The Thanos Imperative #2

The Thanos Imperative #2 - Comic of the DayBlue blazes? Really?

To use the expression "blue blazes" once n a comic book is pushing it. It recalls memories of watching campy television shows like the Adam West Batman series (which was awesome for what it was), but not in a fun sign of the times way. A non-child comic book written post 80's should never carry such an old phrase...let alone use it 3 times. In was honestly distracting. If it is some old catch phrase of Nova's, I do not care. I would rather see a bleeped out word like $%*^. Sorry. I didn't mean to get too vulgar there.

Though the comic of the day was difficult to read at times, The Thanos Imperative #2 provided a few moments of wonder and excitement. Headlining my wonder wall for this issue is the collection of the space abstracts such as Galactus. The level of threat in The Thanos Imperative #2 is so great that the literal big boys show up to keep our universe's door shut. The only thing that out does the awe of Galactus and the Galactus-like beings holding off their unknown enemies is the last page of The Thanos Imperative #2.

Once readers get by "blue blazes" (sorry for even posting "it" repeatedly) I think will enjoy the large scale of this visually engrossing comic book.
