    One thought on “The Thanos Imperative”

    1. A rift called the Fault caused by all the recent space shenanigans is a doorway to another universe in which Death was killed. You’d think a universe with no death would be a good thing, but this was brought about by letting a bunch of Cthulhu like ancient creatures take charge. Now this Cancerverse wants to spread out and take over new territory so a cast of cosmic heavy weights including the likes of Galactus and Silver Surfer fight to push back the forces pouring through the Fault including [...]

    2. Pretty fun story, even though I'm not fluent in Marvel's Cosmic Teams. I sort of knew most of the major characters, though.Star-Lord, Silver Surfer, Nova, Medusa, etcBut I barely recognized majority of the individuals in the story.I only mention that because I don't think you need a lot of background to understand/like the story.Now, if you generally hate the space operaish stuff, then The Thanos Imperative probably isn't going to be your cuppa. I kind of straddle the line when it comes to the c [...]

    3. A good fun story, but there is one thing which annoys me. How did Mar-vell dispose of the Magus so effortlessly!??

    4. I really, really enjoyed this one! It's a rollicking romp in the space opera vein with an unhealthy dose of Lovecraftian horror thrown into the mix and that ending? Whoa Tears before bedtime, folks tears before bedtime.I didn't even mind Thanos being in it and I normally hate that annoying, death-obsessed, wrinkly-chinned Darkseid rip-off!

    5. Beyond the fault there is a universe where death has died, it's avatar of death sacrificed to ensure death's destruction. The people who live beyond the fault are running out of room in their universe and wish to claim another universe by sacrificing it's avatar of death. The universe's avatar is Thanos.So despite Drax killing Thanos, he's returned and is crucial to their universe's survival. Thanos isn't happy to be alive.So the great space traveling planets, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and ot [...]

    6. This one comes with several disclaimers.Firstly, that I'm a massive Dan Abnett fan and take a day off to read his new books when they're published. Secondly, that he's a colleague of mine, and something of a pal. And thirdly, that I'm not a huge fan of comics (love Slaine, though, and Sandman), or superheroes in general. The backlog of required lore (see Batmap RIP, for example) can make these things a little daunting and unsatisfying.That said, I was curious about The Thanos Imperative, as it g [...]

    7. The Thanos Imperative miniseries, featuring Marvel’s cosmic superheroes comes to full circle the story of the ultimate nihilist. It began with Annihilation which took him off the board by having his arch nemesis Drax fulfill his destiny by killing him. That story made cosmic characters such as Nova, the Guardians of Galaxy and Adam Warlock relevant again as it spawned more stories like its sequel, Annihilation: Conquest, War of Kings, and now this. This story brought back Thanos who gets to fa [...]

    8. Good read! So The Thanos Imperative, I have not read any books with Thanos before, and with him being prepped for a big baddie in the marvel movies i read this to learn more about him! So this story is basically a mini-event in the Marvel Universe involving all the cosmic marvel heroes such as Guardians Of The Galaxy, Nova, Silver Surfer etc The story is Thanos has been brought back to life and now hes the key to stopping a crisis in a parallel earth. (Pulling A DC, aren't we?) The bad guys are [...]

    9. Holy crap that was good. Then again, I've always been an absolute sucker for the really big and really powerful and bugshit crazy ideas. This story sequence was amazing.

    10. Este cómic de aventura épica espacial me gustó mucho más de lo que esperaba. En general estas sagas que abarcan tantos personajes suelen no tener nada interesante más allá de ver a x personaje interactuando con personaje y, amenazas cósmicas aburridas y ominosas, y cosas así. Si bien la trama principal lidia con una historia bastante típica, hay muchas ideas originales, y un muy buen ritmo narrativo, que hacen una lectura entretenida. Me hizo dar ganas de leer más de estos autores, cap [...]

    11. Wow, what a difference being caught up on Cosmic Marvel stuff makes. When I first read this back in 2011, I didn't understand a lick of what was going on. I remember liking the action but not having the slightest idea who a single character was, nor what their motivations or personalities were supposed to be. Having now read all of Guardians of the Galaxy leading up to this event, and being generally familiar with the Annihilation Wars, War of Kings and Realm of Kings (mostly because they are th [...]

    12. I picked this up because it read that it was good prep reading for the new Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy. It seems like the Guardians of the Galaxy are like the Avengers, but more concerned with universe protection than Earth protection. That's somewhat interesting, though I'm not usually interested in straight si-fi. It does possibly give more potential for storylines, but instead of new menances on Earth it's just new menace on planet Sichiueh or whatever.My biggest problem with this is [...]

    13. Frankly, this is absurdbut terrific at the same time.No navel gazing superheroic angst, just colossal great space battles, a ridiculous horde of tentacle horrors, a bunch of superheroes with no terribly defined powers apart from, well, power and it all adds up to top notch, wide-screen pulp action.I haven't read any of the Thanos predecessor stories, but I don't think it made any difference - there's enough character carried along here to get by with - thus proving (if it needed proving) that we [...]

    14. So. I opened this one up because it's with Guardians of the Galaxy, original Sin, so I hear. I opened it up and didn't know where I was or what had happened previously. Gotta stop doing that. I don't know what came first, but I at least got the gist of the story and it engrossed me. Didn't know who half of the characters were, but hey, I read it. Most of it made some sense. That was that. Obv it's different art than the Bendis ones that I started reading. Rocket didn't quite look raccoon like, b [...]

    15. Fast paced with big, cosmic ideas, but fails to really focus on any of them. Jumps around too much and doesn't bother to develop even one character, but still tells a decently fun story.

    16. Grandiose, epic cosmic adventure, with cool script and excellent artwork. I can see why Dan Abnett's run on the cosmic storylines was such a fan favourite, going to have to read them all now.

    17. 2.5 starsConsidering the magnitude of this story, and the number of characters involved, it's pretty well done. But even with my knowledge of the Marvel Universe, there's way too much in here that's never explained, and Dan Abnett is not one of the more interesting writers. There are a handful of characters who appear throughout the book without even being named (Beta Ray Bill, some guy with a huge widow's peak that's probably Shi'ar or something) or are not given any background or character dev [...]

    18. Perhaps the single most shocking part of The Thanos Imperative is that it proves to be genuinely good. Something which by rights should be impossible given its content. The story effectively commits every single sin dragging down Marvel’s modern comics – Sudden disbandments of teams, sudden shock deaths of characters, reliance upon famed storylines to give the plot meaning and being a world shattering event comic mere weeks after the last one. It has everything set up to make it fail, yet so [...]

    19. I keep thinking I've finally finished all the DNA cosmic Marvel comics and I keep finding out I'm wrong. One of these days I'm gonna have to get with someone who already knows--or scour the internet--and get these things all in order and re-read them because their work are the best traditional science-fiction/space-opera comics I've ever read. All the big players of the time are here--the DNA Nova, Richard Rider, the DNA Guardians of the Galaxy, the Kree empire under Inhuman rule, the Church of [...]

    20. The universe needs saving! Bring on Thanos?!?!?!?!?! Marvel cosmic swerves into its next big event and its pretty epic. Abnett & Lanning continue to deliver fantastic sweeping stories that are huge in scope but at the same time very personal. The conflict here is fun to watch and has consequences. The script is moving and the art by Sepulveda and Walker is dynamic. I'm amazed Marvel didn't turn this into a bigger storyline like previous ones. Overall, a very entertaining read.

    21. The first half part of the book is exhausting to read. The narrative drags, is forgetful and dull. After the event happens, it picks up a pace and have a real sweet ending.

    22. Finally caught up to the end of the Cancerverse story line. Not sure what ending I wanted, but the one in the book was OK.

    23. Great outer space adventure .With intriguing storyline and top shelf artwork. If you like Marvel's space heroes you won't be let down by this story. A must read.

    24. osrascunhos/2017/11/09/o-Não sei se pela alternância com outras histórias mais calmas, achei este volume excessivo. Excessivo na acção, não tendo momentos de paragem e transmitindo uma constante urgência, excessivo na densidade cromática e de quadrados, fazendo com que ocorra demasiado em pouco espaço, e apresentando diferentes características visuais na mesma página. Há, também, a destacar que, visualmente, este volume tem, também, planos brutais nalgumas páginas que dão espaço [...]

    25. Estas tres estrellas deberían ser cuatro. En "El imperativo Thanos" concluyen los arcos que se han ido desarrollando en la rama cósmica de la Marvel estos últimos años. Y esto sucede de manera notable. Hay batallas espaciales, duelos entre personajes emblemáticos y multitudinaria presencia tanto de superhéroes galácticos como de esas entidades superiores que solo aparecen en los grandes momentos y que el seguidor de este universo tebeístico tanto agradece. La historia creada por Dan Abne [...]
