Thanos and Dreadstar creator (and Warlock reviver) Jim Starlin posted on Facebook over the weekend,

Just finished penciling and scripting my four-issue story arc (#7-10) for the Savage Hulk Series. Not sure what I’m going to do now, seeing as how I can’t do any further Thanos/Adam Warlock stories, as was the plan.

Following up with,

Okay, this time, after I brought Adam Warlock back from the dead in the Infinity Revelation, someone at Marvel anonymously put a corporation-wide-no-use restriction on the character, effectively putting the brakes on the on-going plans I had for him and the Titan.

With IDW editor-in-chief (and ex-writer of Kevin Smith’s Move Poop Shoot site) Chris Ryall adding “Come do a new Dreadstar series at IDW, Jim.”

Starlin concluded on the thread, saying “no need to comment further. Pretty clear from the comments that I’ve got plenty of options to consider. The past is the past, even it’s mistakes. Keeping my eye on tomorrow.”

Sorry, the kids are watching it on DVD.

Marvel’s Tom Brevoort posted on his Tumblr, in response to this question.

Any truth to the rumors that Thanos will be vanishing from Marvel comics for over a year, and that “the rug has been pulled out” from under Jim Starlin and his Warlock-Thanos tale? This is supposedly from Jim himself according to a few sources. I spoke with a friend who was formally a well respected comic blogger who claims to have received this info “from the horses mouth himself” Mr Jim. This is as was told to him, because Warlock and Thanos are in the films and Disney-Marvel are hiding them.

Yeah, Marvel haven’t exactly hidden people who are in the films before, have they? Tom replied,

Your friend really needs to get a better talking horse to listen to.

No, there’s no truth to this. Thanos will be appearing as much as ever in our books.

This is all really about something else, something much smaller that Jim probably shouldn’t even have taken public on his Facebook page. But he did, so there you go. But it’s grown and changed and become so exaggerated as the information passes from one “well-respected comics blogger” to another that it bears no resemblance to the truth.

Glad to have you here to put things straight, Tom! Or, at least, only slightly askew!
