    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jun 4, 2010

    I really want to give this issue a Must Read and I'll probably regret holding it back at Buy it, but after seeing what the potential of the art, I can't help but feel that the coloring in this issue was a large enough miss that it drags down the entire issue. Don't get me wrong though, this is still an amazing issue with some awesome action and some of the finest character moments DnA have ever written. You shouldn't miss it, but be warned about the art.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jun 7, 2010

    The main thing I get out of this issue is the urge to kick myself for not picking up the previous adventures from this team. Ah well, live and learn. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Jun 2, 2010

    The Thanos Imperative is a high-caliber piece of sequential storytelling. Abnett, Lanning, Sepulveda and Ramos have roped me in for issue #2. This is a great book starring some of my favorite Marvel characters. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 4, 2010

    The only imperative you need concern yourself with is finding a copy of this issue. An event comic done right and one you won't want to miss out on. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tyler Parker Jun 3, 2010

    If you've never dipped into the cosmic realm of Marvel, now is a perfect time. Abnett and Lanning are producing another fine outing for their cosmic heroes, and this time they have Thanos in tow. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Terry Verticchio Jun 10, 2010

    Well, another cosmic event has begun and I'm sure it's going to be wild time. If you haven't tried these books, the first page re-cap is very good at bringing you up to speed, so you can jump in with both feet without fear. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 5, 2010

    Still, even with that weakness, its a rip-roaring adventure tale, with some nice moments in it, as well as a lot of awesome character work the likes of which we dont usually get in a giant sprawling tale. The Thanos Imperative #1 does a lot of good things well, and even the flaws arent overwhelming enough to throw you out of the tale Thats a rarity in and of itself. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Jun 3, 2010

    As a long time fan of Marvel's cosmic heroes, and Thanos specifically, I get special satisfaction seeing all these character get their due in such an epic fashion. However, seeing as this story already has so many characters already, it'd preferred it focus had been kept on the cosmic characters and not been muddied by the (poorly named) Cancerverse's Revengers. And I really wish this was inked! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jun 2, 2010

    With a better artist, perhaps one that had handled these characters before, "The Thanos Imperative" #1 would have gotten off to a stronger start. The writing of Abnett and Lanning is bold and confident, but hampered by the muddled, cluttered art. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kate Trippe Jun 7, 2010

    If you want an introduction to the Guardians of the Galaxy or an action packed comic this will fit the bill, but be ready to wade through this issues busy art and slow starting plot. Read Full Review
