Also felt it was done 'well enough'. Still getting into the Eternals mythos. There was enough cultural revelations (new to me) and implied impending doom to look forward to next issue.
Preview: Eternals #2
Cover: Very nice image/moment/context though do feel cheated that they didnt even appear in the same room this issue, IIRC.
PrevPage: Excellent AND more clear presentation/display/recap of issue 1. Could almost substitute for that premiere in some respect. Hopefully every Eternal will eventually get headshots here.
Druig: A villain to take seriously. Vorozheika (havent memorized that spelling yet) should definitely be kept in mind when discussing the uniquely MU countries of note from now on. Not sure how he can claim to generate a MORE powerful Uni-mind - thought it was a sum total effect - though not fluent on this phenomena yet.
Legba: Believable to be motivated/conned/welcome to Druig's ursurping.
Dreaming Celestial: Thought them a little taller than a Sentinel but clearly see from the horizon that belief is 'a little' off. Wow, he's big - should be the focus of many a Marvel story while it dwarfs the populace. EXTREMELY GOOD to see The Order in action so soon after cancellation. Thought it odd that their detection methods didnt still work to locate Druig even though they were 'mind-baked' but good of Tony to note this later as a concern. The history of the Eternals has been oft repeated in comics but it's representation here was informative/entertaining/revealing. Presume that the Horde and the total population of 100 count were most welcome addition to the mythos. The one serious nitpick is when it used 4 hyphenated synonyms instead of 3 - hopefully an oversight/error/glitch (it would be neat if they tie in Century of Force Works speech into this jargoning).
Sersi: Well, the good thing is that she looks good this time. Her conversation with Tony seemed too casual/off/mischaracterized. Her comment about Mak being 'All I have' was surprising/defining/news.
Makkari: Like his character development.
Ajak: So, he's a troublemaker, eh? Yep. Skrull. Gotta be. DC thinks so. 'Course this guessing game is so frustrating with no chronological referencing to SI or Incredible Hercules series. Though SHEEPLE was an very good portmanteau word.
Joey: Didn't he have a sibling in a previous mini?
Phastos: Thought it was a real nice detail to have him in Germany as opposed to the USA.
Thena: Where Sersi looks gorgeous, Thena looks impressive. Her shadowed armor looks great. Her conversation with Zuras had a touch of everyman feel to it.
Ikaris: If this is supposed to be his series, it doesn't feel like it yet. He does not come across as that strong a leader from his reputation. The English expressions seemed odd to hear for some reason; sure, they assimilated to USA culture but why would they worry about "knocking on the door" they could transmute with a thought or worry being "on thin ice" when they can levitate? And since, Olympia is in Antarctica - can not stop thinking/hoping/distraction of him teaming up with Ka-zar!!
Gilgamesh: Great ending for an issue. A two in one treat. The Forgotten One's return with bengals bicep bound and the sight of Brazilian babes in bikinis.
