Review of the Week: Thanos: The Infinity Revelation
Jim Starlin on Thanos is always a treat. Slarlin's various Infinity stories have all been amazing, except for Crusade, which was just him bitching about how he dislikes religious. One of my biggest problems with Infinity Gauntlet was that if failed as a "Secret Wars" type crossover, since despite how many guest stars it had, it was the Thanos and Warlock show. This embraces that and focuses almost entirely on those two and their odd friendship/rivalry/hatred/bromance. I also loved how Starlin took stabs at some recent Thanos stories by other writers. As Thanos thinks about what is off about the fabric of reality and how it has effected him he comments that even he doesn't understand some of his recent behavior.
Really I have very few complaints about this hardcover, aside from the fact that it is a hardcover. Why not just a trade Marvel? Do you really need to screw me out of that extra $5 or so? Still, this was worth it, so if you're a Thanos fan, and who isn't these days, check this out.
