    DnA have raised the stakes of this event mighty high, rivaling the darkest moments of the two Annihilation events after a mere two issues. I can only imagine how worse things will get from here. Miguel Sepulveda, hardly the first artist I would have thought of for such a project, is quickly proving himself at home among the cosmos. Thanks to a cleaner, more defined set of pencils than we saw on Thunderbolts, Sepulveda is able to capture all the energy, devastation, and Kirby-esque craziness of the conflict at hand. As usual, DnA provide a clear example of how to do event storytelling properly. Read Full Review

    After the sort of meandering Realm of Kings crossover, its nice to see the Marvel Cosmic line come back to something much more focused. To the best of my knowledge, there hasnt been any announcement yet as to what the ongoing status of the two parent books will be after this event ends, but I hope we still have both Nova and the Guardians around in some form. This title really shows that they can carry their line very well. Read Full Review

    Marvel's cosmic books are probably the best books you're not reading by the company right now. They may be down to just this one mini-series, but it's well worth your while. I'm not a big fan of resurrecting dead characters just for a little shock value; with that in mind, so far "The Thanos Imperative" has convinced me that bringing Thanos back from the dead was a great storytelling decision. Clearly, they're doing something right, here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jul 19, 2010

    DnA hit another home run with Thanos Imperative #2. This issue had everything a comic book fan wants from big events. DnA continue to write the book on how big events should be written and this issue was filled with even more Marvel cosmic greatness than the first issue. If you have yet to read Thanos Imperative I highly implore you to go get these first two issues and the Ignition issue that kicked off this event because you do not want to miss this event. This is the true big event that is one big cosmic opera that no superhero comic book fan should miss out on. Highly recommend picking this issue up. Read Full Review

    I've always had a special spot for Marvel's cosmic side, so I'm enjoying the updating and recontextualization Abnett and Lanning are putting these characters through. I'm eager to see how they develop Thanos' new, ironically-heroic mission. However, I have to qualify much of my enjoyment of this issue because of my problems with the production choices. Instead of being able to drink many of the epic vistas, I was thinking about what they could've looked like with ink. Read Full Review
