To be completely honest, this whole video about Marvel's The Eternals comics is a thinly veiled excuse to plug my new podcast with Tristan from @Step Back called It's Probably (not) Aliens! But along the way, we also discuss the history of these characters and how Jack Kirby got the inspiration from the incredibly popular book Chariots of the Gods, a book that has only done harm in this world because it paved the way for History Channel's Ancient Aliens series. Oops!
Tristan also made a video on his channel about Ancient Aliens a while back! Go watch it!
Please listen to It's Probably (not) Aliens anywhere you get your podcasts!
