Infinity Gauntlet by Jim StarlinThis was a loaner from my neighbor and not something that I would have normally picked out for myself. Cause its...old. And the art looks...old. It even smelled...old.
As I read over the blurb on the back, I was like, Hey, Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet? Isnt that the theme for that cartoon that my kids like so much? Superhero Squad!
...and then my son snatched it. Honestly, I didnt fight him for it either. I mean, it looked so...old.
But a few days later, when I heard him telling his brother about how Dr. Strange and the Silver Surfer helped Adam Warlock save the universe, I decided that I should probably make sure this was suitable reading material for children. Um, you know, just to be a responsible parent...and all that.
Considering the fact that there are actually people who ask me for advice because Im old and therefore wise, I should know better than to judge a book by its ancient cover. But Im shallow. And I was shocked when I realized that this was good. Surprisingly good. It opened with Dr. Strange, so how could it not be?
Dont answer that.
So, yes. This is one of those stories that stand the test of time. Its not required reading, but it is fun.
Do you have to get past the overblown grandiose dialogue that was par for the course when this was written? Yes.
Personally, when I read something like this, the little narrator in my head sounds like William Shatner. Ive found it makes the reading experience a bit more fun.
Is the art slick eye-candy? No. It still looks...old. Its the kind of old that grows on you, though. Kinda like that crazy uncle who wont stop chain-smoking and talking about his Days in Nam...even though everyone in the family knows he actually spent that time in Canada. Just roll with it.
Anyway, check this out when you get in the mood for wacky/fun space opera set in the Marvel universe!
