An Eternals question

Filed under: jack kirby — Tom Bondurant @ 1:10 am
Thanks to the magic of trade paperbacks, I’ve finally read all of Jack Kirby’s Eternals, and … well, I liked it a good bit, but let’s just say I think we have a lot to talk about.

Before I launch into a long blog post, though, I’ve got just one question:

Surely someone besides me has noticed all the similarities to New Gods? (And if I might be allowed a follow-up — boy, Kirby loved hidden civilizations, huh? The Inhumans, the Asgardians, the Hairies….)

I mean, I was reading these issues and thinking “do-over,” and I can’t have been the only one.

Anyway, I do have more to say about Eternals, but I have to get that out of the way first. Back soon — I promise — with those thoughts.
