WAR OF THE SYMBIOTES PART 2 Deep inside Roxxon headquarters lies a vial containing the symbiote substance...or at least it did, until the Beetle stole it! Can Spider-Man capture this bug thug before disaster strikes?

    Anyway,Ultimate Spider-Man #124 is another well-written, beautifully drawn book of the sort we've come to expect from this title. Spidey is funny, the sub-text is engagingly mysterious, and the new Beetle is waaaaaaaaaaay cooler than the original. I could go on, but really, if you love comics you should be reading this book yourself anyway. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Aug 2, 2008

    Stuart Immonen plays his strengths this issue while some scenes suffer. He has always excelled at the action sequences in this title, bringing more energy to Bendis already hyperactive scripts and this issue is no exception. The fighting sequences remain tons of fun to watch and I am especially enjoying Immonens Venom with all his tentacles everywhere. HIs backgrounds are great during the fight with the Beetle, with Manhatten at sunset looking very pretty as Spider-Man keeps popping up to annoy the silent perpetrator. But for the scenes without the masks, the emotional side just does not register in his pencilling unless extreme close-ups are used. Faces seem bland and with contortions from farther back, but up close his expressions instantly seem cleaner. Unfortunately, it doesnt work, but the action sequences make up for this as there is much more Spider-Man than Peter Parker this issue. Read Full Review

    I'll live, though. Even if Bendis is taking his sweet time getting to where I want him to go, I'm having a blast with USM. This series is singlehandedly keeping the Ultimate flame alive. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 31, 2008

    It's still Ultimate SpiderMan, so everyone should be able to enjoy it on some level, but these last couple of issues have killed all the momentum the book had been building with Super Friends and other arcs. Read Full Review
