I just read the first volume of Infinity Crusade and was wondering who else has read Infinity Gauntlet, Infinity War, and/or Infinity Crusade. I quit comics in the middle of Crusade and never finished. The series are pretty bad and are full of very lame fight scenes, especially Infinity War.

Jim Starlin wrote all 3 series as well as some of the Adam Warlock miniseries that came out around them. The guy had a major hard on for Adam Warlock and Thanos.

I've read Infinity Gauntlet. It is forgettable.

Probably because he created him.....and Drax.

I've never read it mainly because I haven't heard good things.

I imagine once War of Kings wraps, people will take a look at the Infinity era and the Annihilation era, much like people look at old Claremontian X-Men compared to the new X-Stuff. Stuff that was good at it's time, but when compared to modern stories it really doesn't hold up.

You took the words right out of my mouth. Part of me fears that Infernus will sour my view of Inferno.

And it's easily the best of the 3. Sad.

The series started out good. (remember this was the 90's) Thanos Quest was interesting and the art was really good and it set up Infinity Gauntlet well. And I thought IG was good in and of itself. But the other series were just awful and they got progressively worse as they went on.

The Infinity stories don't even compare to the Annihilation stories. Annihilation (both of them) was/were actually good.

I read the Guantlet, which was decent.

Bimbo Thanos made me giggle.

EDIT: I also read an issue of the Warlock series that spun off from it. It was forgettable.

I read Infinity War, and it was all right if you're in the mood to see a bunch of characters doing things, which I often am.

I recently start downlo. . . I mean, collecting. . . every Marvel comic starting with January 1990, so I'll get to through the whole thing eventually.

That's not even a fair fight! Of course Annihilation is better, but I remember Infinity Gauntlet being a lot better of a story than a lot of the other crap coming out around that time. For superhero event books anyway. In 1991. Consider this: around the same time you had events like Atlantis Attacks or Evolutionary War... flimsy stories to sell crappy annuals. Infinity Gauntlet was fun to read the first time around, but it just doesn't have a lot of replay value.
