In my continuing quest to learn about Thanos, his backstory, and his previous involvement in the Marvel universe, I read Thanos Rising.

This graphic novel detailed the story of Thanos from his birth on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, and traced his development into the being he eventually became. This was a very dark and violent tale, and I didn’t get much pleasure out of reading it at all. On the other hand though, I had wanted to find out more about Thanos’ early life and other backstory elements.

I gave Thanos Rising three stars – the three stars resulted from my averaging a two star rating for reading enjoyment and a four star rating for the information it provided.
