    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Dec 31, 2008

    Every major story arc needs a moment where the characters can catch their breath before dealing with the next big challenge. This issue is just that, and allows readers to see the characters just being normal. I'd rather this issue be way out of sync with Ultimatum if it means seeing really good character moments than doing an abrupt change just to sell more issue. Ultimately Ultimate Spider-Man #129 is so well put together, it earns 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Bendis is rarely stronger anywhere than he is on USM. Stuart Immonen continues to shine as well, even though this issue is somewhat light on action. Ultimate Spider-Man seems to be going against the grain of the Ultimatum universe at the moment. Ultimatum would have you believe that the Ultimate Universe is fundamentally broken, and that the only way to fix it is to break it even further. USM doesn't take any of that guff. It's thesis is much simpler. Tell quality, compelling stories, and the Ultimate U. will fix itself. I happen to like USM's approach better. It's just a shame that no one else at Marvel seems to be listening. Read Full Review
