And when Heracles (aka Hercules) finally makes an appearance, he’s not exactly living up to his legendary status. The artist behind his design leaves much to be desired, as I found myself hugely underwhelmed by his appearance.

It appears that the creators poured their heart and soul into crafting the captivating first Eternus comic cover and the many variants. As I delved deeper into the pages of Eternus, I couldn’t help but notice a decline in quality – suggesting that they may have exhausted their resources and enthusiasm for the project. Plenty of pages in Eternus felt rushed and lacked crucial detail where it was needed most.

Eternus #3

As you delve into the fantastical world of Eternus comic #3, prepare yourself for an exhilarating adventure filled with bizarre twists and turns. While the comic introduces some intriguing concepts, the execution falls short of delivering the epic moments it promises.

The potential for an engaging story is evident in Eternus, but unfortunately, it struggles to reach its full glory due to subpar character illustrations and lackluster dialogue.

While the Eternus graphic novel had a very promising theme and storyline, it ultimately fell short in capturing my attention and failed to truly captivate me.

Despite my disappointment, I can’t deny that reading Eternus was still a valuable experience.

Here are all seven of the Eternus comic covers. In my opinion, Eternus #1 is far superior to all of the other Eternus comic covers, or is it just me?

But hold onto your sword because the Medusa cover for Eternus #1 and the Eternus TP graphic novel?
