Official Press Release
Marvel's most powerful and enigmatic villain takes center stage this fall in
a new galaxy-spanning ongoing series written and illustrated by his creator,
Jim Starlin, who unleashed the would-be galaxy-killer onto the Marvel
Universe exactly 30 years ago in 1973.
He's held ultimate power in his hands, only to see it all slip away time and
again. His attempts at conquest and destruction have all been thwarted. So
what inner demons drive the mad Titan known as THANOS towards his goals ...
and what hidden desires pull at his heart and mind now?
The new series promises never-before-revealed insight into the heart and
mind of the villain introduced to a whole new generation of readers with
this year's popular Marvel Universe: The End limited series.
THANOS #1, a 32-page debut issue with a cover price of $2.99, goes on sale
in comic book shops on 10/1 and retailers are reminded its Final Order
Cut-off (FOC) date is Thursday, 9/11. Readers, please ask your local comic
book retailer to reserve you a copy before its order cut-off date.
