It was slow starting and would have rated 2 stars if it remained that way but a very strong conclusion pulled it up to 3 or 3 and a half stars. ( )

So this doesn't tell you how the infinity gems where collected so can be a little confusing to start with. Also it almost comes apart around the 3/4's mark. It not only feels a wee bit sexist but its a rather jarring change of direction. Luckily though the ending is pretty good. ( )

The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin, Ron Lim, and George Pérez is pretty understandably epic in scale. I don't know how the upcoming Avengers movie can get to this story without more setup than we've seen so far. But, who knows? I've heard rumours that they might not start with this story right away, which means I started in the wrong place. Oops.

It really seems like a huge story arc designed to launch Adam Warlock into an eternal hall of fame at the expense of the entire Marvel universe. Jim Starlin's Adam Warlock. Jim Starlin the writer of this story. Nothing suspicious here at all, nope.



The cosmic elements are the best. There's panels with Doctor Strange, Adam Warlock, Celestials and Eternals that knock it out of the park with delicious cosmic visuals. There's some mind bending bit here to love.



There's also a cameo of a Trump property getting natural disastered that gave me mean chuckle.



But really, it's Doctor Strange who gets some of the best visuals.



The framing story is that Thanos is desperate for Lady Death's love. It's kind of pathetic, and perhaps a funny commentary on desperate but unrequited nerd ideas of "love". The framing story seems stuck on repeat for most of the series, until the story catches up to where Thanos is at; then the story gets stuck on repeat as the writing plays the same sequence of heroes trying to defeat Thanos while Silver Surfer or someone doubts Adam Warlock over and over for a while.

But there's some great "who's it" with the Infinity Gauntlet including a couple steals and a fumble to liven things up.

As stuck as it may seem repeating in places within this collected volume, it isn't anything I've read before elsewhere. It's new, but repeats within itself a bit, is what I'm saying. But, it's good, and, where it does internally new stuff, it does it really well. There's tons of visuals and moments that struck me, and which I hope to see on the big screen eventually as a bonus.

In the end everyone returns to where they were, except Thanos and Adam Warlock, who both, sort of, escape the cycle of statis, ironically by getting stuck in a different, or maybe the same, from a certain point of view, cycle of stasis.

I'm certainly curious about the rest of the Infinity Gem Saga, but that's a lot of material. I hope it stays fresh across the whole sequence of 6 collections. It's a bit daunting and I feel like I got a good complete story in this collection alone, so I'm not super hype about the rest, to be honest. In that sense, this volume is a nice complete thing in itself without feeling left tricked into needing to read anything else.

If you enjoyed the Avengers movie then this book is an important comic to read. For everything that happened in the movies to lead to the ideas that came from this story shows how great this story is. If there is one flaw to this story its the change in art midway through the book. The shift in art throws off the balance of the book slightly. Still the importance of this book so many years later is a testament to how good the story is. ( )

Starts off rather intriguing, as Thanos kills off half the universe to please Death and we see various entities struggle to come to terms with this, but then becomes a rather dull slugfest of (useless) attacks and explosions against his omnipotence. The finale rights the ship a lot, though, as the story again gets rooted in character and (mostly) ceases its parade of pointless and unsatisfactory guest star heroes.

There's also a disappointing lack of major heroes dying in the apocalypse -- the Fantastic Four do, but they go off-screen and aren't even explicitly lamented in dialogue. The closest we get is seeing Hawkeye vanish, but when Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Scarlet Witch, Wolverine, Cyclops, Spider-Man, Hulk, Doctor Strange and Silver Surfer all remain (even though nearly none of them play a notable role or purpose in the story), the resonance with the reader is rather hamstrung. This problem also coincides largely with the weaker middle issues.

It was still well worth reading, mainly for the -- honestly great -- concluding pages, where we once again return to it being Thanos' personal story, as begun in the pages of "Thanos Quest" where he gathered the Infinity Gems in the first place. But considering the tonnage of famous comic arcs out there, you could, unfortunately, probably do better than prioritising this one among the first couple of dozen. ( )
