This is going to be good.

Def picking this up. I have been interested in a story like this for quite a long time. His appearance in the movie and whats still being teased to come will boost sales too.

I hope this is good.

Not any random writer can do Thanos justice. His last two arcs are proof of that.

So, from what I'm reading, this will affect the marvel universe. So I gotta pick this up because not only is it important, but it seems to be on a bigger scale than the previous thanos origin books.

amazing covers.

Fantastic four, the dark knight rises. Yeah that titles gettin a little overused. Rise, rises, rising. No more lazy titles. Something like deaths embrace, something that really stands out and makes you think of thanos. His character brings a lot and theres a lot of symbolism that could be used.

Did they ever explain how Thanos and Star-Lord escaped from the Cancerverse.? Because it kinda seems like they're glossing over that.
DanteSparda - 1/18/2013, 2:49 PM

Totally agreed.
TheAbomination - 1/18/2013, 2:49 PM

xstryker - 1/18/2013, 5:15 PM
This is a good fit for Bianchi's style.
KeefNCookies - 1/18/2013, 5:42 PM
No they havent, and I'm despising Marvel deeply for it. Couldnt stand the crap that was Avengers Assemble's first story arc.
Shadowmaster35 - 1/18/2013, 8:31 PM
Gonna LOVE IT!!
greenlanter13 - 1/18/2013, 11:06 PM
Gonna pick this up
loki668 - 1/18/2013, 11:21 PM
Loooove Thanos! I've been waiting for this! I just hope that the story does the Mad Titan justice! A good start would be to explain just how the hell Thanos escaped the Cancerverse. It's something that they need to explain instead of just bringing him back. That's just laziness.
