Title: THANOS
Post by: Perry on November 18, 2016, 06:41:44 AM
Well, not really a "Marvel HEROES Solo Book", but ...
 ;D

Thanos Issue #1

Ohhhhh, this is going to be good. Pure set-up, but the characters we see in this issue, some recently spotted and some I have not seen in a good days age, make this a very intriguing issue.

Jeff Lemire? Okay, yeah, I'm all over that guy's writing
Mike Deadato? Ha, like there is any doubt.
Thanos? Ding, Ding, Ding. We have a winner!!!!

Awesome!  I was hoping this was going to be good!

Yeah, this has better potential than the Aaron mini. At least so far.

 :-\

Not that Aaron's was "bad" I just wanted a little something different.

If there is any other character that I hold a strict bible of interpretation to, it's Thanos

(along with Adam Warlock, Captain Mar-Vell (Kree versions, thank you very much), and duh, Superman ;) )

So...I'm truly curious if this can be good!

You may not like this then.  ;D Just kidding. I only say that because of one thing ... one thing that has yet to be explained, but is still there non-the-less that makes me scratch my head a little. As of now, I have been able to thoroughly enjoy both issues, but I am still confused about a major point in this series. That said ...

Issue #2

I finally found why I am digging this so much. Ha, aside from the two obvious points being the writer and artist  ;D

This book reads like the old Abnett and Lanning Guardians of the Galaxy. That is what this feels like. So strong. Plus, as I was suspecting, this is going to bring around a lot of potential answers to a lot of questions regarding some arc from the past starring other people that I won't say until people start to read this.
 :D :D
Got that?
 ;D :D :D :D

Anyway, take the time, put your feelings of confusions aside after you read issue one (Jimmy  ;)) and enjoy what could be the greatest adventure Marvel has put to paper in a long time. At least since Hickman left. Though this also has the feel of leading up to another "Event", which makes sense as how long can a Thanos book truly last without being part of a larger story, it still has a strong taste that makes it a worthy read each month.

Also, that makes me think of something I will post in Thor ...

If I didn't have to say it, I loved the first issue. Can't wait to continue reading this!!

I think issue #10 is Lemire's last issue and I also think that is about as long as I would want or need a Thanos book to last. Of course I am still enjoying the hell out of it, but yeah, some things need a natural end and I think this story is/should be one of those things.

Man you are so right with this statement.  I love that he brought in random cosmic characters and made them fun to read. Starfox, Terrax, even Thane.

The addition of
the Phoenix force
ramps up the cosmic meter as well.

Okay, I change my mind.  :D Now that I know Donny Cates is coming on, taking over the writing duties, I think I will be more than happy for this title to continue. If his (Cates) other books are any indication, I will be loving his take on Thanos (and his Dr. Strange as well)

And yeah Jeff, I love the use of c and d listers. Use that library of characters!!
 ;D
And the only thing I fear with the Phoenix Force use is its ... overuse. I do like it here, you are right, it was a well done plot devise
(the egg and all)
, but it is beginning to get to the point where eery damn book I read has it in there someway, in some form, even if just a reference. I get it, Marvel. You have a "Resurrection of the Phoenix" mini coming up (which I, and I am sure so many others are eagerly awaiting  ::)) but can we not have every single book mention or show this thing? In fact, I am not even sure if my spoiler use was for the right book. Was that in Thanos or was that in
Guardians
? Or both? I don't know, which proves my point, yeah? (well it proves my memory is shite at least)
 :D

Also agreeing with Jimmy, though I am not sure where I read his feelings on the matter, but I also am not a fan of Thane. Just not a good character. Not one of Hickman's best to say the least (although maybe it was an editorial forced action and he wrote around that?) I like his drive, just not a fan of his. That may not make sense. Shockingly.
 :D :D :D
