One of the coolest -- and most anticipated -- graphic novelrelated 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
