Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
One of the coolest -- and most anticipated -- graphic novel–related projects to come along in years is bestselling author Neil Gaiman and veteran comic book artist John Romita Jr.'s ambitious reinterpretation of Jack Kirby's epic Eternals saga, which was launched in the mid-1970s by Marvel Comics and, after never really finding its niche in the convoluted Marvel universe, discontinued after 19 issues.

After experiencing bizarre dreams about giant gods, mechanical entities, and nightmarish monsters, sleep-deprived med student Mark Curry's life is turned upside down when he realizes that he is one of the Eternals, a group of immortal super-humans created by an alien race known as the Celestials. Soon, he and his Eternal counterparts find themselves locked in a winner-take-all battle against the Deviants, a race of Lovecraftian shapeshifters who worship the Dreaming Celestial, a giant armored being who, after a million-year slumber, is finally reawakening…

Fans of Gaiman's groundbreaking Sandman comic book series for DC Comics' Vertigo imprint will be blown away by this updated version of the Eternals saga. Gaiman's storytelling savvy combined with Romita's distinct and compelling artwork makes this omnibus collection of all seven Eternals comic books an absolute must-have for all those who call themselves comic book fans. Godlike powers and immortality are, regrettably, not included. Paul Goat Allen
KLIATT - George Galuschak
The Eternals were created by Jack Kirby in 1976. A short recap, in case you've forgotten: the Eternals are immortal beings forged from the genetic stuff of proto-humans by the Celestials, glittery godlike giants from outer space. The Celestials also made the Deviants, a race of genetic monstrosities. Soon Eternal and Deviant are at war; one hundred Eternals vs. one million Deviants. Since the Eternals are immortal and have god-like powers, it isn't as much of a mismatch as you'd think. Eventually the Celestials return to Earth and solve the Deviant overpopulation problem by eating most of them. They return to outer space; the Eternals remain. Fast-forward a half-million years: the Eternals have lost their memories. Most believe that they are transients (the Eternal word for humans) and are happily following various career paths—medical internist, party planner, wino, dictator of Vorozheika (a former Soviet republic). Enter Ike Harris, a.k.a. Ikaris, an Eternal whose memories are returning. Before he can alert his fellow Eternals, Ikaris is abducted by a pair of Deviants who utilize all of their race's vaunted craftiness trying to kill him. The Deviants worship the Dreaming Celestial, who sleeps beneath San Francisco; if they have their way, he will sleep no more. The Eternals is written by Neil Gaiman, author of the legendary Sandman series; the art is by John Romita Jr., a veteran of the superhero comic industry. The setting is the current-day Marvel Universe. Although the plot gets a bit confusing towards the end, this is still vintage Neil Gaiman and is thus recommended. The price tag is hefty; you may want to wait for the trade paperback. The Eternalscontains comic book violence and is recommended for graphic novel collections where superhero titles are popular.

    Great Story

    The Eternals is a well-written story about god-like beings who have recently remembered that they are gods. It's a good read and woth the money, especially if you are a fan of Neil Gaimon. A welcome break from from capes and spandex.
