    This was an epic conclusion to Cataclysm, the catalyst to it as well given how he made his way to Earth. Great pacing for four issues and not once did it not forget to remind you of how dangerous both Galactus and the Gah Lak Tus swarm are. The art is great as well given how much Kirk had to handle with the swarm and just all the blasting and explosions going on all over the place, so much goes on in a single issue and you have to commend him for being able to pull off how great it looks. If you are a fan of the Ultimate Universe, and find yourself interested in the Cataclysm event, this mini series is a must buy. Read Full Review

    What did you think about the countdown on the Ultimate Universe beginning? Any guesses on which characters will cross over into continuity? Sad that we'll probably be losing some of The Ultimates and Ultimate X-Men forever? Sound off below! Read Full Review

    HUNGER #4 delivers the fun and excitement of Hungry Hungry Hippos without the anger or palm blisters. When you look at the bigger picture of what's happening with the 616 and Ultimate Universes, HUNGER is an awesome story. It's a fun piece that moves the event forward and prepares fans for CATACLYSM. While readers know most of what is going to happen with this issue because the next event starts in November, there's still a few twist and turns along the way. Fialkov and Kirk do a great job with making this large scale event and battle feel epic. Overall, it's a great read for Ultimate Universe fans. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Oct 22, 2013

    Overall this issue is solid, but the series as a whole was a bit of a let down. If you're looking to jump on board the next Ultimates Event, this isn't a must read. You'd be fine reading that first issue's recap/setup page to know what you need to follow that series. I'm not sure what will happen with the Ultimates Universe post Cataclysm, but series like this shows that the Ultimate Universe is not the exciting and fresh universe it once was. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Oct 21, 2013

    Overall, with its emphasis on providing a lead-in to "Cataclysm" and on resolving the relationship between Galactus and Gah Lak Tus, "Hunger" feels a lot like one of those "stories about stories." There's nothing wrong with "Hunger" in that it gets characters from the last story and lines them up for the next, but considered in isolation it just lacks any real substance. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Oct 17, 2013

    There are some shining spots here and there, yet the rushed pacing and the rather chaotic art makes for a read that is barely passable. It could have been much better, yet this conclusion could also have been worse. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Oct 18, 2013

    Hunger's an awkwardly dull footnote to the fascinating history of the Ultimate Universe (orignal home of the Marvel Zombies, among other things), a quick money-siphon before Bendis delivers the genuine article. Read Full Review
