    Another amazing issue. I'm loving all the Ultimate books, minus Ultimate Spidey which I'm not reading. Hickman and Ribic are killing it on this book, and especially loving Ribic's artwork on this one. The high concept writing is toned down a bit for this issue, and the action scenes are great. Hawkeye, for me, is a stand-out character in this new universe, even though he's not the star of this book. I didn't like the fact this wasn't a good place for new readers to start and I feel like this issue could have gone a little more forward with the story. I highly recommend this book and issue.

    As S.H.I.E.L.D. attempts to attack The City, an explosive battle unfolds involving helicarriers, mech suits, and nuclear warheads. The scripting takes the reader in close so they feel every bombardment, gunshot, and hammer swing. Esad Ribic is the reason all of this works so well. He fills the pages with such dynamic action that each panel crackles with kinetic energy. With all he does right, Tony Stark looks eerily gleeful in one panel, while Nick Fury loses his confident demeanor a few times, transforming him into a scared little boy. It feels wrong to see Fury so afraid; he ought to look distressed and troubled, which is more in line with the man in charge we have come to know and love. Regardless, the art is as high caliber as the story, which has raised the stakes to inconceivable heights. Read Full Review

    Normally, you read a comic where the heroes are up against a force so dominant and you're sure that the good guys will pull out a win somehow. In "The Ultimates," there is no guarantee of that happening since the status quo is able to change so freely. Hickman is taking advantage of the freedom given on a book like this. Best jump aboard "The Ultimates" now, because, the way this story is going, the team may not be around much longer. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, I'm not sure if this is leading to the moment that will turn this all around or if what I'm expecting was misguided, but what I'm getting is simply not knocking my socks off. Read Full Review
