Comic Book Character of the Week!
I will be picking one major comic book superhero, team or theme and post my favorite cover art or pin up art of said character to share. I hope you all enjoy this new spotlight feature on Don’t Hate The Geek!
Comic Book Character of the Week: Thanos
Today’s artist: George Perez
There is not many a true comic fan that does not know the name George Perez. He might not have created Thanos but he sure draws him like he should have. As great as Jim Starlin’s artwork is, George Perez has a talent like no other in the comic book business. George has the ability to take HUGE artistic undertakings and makes an extremely hard job look simple. Buy drawing some of the biggest, baddest most character filled pages, George Perez does it still with such incredible detail. That’s why Perez was the perfect choice to draw what would become one of Marvel’s grandest epics of all time, Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet Saga. Check out today’s artist, the great George Perez, showcasing some of the best Thanos artwork ever. Enjoy!
In Infinity Gauntlet Thanos has the Infinity Gems and proceeds to wipe out half of the universe’s souls to appease his love DEATH! This Perez cover has gone on to be one of the best Thanos of all time!
The telling of the Infinity Gems, top half drawn by George Perez….bottom by Stalin
In these next two scenes Thanos makes good on his promise to Death
And with the snap of a finger…..half the universe is gone!!
There are very few covers that I totally love like I do this one! Just classic Thanos!
The Ensuing battle with the Marvel Universe where Thanos beats everyone down and the awesome “walk down” scene with Captain America!

Not going to spoil the ending of the book and Ron Lim finished it any ways.
