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.
The idea of reading a Thanos origin story didn't appeal to me. Then I read it! I shouldn't have doubted Jason Aaron. He, along with artist Simone Bianchi, craft a creepy and disturbing take on what makes the mad Titan tick, as he wonders the same thing. At first, seeing a young Thanos in school bothered me because it seemed too mundane but it escalated quickly. Thanos's madness is eerily logical and his goal to seek out answers and ultimately love, was very fun to read. Overall, a very good series. Aaron she be commended.
