4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! May 22 2004
Format:Paperback
When the Infinity Gauntlet saga originally happened, I was in my comic collecting prime. I missed out on most the saga, sadly, because I was in an area where it was quite hard to get a good selection of comics. I bought a few tie-in issues from other series and sort of pieced together what was going on. The only thing I remember is knowing the Infinity Gauntlet was coming in advance, because an issue of Quasar (my favorite comic at the time. Please don't laugh at me about that.) showed Thanos with the Gauntlet, as he attempted (unsuccesfully) to destroy a super-powerful villian you've never heard of called Maelstrom. (If you care at all, the Quasar series was called Cosmos in Collision and ended with the universe nearly being destroyed. I really wish they'd reprint that one as well, but Quasar has never been, and likely never will be, popular enough to warrant something like that.)
This collection, though, is great. All of the original issues of Infinity Gauntlet in one. All the "intergalactic biggies" are there like Uatu (The Watcher), Galactus, Eternity, Death, Living Tribunal and a few more. (Noticeably absent are Infinity and Oblivion.)
I particularly enjoyed the scene where all the galactic biggies ganged up on Thanos and started beating him senseless. Or they tried to, anyway.
As far as I know, this is one of Marvel's earliest multi-comic title sagas. (Secret Wars came before it, though. And DC also had done Crisis on Infinite Earths in 1985.) Whereas Secret Wars was kind of disappointing, Infinity Gauntlet showed how it should be done. Not bloated and taking well over a year to play out (as CoIE did) and not having a misuse of a good idea (as Secret Wars did), Infinity Gauntlet was nearly as perfect as a concept like this can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read Dec 7 2013
By Wade A
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is becoming fast a must read, it's great! With the upcoming Avengers movies this book should be becoming a must read for everyone a fan of the comics and the movies even nowadays. The book is above and beyond an event, it pulls no punches either when throwing in a character. They toss everyone in this including the aspects of the universe itself, it's a great read that still echoes through today. This is one of those must reads of a genre.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a blast from the past to replace an item stolen long ago. I was thrilled to have the replacement in pristine condition and made no foolish mistake to not open it this time around.
Anyone looking to relive the 90s should consider this item as a good contender.

5.0 out of 5 stars What one does when becoming god. Dec 14 2000
Format:Paperback
Upon reading this incredible book again, I realized that this book is timeless. It has a style that does not require a reader to know anything about comics prior to reading this book. If you are looking to get a young person into comics this is an excellent way to start. Jim Starlin is in rare form and paints an excellent picture of angst and despair, and finally joy and astonishment. The book shows you the majestic quality of the Marvel heroes, and their epic struggle to safe guard their world against even the most impossible odds. This book displays the greatest show of courage and strength ever seen in comics. As the reader, you are given a chance to cheer, cry, and stand in total awe of all the visual magnificence dilivered in rare form by both George Perez (The Teen Titans, Avengers) and Ron Lim (X-Men 2099, Mutant X). If you want to see Marvel at its best, The Infinity Gaunlet is the best possible example.

3.0 out of 5 stars disapoints March 15 2004
Format:Paperback
This is supposed to be one of those classic Marvel storylines. You can tell they were trying to write it that way. And it does have some interesting moments (turning Wolverine to rubber) but as a whole it isn't just that great. You get a lot of minor characters who are all powerful doing major things. It's just not that great of a story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starlin's Madness July 26 2003
Format:Paperback
I grew up reading the author's Warlock series reprints in the eighties. Those were masterful and powerful stories. The series climaxed with a cosmic battle involving the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Spider-man and Warlock. If you're a teenage brat it doesn't get any better than that.
Until this story. Starlin writes this one so deftly and so utterly over the top that you walk away stunned. The premise? The dark demi-god Thanos controls the fate of the universe with his Infinity Gems. The players include X-Men, Avengers, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Warlock, Dr Strange. If you like to see things blow up, Starlin delivers. (The universe becomes an immense battlefield for the alien gods.) If you want to see someone at last handle the psychology of a super-villain in a convincing manner, Starlin delivers. (Why is Thanos so bad? Jim answers loud and clear.) And if you want a plot that's both formulaic but new, this one delivers. (Like Star Wars.)
I also enjoyed the Infinity War series, so I hope Marvel reprints that one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Cosmic Saga May 10 2003
Format:Paperback
Marvel has the best cosmic stories in the industry and this is the best Marvel has to offer. Not only do you have a rather awesome tale of a megalomanic gaining aboslute control over everything, but Jim Starlin's characterizations of dozens of core heroes are dead on.
I would have prefered Starlin to have illustrated this himself, but Perez and Lim do admirable jobs in bringing this tome to life.
