    Who'd have thought a character piece starring Galactus would be one of the best comic books out this week? Read Full Review

    Christian Ward is an immensely talented artist, with an incredible sense of color, and some truly imaginative and wild interpretations of character and layout. In other words, he's the perfect guest artist for this one-shot issue of The Ultimates which focuses on Galactus and his attempt to free Eternity from its chains. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Apr 30, 2016

    Ewing is really giving us an odyssey through space and it might be too soon to say, but it seems that Galactus is going to be the liaison between the Ultimates and the grand scheme of things happening in the universe. If this is true or not has yet to be seen, but it's great to see such a major character as Galactus playing a larger role in the Marvel universe and seeing exactly what makes his role in the galaxy so important, especially now that it has changed.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Apr 27, 2016

    This is a very different issue of the series, but it still works. It's an enjoyable read and guest artist Christian Ward fits right into the tone of the story. We get to go into the mind of Galactus, which we've seen before, but it's been quite a while since that's happened. This is still one of my favorite on-going series right now, and what I'm most interested in seeing is what happens with this team during the upcoming CIVIL WAR II, since this whole team is all about stopping threats before they start.

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault May 1, 2016

    Accompanying Sisyphus in Tartarus was Tantalus, who stood in a river pristine and potable, parched with thirst, but unable to drink a drop, its waters receding so soon as he stooped to sip; who stood starving beneath a tree bearing fruits of fig, pear, and pomegranate, but whose branches would blow out of reach as he outstretched his arm. Rarely has there ever been so great a disparity between the outstanding quality of a comics writing and the abject awfulness of its art. Marvel ought to refund the issue and reprint it with all new art. The prospect of seeing Kenneth Rocaforts rendition of Ewings best script in the series so far is truly tantalizing. Yet like those stygian waters and that chthonic fruit, such an imaginary issue will remain forever out of reach, leaving readers with nothing but painful pangs, disappointed desires, and the piece of trash that is the actual Ultimates #6.
