Read full description of the books:
This was a loaner from my neighbor and not something that I would have normally picked out for myself. 'Cause it's...old. And the art looks...old. It even smelled...old.
As I read over the blurb on the back, I was like, Hey, Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet? Isn't that the theme for that cartoon that my kids like so much? Superhero Squad!
...and then my son snatched it. Honestly, I didn't fight him for it either. I mean, it looked so...old.
But a few days later, when I heard him telling his brother about how Dr. Strange and the Silver Surfer helped Adam Warlock save the universe, I decided that I should probably make sure this was suitable reading material for children. Um, you know, just to be a responsible parent...and all that.
Considering the fact that there are actually people who ask me for advice because I'm old and therefore wise, I should know better than to judge a book by its ancient cover. But I'm shallow. And I was shocked when I realized that this was good. Surprisingly good. It opened with Dr. Strange, so how could it not be?
Don't answer that.
So, yes. This is one of those stories that stands the test of time. It's not required reading, but it is fun.
Do you have to get past the overblown grandiose dialogue that was par for the course when this was written? Yes.
Personally, when I read something like this, the little narrator in my head sounds like William Shatner. I've found it makes the reading experience a bit more fun.
Is the art slick eye-candy? No. It still looks...old. It's the kind of old that grows on you, though. Kinda like that crazy uncle who won't stop chain-smoking and talking about his Days in 'Nam...even though everyone in the family knows he actually spent that time in Canada. Just roll with it.
Anyway, check this out when you get in the mood for wacky/fun space opera set in the Marvel universe!

Read information about the authorJames P. "Jim" Starlin is an American comic book writer and artist. With a career dating back to the early 1970s, he is best known for "cosmic" tales and space opera; for revamping the Marvel Comics characters Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock; and for creating or co-creating the Marvel characters Thanos and Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu. 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.
In the mid-1970s, Starlin contributed a cache of stories to the independently published science-fiction anthology Star Reach. Here he developed his ideas of God, death, and infinity, free of the restrictions of mainstream comics publishers' self-censorship arm, the Comics Code Authority. Starlin also drew "The Secret of Skull River", inked by frequent collaborator Al Milgrom, for Savage Tales #5 (July 1974).
When Marvel Comics wished to use the name of Captain Marvel for a new, different character, Starlin was given the rare opportunity to produce a one-shot story in which to kill off a main character. The Death of Captain Marvel became the first graphic novel published by the company itself. (
In the late 1980s, Starlin began working more for DC Comics, writing a number of Batman stories, including the four-issue miniseries Batman: The Cult (Aug.-Nov. 1988), and the storyline "Batman: A Death in the Family", in Batman #426-429 (Dec. 1988 – Jan. 1989), in which Jason Todd, the second of Batman's Robin sidekicks, was killed. The death was decided by fans, as DC Comics set up a hotline for readers to vote on as to whether or not Jason Todd should survive a potentially fatal situation. For DC he created Hardcore Station.
