First issues of event comics have to accomplish a lot. They have to introduce a conflict, introduce a villain, give heroes memorable moments that bring the reader back to see more, set up side stories that can be fleshed out in other titles, have a big battle scene, and the list goes on.
Infinity #1 by writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Jim Cheung with a team of inkers, colorist Justin Ponsor and letterer Chris Eliopoulos, does some of those things, but in a sort of sidestep rather than a straight-ahead dash. And some of the items on the checklist, it willfully denies the reader. In the end, I wound up liking the approach, but getting there took a lot of trust not every reader may have.
Following Patton Oswalt's fully improvised filibuster/rant on Parks and Recreation -- in which he spent nearly eight minutes sharing his pitch for a Star Wars/Marvel film crossover in the next installment in the Star Wars film franchise -- the folks at Entertainment Weekly have created a mash-up poster of all of his suggestions.

You only glimpsed him mid-credits during The Avengers, but that doesn't mean that a lot of work went into the creation of a movie version of Jim Starlin's infamous death-worshipping god, Thanos. How much work, you might ask? Well, here's some concept art to answer that question - an
Memo to the actor who played Thanos in the Avengers movie: Don't count on any job security, because Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige feels like there's some recasting wiggle room for when the character reappears to cause more trouble in future movies - even if he's not saying exactly when (and where) that will be.Talking to MTV News, Fiege refused to elaborate on when the Purple Titan will show up next, but teased that the studio doe
Over the past year, Joe Keatinge has found success as the writer of Glory and Hell Yeah for Image, but last week, Marvel announced that they'd tapped him to tell the origin of one of their toughest villains in Thanos: Son of Titan.
