Has Thanos made a mistake by leaving Gamora on Zero Sanctuary? Will Gamora fight to defend herself? Let’s find out!!

As Gamora eludes Proxima, Maw, and company she makes her way to the hanger bay and tries to make use of the surveillance cameras that Thanos frequently monitors. Gamora makes contact with Thanos and he appears to abandon her, although she states that she doesn’t want him to die.

Gamora fights her way towards her ship and is injured, but escapes on her ship.

At the Crunch Cascade, Thanos and Magus have a conversation that turns violent.

Gamora then makes a rash decision that could kill everyone.

Thanos and Gamora meet up and Thanos shows his true colors. They both reveal they’ve been using each other to an extent. The issue ends on Halfworld with some nice foreshadowing of the final issue. To be concluded…

I thought this was only a five-issue mini. I Must have missed it when it was extended. Not sure why an issue was added though. We see Gamora use some ingenuity and see that while young, she is wise beyond her years. By the end of the issue, we finally get down to the heart of the matter and Thanos tells Gamora how he really feels about her, and Gamora does the same.  I am very glad we got that and it was the best part of the issue in my opinion.

The art was confusing to me. When I first saw the cover I thought I was seeing two Luke Cages fighting Thanos. The coloring was just a bit off to me in contrast with the coloring on the interior pages.

Final Thoughts

With one issue left we finally get Thanos being his own true self. I’m curious to see how Magus will factor in the finale.
