I knew nothing about Eternals before reading this, and pretty much just got it because it’s by Neil Gaiman. So I didn’t know about the original series (and still don’t know much about it). Some of the character designs and ideas are kinda cool, and the art works well enough, but I don’t think Gaiman managed to rescue this from the wtfery of its apparent origins.
The longer he drew out the mystery, the better it was; all the explanation was kinda… this is what you were setting up for? Really?
I don’t think this works well in a world with registration and Civil War and Tony Stark, either.
