Thanos Imperative Ignition 1

Written by DAN ABNETT and ANDY LANNING. Art by BRAD WALKER. Cover by ALEKSI BRICLOT. Thanos is back! On one side you have the Marvel Universe's #1 threat! On the other: a dark new force determined to obliterate everyone! In the middle are the outnumbered and battle-hardened heroes that stand between us and complete decimation! A war has ignited which will combine the galaxy's most dedicated warriors with a collection of heroes that you never saw coming! It's a battle that will span the cosmos, deliver major shocks, and will prove to you why IGN proclaims 'Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning can seemingly do no wrong' and Aint It Cool News raves that Abnett and Lanning consistently deliver 'terrific action, interesting character development, and some pretty good jokes all rolled into one amazing package.'

I caught up on these three last night.  I love what Abnett & Lanning are doing with Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy here.  This is going to be fun.

My only gripe is that it has all of the other cosmic characters in it.  This should be a Guardians only story.  They have enough characters to keep us going.  One exception: I like that the Silver Surfer is going to be a part of this.  I just don't care to see the Inhumans or the Mohawk guy from the Imperial Guard.  Even Nova is not necessary for this adventure.

But I LOVED the big reveal at the end for who the real bad guy is from the Cancerverse.  Should have seen that coming with a name like Cancerverse.

And how will the Mad Titan Thanos choose to take his stand?

Thinking this will lead to the a COSMIC AVENGERS title. As I have seen where ... crap, forgot who it was now ... but ... crap ... well anyway, another writer has been given another AVENGERS title. Was it ... Van Lente?

It may just end up being another mini or something like NOIR AVENGERS, but I am hoping for Cosmic.

Coming up in October!  Hard to believe we're closing in on the end of this one.


Thanos lives, but now Lord Mar-Vell moves in for the kill! The Undying Lord of the Cancerverse has underestimated the tenacity and fury of his adversary, but no longer! The Mad Titan is outnumbered and outgunned by the Cancerverse forces, and his unlikely allies—Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and the other brave misfits—find themselves making a last stand to save the galaxy’s #1 villain! It’s another unpredictable chapter of the saga that calls “First class’s accessible and epic” and hails as “one of the most enjoyable reading experiences of the year; it’s a summer blockbuster backed by humor and characters I actually care about.”
