About this deal

The art is retro and incredible (Especially in the limited series Thanos quest) and the dialogs are super tacky. Then, when the Marvel Universe teams up to take on Thanos, we get a lot of waiting, while Adam Warlock plans and waits until just the right minute to set things into motion.

The main plot for the Infinity Gauntlet event is pretty bad ass, although it does lean on the side of being too much. I also liked reading more of Doctor Strange, a character that I have become increasingly interested in. The team of Silver surfer and Drax were able to find Adam warlock, who was dead as a doornail and is resurrected to stop Thanos.

Death and suicide are recurring themes in Starlin's work: Personifications of Death appeared in his Captain Marvel series and in a fill-in story for Ghost Rider; Warlock commits suicide by killing his future self; and suicide is a theme in a story he plotted and drew for The Rampaging Hulk magazine. While I feel like the main series works if you read it alone, I recommend reading all of SS and the Warlock issues leading up to it.

The main theme is that the story is a solid idea with tons of potential that ends up being rushed and leaves us with a terrible conclusion. Still as enjoyable and over the top as I remember and its always fun when the cosmic entities in the Marvel Universe show up. It seems like a minor thing, but it's frustrating to have to go back and see how much the characters know and what events have and have not happened for each issue. The omnibus then gives us 26 tie in issues of various comics that take place during the Infinity Gauntlet.

Skipping Quasar, Sleepwalker, Spiderman and the horrid Cloak and dagger issues would be a good move. Even with Doctor Doom, Galactus and the universe’s cosmic powers aiding them, can Marvel’s mightiest possibly prevail against Thanos the all-powerful? The Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus starts out reprinting the events previously assembled in Silver Surfer: Rebirth of Thanos, the limited Thanos Quest, and a few more Silver Surfer episodes to appropriately set the stage for the actual Infinity Gauntlet mini-series.

It doesn't make any sense to plop them all at the end so that we are reading things that have already taken place. The art is great in everything but Thanos Quest, where it gets too loud and trippy and the extras are neat. But even as the Mad Titan gathers the six Infinity Gems from across the galaxy, assembling them into the Infinity Gauntlet and gaining truly godlike powers, a host of heroes gather to oppose him - including the Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Doctor Strange and the Hulk! By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.The last few hundred pages contained some one shots where were good and then some aftermath issues which were good or mediocre. The biggest trouble with some of these tie-ins is the lack of elapsed time between issues of the Gauntlet, which puts a few of them in weird null time zones.
