Jim Starlin and Thanos go together like Rocket Raccoon and mass destruction, and the writer/artist is returning to the cosmic universe he almost single-handedly created from the 1970s onwards. Now he is returning to that world with an original graphic novel, Thanos: The Infinity Revelation, in April.
There is an imbalance in the universe. Since his latest return from oblivion, Thanos himself feels… incomplete. Now the so-called Mad Titan plans to put both wrongs right. The revelatory waters of the Infinity Well lead Thanos on a new quest, with a once sworn enemy, Adam Warlock, at his side. A crusade that will bring confrontation with the Silver Surfer and the galaxy’s mightiest heroes – the Annihilators. This April, Thanos will embark on an odyssey that will change everything in THANOS: THE INFINITY REVELATION.
Cosmic maestro Jim Starlin (The Infinity Gauntlet, Captain Marvel) returns to his signature character in a tale of death and rebirth that will transform the Marvel Universe once more!
“Thanos and Adam Warlock team up to deal with a universe imperiling event. Big changes are coming to everything and the Titan appears to be at the heart of this astral metamorphosis. The story concludes with a major change in Thanos’ status within the Marvel Universe, turning him into a greater threat than ever before,” says Starlin.
It’s is fair to say that the Marvel Cosmic Universe was largely birthed by Starlin, revamping Warlock and Captain Marvel, and launching the seminal events The Infinity Gauntlet and the first Marvel Graphic Novel, The Death of Captain Marvel. With the appearance of Thanos at the end of The Avengers film, and the Infinity Gauntlet tease for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems like a perfect time to dip back into the Starlin cosmic universe.
Check out some of the preview pages from the novel below, which seems to include Starlin creations Thanos and Drax the Destroyer.
