Marvel Publishing A Thanos Ongoing Series From Jeff Lemire And Mike Deodato

ComicBook has the Marvel PR on the new Thanos series by Jeff Lemire and Mike Deodato.

Another bad guy getting a book ahead of Doom in Infamous Iron Man? Lemire says…

I will say that the cosmic cube is NOT involved. And there will be a very solid supporting cast in this series. A regular set of underused characters that will become very important to the series and to Thanos himself. Starfox, Nebula, and Thane will play key roles. And there are a few surprises as well.

I've dived pretty deep into Thanos' publishing history to draw inspiration for the series. Of course, it all starts with Jim Starlin, but I've also drawn from Keith Giffen's run on Thanos as well as Jason Aaron's Thanos Rising and the work Jonathan Hickman did in Infinity and elsewhere. I also took a good long look at Kieron Gillen's Darth Vader series as a template for what could be done with an ongoing villain series.
