KID ETERNITY #1 by Neal von Flue
Neal Von Flue is an artist whose day-job consists of teaching art, painting murals, drawing pictures, and accomplishing a wide array of art services. By night, he likes to make comics about old folk songs and play banjo and musical saw in Hang Dog Expression.
Neal says: My idea is to relaunch Kid Eternity as an all ages series. Instead of growing older, the kid would be still young and filled with all the angst and regular emotions that a young boy had, the Lost-Boy rebellion, etc. The deal is to see how a 10 year old who can summon any adult (or child) from the depths of history would react to any given situation. What kind of problems would he come across and how could he use his (possibly) limited knowledge of history to solve them? You know darn well he'd be pulling out cowboys and pirates and whatnot, but would he like these living icons when they got here? and furthermore, when he's not crime-fighting, would he call up Van Gogh for painting lessons, or Einstein to help him with his homework? What kinds of adventure and frustrations come about when a kid can run amuck in history in order to solve their problems?
Kid Eternity was created by Otto Binder and Sheldon Moldoff. Read more...
