Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanos and the Surfer the best of enemies I'm not one for 90's comics. I pretty much stay away from them with prejudice. 90's hell no. Think I'll go read some more Silver age spidey, or some of the 80's Marvel greats. I don't know what possessed me to pick this rather expensive 90's book up, but for whatever reason I did, and it was great. I think comic readers tend to judge event comics by the event itself. Which if it is all you are reading then that is usually a valid review whether good or bad. Usually we end up disappointed reading the event only. I learned very quickly that if you do not read the build up issues you are missing out on a big part of the story and point. Why read the climax without getting all the build up. Sure events sell singles, but we usually end up wanting more of what was promised to be a spectacular once in a while type story. That being said, some still suck no matter how much back story you have read. """Cough""" Fear Itself. INFINITY GAUNTLET Omnibus was an amazing book, that told the right amount of back story beofre getting to the main event. I actually have a hard time separating the build up from the main event. The only thing separating the pre Gauntlet and the event is the inclusion of the big name heroes. We start with a great run of the Silver Surfer ( who I had never really read before ) and his ongoing battle with Thanos, and the mystery of the Infinity Gems. These issues were a lot of fun and kept me reading without any real anxiousness to get the main event. After that we get the absolutely wonderful Thanos Quest which shows how Thanos gets the gems. This was a real treat to read, really a great story in itself. This prelude takes up about 1/3 of the vol until we get the main event, and man it does not disappoint. 6 great issues of storytelling that will probably always be listed as one of the great Maxi-series comics events we have seen. Great art and great story telling. Now after that is where is gets a little harder to judge. We have about 500 pages left in this giant book. I had no idea what to expect , but I knew this could really hinder the overall enjoyment of the book. Honestly it did a little. There are some more great Silver Surfer issues, some great DR. Strange issues, a couple good Hulk issues, a not bad Spidey, and some real skip it kinda stuff. Cloak and Dagger, Quasar, Sleepwalker ( who is this guy ). Its all mostly relevant to the Infinity series, but some in a real reaching way. The Hulk issues ( which I really liked ) were more about what happened before and after he was involved in the Gauntlet. The Silver Surfer, DR. Strange issues were perfectly good extra chapters in the Gauntlet, but the rest is kinda Mehh with it's relevance to the title story. Overall no matter the little gripes I have about the last 1/4 of the Omnibus, this book is fantastic. The Silver Surfer, and Event issues really shine and are worth the price alone. The production and color are wonderful. If you ever wondered about Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet this is the book to buy. Thanos is a great character who I knew nothing about. He believes in his cause to the end, and that makes him one of the best comic villains ever written.
