    Although Im keen to see this story progress a little quicker, this issue has convinced me that Ill be happy enough even if Ellis continues to adopt his slow-burn pacing for the remainder of the series. Hes a strong enough writer to make even the talking-heads scenes feel dynamic and exciting, and the mystery surrounding the Silver Surfers nature in the Ultimate Universe is a particularly compelling part of the book which Im eager to see continue. Coupled with Petersons solid artwork a great fit for the Ultimate Universe, especially with Ponsors colours this is book is fast emerging as the strongest of Ellis Ultimate Galaktus trilogy.

    The Ultimate Galactus trilogy-and-a-bit has been something of a mixed bag, but Extinction is shaping up to not only be the strongest chapter so far, but a very strong miniseries in its own right. Theres a palpable sense of escalating tension (even though this is set before the main Ultimate titles), and the creative team seem to be putting in a more confident job with each issue. Good stuff.

    There are four issues to go. Based on the story so far, this will entail three and a half-ish issues of nattering to inch the story ahead, and a handful of pages of action mixed with grandeur. You may want to start a pool to guess whether the latter will occur in the fifth issue, leaving a long, lamentable denouement for the conclusion. Still, the Misty Knight story, and how it ties in with Moondoggie and the Silver Something, is curious and worth further exploration. Read Full Review
