Will the Gods Return One Day?

Eternals_1976_#001_13Here’s Jack’s intro to his Eternals series. Click on the image to enlarge it. This is one of the only times I recall seeing the actual cover for the next issue in a book. Maybe Jack had turned in the first two books at the same time, or maybe they delayed publishing the first issue and Jack had already done issue 2 so they had a stat of the cover. I wonder who did that Ikaris figure to the left, and Ajak. Herb Trimpe perhaps?
