    Mark Bagley is given an issue that is largely talking heads, and while this doesn't exactly make for a powerful showcase for his art, his ability to keep things visually engaging with a wide range of facial expressions is on full display. My only really complaint about the art is that Peter's sorry state isn't all that well presented, as the bags under his eyes don't really sell the idea that he's as sick as the writing seems to want him to be. It is nice to get a cover image that related to the story inside though, even if it is a bit premature. Read Full Review

    Nothing too extraordinary takes place, although a couple of cameos and humorous scenes make it a little more than ho-hum. The arc plods along, but unless the next issue proves otherwise, this might not be Bendis' most original piece of work. The overload from doing too much at once might have started to kick in for the Ultimate writer himself. Read Full Review
