Thanos: A God Up There Listening #3 Review

Through insanity, all things are possible! Or says the Mad Titan Thanos…

The official description from Marvel:

• At the close of INFINITY, Thane discovered he was the son of Thanos and that his touch was death.

• Now, accompanied by the constantly whispered advice of the Ebony Maw, he wants to discover his father’s history, and his own future.

Thanos A God Up There Listening 3 CoverThane’s crazy trip continues, as we reach the second to last issue of the print version of this story. He experiences all the emotions his weary mind can muster, in this “Fight Club”-esque romp of a mini-space saga…

Rob Williams has crafted a unique story with an interesting look at the infinity-born new character, Thane, while giving just enough Thanos nihilism to keep long time Marvel Cosmic fans interested.

The artistic team of Iban Coello, Neil Edwards, and Paco Diaz once again provide the perfect landscape for this mad tale to unfold. The art is fantastic and well worth the price of admission. Oh, and I have to say, these Dustin Nguyen covers have just been fantastic. Though the story may have been reused from the Infinite Comic, these covers add that something new that makes it worthwhile to pick up the print copies.

A favorite scene from this part of the story comes near the end, where EGO moves from a physical attack on Thanos, to an attack directed at Thanos’ mind. His sanity. I guess EGO never heard, you can break what has already been broken. I am not sure there is something you can show Thanos that would disturb him…save Death being courted by another – I wonder why he didn’t go with that?
