    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 22, 2021

    Eternals #8 sometimes feels like Gillen showing off in the best possible way. Ribics art has a few little problems but its at its best when it needs to be, with Wilsons colors making it that much better. This is still the best comic Marvel is putting out. Read Full Review

    Ribic crafts some beautiful imagery throughout the issue. The characters are dramatic and dynamic throughout and Thanos is truly menacing. Read Full Review

    The Eternals are under new management, but what does this mean for our titular heroes, and those theyve joined to learn to change their primary programming? Will the new characters added by Gillen and Ribic catch hold with older and newer fans? Only time will tell. Hopefully theyll all live long enough to see. Read Full Review

    There are no large action set-pieces, yet Ribic's pages still manage to draw you in and hold your attention. But that's just it"this issue neither sets up the book's demise nor makes it an award contender. Eternals #8 just is. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Dec 15, 2021

    Eternals #8 continues to show more of the slow but steady progress of the small group of Eternals learning to change their ways. The book tries to show how each of them are trying to change in themselves while living among Deviants. Some are better executed than others, to say the least. The real stars are Thanos and Druig, who steal the show again as they are the ones driving the plot forward in this series right now. Read Full Review

    This is great. I just hope the narrative doesn't get too convoluted.

    This new arc continues and this remains the best book marvel is putting out.

    Gillian has this world and these characters down to a science. Hes don't a great job of introducing characters, concepts and motivations in expedience and without bogging down the actual content. The book is very loaded with story on multiple fronts and manages to take all of its cast in smart directions while still carrying the looming threat.

    Thanos as a character is interesting because for some he will never be as good as he was when he debuted, and he truly is for all intents and purposes a pretty straightforward character, so its easy to both not to his threat justice and also to overcomplicate him to where he loses what made him iconic more

    Not as good as last issue, but still pretty good. I just worry about the quality of the book when Gillen will take over Immortal X-Men. It will be really hard to maintain this level of quality while concentrating also on the biggest X-Men book of the new line. Until then, I can only hope this will draw more people in because I think it's safe to say it's the best Marvel book right now, by far.

    It was a pretty solid read with some cool art as always. It's definitely slow in terms of plot but, it does across as interesting for what it is.
