Okay, this took me by surprise a little as I hadn’t realised this was a limited series, or was it? It certainly wasn’t advertised as such. But then this series was originally timed to release at the same time as the movie, and the pandemic rather ruined that plan. It also seems that the story will be continuing in a series of one shots, so at least this isn’t the end for Gillen’s Eternals.
And it’s a very good thing that it’s not because this series has been quite brilliant. I’m not really going to talk about what actually happens in this issue as that would rather spoil the ending of this excellent series. Suffice it to say that it is both epic and heart wrenching in equal measure.
The writing is superb, as we’ve come to expect over the years from Mr Gillen, and the art is simply stunning…as we’ve come to expect from Mr Ribic. The two combined are just comics an whole other level.
I simply can’t recommend this series enough. If you like your super heroes on the thoughtful side with a heavy dose of new mythology, Eternals is the book for you.
