Thanos: Death Notes – Revisit Thanos’ Devastating Past In Marvel’s New One-Shot Issue
Marvel Comics has announced a new one-shot issue that will revisit the Mad Titans’ devastating past in Thanos: Death Notes. The oversized one-shot will pack stories of Thanos’ past as it works towards his next conquest in the Marvel Universe. The one-shot ties directly to Donny Cates and Nic Klein‘s Thor series that recently saw Thanos appear in a terrifying future with Thor vowing to use all his strength and might to prevent this future from becoming reality.
One of the greatest villains in Marvel history requires some of the greatest creators and the publisher is bringing the talents of Michael Straczynski, Torunn Grønbekk, Kyle Starks, Christopher Cantwell, Andrea Di Vito, Travel Foreman, and one of the character’s most definitive artists, Ron Lim.
Marvel‘s description of Thanos: Death Notes reads:
“Thanos is missing, presumed dead after the chilling events of Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribić’s ETERNALS. But Thor has seen a vision of his return. And it is enough to make even a God fear. To prepare himself, to prepare the universe, Thor desperately searches for answers in Thanos’ past…and finds a glimpse of the Marvel Universe’s dark future.”
Marvel Editor Wil Moss shares that Thor’s vision during the Black Winter in Thor #6 has had him working towards preventing that future and in the one-shot, he will look to Thanos’ past for clues, saying:
“Ever since the Black Winter gave Thor a glimpse of how he was going to die way back in THOR #6, and Thor saw that it was going to be at the hands of a Thanos wielding not only an Infinity Stones-encrusted Mjolnir but also seemingly a new black Infinity Stone (not to mention with an army of undead super heroes and villains at his side), Thor has been working to prevent this horrific fate.”
In this THANOS one-shot, his quest brings him to look to Thanos’ past for clues. But in doing so, will Thor learn something of use, or merely realize that Thanos truly is inevitable? Big things are set up here, brought to you by an all-star cast of creators — don’t miss it!”
Thanos: Death Notes #1 will arrive at your local comic shop and digitally on November 30th, 2022. Check out the cover by Andrea Sorrentino below:
