The NZA Posted November 18, 2009 Share Posted November 18, 2009 note: more than half of these characters are now dead. I thought we should have a new topic for "Ultimate Comics", the sort-of relaunch after the mess that was Ultimatum. New lineups, half of NY/the x-men are dead, etc. Ultimate Spider-Man is great as ever, 4 or so issues in and its Bendis and new artist Lafuente...current arc's on the relaunch Mysterio and Bendis' challenge to not make him lame (its going alright so far). That cover is not doing the regular art justice, though Peter does now look even younger than when Bagley drew him. Ultimate Avengers is solid enough to make you (almost) forget about Utlimates vol 3. Millar's back, with Carlos Pacheco (not Hitch, but he's good. Plus, next arc's supposed to be Lenil Francis Yu, i like that guy). If you wanna know: Cap found out he had a bastard son hidden from him, and its the Red Skull (who can kick his ass 10 ways to sunday) so he went rogue, halfway-criminalized Fury is back with a black-ops team of the surviving Avengers to reel him in. its all going well so far. Next up, though, we have some preview art for Ultimate Comics X-Men, which again is in the wake of too many characters to name, but the big one is . yeah, you know he cant stay dead, but im still not sure what im looking at: what is this i dont even ...yeah. you want even weirder? its Loeb (*sigh*) and Art freakin Adams, a really classic comics artist. which is to say, this could very easily be the best looking piece of weird crap marvel puts out, and i really hope to be wrong abotu the latter part. come to think of it...i really hope that's Ultimate Mimic or something. *edit: solicit says... Who—or what—is Ultimate X? The answers and even more secrets arrive in the all new ULTIMATE X ongoing bi-monthly series from the superstar dream team of JEPH LOEB and ART ADAMS. Wolverine is dead. Captain America is a fugitive. The Fantastic Four disbanded. Lives have been destroyed and nothing can ever be the same—is there any hope left? It all begins with a search for a brand new character whose identity will leave jaws on the floor and change the Ultimate Universe forever. on the upside, i now know what the comic i wanted to do about myself in high school wouldve looked like if i could draw worth a fuck Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
