    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 30, 2021

    Eternals #5 is another triumph for this book. Gillen expands on the lore of the Eternals, introducing a new faction and using infographic pages to drop even more secrets and info on readers than before. Ribic's art is outstanding throughout, really capturing the emotion and power of Gillen's script. This issue sets up a lot of great stuff, and it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Jun 30, 2021

    Eternals #5 finally brings some major development to the Eternals' murder mystery and the Great Machine's malfunction. However, the reveals may not be the most impactful once readers find out who's responsible. But now it feels like the series is getting back on track and things are heating up for the better. Hopefully the next issue adds more to the story and keeps up the momentum it started in this issue. Read Full Review
