    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 13, 2011

    You can't (or shouldn't) have a comic book death without seeing the reactions of those close to the character. I highly enjoyed the Death of Spider-Man story arc despite being tired of the numerous comic book deaths we've been seeing. Bendis simply made it work. He should us how heroic his version of Spider-Man could be and made his death matter. Because this is the Ultimate Universe, death here isn't the same as it usually is. If Ultimate Peter Parker does somehow return, he's going to do some tricky maneuvering to make his return work. Brian Bendis made me get emotionally attached. You might have an idea what type of reactions you'll see and how they play out but that doesn't lessen the impact. Combined with Bagley's depiction of the emotion on each character's face, this truly was a touching issue. Read Full Review

    Wow... That was quite the emotional ride right there... I seriously teared up when that little girl and May embraced outside the Cathedral... Hell, just typing about it is making me kind of misty eyed right now! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jul 20, 2011

    Ultimate Fallout #1 is the type of comic book that reminds me why I read comics. Brian Bendis and Mark Bagley teamed up to deliver one of the most emotional comic books in recent memory. Outside of one minor hiccup, this was the perfect issue that delivered a final four pages that will leave some readers on the verge of tears. If you are an Ultimate Spider-Man fan do yourselves a favor and pick this issue up. It is an issue that you do not want to miss out on buying. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 13, 2011

    Subsequent issues of this series will be illustrated by other artists, and the variant covers indicate that Ultimate Fallout will span the full scope of the Ultimate Universe. That worries me a bit, as I'm concerned that this will stop being about the aftermath of Peter Parker's death and will turn into a larger story about a new start for this world of super-heroes. I also know Marvel plans to relaunch a new Ultimate Spidey title with someone new (presumably) in the title role, but there's no need to start telling that story here. I want the focus to remain on emotion, to remain on Spidey's supporting cast. We'll see what lies in store, but this was a wonderful start. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 14, 2011

    This issue doesn't end on the strongest or most effective note, but for better or worse the final panel does entice readers to keep reading for the long haul. Once the mourning period is over, it should be interesting to chart the evolution of the Ultimate Universe as the new creative teams gear up for the fall. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jul 13, 2011

    As a single comic, "Ultimate Fallout" #1 feels incomplete and ill-suited to the format it has been placed in. Nonetheless, what happens in this issue is some strong character work and storytelling as those that loved and knew Peter Parker react to his death. Thankfully, we won't have to wait long for the rest of this story with issue two shipping next week. Read Full Review
