The long-awaited return of the best-selling sci-fi comic book is finally here with Eve: Children of the Moon and it was definitely worth the wait.
Award-winning author and lauded professor Victor LaValle (Sabretooth, Destroyer), along with artist Jo Mi-Gyeong (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance) return for the sequel to the original series at Boom! Studios. Brittany Peer adds colors while AndWorld Design handled the lettering.
Eve seemingly saved the world once already, embarking on a perilous quest to protect what remained of humanity after a deadly virus outbreak…but the story doesn’t end there! Eve, Eve’s sister, and Wexler face new challenges, and a darkness from the past. Eve: Children of the Moon continues to ask-what kind of world are we leaving for our children?
As a massive fan of the first five-issue story arc, the debut issue of the sequel series was well worth the wait. LaValle and Mi-Gyeong nail their creative skills once again and leave you wanting to continue the story into the next few issues.
While reading the original run is highly recommend, LaValle does a great job with recapping major plot points in this first issue of the sequel. However, again read the first series…you won’t be disappointed.
Although the comic splits almost evenly between green warmer tones and blue darker tones Mi-Gyeong and Peer do an outstanding job with allowing us to know where we are in each panel. Big fan of artists who know how to do snow right in a comic book, this includes cover artist Ario Anindito.
As the solicitation explains, Eve and Eve: Children of the Moon is perfect for fans of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen‘s Little Monsters (Image Comics) and Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss‘ What’s The Furthest Place From Here? (Image Comics). The theme of children fighting to survive is popular right now and those running with the story line are super successful at it as Little Monsters and What’s The Furthest Place From Here? are two amazing comics in 2022.
Eve: Children of the Moon #2 hits your local comic book shop on November 23, 2022. The first five issues of Eve should also be available at your LCS in trade paperback.
