When Jack Kirby returned to Marvel in the 1970s, scores of amazing concepts would spring forth from his limitless imagination — and The Eternals was one of his best. Kirby unveiled a secret history of humanity, races known as Eternals and Deviants, and a host of towering Celestials come to bear judgment on Earth! Following Kirby came Peter B. Gillis, Sal Buscema, Walter Simonson, Roy Thomas and Mark Texeira to continue to weave stories within the epic mythology. Now, here is the complete classic saga of the Eternals!

After five years at DC, the architect of the Marvel Universe came back in 1976. And once again, “no one could top Kirby when it came to universe building.” From Ralph Macchio’s new introduction to this volume. Following Ragnarok, here was a new concept of good and evil: Eternals, Deviants, and Homo sapiens. Macchio went from a fan letter-writer when the series began, to editor at Marvel, so he was there through it all. “As awesome as Jack’s other cosmic creations at Marvel and elsewhere, the Celestials top them all…they represent all the figures and forces we encounter in life that somehow determine our fate and that we are utterly powerless to influence. The Celestials are far beyond good and evil. They are not villains in the tradition of the Red Skull or Doctor Doom. They simply are. Deal with it.”

“[the] head honcho of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has announced that the Eternals will play a major role in Phase Four of the enormously successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. Their own feature film is soon to debut.”
