    So let's talk opinions. After last issues' slow motion story, this issue doubles up on the excitement. Battles, battles, and more battles. Amazing artwork. Marvel's magic powers are beautifully drawn and are so nice to look at. I found the whole Cosmic Six vs. Mar-Vell's cronies battle pretty hilarious. It was like watching giants fight roaches. The Thanos regeneration scene was also very cool to look at. I cannot stop praising the art. Storywise, we are progressing quite well. Battles are being won and lost. Characters are falling and dying. Humor is still present in every issue. We are getting closer to the final battle. (I predict the return of Adam Warlock by issue 6). Next issue's set up for the end should be great. I can't wait to read it. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony RakittkeShare this:FacebookStumbleUponDigg Sep 13, 2010

    The action in this issue is unparalleled and furious, even if the plot was rather sparse. Sepulveda has a wonderful understanding of these characters and his gritty style is perfectly suited to the large canvas Abnett and Lanning like to work on. I loved the contrast of Nova and his strikeforce leading an incursion into the Cancerverse while Lord Mar-Vell and his Revengers stalked our universe in pursuit of the Avatar of Death. With every issue, this cat and mouse game is becoming more intense and bloodthirsty, the stakes are being continuously raised as each side fights relentlessly to gain the winning advantage, and after this issue I'm at a loss to see where the creative team could possibly go from here with the story.Perhaps even more interesting than this is the subplot involving the conflict between Thanos and Drax, and this month's revelation that Drax is an Avatar of Life who, in the Cancerverse, is utterly compelled to destroy Thanos more than usual. Here again, DnA toy with u Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 13, 2010

    This issue really delivers the action with Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning putting together a very exciting issue that sees nearly all of the major players in this storyline embroiled in some battle or another. While it's great to see the fights, it is still a little hard to grab onto the very high concept behind the war between the regular universe and the Cancerverse (simple conquest yes, but the battle between Life and Death is a lot). Still, with action this sweet and extremely solid art behind it, it's hard to go wrong with this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 9, 2010

    If I have any complaints this time it's that some of the sense of grand scale is lost with the story shifting away from the battle at the Fault. But aside from that, everything remains in top shape with this series. The lack of tie-ins and extraneous material have kept The Thanos Imperative lean, mean, and intensely focused on the endgame. These last two issues should be very good. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Sep 13, 2010

    Thanos Imperative #4 delivers on everything it promises and then some. Things just keeping getting bigger and more epic with each issue as DnA continue their cosmic opera. Even with how big things have gotten in these first four issues things only look to get bigger now that we have two issues left. And with everything that happened in this issue the next two issues cant get here soon enough. I cant recommend picking up Thanos Imperative enough. This is truly an epic event that you do not want to be missing out on. Read Full Review
