Kid Eternity book  .

Accompanying the writer is Duncan Fegredo, whose drawings are amazing; often they're organized as double panels, and they jump out of the page-or rather suck you in. Vivid, nervous, acid, majestic, always inventive, always equal to the task. ��9 I'm very happy of having spent.

Duncan Fegredo did some wonderful work here - you should check it out. Kid Eternity has the same fractured, disorienting, and insightful approach, and while the art in both books are handled by different artists, Kid Eternity has the same eerie, painterly look that Dave McKean brought to Arkham Asylum. Both books are about pushing through the darkness to get back into the light, so the art style is perfect for Morrison's subject matter. Would I recommend this book to readers who are more accustomed to straightforward comics? No.

So it's not your typical Grant Morrison book - this is something a little different. It's not exactly what I expected, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Here you've got something that fits smack dab into the late 80s/early 90s goth era, full of dark themes of self-loathing and angst. That said, at times it feels like it's laid on pretty thick. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly feels a bit dated today. Anyway, the story itself is a bit harder to describe... It starts with a bunch of disjointed ideas all spinning in several directions, but once it gets going, all of the storylines tie together and the puzzle pieces click into place. There's a pretty wild twist toward the end as well, I don't want to spoil anything but the big reveal is a real cracker.

Oh I almost forgot, the artwork! It's gorgeous. It's a bit painted, a bit jagged and totally weird. Duncan Fegredo did some wonderful work here - you should check it out.

If you haven't read it, pick it up. It would feel right at home wedged between your Sandman and Hellblazer collection.

The 3 1/2 star rating initially threw me when I considered buying this book, but when you're talking about a writer like Grant Morrison, his work will always have its fair share of supporters and detractors. The guy's mind is always wrapped around far-out concepts, and depending on the complexity of those concepts, some people just don't have the patience for that. That's totally understandable. As a Grant Morrison fan, though, I trusted the name enough to give Kid Eternity a shot.

This strangely written, beautifully illustrated mini-series revolves around an old and obscure comic book character--the book's namesake--and uses that character as a means to explore and reassess the afterlife, or rather, how others perceive it to be. It's difficult to sum up the story because it jumps around a lot, but it follows Kid Eternity and the ghost of a standup comedian as they try to rescue the former's guardian/partner from Hell.

What I find interesting about this story and the way it's laid out is that it's sort of a companion piece to Arkham Asylum, which Morrison worked on a year previously. Kid Eternity has the same fractured, disorienting, and insightful approach, and while the art in both books are handled by different artists, Kid Eternity has the same eerie, painterly look that Dave McKean brought to Arkham Asylum. Both books are about pushing through the darkness to get back into the light, so the art style is perfect for Morrison's subject matter.

Would I recommend this book to readers who are more accustomed to straightforward comics? No. However, if you want to be surprised and challenged by a graphic novel, I highly recommend it. A lot of ideas and characters come at you from all sides when you first dive into it, but it will reward your attention the second time around, and once you get a chance to absorb the strangeness and subtleties, the end becomes even more thought-provoking.

Don't think that 3 and a half stars is a bad rating. Sincerely consider this a middle of the road rating for a peculiar graphic novel that might or might not appeal to you. Pretty ambiguous suggestion huh? But hear me out. The storyline demands that you put attention to detail and to take each page and soak it up in its entirety. This might or might not be a good thing for some people, but seeing as I really enjoyed the artistic sense of the novel, I consider it a pro rather than a con. Kid Eternity is a weird title, no doubt about it. But guess what, there are people out there who love weird titles. I'm a big David Lynch fan and it might seem moronic to love works of film I don't fully understand, but I just try to take an experience and inspiration with it, and Kid Eternity, like Lynch, offer a lot of material to mull over and think about. It's not as surreal, polished or beautiful as the Sandman series, but it is thought provoking and I enjoyed it enough to know I'll re-read it. The 3 star rating focuses on the story arc because it feels jumpy and maybe that's what the author was going for, but at times you can't help but need to go back two pages to re-read something just to be sure. In general, a good title for anyone into fantastic noir motif literature with a unique and darkly beautiful artistic style.

Grant Morrison is one of those comic writers that are required reading. In most cases that I've read, that is a true statement. Kid Eternity is a great character with an unusual power. I can definitely see how the character fit Morrison and the Vertigo label. Unfortunately, this book didn't resonate with me. Here's some thoughts:
1. I didn't buy this TPB from Amazon.
2. I purchased a reading copy cheaply.
3. The art, by Duncan Fregredo, appears to be painted. Art is very nice, but the story and layout make it difficult to consume,
4. For being named Kid Eternity, the Kid is not in the collection near enough. Additionally, his powers are minimally used.
5. The story is more about a murderer, a dying comedian and a girl. I started the read and ended the read wondering why I cared about these 3 people. It's a convoluted story and the layout makes it difficult to follow.

I wanted to like this book because I really like the character's concept. But I was not able to enjoy it and I even struggled to even finish reading it.
