Released a month ahead of the latest Marvel film on 5the November, this 164-page edition collects The Eternals #1 -6 by Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribic, published by Marvel US earlier this year.
Superhuman warriors created by a race of ancient space-faring beings, the Eternals fight a never-ending war against the corrupt and chaotic Deviants. But with the Prime Eternal dead and the resurrection machine offline, their survival – and that of the whole Earth – is no longer certain. As the recently returned Ikaris investigates the cause of these problems, he soon discovers the being responsible – none other than the Mad Titan Thanos!
From the genius mind of writer Kieron Gillen and the supreme artistic talent of Esad Ribić comes a new beginning and a deadly challenge for Marvel’s most enigmatic and unusual heroes – the Eternals!
Next month’s issue will spotlight Hawkeye.
