Jim Starlin And Ron Lim Reunite For THANOS ANNUAL #1
Fans rejoiced when it was announced that Thanos creator Jim Starlin would be tackling three stories with the Mad Titan this year for Marvel. One is the previously announced original graphic novel Thanos: The Infinity Revelation and the other two were to remain a mystery for a while. Today one of those mysteries has been revealed thanks to Marvel‘s May solicits.
Starlin will be reuniting with artist Ron Lim for a Thanos-centric annual. Starlin and Lim worked on the second part of The Infinity Gauntlet as well as a nice run on a Silver Surfer ongoing. With the cosmic side of Marvel gaining more importance in both the comic and movie world, it’s no surprise they’re trying to get some of their big guns back together for special comics. You can read the full solicit, check out the cover, and read some addition information Bleeding Cool had below. Will you be picking this one up?
