Review: Thanos Legacy #1

Rising star Donny Cates returns to the Mad Titan to bring the story bridging the gap between his best-selling “Thanos Wins” and the world-shattering Infinity Wars! How did Thanos’ journey back from the future lead to the events of Infinity Wars Prime? Now it can be told!

Thanos Legacy #1 features two stories each dealing with the Mad Titan. The first, written by Donny Cates is the main driver here focused on the events of Cates’ recent run on Thanos as well as the events of Infinity Wars Prime. Thanos wants to prevent the future self he saw and Gamora seems to have answered that call but where do things go from here? This series seems to be filling in that piece of the puzzle with what comes next now that Thanos’ head is no longer attached to his body.

The first issue does a decent job of catching up the reader as to the events leading up to things and then takes it steps further with setting up the focus of the series. It’s a good comic that serves as a chance for new readers to catch up. While there are some gaps, the issue is a jumping on point for the Marvel cosmic epic currently being weaved. At least, it’s a jumping on point for this one aspect of it.

The art by Brian Level and colorist Jordan Boyd is good. There’s some solid shots of Thanos that gets me to rethink the events of Infinity Wars Prime revealing small details I missed when reading it. Along with Cates’ story, the two combine to peal back and reveal more about Thanos and those final moments. What went from a murder has evolved into a being accepting their fate and embracing it. A close up of a smirk adds to that layer.

There’s also a back-up story by Gerry Duggan with art by Cory Smith and color from Ruth Redmond. This tale of Gamora and Thanos focuses on a brutal lesson taught by father to daughter. Without words, the impetuous is on the art to convey everything and every detail matters. From the body language to a facial expression, Smith and Redmond deliver emotion throughout. Every moment we can tell what Gamora is thinking and going through.

The issue is a solid start and it’s the back-up story from Duggan, Smith, and Redmond that really stand out. Overall, it feels like a chapter in Marvel’s cosmic grand plan and one that if you’re into that side of the Marvel Universe you’ll want to check out. The fact it’s also a good starting point makes it stand out as a comic to check out this week.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Asgardians of the Galaxy #1 (Marvel) – A tie-in to the current Infinity Wars event, this comic brings together a rag-tag group of Asgardian warriors. The reason is ok but it’s the personalities and a reveal at the end that’s the real driver here.

Berlin The Complete Edition (Drawn & Quarterly) – Collecting Jason Lutes masterwork looking at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens. It’s a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.

Border Town #1 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – Kicking off the new direction of Vertigo that’s a return to the edgy social conscious comics of old. The first issue is absolutely fantastic and a must get. A horror comic with monsters you don’t normally see.

Bully Wars #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from Skottie Young. That alone has us sold. The series focuses on high school bullies with art by Aaron Conley.

Captain America #3 (Marvel) – A fantastic relaunch of the series focused on the role of Captain America in modern society.

Cover #1 (Jinxworld/DC Comics) – The fact this is a new Jinxworld title has us intrigued to check it out.

Dark Ark #10 (AfterShock Comics) – Cullen Bunn is a master at horror and this series mashes that genre up with the Bible. So good.

Death of the Inhumans #3 (Marvel) – We admit we were skeptical when we first head about this miniseries but so far each issue has been solid with no issues murdering off long time characters and creating a threat that feels very real.

Dr. Stone Vol. 1 (VIZ Media) – We’ve read it, we love it. Basically, everyone in the world gets turned into stone and a few wake up thousands of years in the future. Where do you go from there?

The Dreaming #1 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – The Sandman Universe takes off with this debut issue. We had mixed feelings about the teaser comic but we’re excited to check out more.

Thanos Legacy #1 (Marvel) – A piece of the master cosmic plan Marvel has going on.

Transformers: Lost Light #23/Transformers: Optimus Prime #23/Transformers: Unicron #4 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers universe is finally coming to an end point and these three series are taking us there. What’s on the other side, we have no idea.

United States vs Murder Inc #1 (Jinxworld/DC Comics) – We remember the first volume when it came out and it was a nice spin to the mob story.

The Walking Dead #183 (Skybound/Image Comics) – The introduction of the new community has given the series a shot in the arm and opened up a lot of posibilities. Where is it goign? We have no idea and can’t wait.

WWE NXT Takover: Blueprint #1 (BOOM! Studios) – If you’re a fan of the WWE, this one is a must get.
