    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 26, 2022

    Eternals #9 brings the action and the heart. Gillen does a great job throughout and sets the Eternals on the next phase of their battle against Thanos. Ribics pencils are a bit less detailed than usual but still good, and Vilanova definitely shines in this issue. All in all, another great issue of this series. Read Full Review

    Ribic and Valinova deliver some great, intense and beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. The tone of the story is perfectly captured by the art. Read Full Review

    While the vast majority of this issue falls in line with the rest of the series, with Gillen's dynamite scripting and lineart from Ribic and Guiu Vilanova, a reveal towards the end cheapens the story at hand a little bit. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Feb 6, 2022

    The artwork by Esad Ribic, Guiu Vilanova, Matthew Wilson, and Clayton Cowles maintains the "Renaissance paintings of superhero conflicts" level of quality you've come to know in this series (one close-up shot of Thanos seemed a little unfinished). Still, the story less moves like the arrow it uses to describe Ikaris and more like an overloaded cargo truck veering from lane to lane. There's good stuff here, but this chunk of it doesn't give you enough to make the ride enjoyable enough to buy. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Jan 19, 2022

    Eternals #9 is a more exciting issue as it continues Thanos' invasion of the Deviant city of Lemuria. Once again, the comic focuses more on Thanos and his interactions with the city then it does on the Eternals except for a couple of them. The second artist on the book was a surprise, but their portion of the comic was well-drawn. Read Full Review
