So where does THE INFINITY ENTITY #1 find him? Hanging with the original Avengers? Then things start getting weird. But what else would you expect from the cosmic team of Jim Starlin and Alan Davis? Guest starring the Guardians of the Galaxy. Jim Starlin (A/CA) Alan Davis
Smurfs Take> Legends! That’s what I think of when you mention the team behind this book. One created the most powerful cosmic villain of all time and the other one of the most unique styles on the planet. Now add the cliffhanger that the Thanos title left on, I can’t wait to see what Starlin has up his story telling sleeve as we find out the rest of the story for one of my favorite characters.
