Official Press Release

After the explosive ignition, Marvel is proud to present your first look at The Thanos Imperative #2, written by the master architects of the Cosmic Universe Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning and art by the talented Miguel Sepulveda. A rival universe where life is the ultimate curse--and reality is determined by twisted, monolithic gods--is gouging into our own! The heavy hitters of the Marvel Cosmic Universe have been brought together to ensure the safety of the cosmos, but is it enough? Marvel is also pleased to announce that The Thanos Imperative: Ignition #1 and The Thanos Imperative #1 have sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level) and will return with The Thanos Imperative: Ignition #1 Second Printing Variant and The Thanos Imperative #1 Second Printing Variant!

Fans and critics cannot get enough of this sprawling space-odyssey.

“If you've never dipped into the cosmic realm of Marvel, now is a perfect time. Abnett and Lanning are producing another fine outing for their cosmic heroes, and this time they have Thanos in tow.” – Tyler Parker, IGN.com

“It’s large, loud, filled with humor, and defies expectations. In the tradition of Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova before it, The Thanos Imperative is a fun ride that delivers.” – Nick Bartocci, BrokenFrontier.com

'The Thanos Imperative’ looks to be one of the most enjoyable reading experiences of the year; it’s a summer blockbuster backed by humor and characters I actually care about.” – Troy Brownfield, Newsarama.com

“Like much of their work for the cosmic line, the duo delivers here with a surprising, action-packed issue that sets the stakes high and presents a seemingly unstoppable foe.” – Chad Nevitt, ComicBookResources.com

“Writers Abnett and Lanning, architects of all things galactic, do an outstanding job of bringing new readers up to speed and setting up what should be one hell of a ride.” –Ben Johnson, Mania.com

A war has ignited which will combine the galaxy’s most dedicated warriors with a collection of heroes that you never saw coming! Editor Bill Rosemann adds, “Even if you haven’t been part of the fun so far, The Thanos Imperative: Ignition #1 and The Thanos Imperative #1 deliver everything you need to know to hop onboard this last crazy ride. The Silver Surfer, Nova, Gladiator, Quasar, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Galactus, the Inhumans, Lord Mar-Vell & the Revengers…DnA and Miguel Sepulveda are pulling out all the stops! Join us…or risk the wrath of The Mad Titan!” Will these battle-hardened heroes be able to overcome to cosmic forces of evil? Find out the answers in The Thanos Imperative!
