5 Comic Books to Read Before Seeing Avengers_ Infinity War in Theaters!

It is no secret that I cannot wait for Avengers: Infinity War to hit theaters on April 27th. I am a bit of a Marvel Fan Girl, in case you did not know, and have been counting the days for years. As a big comic book fan, I have seen this coming for quite some time. If you are not someone who reads comics, let me suggest at least five that you should pick up before heading to theaters. Trust me, this will help you walk in to the film prepared – but won’t give anything away!


The Infinity Gauntlet

The Infinity Gauntlet

It’s the Avengers, the New Warriors, the X-Men and more against the omnipotent Eternal, Thanos! The Mad Titan has become the most powerful being in the universe, and enslavement or destruction may be the only choices he gives it! The successive Starlin sagas that shook space and time start here!

The Infinity War

After Adam Warlock’s return in Infinity Gauntlet, his worse half the Magus wasn’t far behind!

Will the universe be saved, destroyed… or both?

infinity war aftermath

Infinity War Aftermath

The Infinity War is over – now continue the story with Warlock and the Infinity Watch! Can a comatose Adam overcome his identity crisis and put himself back together again? If he does, Silver Surfer has a favor to ask -one that would pit Warlock against Mephisto for the soul of Surfer’s love Shalla-Bal! Plus, there’s the battle that green ink was invented for: Drax the Destroyer vs. the Incredible Hulk! Meanwhile, Quasar battles for the title of Protector of the Universe – and his very life; Pip the Troll battles a resident of Monster Isle, the deadly Gamora confronts the U.N. – and don’t miss a very Thanos Christmas!

Infinity Quest

Guardians of the Galaxy: Infinity Quest

I have written about this series before. In order to understand what is going on with Warlock and the Infinity Stones, it is a must read. Get to know the Guardians a little bit better along the way at the same time. Synopsis: As the Guardians begin their search for the Infinity Stones in earnest…they join up with the Nova Corps?!? That’s right – the Guardians are going to be walking the space beat officially!
