    With all the doom and gloom of the plot, Hickman still manages to create a few moments of humor. Thor's take on reality TV is enough to earn a big laugh, and the back-and-forth between Spider-Woman and Captain Britain is equally funny. It is the small moments between the super heroics where Hickman truly shines. That is where he adds flavorful character moments and injects personality into his story so that when the action starts up, the reader is truly invested in his lifelike creations. Read Full Review

    The Hulk finally gets to let loose as he rampages through Reed Richards City. Part of what makes this series so great are the fantastic illustrations of Esad Ribic, I particularly liked the page where The Hulk is facing a floating Reed Richards. I wouldnt mind having that page as a wall poster in my man-cave. With Zorns people initiating the first act of war and the way this issue ends, next issues gonna be apocalyptic to say the least. Written by Jonathan Hickman (The Manhattan Projects). From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    All in all, the events of "Ultimate Comics Ultimates" #8 needed to take place for the good of the overall plot, but the eighth issue remains anemic on its own. The Ultimates themselves remain woefully unprepared for The City and the response of their own government, which scales back the impact of the team itself to a certain extent. Even Hulk's mission in the text is, admittedly, nonexistent -- these elements may be planted to emphasize the need for a tactician like Steve Rogers on the team, but they also take away from the sense of epic confrontation the series has cultivated to this point. Although a slight misstep, "Ultimate Comics Ultimates" #8 proves that even when Hickman is off, his work remains in the upper-echelon of writing. Thanks to Esad & Ribic, it is hard to fault Hickman for thinking in terms of trade paperback; it is going to be gorgeous. Read Full Review
