    So an outstanding series, well worth checking out (and one I had no trouble following, even though I hadn't read the earlier mini-series). Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 13, 2010

    For patient fans that have followed Marvel's cosmic books from page one of the epic Annihilation miniseries way back in 2006 until now, this is the perfect ending to one of the most complex and satisfying epics that Marvel has ever produced. Although Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning jumped in after that initial miniseries, they piloted these characters through twist and turn through hundreds of pages spanning multiple titles and then BAM, they slap the readers in the fact with a shock ending that reaches all the way back to those opening pages of Annihilation. It's heartbreaking and powerful; even if I'm totally not okay with the fact that we readers are left with our jaws on the floor wondering what happened to two of our favorite heroes (including my personal favorite Marvel character). There are still issues with the art that have plagued this miniseries from day one and there is a lot that is glossed over to reach the shocks, but this is still an amazing comic that absolutely needs to b Read Full Review

    Somewhat disappointing is that this issue shows little evidence of what shape or form Marvel's cosmic storylines will take in 2011. For all we know, we could be looking at the end of a long, memorable saga that began humbly with Keith Giffen's Drax the Destroyer mini-series. And while The Thanos Imperative is a fitting end to that saga, how many readers won't still be craving more after this issue? Let's hope next month's epilogue paves the way for more cosmic goodness.

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Nov 10, 2010

    I can understand why all these cosmic books have been presented in attention-grabbing segments like this, but I wonder if a few of my issues might've been remedied by this just being an arc in an ongoing Guardians of the Galaxy title. There are enough character's Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 11, 2010

    "The Thanos Imperative" #6 is a textbook example of how to finish up an "event" mini-series. Abnett, Lanning, and Sepulveda deliver on all counts, and I left feeling like this was money well spent. If we're going to have to wrap up these books for a while, this was the way to do it. Good job, everyone. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Adam Chapman Nov 11, 2010

    There's not a whole lot of surprise in this issue, it's all about pulling things to a close, showcasing some really cool moments, and then having an ending which closes it all out. There's an upcoming one-shot which will function as an epilogue to the happenings here, and I really don't think it should be missed. The denouement will likely be very satisfying, and really needs to be read, in my opinion, to put it all in context and make this read even more enjoyable. Recommended! Read Full Review
