    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 10, 2021

    Eternals #2 sets up a cosmic murder mystery for its titular gods and resurrects one of the greatest villains in the history of the Marvel Universe. I highly recommend this series to fans old and new, especially if they want to know more about the Eternals. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Feb 13, 2021

    Ikaris versus Thanos in a battle through time and space. Kieron Gillen provide the high quality words while Esab Ribic and Matt Wilson provide the grandiose visuals that do more than reverb with a more ancient, mythological time. Another grandiose issue that only elevates a set of characters who have not always had it so good. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 10, 2021

    Eternals #2 is a great book. It starts with a great action scene and gets better from there, with Gillen adding more and more to the story. Who is behind Zuras's death and the damage to the Great Machine? What is Sersi's plan? How does it all come together? Gillen makes readers want to know the answers to these questions expertly. Ribic's art is the perfect compliment to his script, giving it the sense of scale and grandeur it needs. Eternals is shaping up to be something special. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jake Palermo Feb 10, 2021

    The Eternals see the world and time differently than we do in Eternals #2, and that's what makes them so grand in scale. For these gods, the present and future are one and the same. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Feb 10, 2021

    There is a ton to work with in this weeks ETERNALS #2. Gillen is simultaneously reintroducing the ETERNALS, providing fanfare with the return of THANOS, and dropping mysterious plot nuggets that furnish new and old readers with some pretty extensive questions. Moreover, Ribi packs that extra punch that helps to raise the level of excitement alongside Gillens intrigue. Together, this creative team continues to elevate my level of interest into an area that never really resonated with me before. I highly recommend giving ETERNALS a fair shake. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God bless. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Feb 15, 2021

    Bottom Line: It might be a little early to say, but Kieren Gillen definitely deserves points for scale. This is clearly a book meant to reach out across places and generations to remind readers of the rich non superhero lore Marvel has to offer. What more could you ask for from such a beautifully drawn, big-thinking sci-fi action romp as this? Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Josh Rathbun Feb 14, 2021

    If I had one concern with Eternals #2, it would be whether this book sticks the landing. Is the focus on Thanos or the mystery killer of Zuras? Is it both? And who is narrating the issue? I know that not everything can be revealed. I liked Eternals #2 but I feel the Eternals need to focus their efforts going in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 10, 2021

    Eternals #2 is an interesting comic but is a bit scattered in its presentation. Too many threats and too many concepts are on the table making the end result a bit jumbled and a little confusing. But, there's truly beautiful moments. Any of the plot threads could have been a comic by itself. But, all together they feel like a slice of something bigger, none of it stand on its own. While the debut was a home run of a start this second issue loses much of the momentum. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - acnbat Feb 10, 2021

    While this comic will try to get you hyped for seeing Thanos, hes barely in it and the issue kind of slows down to tell a flashback that may or may not be important. If you want to see the Eternals fight Thanos and the Deviants, then you should wait till the next issue for more. If you want to see more of the Eternals drama, then this comic might be for you.
