Meet the Author

Writer Jason Aaron's early collaboration with artist Cameron Stewart on DC/Vertigo's The Other Side was named one of The Washington Post's "Best Comics of 2007." His next project, Scalped, garnered industry-wide praise and led to a guest spot on Wolverine. After signing with Marvel Comics, Aaron completed another run on Wolverine, as well as stints on Black Panther and Ghost Rider, before moving on to launch Wolverine Weapon X and relaunch Wolverine. He brought Frank Castle's tortured tale to a devastating end in the pages of PunisherMAX and, in the wake of his status-quo-shattering miniseries X-Men: Schism, helped usher in a new era for Marvel's mutants in the pages of Wolverine and the X-Men.

Italian artist Simone Bianchi spent 11 years making a name for himself in Europe, including writing and drawing his own science-fiction epic Ego Sum. He won Europe's prestigious Yellow Kid Award as the year's best Italian artist and writer. America first got a taste of his work in DC Comics' Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight. Bianchi has brought his ferocious talent to blockbuster runs on Wolverine with writer Jeph Loeb and Astonishing X-Men with Warren Ellis, as well as the epic limited series Thor: For Asgard.

    This is a hauntingly beautiful origin story. The plot is great and the art work is amazing. This book is great for both long time fans as well as a great jumping on point for new readers. Taking you from his birth and setting the stage for his first appearance in the Marvel Universe in Iron Man 55 (1968). This story covers events mentioned but never expanded on in the "Thanos War" told in Captain Marvel 25-33 (1968) and Avengers 125 (1963), it is also available now in the Avengers vs Thanos collection. I hope this review was helpful so until the Mad Titan conquers the Universe MAKE MINE MARVEL!!!!

    I really enjoyed this origin story for Thanos. After seeing him in the end credits scene in "The Avengers" last year I wanted to learn more about him. I highly recommend this book who would like to learn more about Thanos before he appears in future Marvel movies.
