Marvel reveals Eternals vs. Avengers of 1,000,000 BCE in ‘Eternals: Celestia’ #1

‘Eternals: Celestia’ #1 is a new one-shot out this October.

Marvel Comics has announced a new one-shot by Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribić called Eternals: Celestia #1. The one-shot will pit the Avengers of 1,000,000 BCE against the Eternals further expanding on Gillen and Ribić’s Eternals series. Out on October 6th, the one-shot will focus on Ajak and Makkari whose quest for answers leads them into a fierce battle against a certain group of Avengers…

“When developing Eternals, Ajak and Makkari were two of the characters I was most excited about,” Gillen said in a press release sent to AIPT. “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. 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.’”
