Guess who’s coming to dinner? Well, I don’t actually know if he’s coming to dinner or to eradicate the entire universe, but Thanos is back! In the most recent issue of Marvel Previews, it was revealed that in April’s issue of Guardians of the Galaxy, Thanos will make his return. is quoted as saying about this issue: “The Story: He’s back…Thanos! How did he return? Why is he back? And what does the appearance of the galaxy’s #1 threat mean for our rag-tag band of universal protectors? Find out in the next issue of the comic that calls “Awesome. Amazingly, jaw-droppingly awesome.” Rated T …$2.99 In Stores: Apr 21, 2010.”

Abnett and Lanning are the current writers on this book, and all of Marvel’s cosmic books for that matter, but this issue was solicited with none other than Fantastic Four scribe Jonathan Hickman as the writer. Dale Eaglesham is on pencils and the cover is by Alex Garner (although Marvel’s site reads that Gerald Parel is the cover artist). The mad Titan, the worshipper of Mistress Death himself will be coming to a comic book shop near you in April, so don’t you dare miss it!
