Gaiman takes an idea from legendary comics creator Jack Kirby and brings it to a new generation of readers. Overall it is a pretty good story with the good blend of mythology and imagination that Gaiman is known for. The Eternals have been gone from the world, and now they are waking up once more. They lived their lives basically as common humans, and they have to remember who they are once more in order to save the world. The events happen during the Civil War story arc, with some small appearance by Iron Man and some of the Avengers. The art is also very good in this volume, plus this volume does include some extras such as cover galleries, art galleries so you can see how some of the characters looked in Kirby's day compared to today, and an extended interview with Neil Gaiman. Marvel fans will probably like this one. Gaiman fans who like his other graphic novel work may like it as well even if they are not "real comics readers." Overall, a pretty nice story. ( )

I preferred this over the last few graphic novels I read, the plot was more streamlined and easier to follow. I also liked Iron Man. ( )

The Five Faces of ETERNALS

Despite being mostly recognized for his fantasy, Gaiman takes a largely successful spin into modern-day America and immortal humanoid heroes living mundane mortal human lives.

Romita Jr.'s art style is timeless and simple, yet works effectively particularly during big splash images and fight scenes. It's not the best at picturing emotion, though.

The climactic fight sequence with the Avengers is entertaining and truly shows the potential of the Eternals as a team.

Gaiman's characteristic humor and bizarre character traits shine through but fit the story surprisingly well.

😐

The story takes a good while to get going properly. The first couple of issues are mostly padding as the reader waits for the obvious reveal to be thrown into the mix halfway through.

Gaiman has to handle a large cast of largely unknown and anonymous characters. He struggles with utilizing them all evenly throughout the story and most of them feel distant.

The plot is surprisingly clichéd and by the book for being written by Gaiman. The twists are foreseeable.

The Eternals themselves barely do much of value in the story. Gaiman introduces some plotlines that never see a resolution in the volume.

The ending feels somewhat anticlimactic and not on the same level as issues 5 and 6 before it.

Somehow, this doesn't have that same magic touch as Gaiman's fantasy stories or the historical Marvel 1602.

While Gaiman's is doing an impressively sleek job of bringing Kirby's "Eternals" into the modern Marvel continuity, the actual resulting story is a little old hat. The immortal beings who do not remember that's what they are have been done more memorably in other franchises, and while there are some interesting twists in the agenda of the various seeming-to-be villains throughout the narrative, it just doesn't add up to a particularly interesting story. It's an OK read, many scenes are individually rather fun, but as a whole this is not one I'm likely to ever revisit. That said, it definitely sets up an interesting new status quo by the end, which seems to have been one of the main objectives. ( )
