Who—or what—is Ultimate X? As the world comes back from the brink of destruction, those left behind struggle to find some semblance of hope. One young woman in particular--the alluring and mysterious Karen--tries to build her life back together, but seems to be hiding something...or rather running away from it. Why so serious, Karen? Maybe her dirty little secret isn’t so little, and might be the key to the mystery of the ULTIMATE X! Brought to you by Eisner award-winning writer JEPH LOEB and legendary illustrator ARTHUR ADAMS! Rated T …$3.99

    This is a great introduction to the character of Karen and is just as intriguing as the first issue of this series. I really don't know where this book is going, but I'm excited to find out as Loeb and Adams have done a great job of laying the foundation with these strong characters. Read Full Review

    So far, this series has been a lot of fun (though I'm still on the fence about Wolvie's son). As long as that continues, I'll keep buying it (and hoping for no relapses on Loeb's part). Read Full Review

    Ultimate Comics X has its fair share of problems, but it also shows a great deal of potential so far. As long as Loeb keeps his focus squarely on characterization rather than attempting to mold this book into a run-of-the-mill replacement for Ultimate X-Men, I'll remain interested in where the creative team are headed.

    At the end of the day, the overused narration transforms it from a great book to just a good one, it's so annoying. Hopefully once Loeb finishes introducing his cast (since this same technique was used in the first issue) he'll ditch this storytelling technique, because it's getting in the way of what is otherwise a strong collaboration between Loeb and Adams. Until then, though, I guess I'll just try and ignore as many of them as possible. If you do that, well, you'll probably end up a lot happier. Read Full Review
