In a surprising development, Marvel Comics announced that the Thanos: Son of Titan series has been cancelled. To be written by Joe Keatinge and drawn by Richard Elson, the series was to tell the tale of just what makes Thanos tick. The initial cancellation was announced through the July 26th Marvel Mailer sent out to retailers yesterday. A shockingly quiet cancellation that Marvel isn’t commenting on at this time.
The reasons for this cancellation are all speculation at this point. Could the rumor of the creator of Thanos, Jim Starlin, suing Marvel in the future be part of this possibility? It is hard to say because at this point Marvel isn’t talking. I was looking forward to this series so hopefully at some point this could be revisited. A shame to see this go before it began, but looks like from my perspective, things are only going to get more interesting from here.
