This April sees Jason Aaron and Simone Bianchi take on the Mad Titan's origin with Thanos Rising #1.
Marvel revealed Marko Djurdjevic's variant cover (below) with the normal cover (right) and solicit as well.
Djurdjevic had a hand in launching Marvel Cosmic back in the Annihilation era as he designed the DnA Guardians of the Galaxy costumes that the new upcoming movie seems to be based on.
Artist Steve McNiven in a recent interview basically insulted Djurdjevic's look and re-designed them from the head down, apparently nixing Star-Lord's popular helmet in the process.
