    I am glad that Kenneth Rocafort is back on the book. No disrespect to the artist on the last book, but some of the art didn't do the book justice. Rocafort is in no way flawless, in my opinion. The dark bags under the eyes still bug me. However, it isn't enough to make me want to stop looking at it. I enjoy Rocafort's art, and I can get past the small things. Usually. I also love Dan Brown's colors on the outline of the panels. It kinda makes it stand out and not so boring. By the way, whoever is in charge of America's designs are doing a great job. All in all, the book is very vibrant, but easy on the eyes. Read Full Review

    The only thing that could be construed as a downside is that very little really happens in this issue other than setting up new story lines for the future. This book is the perfect jumping on point new readers to the series and may even get you to buy the previous books after reading it just like I did. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon May 12, 2016

    We've seen the science team that can do the impossible still fail, and how that is effecting them as a unit, and soon individually as well. This is a book for those that question the "why" of the universe and like to explore. Ewing and Rocafort keep putting their best work forward with this series. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 11, 2016

    Ultimates #7 while takes some time to set up for Civil War, is an excellent issue for the focus on diplomacy and choice in what must be done to make sure the things they witnessed don't come to light. They may not have seen exactly what they were looking for, though they saw enough to justify this fallout. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt May 12, 2016

    This issue is the closest this book has felt to a "traditional superhero story", but even so - the big ideas are still there. Better yet, it gives Al Ewing and Kenneth Rocafort a chance to show off their knack for character. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Sankalp G. Jul 21, 2016

    The Ultimates, as a reader mentioned in the fan letters, are filling the void left by the FF and they are the only series where changes are acceptable and have some logic and and not forced. Having said that, after this Civil War arc, Ewing should get back to cosmic stories because this is where this comic really shines. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma May 19, 2016

    With the first arc steeped in the adventurous 'Super Science' tradition of the Fantastic Four, The Ultimates #7 effectively adds 'Super-Politics' to its resume, providing a simple but tense series of obstacles for the shaken team as they move forward into the unknown. The Ultimates #7 is not a must buy, especially compared to its predecessor, but it is a fantastic jumping on point for the series. Full of fascinating character moments and clever visual storytelling, this issue makes me feel very secure about this book's future, the role that "Civil War II" will have on it, and vice-a-versa.
