The Great 8s: ETERNAL EMPIRE, STAINED

Our Rating

Welcome back to The Great 8s – our look at 8/10 rated indie comics you’ll find at your comic shop NOW! This week you’ll find two debut issues – ETERNAL EMPIRE #1 from Image, and STAINED #1 from 451 Media Group! This week we include input from mega-reviewer Stacy “Geeky Goddess” Lott! Let’s get started with…

ETERNAL EMPIRE #1 (Image) – The team of Sarah Vaughn and Jonathan Luna who brought you ALEX + ADA begin a new story and a completely different mystery in ETERNAL EMPIRE. We start with a strange ceremony and skip quickly ahead by 141 years to a land of terrible oppression…and to one woman who dares to try and escape. What she finds gives the real kick to start off this series. ETERNAL EMPIRE is beautifully written and illustrated – with a plot that draws the reader in from the first page. This is an excellent start to the series, and an 8/10

STAINED #1 (451 Media Group) – “Stained #1 is a brilliant debut from David Baron…It is great to look at, has tons of action and a fast paced feel.” CLICK HERE for Stacy “Geeky Goddess” Lott’s FULL 8/10 review!
