Eternal Stupidity

without comments

So in this space today, you were supposed to get a review of the first issue of Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr.’s new Eternals miniseries. I wanted to help persuade all of my Gaiman-loving but not necessarily comics-reading friends to find their way to a comics shop to pick the book up. (Assuming that the book’s good enough to recommend… oh, who am I fooling? It’s Gaiman.)

You might notice that this ain’t that.

And you know why? Because the guy who runs my local comics shop apparently has a brain the size of an M & M underneath his dyed-blonde mullet. Read the rest of this entry »

Preview of Neil Gaiman’s “The Eternals”

with 3 comments

Newsarama has an eight-page preview of the first issue of Neil Gaiman’s The Eternals miniseries which starts up in a couple of weeks. I’ve never had any interest in these characters before (or, honestly, in any of Jack Kirby’s late-career creations), but damn if this preview doesn’t get me wanting to read it, what with its compelling opening setup and some spectacular artwork by John Romita Jr.

Not that, y’know, I needed any incentive to get me reading a Gaiman series.

Anyway, I know there’s a number of people reading this who are Gaiman fans but who aren’t necessarily familiar with Gaiman’s comics work or who might not realize he had a new series coming out, so consider this post something of a public service announcement for you guys. If you want some backstory on these characters (though, honestly, I sincerely doubt you’ll need it), the Wikipedia has all you need to know.

The first issue of The Eternals comes out on June 21.
