I picked this up firstly because it was recommended, and secondly (or predominantly) because Neil Gaiman is the author. I have scarcely devoted any time to reading Neil Gaiman’s graphic novels (where as I love his novels) so I thought I would give this one a go!
I’m not familiar with the original Marvel comic series of the Eternals and I think that this actually helps when reading this book. The reader gets to discover the hidden histories of these ancient characters as the characters themselves realise their lives are not all they appear to be. It is a cleverly unfolding story and each issue provides equal measure of questions and answers to peak your interest.
This book contains the collected first seven issues and it does very much feel like a beginning and back story to greater things to come – I look forward to the action really starting!
