This week's Thanos Legacy #1 has a story from Donny Cates and Brian Level that looks at Thanos's life and motivations leading up to the moment in Infinity Wars Prime where he met his end at the hands of his daughter, Gamora, now calling herself Requiem and currently wielding a number of Infinity
Gems Stones. It also manages to tie this in with his recent appearance in Thor in Hell, and also his appearance in his own series with the Cosmic Ghost Rider and another of his deaths, in the future at the hands of his past self.
Thanos gets around a lot and dies a lot, it seems. But this issue, at least gives Thanos's actions some consequence, explanation, and, I guess, legacy…
But in the back, it also gives Donny Cates the chance to show off his next project. Reunited with Geoff Shaw. And their new big project together, as teased earlier in the year by Bleeding Cool.
A new Guardians of the Galaxy. With, seemingly, every Guardian of the Galaxy in it, in their many iterations, over time.
And asking #WhoAreTheGuardians? Well… you have a fair few to choose from. Including a certain Galactus, who recently appeared written by Donny Cates in Cosmic Ghost Rider…
Thanos Legacy #1 is published this week. As for that matter is Asgardians of the Galaxy #1. More on both of those to come.
