Jim Starlin appears at Barnes & Noble to sign Thanos: The Infinity Revelation on Saturday August 2, 2014 at 2:00 PM

About the book:
There is an imbalance in the universe. And, since his latest return from oblivion, Thanos himself feels… incomplete. Now the so-called Mad Titan would put both wrongs right. A pilgrimage to Death’s dark domain, and the revelatory waters of the Infinity Well, leads Thanos on a new quest, with a once sworn enemy at his side. A crusade that will bring confrontation with the Silver Surfer and the galaxy’s mightiest heroes, the Annihilators. An odyssey that will change everything. Cosmic maestro Jim Starlin returns to his signature character in a tale of death and rebirth that will transform the Marvel Universe once more!
