5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic Majesty 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I remember reading these comics when they came out and being blown away by the scale and majesty of the narrative. However, I missed out of the Thanos Quest mini series first time around, which is why I bought this collected edition. It did not disappoint! Thanos takes each Infinity gem with guile and brilliance, becoming god of all reality. For all his efforts, however, Mistress Death remains singularly unimpressed...

Classic Starlin with incredible art from Ron Lim.

5.0 out of 5 stars "We play a game of galactic proportions. So each move must be played with consummate skill and care." 23 Jun 2012
By para - Published on Amazon.com
This trade collects Silver Surfer issues #34-38, The Thanos Quest Books 1&2, and a six page story from Logan's Run issue #6.

Rebirth of Thanos collects the events leading up to Marvel's classic universe spanning crossover, The Infinity Gauntlet. The Mistress Death has observed what she believes to be a cosmic imbalance and has her most dangerous servant resurrected to correct it. They believe only one obstacle can impede his success: the Silver Surfer.

The Silver Surfer issues provide interesting but not entirely necessary background explaining Thanos's goals and motivations as well as the Surfer's first attempts to stem the Titan's mad plans. It's a bit uneven blend of drama and humor (looking at you, Impossible Man) but Starlin was laying groundwork here for something bigger, and the insight provided and glimpses of characters such as Thanos's family (Nebula, Mentor and Eros) and Drax the Destroyer sets the stage nicely for the saga of the Infinity Gems.

The Thanos Quest follows Thanos as he attempts to collect all six gems from beings known as the Elders. It adds great depth to the events that follow and is great in it's own right. From my review of the individual issues: "Jim Starlin and Ron Lim were a fantastic team, and well known for their work in the cosmic corners of the Marvel U. Thanos is a particularly interesting villain: incredibly powerful, but brilliant, ambitious and devious beyond measure to boot. Starlin makes his search for ultimate power compelling, and Lim's art, while a different style than that of today, is excellent none-the-less."

The Final Flower is really a throw away story and since it focuses on a version of Drax the Destroyer who is somewhat different from the one in the rest of the trade, is relatively pointless as well.

Overall Rebirth is a great collection of cosmic adventures that build the stakes nicely for The Infinity Gauntlet. The rest of the material isn't quite as strong as The Thanos Quest (one of my all time favorite stories) but is still solid, and as Quest is long out of print in any other format this trade is easily worth picking up.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great characterization of Silver Surfer and Thanos. . . 18 Feb 2013
By Jeff F - Published on Amazon.com
This trade collects issues #34-38 of the Silver Surfer and the Thanos Quest miniseries and could be considered an essential prologue to the Infinity Gauntlet storyline. The Silver Surfer issues depict the title character witnessing the resurrection of Marvel's answer to Darkseid, Thanos. The Surfer gathers all the information he can about Thanos from various allies among the Marvel characters before his "final" confrontation with Thanos. Ron Lim handles the art for these Silver Surfer issues, as he did for the various Infinity crossovers. Where the collection really excels is the Thanos miniseries, in which Thanos gathers the Infinity gems in order to appease Lady Death. The art here is even better than in the Surfer issues, and the characterzation of Thanos is extremely well-written, enough so that he might just become your favorite villain. See the ingenious schemes through which he manages to steal each of the Infinity Gems from their respective owners and his relationship with Death in these stories if you don't believe me. A brief Thanos and Drax the Destroyer story nicely rounds out the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Prequel To Infinity Gauntlet 22 May 2013
By Jose Maravillas - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The story is good and makes you want to keep reading. The best part is Thanos Quest which is at the end of the book. Here Thanos was able to outsmart these cosmic heros to become one powerful dude. Get Infinity Gauntlet with this one because the story just keeps getting better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silver Surfer + Thanos = Cosmic Conflict of the most Exhilarating/ Exciting Kind! 19 Mar 2014
By Book & Music thief, from HI - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Now this would make for a Great Marvel Film = Bigger & better than Star Wars, perhaps even more exciting than Avengers?!

Originally from 1990 (after I had stopped collecting comics) - but thanks to Marvel Book compilations, the whole incredibly 'cosmic' saga by Jim Starlin and Ron Lim is right here, right now!

Typical of Starlin and in-Line with his previous acclaimed works, this is surprisingly complex and even thought-provoking (for a mere comic!) But of course the main draw = are the spectacular drawings, of cosmic scenery and copious action!

See & read for yourself, soon (with some Beethoven sonically soaring in the background = for enhanced Epic effect!)

note: if I had one slight critique it was that this volume seemd a little brief = perhaps they should have combined these stories with the subsequent 'Infinity Gauntlet' = it might also be a good idea to read the "Avengers vs. Thanos" compilation first, since those constitute the original Thanos stories (and that is a very Large and comprehensive volume!)

There isn't much in life better than a good slice of nostalgia! Great Lim art! Solid Starlin script! Fans of Infinity Gauntlet must read this! The Thanos Quest story alone is worth the price.
