    I'm starting to have a love/hate relationship with Cary Nord's art. His close-ups are highly detailed and full of emotion. Unfortunately, that effect lessens greatly as figures move further into the background. At times, more distant shots make it seem like the page was smeared with Vaseline, with only rough splotches of color making it through. Luckily, those are kept to a minimum. As we all know, there's a predetermined quota of fight scenes for all series involving the Hulk. We haven't nearly come close to meeting that figure yet, so expect it to commence early and often next issue, but don't let that deter you from reading one of the more surprisingly satisfying Marvel limited series since the original Annihilation.

    Anyway, if you've been following this series like me, be ready for a nice surprise with this issue. I love how unconventional it is – yet, it works. If this series were a TV show (because that's what it feels like), this episode would be nominated for an Emmy (or something). Very cool. Read Full Review

    This issue is Ultimate Human's equivalent of the supervillain monologue: a long piece of exposition which adds some welcome depth and dimension to the story's antagonist, but which doesn't make for a particularly compelling story on its own. Still, it's an issue which is well-executed by both writer and artist, and I'm sure it will feel far more natural and satisfying once the series is collected, and it can be read as part of one contiguous story.

    I complained in the review last issue that weve gotten too much talk and not enough smash, the covers promise one thing and the inside gives something else. There is nothing in this issue to change that but I found this issues gabfest much more entertaining. Warrens Peter Wisdom is surly and mean spirited and you know exactly where the whole thing is headed. Im hoping for the big payoff in the last issue but I can only really suggest this story for hardcore Ellis fans. Read Full Review

    It was a Leader's origin and it was very boring at first, because you just sit here and don't understand a single thing they all are talking about. But after a while you understand and everything makes sense and it becomes a nice backstory. Could be better, could be shorter, but I'm fine with that. I just feel bad for somebody, who could start reading this series buying this exact issue. I think they would totally hate it.
