In 1976, Jack Kirby introduced what was to be his final great Marvel Comics creation: the Eternals With nearly four decades of experience creating iconic characters, Kirby stretched his imagination to the limit for his last tale.

Since Kirby's groundbreaking work, the Eternals and their malevolent counterparts, the Deviants, have become vital parts of the Marvel Universe. Awarding-winning creators such as Neil Gaiman have revisited the concept, finding new levels of meaning in Kirby's visionary work.
