In a lot of ways this is a love letter to long time Thanos and Warlock fans. It's a brilliant story but very "meta" and as a consequence of that will many fans scratching their heads as to what the whole point was. Unless you're intimately familiar with the history of Thanos, Warlock, AND Starlin's well documented disputes with Marvel a lot of the meaning of this story will be lost in the ether. I've read a lot of reviews here where people just didn't "get it" so I'd like to try and explain it.

The whole story is very "meta" so keep that in mind when reading

- When we first see Thanos in that catatonic state , i believe that was Starlin's way of saying the "real" Thanos (His version) had been dormant and comatose metaphorically since his creator (Starlin) had last been with him. In essence he had not been himself and was in a sense inactive or not there. I believe is was just symbolic of everything that had happened with the character in recent years and Starlin's documented problem with Marvel. Starlin has retconned other writers work on Thanos before and revealed them as clones but thats another story. With Thanos surging in popularity in recent years , Starlin doesn't have the luxury of establishing control again. This story feels a lot like a goodbye as well as Starlin leaving himself a backdoor to undo any damage done to Warlock and Thanos at a later date if need be. I'll get to that later...

- The Living Tribunal refers to a power greater than himself. To my knowledge this has never happened before as he has always been at the top of the cosmic tree. I believe the power he is referring to is Marvel itself (editorial and writers) in the real world outside comics.

Without much ado, let me just say I am a huge Jim Starlin fan. Especially his Cosmic Marvel stuff. I'm old enough that I have originals of his Captain Marvel and Warlock epics.

First off: Prior reading necessity. If you have not already, you'd probably want the Thanos vs. The Avengers trade, The Infinity saga (Gauntlet, War, and maybe the very lackluster Crusade) Warlock and the Infinity Watch, and another maybe, the mediocre Marvel Universe The End.

Suprisingly, (or not) having read the recent Marvel Infinity saga isn't necessary. Starlin, I have noticed, tends to ignore the use of Thanos when handled by other creators. Actually this is for the best here. Infinity as well as the so-called Thanos Rising origin story gave us some pretty idiotic lapses in continuity and logic. No mention is made here of any of that.

Without giving away too much -- although there aren't really any "spoilers" per se -- I will give the good and the bad of this book.

The Good: Starlin is firing on all cylinders with the artwork. While totally out of sync with today's grittier artists like Lenil Yu or Simone Bianchi, he does not make any attempt to "modernize". In fact, he allows himself to indulge in some outright psychedelic type art that would have fit in perfectly in the 70s.

Thanos is written almost perfectly as, not so much bad guy, (at least not in the beginning) but kind of where he was in the Infinity War series, as more of an independent adventurer and seeker of knowledge.

Adam Warlock is back for the ride. At this point these two are kind of like a cosmic Laurel and Hardy, or Oscar and Felix.

The Not So Good: What the heck is going on?

Putting the story aside for a moment, my only complaint with the Kindle version of this, is the narrow device list, compared to other Kindle ebooks. It'll work on Kindle hardware, it'll work on android and Apple tablets. It won't be visible on most versions of Windows Kindle. And, although Amazon Support said you can read this in Kindle for Windows 8, it was unreadable on my Win 8 PC.

This is a highly reflective Thanos, the philosopher and scientist and worrier, which is what some of us like, about Starlin's version. It shares a context with other stories, past and future, but is reasonably self-contained for new fans.

A mystery, dealing largely with the nature of reality, and a quest to solve it. Only partly resolved here, but it appears that a sequel will deal with that. We hope.

Some decent action scenes, albeit one-sided, and amazing visuals. You could spend some time, without reading anything, and just pondering the meaning of some of the scenes near the end. Weird realities, along with an even stranger ongoing romance, drawn by someone who loves his flagship character ( and the other one ), and throws his heart & soul, into writing and portraying him.

Thanos's official status, is as a villain. But as you can glean from Infinity Revelation, it's not quite as clear-cut as that.

I'm biased. Completely. If you're not a Starlin/Thanos fan already, then you will want to read some of the other reviews & synopses on Amazon, as well as elsewhere.

All I can say is, can't wait for the next story in the series, which should be later in 2014.
