    Get in on this book now, before it sells out. I recommend this to everyone. It's fun, the art is beautiful and the story is engrossing. It's the Ultimate Universe, so you don't need to know too much history to understand the characters and world. I'd say this was the pick of the week, but I haven't read all my books yet.

    I'll admit that I found the majority of Ultimate Avengers 2 #1 to be little more than well-drawn wasted space. But there's plenty to get excited about in Millar's next iteration of the Ultimate Avengers, and this issue does at least begin the process of sowing those seeds. Just bear in mind that your enjoyment may hinge on how many times you've seen Punisher "do his thing." Read Full Review

    The change in art is a welcome one as well, with Leinil Francis Yus rougher style fitting the tone of the book much better than the crisp and clean style of the last artist. The book does look amazing, a bonus considering the lack of content. Yus characters are expressive and cool looking, certainly the Punishers new costume looks very cool. With all the fighting, art has to be stellar and, while it didnt fully distract, Yus art is just that. His actions sequences are fun to look at, and Captain Americas angry and brutal fighting style looks awesome in Yus hands, as does the Punishers multiple murders. Read Full Review

    The recruiting of Castle is accomplished through interesting means and leads to the return of a costume design no one thought would be seen again. That it shows up here as a somewhat serious change to the character's appearance makes me wonder how much of the issue is meant to be tongue-in-cheek. It's a slow start to this arc, more a Punisher solo comic without a lot of plot than anything else. Hopefully, things pick up next issue with the second new recruit of the team. Read Full Review
