    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy Nov 11, 2008

    If the Annual had been a longer story, this might have gotten another bullet. A half-bullet, for sure. For some readers, the back-up extras will be interesting and new, but for me, they were just page-fillers. I don't need to know anything more about the Young Gods than what Van Lente gave me, especially since I doubt they'll be showing up anywhere else for a while, if ever. And Kirby's story, while cool, has been in my collection for 30 years. Yes, I am an old curmudgeon. Get used to it. Read Full Review

    Even with the flaws in Van Lente's script, I'd like to see him tackle the ongoing "Eternals" series. He would be a great match for the dream-like wonder of Acuna's artwork. As long as he can cut down on the painful gags and one-liners. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Nov 18, 2008

    The two teams battle so that the Young Gods can remind us, repeatedly, that the Eternals are little more than robots that can be downloaded into new bodies after they die, and that it is they who should be humanity's rightful defenders. The Eternals win the fight and the annual ends abruptly with everyone standing around looking moody and bored. Van Lente had 32 pages to work with here, but somehow he managed to waste every one of them. Furthermore it doesn't help that Alixe's art is so painfully unimpressive. Why did Marvel waste their time publishing this? Don't bother buying, you deserve better. Read Full Review
