The upcoming Eternals: Celestia one-shot by Kieron Gillen and Kei Zama pits the Eternals against the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC.
Marvel Comics has announced Eternals: Celestia, a new one-shot that pits the eponymous Eternals against a blast from the past: the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC.
Written by Kieron Gillen (the current writer of Marvel’s main Eternals title) and illustrated by Kei Zama with a main cover by Esad Ribić and a variant by Nelson Blake II, Eternals: Celestia #1 is slated to hit comic shops on Wednesday, Oct. 6. Marvel promises that this “revelatory new Eternals chapter” will continue to “expand on the fascinating past and future of Jack Kirby’s iconic creation.”
“The mythos behind the Eternals is currently being redefined in the pages of Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribić’s acclaimed ongoing Eternals series,” Marvel said in its official press release for Gillen and Zama’s Celestia one-shot. “The latest chapter in this bold new era will focus on Ajak and Makkari whose quest for answers leads them into a fierce battle against a certain group of Avengers.”
Celestia‘s official synopsis elaborates, “Now that the truth of their existence is revealed, Ajak and Makkari must pick up the pieces and try to find a road forward… no matter how terrifying it will be, or how their choices will irrevocably shock the rest of the Eternals? And how do the Avengers of 1,000,000 BCE figure into it?”
“When developing Eternals, Ajak and Makkari were two of the characters I was most excited about,” Gillen said. “I had so many ideas. The problem was trying to find a place to introduce them in a way which gives enough space to show what a fascinating, funny and genuinely heartbreaking odd-couple they are.”
The writer continued, “Suffice to say, this is the space, and I can’t wait to show what Kei, Esad and I have cooked up with them. Also, taking the Avengers of 1,000,000 BCE out for a spin. I’ll be honest — the first time I saw Ghost Rider on the back of a Mammoth, I did think ‘I’ll be having some of that, thank you very much.'”
