    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Feb 28, 2018

    This issue not only delivers on just being an origin it also sets up Cosmic Ghost Riders upsoming solo series and does way more world building than I ever expected. So much goes on in this issue that under a lesser writer it could come off rushed and chaotic yet Cates handled this issue with such grace and you can tell him,Shaw,and Fabela are having a blast pouring their love into this story.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 1, 2018

    Thanos continues to be a fantastic series and the praise it is getting is well-deserved. Cates' writing is top-notch and the combination of Geoff Shaw and Antonio Fabela delivers some awe-inspiring art. Thanos #16 delivers bombastic action, laugh-out-loud comedy and some good introspective character study. This is the best book Marvel Comics is putting out right now and is one of the best comic books out right now period. The creative team is firing on all cylinders and it does not seem like they are letting up anytime soon! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Chaston Mar 9, 2018

    Thanos Wins is perhaps the most unique story going right now. In retrospect, you know you're not reading the book of a protagonist. And yet you can't help but cheer for Thanos in certain ways. Donny Cates is bringing his "A" game in order to give you a Thanos, unlike anything you've ever read about the Mad Titan. This is amazing storytelling and art from top to bottom. Thanos definitely is winning here! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 2, 2018

    Thanos #16 is a fantastic read. Action, dry gallows humor, abstract sci-fi concepts, and utter ruthlessness come together for an enthralling narrative bolstered by great artwork from Shaw and Fabela. This one is definitely recommended. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Feb 28, 2018

    THANOS #16 is a fun romp that tells the origin of the alternate reality Ghost Rider version of Frank Castle. It's filled with humorous dialogue and gags. Writer Donny Cates made this one of the most memorable issues I've read in a while. Artists Geoff Shaw and Antonio Fabela helped make it a hilarious book. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alex Curtis Mar 5, 2018

    I want to like Donny Cate's apocalyptic take on the Mad Titan, but the current story is too bogged down in details to be wholly satisfying. Read Full Review
