Now that the mysterious Vampire X has unleashed his vampire goons, they're out for the Avengers' blood. But with the new Daredevil sporting fangs, it looks like even heroes are susceptible to the vampire bite.

    Despite these positives, this is a pretty slight issue. The premise is established, a couple of scenes are delivered, and it's over. That slow, sparse pacing has been a flaw with "Ultimate Comics Avengers" in previous stories and last issue looked like it had that problem out of the way for this story, but apparently not. What's here is well done by everyone, aside from a very lame joke involving Millar himself, but it goes by so quickly that it doesn't feel like a complete comic. It should be a great thing when everyone involved hits their stride, if that happens. Read Full Review

    I will admit that I'm invested in this arc. I want to see who the Iron Man vampire is, even if I have strong feelings about who it is, and I want to see how the good guys can get out of this little hole they're in. I can't even say that I'm disappointed in the arc because the second one gave me little hope that the Ultimate Avengers will be able to recover from decompressed stories that just aren't interesting.

    I dont say this often, but I honesty have very little good to say about this issue. I actually intended to be a little more positive when I started writing this review, but I realized that I didnt have much positive to say. Im not one of the many detractors of Mark Millar and I genuinely enjoy many of his comic books, but I just didnt like this issue. For whatever reason, I didnt hate it, but I really did not like it either. I would strongly recommend to anyone, even Ultimates fans, that they wait for the trade to read these issues as they are not worth the $3.99 asking price. Now I obviously havent read this entire story arc and can only judge of the two issues that have been released but unless Millar has some amazing twists in store in later issues, I dont see volume three ever being worth a full purchase.
