More Art From Thanos Rising #1 By Simone Bianchi


Marvel revealed some more artwork to the upcoming Thanos Rising comic book from Jason Aaron and artist Simone Bianchi.

Aaron let it be known that it's a very dark take and not a superhero story, and actually, the good guys don't win at the end.

Thanos Rising #1 hits in April.

Via CBR:

 At the time, I thought it would be cool to do a big cosmic story that was like that – something dark and gritty. This series is definitely that. It's some of the darkest, weirdest stuff I've written for Marvel. At times I look at the scripts and say, "Really? Are they letting me do this?" Because it's not a superhero story, there are no good guys in this. Certainly, the good guys don't win in the end. Spoiler alert! This is a story about a really bad dude, but it's also a really grand tragedy. It's sort of a Shakespearean, cosmic space opera where a lot of people get killed.

This is Thanos from day one. The story opens with the day of his birth, and things quickly start to go wrong right from the get-go. This breaks down his family history – where he came from, who he is and why he became who he is today. It fills in a lot of the gaps that we've had over the years.
