Can Jim Starlin and Ron Lim Recapture Infinity Gauntlet Magic on New Thanos Annual?

Like all reunions, sequels, and revivals twenty-five years after the original: yes!

As revealed in today's Marvel May solicits, Infinity Gauntlet and Silver Surfer creative team Jim Starlin and Ron Lim will reunite in an attempt to capture the magic of their original cosmic tales in Thanos Annual #1, a one-shot story that will lead into Starlin's upcoming Thanos OGN. From the solicits:

For fans of the team's work back in the eighties and nineties, the reunion is a dream come true. After all, who doesn't love it when creators return to a property they made famous back in the day?

"I can't think of a single instance where artists reunited three decades after their heydey and the product wasn't just as good as it was in it's original incarnation," explained Professor of Ludicrously Incorrect Statements at the prestigious University of Phoenix, Thaddeus T. Puffinbottoms. "As the great Thomas Wolfe novel tells us, You Can Go Home Again."

It seems that quite a few entertainment industry veterans agree:

"It's gonna be great," commented Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose.

"I predict a smash hit," said Star Wars Prequel Trilogy creator George Lucas.

"I can't envision any scenario in which this isn't completely awesome," added X-Men Forever scribe Chris Claremont.

"Fantastic!" shouted Superman Returns star Brandon Routh.

"Shut up and take my money, brother!" replied TNA Impact wrestling icon Hulk Hogan.

"How could this go wrong?" wondered Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull star Harrison Ford.

"I can't wait for this," cheered Blues Brothers 2000 actor Dan Aykroyd.

"Though I'm surprised they were able to get the project off the ground," the Ghostbusters 3 star added sadly.

Thanos Annual #1 will be on sale in May. It's sure to be just as good as everything you remember from your childhood.
