    For the moment Rick and the Surfer are all good, but I can't tell you the rest of the story because I'm not that guy. If you want to know how this issue ends you should visit your local comic shop and pick it up. It's worth it, trust me. Read Full Review

    Leonard Kirk is absolutely killing it on art, though. He has a clean yet dynamic style that helps fit this book nicely into the aesthetic of the rest of the Ultimate Universe. There's one double page spread of Galactus that's just mind boggling. Kirk's use of scale and epicness literally made me yell "WOAH!" and hold the comic out at arm's length to take the whole thing in. Read Full Review

    Galactus is in the Ultimate Universe. That's really all you need to know if you're a fan of either. There is also the great addition of Joshua Hale Fialkov and Leonard Kirk writing and drawing the comic (respectively). It's easy to assume that Galactus can't possibly "win" in this series. Then again, stranger things have happened in comics and especially in the Ultimate Universe. Fialkov is up to something here and with someone like Galactus running around, you're not going to want to miss anything. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Aug 8, 2013

    Rick Jones was the best character to use in this situation because this is all new to him. He has never seen the evils that the Universe holds, he has never seen the evils that people can act against each other, and he has never faced a threat such as Galactus. It's a story built up like a hero rising to the occasion. Being given a power so great, and a responsibility that comes with it that only he can carry. Sounds like Spider-Man that I'm describing, but that is just the way it is and so far Fialkov has created a story worth following from the Ultimate Universe. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Aug 9, 2013

    The arrival of Galactus in the Ultimate Marvel Universe would be where most event series end, and that this one has begun that way is one of the many reasons that this mini-series is worth more than a cursory glance Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Aug 9, 2013

    The Gah Lak Tus swarm was a really interesting way to change up Galactus back in the early days of the Ultimate Universe, and now to have the original world eater coming into this other universe too it's really cool. Add to that the return of Ultimate Nova and Silver Surfer and I'm completely on board. Read Full Review

    The very need for Reed to possess the Gauntlet, according to ‘Kang”, mightbe to drive Galactus back to the standard universe? We just don't know and with 2 issues left I have a feeling it'll be a bit before we find out! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 12, 2013

    However, a lot of the space opera feeling would be lost if it weren't for Jesus Aburtov, who seems to enhance things to a degree that's almost absurd. The explosion of colors in several panels involving vast amount of energy, Galactus and the endless space surrounding such scenes is simply magnificent, showing the chaos and beauty of the universe through panels. After this series, Aburtov needs to do more cosmic. It does have some big ideas and some truly terrific art with some astounding colorization, yet the story is almost absent of any direction and the main character is verging very closely to a degree of annoyance that may hinder the whole thing. A nice issue, yet not a particularly strong one. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 10, 2013

    The two overarching questions of this miniseries are both driven by the same underlying concern: How much change can it actually create in the comics? Will they, as rumors have it, destroy the Ultimate Marvel reality? Will Galactus retain his enhanced abilities if and when he returns to mainstream 616 reality? As neat as it is to give one of Marvel's oldest antagonists a power-grade bump, the story feels somehow remote to me (though it may be my unfamiliarity with the Ultimate properties coming into play.) Hunger #2 asks some interesting questions, but is undermined by the fact that the comic-book status quo will render the answers moot in short order, earning 3 out of 5 stars overall. It's a nice looking book, certainly, and not nearly as depressing as its seemingly apocalyptic story elements would have it seem... Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - FTG Contributor Aug 10, 2013

    Overall Hunger #2is the worst kind of comic to review because of how non-descript it is. The artwork is above average and the story is passable but there's just nothing of substance to grab hold of, no atmosphere of dread or desperation to Galactus's coming, no innovative new twist on the world devourer being in a new universe, no character focus or insight into those involved. Maybe if you're a huge Ultimate fan there's something for you here but if you're coming in from Age of Ultron or as a lover of Galactus I don't recommend Hunger. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Aug 7, 2013

    Kirk, at least, gives the issue a moderately grandiose feel, highlighted by a large spread of an immensely imposing Galactus that's atypical of the rest of the story. Adi Granov's cover is gorgeous, as his covers always are, but ironically it symbolizes the problem with the story: the best part of the issue is before it even begins. The whole idea of Galactus invading the Ultimate Universe is compelling, but the execution falls woefully short of its promise. Instead of delivering any kind of awe or astonishment, the entire issue is embedded with a detached feeling of emotionlessness; things that should have been awesome simply are not. "Hunger" is aptly named, as anyone who craves intergalactic, multidimensional, cosmic wonder is going to remain hungry. Read Full Review
