    The art isn't exactly doing the series any favors now, but the core of Eternals is very appealing. The Knaufs are following up on Gaiman's plot threads much more aptly than I would have expected. While I wouldn't sugegst starting with this issue, take advantage of the slow week by catching up with Ikaris, Thena, and friends. Read Full Review

    Although I must admit that the closing narrative voice each issue is still not working. The classic "Stan Lee" hyperbolic excess is clever and fun, but really doesn't reflect the rest of the book. This is a good series that doesn't need to rely on a gimmick like that, especially since it really isn't carried out throughout the rest of the issues. Read Full Review

    These are the gods of the Marvel Universe and they spend their time acting like characters from a third-rate television soap opera. But even "Heroes" has some characters that you might care about, or find interesting on some level. "Eternals," in the hands of Charles and Daniel Knauf, doesn't even have that. All it has is the painterly art of Daniel Acuna, doing some of the best work of his career on a comic that's nowhere near as good as it looks. Read Full Review
