    All in all, a fun cosmic throwdown, and an essential bit of continuity if you're interested in Thane following the events of Infinity. Read Full Review

    If you're a mega fan of Thanos and his mythology, you may want to read this story the way it was originally intended, digitally. Even then the story seemed to lack clear direction. On the printed page, and for casual fans of Thanos, this is something that is very easily “missable”. For my own self, it's a story I could have skipped and I won't be back for more.

    "Thanos: A God Up There Listening" #1 doesn't do much to make Thane a convincingly interesting character. He mostly seems to be the key to unlocking yet another Thanos story more than being the star of his own adventure. Williams makes some really inexplicable leaps for the character, and reflecting on why Thane makes a few of these choices just raises more questions and reduces the reading equity. With Thanos set to take center stage in the next installment, I'm curious if the story will forget about Thane or eventually return to give the character a little more development. "Thanos: A God Up There Listening" #1 is a nice deviation in the form of an Infinite Comic, but it could be improved. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Edward Kaye Oct 9, 2014

    This is the latest of Marvel's digital "Infinite" comics to see print, and like many of its predecessors, the story does little to impress and just feels like filler designed to keep readers clicking through the flashy panel transitions. Read Full Review
