    In this bridging story between Thanos: The Infinity Relativity and Thanos: The Infinity Finale, Adam Warlock discovers that the universe has no future and what's more that he is the cause of it all. Jim Starlin and Alan Davis deliver a truly cosmic story rich in continuity and Marvel history. Travel carefully for this is the deep end of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Mar 10, 2016

    The issue leaves readers with an eyebrow-raising confrontation on the final page. It's not an edge-of-your-seat-clutching-the-armrests cliffhanger, but it is an opportunity for this galaxy-spanning adventure to get even more cosmic. Starlin is spinning new yarns in his corner of the Marvel Universe. The light connection to continuity and the surrounding evergreen graphic novels make this (projected) weekly story not a necessity, but a nicety. This comic is an entertaining read that is certain to please fans of Adam Warlock, Jim Starlin, Alan Davis, or any combination of those three. Davis is what drew me in, but the story has convinced me to come back for more, despite me never being overly invested in Warlock beyond his role in the Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning Guardians of the Galaxy series.

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Mar 14, 2016

    "The Infinity Entity" #1 reads like a kind of interlude to Starlin's overall story, but it's got that classic Starlin cosmos-spanning feel and it's given an even more epic texture by Davis and Farmer. It's not great, but it's plenty of fun. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Mar 10, 2016

    It's never been easy to follow Starlin's grandiose Thanos saga, but this is close to a breaking point for me. If next issue doesn't start clearing up the narrative I'm dangerously close to checking out and just waiting for The Infinity Finale. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 13, 2016

    MADDENINGLY vague and chock-full of strange cameos, but featuring strong art by David & Farmer... It's kind of a wash. Read Full Review

    This book has a lot going for it, but it also has a bit higher than average accessibility hurdle, which hurts this book as a new number one issue. I love the writing, and the way the artwork flows with the time the story is set in. the wibbly-wobbly time changes don’t really do any harm to the story, but just drive home the cosmic and “other-worldly” nature of Adam Warlock. The character that is revealed at the end- the In-Betweener, he is really cool. But he isn’t someone I recognize, or remember from the Infinity Revelation; is he new, or did I just miss his introduction? This book makes Infinity Relativity (and by extension the rest of the Thanos Marvel Now OGNs) pretty required readings, with hurts the accessibility a bit, but not enough for me to totally disregard this book. I have read all those books, so I know what led up to this point, but it will take a lot more to really draw people into a new title that requires a $25 standalone graphic novel as a prologue to this story.
