    Comics: The Gathering - Thegreatmagnet Oct 25, 2017

    This first issue is frankly amazing. Although it’s a continuation of an epic story, there’s so much crazy new material that it new readers may only be at a slight disadvantage. I would go out on a limb and argue that there’s nothing like this being published right now by anyone. In addition to a strong narrative concept, it’s overflowing with wacky sci-fi worldbuilding at every seam. I just hope that they’re able to continue fleshing out the world and the characters in the next three issues as the story continues to unfold. I’m super excited about this book. Read Full Review

    Kindt is really nailing the Valiant universe right now between this and XO Manowar. There are so many questions built into this opening salvo that I can't wait for the rest of the trip. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Oct 3, 2017

    The way Kindt is able to weave both the far cosmos into a grounded and relateable tale whilst being able to make some theoretically unrelatable godlike beings very human is something to behold. Given my love and admiration of the first three Divinitybooks,I had some huge expectations for this series, and honestly I am shocked that Kindt, Hairsine, Winn and Baron have been able to exceed them. There's a reason thatDivinityis so critically acclaimed – it's time you find out why. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Rowan Grover Oct 26, 2017

    "Eternity" #1 is not only a great continuation of an excellent series, but a perfect jumping on point and wonderful psychedelic exploration that's beautifully human at its core. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Nathanael Beasley Oct 25, 2017

    As much as I loved this first issue, it is not as accessible to new readers as it would like to be. No real explanation is given as to what Abram and Myshka's powers really are, nor of the events leading up to this volume. If you have not already, be sure to pick up a copy of the excellent Divinity #0, released back in August. It does a fantastic job of introducing all of the main cast and with gorgeous artwork that pays for itself. For fans of Divinity, you are in for a treat. The Divinity/Eternity saga is one for the top ten lists. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 25, 2017

    Eternity #1 was worth the wait and the hype. Abram and Myshka are going where no other Valiant hero has gone before, and probably ever will go. A lot of what we are introduced to in this first issue definitely leaves you wanting more when for as much as we do know, there's a whole lot more to discover. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Willesden Oct 24, 2017

    Eternity is a good jumping on point for new readers, however it makes more sense with a little back reading into the character of Divinity. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 3, 2017

    Valiant may have taken a page out of the Dark Horse publishing manual, utilising mini series format rather than an ongoing book. This really works for a book that is looking to deliver a certain type of vibe, where a change in creators coulddisrupt the quality of the story that is being told. It also helps generate a level of excitement and anticipation in fans. After the realityaltering heaviness of Stalinverse, it's refreshing tosee Kindttackle something that is a tad more personal.

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Oct 24, 2017

    The artwork is a joy to behold. It more than makes up for a story that might be laid out a bit more sparsely than we're used to from Kindt. It's a pleasure navigating these worlds, beholding the majestic creatures, the Daliesque vistas. (Even the lemon-headed Cyclops messenger embodies a remarkably graceful form, simultaneously feminine and phallic.) Enjoy the eye candy. If history is any indication, a good story is bound to follow.

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Wolf Oct 4, 2017

    The only thing decent about this book was the cover. In fact, the cover's so awesome Valiant should give the artists responsible for it a raise. Because of these brave souls, this series will actually sell a few copies. Read Full Review
