This is the ground-breaking storyline in the Thanos series. By showing a repentant Thanos seeking redemption, this comic adds a depth to the character that makes Thanos more compelling. We almost want Thanos to succeed in repairing his misdeeds and when he arrives on Rigel-3 there is a tension that makes us understand the character’s motivations.

This product is well reviewed and has 45 ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.5 out of 5. There seems to be a general satisfaction with the product.

One customer review said: “Thanos has been one of the best villains that Marvel has had. So how about as a hero? After the Amazing Infinity Gauntlet story, as cool as Thanos is, something seemed to be a little off for me regarding his motivations. It makes sense, after finally giving up on ultimate power due to the events of IG, he would be a changed person. Not for the better, in my opinion. However, these stories here were excellent and probably the best Thanos stories since the Infinity Gauntlet. The first 6 by Starlin are masterful with a tale that includes Galactus himself. Then Starlin departed and Keith Giffen (another favorite of mine) takes over. Re-reading it here I see him laying the ground work for the Annihilation Wave which lead to the Guardians of the Galaxy take that people are now more familiar with.”

The reviews were overall very positive with only two negative reviews. One problem cited by one of the negative reviews was the dialogue: “If you like the traditional, comic book-y way of having every character explain the plot via long dialogue or thought bubbles, this is for you. If you like the less wordy, modern method of comic book storytelling, you’ll get bored with this quickly.”

Overall, this comic was very enjoyable.
