    INFINITY GAUNTLET TPB (New Printing) (Jun 2006)

    (excerpt)

    Starlin does a fairly good job of balancing an overwhelming cast. On one hand, power players like the Silver Surfer, Hulk and Thor get more prominence than Spider-man or Cyclops, but event non-participants in the conflict like Moon Knight and Nick Fury get entire pages devoted to their observation of the cosmic catastrophe. The primary cast of characters, including Thanos, Mephisto, Warlock and Starfox, are all significant due to their role in the power struggle, though since they’re also Starlin’s favorite characters, they receive the bulk of his attention. In some ways this can be a little off-putting, since Warlock only returns from the dead in this series to immediately become the most wise and knowing being in the universe. Readers of Warlock’s ‘70s adventures will be thrilled, but new readers might wonder why this guy’s so important if he’s been neglected for twenty years.

    The pacing is a slow and deliberate build to a monumental clash of the titans, quite literally, but it’s arguably stronger in the first half of the series than the second. The stakes build as Thanos finds his ploys to win Death’s affections becoming more and more desperate. The extent of his wrath is explored in depth in the earlier issues while the later is given almost entire over to conflict. What’s interesting to note is that George Perez only illustrates up until the middle of the fourth issue, at which point Ron Lim takes over, and this changeover in art also follows the decline in the story. Lim’s work isn’t poor, but it’s weaker in contrast to Perez’s lush details.

    INFINITY GAUNTLET TPB (1992) (Aug 1992)
    “The bad guy won,” was all I remembered hearing on that day in the comic shop. My ten-year-old mind thought it impossible. Surely, the two patrons were joking, right? There was no way the villain could ever win, no matter what he tried. Sure enough, they continued rambling on about how Thanos, the Mad Titan, had defeated everyone in the Marvel Universe. The mere mentioning of this sent a shiver up my spine.

    It was not until many years later that I grasped the enormity of what they were saying. The series they were talking about, The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin and George Perez, did not pass through my hands until almost a decade later. At first, I thought it was just a book someone wanted me to read until I recognized the cover: Thanos, clutching his fist adorned with the Infinity Gems as the universe surrounded him. That is when it all came back.

    What I read was not quite what I expected. Sure, there was a scene were the bad guy won, but at its heart, the story was actually a bittersweet love story. Thanos was a man who loved Death. Not the concept, mind you, but the female embodiment of the Grim Reaper. Trying to get his lady love to return the feelings, he set about on the perilous journey of uniting the Infinity Gems, mystic artifacts that can bend reality. He succeeded and collecting them, but this still was not good enough for Death. Determined to just see her smile, he did the one thing he was sure to make her happy.

    INFINITY GAUNTLET TPB (2000) (Feb 2000)
    INFINITY GAUNTLET TPB (2002) (2002)
    So, in an effort to give myself some just plain fun reading, I was pleased to find, collected in graphic novel form, The Infinity Gauntlet from Marvel.

    I had read the six-issue series back when it was originally published from July to December of 1991 and I'd really enjoyed it. Throughout the years as my piles of collected comics shrank, The Infinity Gauntlet books always found their way into the "save" box and back into my attic.

    Here's the quick and dirty plot synopsis: Power-hungry Thanos comes to possess the Infinity Gauntlet (a big glove with 6 jewels on it) that gives him God-like powers over everything and everyone. In an effort to impress Mistress Death he wipes out have of the universe's population prompting our Marvel heroes to unite behind Adam Warlock to save the day.

    There is, of course, plenty of fighting, lots of dialogue like "it matters not" and "prepare thyselves for battle most fierce" and by the end it's pretty goofy, but it's also a fun read.

  • CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS
  • 80. CRISIS ON INFINITIE EARTHS (DC Softcover)
    The most ambitious comic project ever could fill another volume with its body count. Marv Wolfman and George Perez's Crisis aimed to clean up DC's cluttered 50-year-old continuity by merging the handful of its parallel Earths into one, but not before a being called the Anti-Monitor destroys an infinite amount of worlds in the process. This cover, penciled by Pérez and painted by Alex Ross, is easily one of the most beautiful ever produced and worth the purchase alone. "It was actually the first series I ever followed," says JSA writer Geoff Johns who was 12 at the time. "For me, it really shaped the DCU. I doubt I would've read many DC comics before Crisis."

  • AVENGERS: ULTRON UNLIMITED
  • 79. AVENGERS: ULTRON UNLIMITED (Marvel softcover)
    The perfect killing machine has just received an upgrade, courtesy of Kurt Busiek and George Pérez. Ultron, one of the Avengers most powerful foes, returns with an appetite for destruction and holds the fate of mankind in his adamantium grip. After Ultron slaughters the small European country of Slorenia in under three hours, Earth's Mightiest Heroes must rally like never before in order to put a stop to this reawakened threat. But do they have what it takes to send this maniacal killing machine to the scrap heap once and for all ?

  • INFINITY GAUNTLET
  • 60. INFINITY GAUNTLET (Marvel softcover)
    Even when he's a god, Thanos still can't get lucky with the ladies. Possessing the six Infinity Gems, Thanos gain omnipotence and kills half the universe's population with the snap of his finger in an attempt to earn the affection of the mistress Death. A plethora of Marvel heroes mount a defensive to thwart the mad Titan, but how can you beat a god? Only writer Jim Starlin knew the answer. "It had a hundred characters and mindless destruction, but for all the bombast, it was really about a guy trying to impress a girl," say Sojourn writer Ron Marz. "Thanos' failure is ultimately one of unrequited love. Who can't relate to that?"

  • THE NEW TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT
  • 15. THE NEW TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT (DC softcover)
    The Titans have a traitor in their midst. This spy knows their secrets and hands them over to the deadliest mercenary alive: Deathstroke the Terminator, who systematically takes out the team. Only Nightwing escapes… but even he needs help in order to rescue them before it's too late. In this storyarc, Marv Wolfman and George Pérez pull off a lot in six issues: Dick Grayson becomes Nightwing for the first time, Kid Flash quits, Jericho (the son of Deathstroke) joins up… and a tragic blow hits the team. "Judas Contract is a perfect template for powerful, dramatic storytelling," lauds Steve Kurth, penciler for G.I.Joe. "This story was pure magic."

  • SUPERMAN: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW?
  • 9. SUPERMAN: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW? (DC softcover)
    It was time for the Man of Tomorrow to become the Man of Yesterday. As DC prepared to start Superman from scratch in 1986, the publisher watned to send off the "old" Man of Steel that had been around since 1938. writer Alan Moore had Supes face off with Lex Luthor and Braniac in the Fortress of Solitude a final time, leaving every reader with a tear in their eye. "A bittersweet goodbye to Superman continuity in order to pave way for a revamped Man of Steel, Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow worked as both a nostalgic nod to a simpler past, and alook forward to all that comics could be," says Sojourn scribe Ron Marz. "This 'last' Superman story is also one of the best."


    GREATEST STORIES NOT IN TPBS

    JOHN BYRNE'S NEW SUPERMAN Ain't it amazing that with everything DC collects, it hasn't collected Byrne's headline-making 1986 revamp of the regular series? Especially the three-part story where Supes must help save Earth once inhabited by the "pre-Byrne" Superman where the Man of Steel must take the role of judge, jury and executioner.

    GEORGE PEREZ'S NEW WONDER WOMAN Ditto for Pérez's 1987 revamp of everyone's favorite Amazon princess. With stunning art and stronger ties to Greek mythology, Diana enters man's world for the first time, learning lessons the hard way.
