    [Read as single issues]No one can write Thanos quite like Jim Starlin. But Jeff Lemire is out to try, as he assembles an Ocean's Eleven (okay, more like five, but whatever) of cosmic characters with a connection to Thanos in a last ditch effort to stop him once and for all.Enter Thane, Nebula, Starfox, the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, and Tryco Slatterus. This is a slow burn, made even slower by Lemire's labourous dialogue boxes meant to invoke the cosmic comics of old while never really getting as hi [Read as single issues]No one can write Thanos quite like Jim Starlin. But Jeff Lemire is out to try, as he assembles an Ocean's Eleven (okay, more like five, but whatever) of cosmic characters with a connection to Thanos in a last ditch effort to stop him once and for all.Enter Thane, Nebula, Starfox, the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, and Tryco Slatterus. This is a slow burn, made even slower by Lemire's labourous dialogue boxes meant to invoke the cosmic comics of old while never really getting as high concept and crazy as they did. Lemire's playing it a little safe, but the twist ending in the final issue is worth the wait and gives the series more longevity than it would first appear to have.Industry giant Mike Deodato pencils this story, and while his current issues still plague him (too many shading lines, everything looks a little rubbery), he gets to draw the hell out of some awesome cosmic landscapes, and his Thanos is super-imposing.Jeff Lemire usually struggles with team books. Maybe hiding it as a team book under the title of just one character has unlocked his next level of talent. Thanos is a welcome callback to comics of yore while being up to date and relevant in today's Marvel Cosmic landscape.

    Not Lemires best. I was hoping for more. But it was still good. Although I'd take starlin and lims thanos over this one every time.
