Love the balance between the three groups and each character is so strong even with a few panels. The schism between the three groups is also so strong there's so much potential here for some rewarding drama.
My only complaint is that two years in and THE FIVE have not been as developed as they should. Always side characters even when they're directly involved. I more

"Patience, Moira, Patience. Eternals are Eternal. If nothing else, we will win by erosion."

One of the best openings to an event comic I've seen in a long time. I'm a DC fanatic, but as of now Gillen is wiping the floor with Dark Crisis. The pacing was fantastic and the stakes feel grounded because of all the build-up since Eternals and even Inferno/Immortal X-men.

To anyone who read this and thought, "where has this been all my life?"

Do yourself a favor and read the 14 pr so issues of eternals that preceded this series. Same writer. Same amazing storytelling.

But yea, this was a bang up start for an event comic. Feels large, feels epic, has plenty of action and phenomenal art from one of Marvel's golden boys.

Oh this was good! Certainly the real star here is Pepe Larraz, who returns from his hiatus with some truly incredible work, but Duggan is also awake and engaged in a way he hasn't always been on this title. Heroes infiltrating an evil casino is an idea that's been done before and better — we're far from the epoch-making Hickman era here — but Duggan has fun with it and intertwines it well with more
