    Comics Bulletin - Nick Boisson Aug 25, 2011

    What happens to the world when it loses its hero? This is the question that Marvel set out to answer with Ultimate Fallout. While there were some small differences between Marvel's Mainstream Universe and their Ultimate Universe, there simply were not enough to warrant Earth-1610's existence. Like any entity that fears it has become stale or has reached a plateau, Marvel's Ultimate Universe had to make a change. So, they made a drastic shift: the death of Peter Parker, our Ultimate Spider-Man. But with Spider-Man gone, the Ultimate Universe needed to begin to ask itself questions. How does this dimension move on? How do we deal? How can we once again rise up? How should we cope? Writers Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman and Nick Spencer -- currently Marvel's best and brightest -- along with a mixed bag of artists, have been trying to show their readers that the Ultimate Universe is something unique and that the journey to find these answers will be one that we wish to travel.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 17, 2011

    Ultimate Fallout had some high and low points. For the most part, it did succeed in showcasing everyone's reaction to the death of Spider-Man. Because Spider-Man has been made into the heart and soul of the Ultimate Universe, his death has been shown to have an affect on everyone. This is the end of an era and the upcoming Ultimate Comics Reborn will show us the next chapter. Despite being the end of this story, it also manages to set the stage for many characters. Things won't be the same and that is what you would want from a comic book death story. You get the feeling his death does matter. The team of writers and artists have excelled in convincing us it's real...or at least as real as it can be for fictional characters. Read Full Review

    Okay, first things first, I thoroughly enjoyed ALL three stories here. Seriously, storywise, I have no complaints... But(you had to know that was coming), the way this issue ended gave us no real finality. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Aug 19, 2011

    The comic mini-series with the blandest title in history wraps up this week pretty much the same as it's gone on for the previous five issues: herky-jerky stop-and-start storytelling, with a crazy quilt mixture of characters and creative teams. Which doesn't make it bad by definition; it does mean, though, that it helps to be in the mood for a sort of low-key roller coaster ride. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Aug 20, 2011

    Looking back on the series as a whole, it remains a puzzling offering from Marvel, so inconsistent in quality and content that, unless you were already sold on the new Ultimate books and wanted to get a taste of what's to come, you weren't buying this. For those looking for closure to "Ultimate Spider-Man" before the Miles Morales era begins, "Ultimate Fallout" #6 offers some of that. It doesn't do a whole lot else. Read Full Review
