The Infinity Stones Become Living Beings in 'Infinity Watch' Annuals

Running through annuals all summer long, 'Infinity Watch' kicks off this June in Derek Landy, Salvador Larroca, and Sara Pichelli's 'Thannos Annual' #1.

The most coveted artifacts in the known universe have resurfaced, and this time, they’re bonded to the very bodies and souls of Marvel’s up-and-coming heroes and villains. For the Mad Titan, that just makes his hunt for them all the more sweeter.

Across nine annuals starting with June’s THANOS ANNUAL #1, witness the latest cosmos-shattering Infinity saga as celebrated icons and new fan-favorites battle it out to contain—or control—the limitless power of the Infinity Stones in the blockbuster summer event: INFINITY WATCH. Discover what awaits in INFINITY WATCH parts four through six this July and August!

The INFINITY WATCH crossover will be spearheaded by acclaimed writer Derek Landy (CAPTAIN AMERICA/IRON MAN). In addition to writing key chapters of the event, Landy will team up with artist Sara Pichelli on backup stories in each of the nine annuals that follow the creation and pursuit of the mysterious Death Stone-bearer who will be revealed in THANOS ANNUAL #1. 

The saga will follow up on previous Infinity Stone stories with the return of recent bearers including Star, Overtime, Prince of Power, Quantum, and Multitude, as well as introduce you to the new Mind Stone-Bearer for the first time! As they deal with their god-like powers and mistrust from their peers, Thanos, fresh off his own dramatic transformation in Christopher Cantwell’s recent THANOS limited series, begins a bloody march to claim his dark destiny once more.

On crafting the latest Infinity Stones saga, Landy said, "When you write for Marvel, it's all you can hope for to add your thread to the massive tapestry of stories that has been unfolding since 1961. To be asked, then, to spearhead this next chapter is a prospect beyond my paltry imagination."

"I get to work on characters I've never written before—Thanos! Hulk!—and drag them into the story beside the new generation of heroes like Ms. Marvel and Spider-Boy," he continued. "Thankfully, there is absolutely no pressure because comic fans are a notoriously easy-going bunch who are prepared to forgive if—oh dear God."
