He died as a child, decades before his time, and spent the next 30 years in Hell thanks to a mix-up in the afterlife's bureaucracy. Then a miracle occurred, and the Kid escaped perdition for Earth. His mission: become the new Messiah. His gift: the ability to summon any human, god or devil who ever existed--or who anyone once believed existed--with the cry of a single word... "ETERNITY!" Redeeming humanity, however, is trickier than it seems. From America's forgotten highways to the endless realms of cyberspace, from the clamor of TV talk shows to the chaos of insane asylums, from the siren song of sex to the menace of mad gods, a whole host of forces--good, bad and ugly--have united to thwart the utopian efforts of this savior in sunglasses. Fortunately, he has a little help from his friends--including a hacker, a hobo, Zeus, Freud, Neal Cassady, Marilyn Monroe and many more. When it comes to saving the world, not even the power of Eternity can do it alone... KID ETERNITY BOOK ONE collects the first nine issues of legendary writer Ann Nocenti and superstar artist Sean Phillips' classic VERTIGO saga of magic, madness and the strangeness of the twentieth-century psyche.
