Marvel Comics will relaunch the classic Jack Kirby series The Eternals with writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Uncanny X-Men) and artist Esad Ribic (Secret Wars, King Thor) as the creative team. The series will launch with Eternals #1 in November.

Marvel released few details about the new series. Kirby’s original Eternals were a group of godlike beings who fought the gods of traditional mythology before leaving the earth, only to return to fight the evil Deviants, and both groups also had to reckon with their creators, the Celestials. Marvel announced in June that it is collecting the original Eternals stories as a prestige Monster Edition (see “Marvel to Publish Kirby’s ‘The Eternals’ in ‘Monster Size’ Format”).

Ribic will be the artist for the main cover for Eternals #1, and Marvel announced there will be variant covers by Alex Ross, Walt Simonson, Peach Momoko, Alan Davis, Art Adams, Mahmud Asrar, Jen Bartel, Bosslogic, Russell Dauterman, Dave Johnson, Jeff Johnson,Mike Del Mundo, Jenny Frison, Rian Gonzales, Inhyuk Lee, J. Scott Campbell (regular and virgin), Joe Quesada, Khary Randolph, Humberto Ramos, Ron Lim, Otto Schmidt, Superlog, Greg Land, Takashi Okazaki, Dan Panosian, Skottie Young, Leinil Yu, and Frank Cho plus “Hidden Gem” variants by John Romita Jr., Jack Kirby, and Brian Pelletier, a “headshot” variant by Todd Nauck, a “design variant” cover by Ribic, a blank variant, and a Kirby Krackle variant.
