Thanos: The Infinity Finale

Author: Jim Starlin

Release Date: April 2016

Jim Starlin doing cosmic Marvel is as close to comic comfort food as it gets for me. Similarly to Claremont’s X-Men or The Savage Dragon, there is a consistent voice in the comics and the characters all behave how they do in my fondest memories of reading comics.

The conclusion to this newest Thanos trilogy is suitably epic in scope and continues the stories of Adam Warlock and Pip the Troll, while featuring other Starlin regulars the Silver Surfer, Mephisto, Eternity, and more. Here Thanos partners with the last survivors of Earth to fight off the Annihilation wave (those evil bugs best made threatening by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning).

The very nature of intellectual property demands that Marvel will never allow real consequences (permanent deaths) to these characters, but in the style of the Infinity Gauntlet, widespread destruction is possible along with a device to reverse everything and not feel cheated simultaneously.

5-star
