Written by Joe Keatinge and illustrated by Richard Elson, Thanos: Son of Titan will serve as an origin story for the immortal supervillain.
"It is about how Thanos came to be," Keatinge told USA Today. "I don't go Forrest Gump on it, but aspects of the Marvel Universe have been born that directly turn Thanos into who he is."
Thanos returned to the Marvel Universe in Avengers Assemble #3 following a year-long absence. The character is expected to play a prominent role in future events.
The villain is also expected to heavily feature in Marvel Studios' cinematic universe after making a brief appearance in The Avengers' post-credits sequence.
Thanos: Son of Titan #1 is released in October.
