There is just something about a book that has villains and heroes teaming up to fight an even bigger boss.
This series is the only comic books I ever collected because of its sheer awesomeness.

Not much of a plot in this 6 book series. It seems like the story was just an excuse to throw every character that Marvel had into one book and blow up lots of planets. It does highlight how crazy powerful the infinity gauntlet is,which is useful info for the upcoming movies. ( )

A re-read for me, but it has been a while and I wanted to see how the original Infinity Gauntlet story stands up against the MCU version. While there are obvious differences, I think both The Infinity Gauntlet and Avengers: Infinity War both stand up very well for their respective mediums. Also, given that The Infinity Gauntlet was published almost 30 years ago (how did that happen?!), I was pleasantly surprised that it still held up as well. It's also fun now to try to anticipate what is going to happen in the next movie based on the events that have been occurring in the MCU films. It's also interesting to see how the groundwork was laid for future events in the Marvel Comic Universe, even if they didn't know at the time that this story was going to have such long lasting affects.

This was a fun one. I loved seeing all of the characters from both Earth and the galaxy. It's a great intro to them if you aren't familiar. Action-packed, funny, smart and just plain fun. Will be interested to see how they handle the movie. ( )
