BONUS REVIEW by GARY OWENS


An intriguing book about long-lived beings who somehow have soap opera lives. To set the stage, let’s acknowledge the Neil Gaiman precursor to this series; after years of memory loss, Eternals are awakening to find that they have great power. Great power, coupled with loose ends: there’s an awakened Celestial in their midst; Eternals who wish to destroy the Earth; and, worse, a being who wishes to destroy the Eternals. This is from the backstory page, though I still was partially lost for the first read (mostly gone with the second). The art in this issue, with the simple backgrounds, fit the series well, but really Neil Gaimen’s precursor took much of the tension out of the Eternals, for me, in that they seem, how should I say? Ah, yes--resilient. That, I think, needs to be addressed before I get overly stressed about the day-to-day worries of long-lived beings.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
