The Return of Ninjak – Interesting that Valiant, in re-launching their universe from the beginning, is bringing back a late era Valiant character in Ninjak, instead of one of their pillars like Magnus or Solar. Then again those are Gold Key characters and I’m sure Valiant wants to push their own creations. Check out the art for Ninjak’s return below, followed by a brief slideshow of Joe Quesada’s incredible art for the launch of the first Ninjak title.
-The Return of Thanos – This is a little stranger. The press release which announces what looks like two new series and an appearance in Avengers Assemble (also a new book?) actually, upon closer reading, looks like it’s Marvel re-releasing the awesome Thanos Quest two-part miniseries which led to The Infinity Gauntlet. Stranger, it then looks like Marvel’s retitled The Infinity Gauntlet as Thanos: The Final Threat with a description that sounds very Gauntlet-esque:
From creator Jim Starlin, Thanos: The Final Threat #1 follows the Mad Eternal as he gathers the cosmic Infinity Gems in a bid for interplanetary power! Can even the combined might of the Avengers, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, and others stand up to Thanos might?
I reached out to my one tenuous contact at Marvel for more information but so far I’ve heard nothing back. Updates when I get them/ suss them out.
After the jump, new promo art for Ninjak & Thanos’ Quest.
