Users who pulled this comic:


  1. While he looks a little like Cyclops in those glasses and the hair, I loved the character pre 52 reboot.

  2. Lemire? I’m in! Any know the page count on this one?

    • Looks like the same number as the other $3.99 comics in DC’s lineup, but it’s all one story (instead of a main story and a backup), so it’s pretty meaty.

  3. Never heard of the character, but I’ll try anything with Lemire’s name on it.

    It actually sounds like a good pilot for an ongoing, or at least a decent mini

    • Golden Age comic book kid who could summon people from history. Re-invited as kid who could summon demons who PRETEND to be people from history by Grant Morrison for Vertigo in the early 90s.

  4. Well, this looks closer to the classic version of the character than the Rose and the Thorn. Don’t know if that’s saying much.

  5. Really enjoyed this. I would be interested in more, especially with that ending.

  6. This was really good!

  7. Ya this was great, hope to see more

    God I hope this is one of the new projects Lemire is working on! (I’m willing to bet it is!)

  9. I hate to say this considering everyone else’s opinions, but I was a little let down by this. The overall story has me somewhat interested, but it was pretty easy to see coming and I found myself shaking my head at a lot of the dialogue. A 3, something that was entertaining, but not something I’m sure I will buy again.

  10. So…. it’s basically PUSHING DAISIES isn’t it?

    • That was exactly what I thought! But without an amazing cast that included Green, Chenoweth, and Swoozie…felt like a cheap knock off. I love Lemire’s work…this however was a clunker. The kid in the back of the really good chorus that’s tone deaf, the nun with no underwear on…okay, maybe not THAT gross.

    • That was a great show! This is a good book, I thought. Not a clunker to me, but it did need a little bit of something. Maybe because the first dead guy was so unlikable it became predictable?

  11. This wasn’t bad at all. I thought the art was wonderful, and the writing was pretty good. Interesting character intro for the New DCU.

  12. Thought this was fantastic, looking forward to more. I’ve been wanting a good anthology title from DC and I was luke-warm on G.I. Combat.

  13. Brilliant loved it but the one thing that I didn’t like is that it was just a one shot. I think Lemire did a brilliant job of creating the universe and I’d love to see more of it.

  14. I really enjoyed the characters and the story and would love to see Kid Eternity expanded into his own series. My only complaint was a number of spelling/proofreading mistakes that would take me out of the story momentarily when I found them. Otherwise Lemire was great as always and I’m on board for the next National Comics ish.

  15. really enjoyed this……….felt like a good TV show!
