    It's yet another hit from the CATACLYSM event. Between the main story, the Ultimate Spider-Man tie in, and this, this is turning out to be one hell of a good time, and better yet, there's still an Ultimate X-Men tie-in coming down the pipeline as well. Here, the Ultimates learn that Galactus isn't the only threat, and the stakes are raised as they face him as well as a cult led by one of my personal favorite villains. If you're an Ultimate fan, this is a must have issue, even if it is just a tie-in. Even if you're not reading the Ultimates, this is a book you should really check out because it's that entertaining.

    The end result is a comic book that is a fun read and a thrill a minute. It's rather a shame that I'm just now catching notice of some of these characters as they charge towards oblivion, but Fialkov is making that charge exciting and infectious. Despite not being the biggest Ultimate Universe aficionado, I have been enjoying the "Cataclysm" event and am now hooked into the developments of "Cataclysm: Ultimates" as mayhem and destruction continue to erupt all across the Ultimate Comics Universe.

    Good, but not great. Pick it up a bit faster, Marvel. More Galactus. More destruction. I want the Ultimate universe to go out with a bang and I don't want to regret buying the finale. Read Full Review

    Carmine Di Giandomenico also sticks around to illustrate the book. He gives the conflict a nice sense of grit and harshness, but his work is a little looser and less defined than I'd like. And particularly with Fury, Di Giandomenico seems to reuse similar poses and facial expressions too often. Read Full Review

    Cataclysm: Ultimate Comics Ultimates #1 ushers in the end of the Ultimates, and succeeds on a story level. The failure here is with Carmine Di Giandomenico's art. There is zero consistency to what he's doing. Some points look great, as though time and effort were put into it, but others look rushed. Several of the Fury panels give the character an oblong skull. Giandomenico's proportions are off, and his faces look too inconsistent to be interesting. The end of the Ultimates deserves better than slapped-together art like this. Read Full Review
