    The best of the best when it comes to super-heroics, and I've not just saying this to get myself quoted in the house ads. This truly is the comic that has captured the blockbuster feel that I wish all comics would strive for, but unlike most summer films, this book is also populated by a fully developed cast of characters who are absolutely fascinating. These are characters who have been tossed into the role of a super-hero, but they lack the sense of righteousness & self sacrifice that has long been a staple of the super-hero archetype. In fact what makes these character so much fun is that their unheroic tendencies will have them veering off in unexpected directions, and it doesn't hurt that Mark Millar is a masterful storyteller when it comes to thinking big.

    Millar closes this issue with about as monumental a cliffhanger as I could possibly imagine. I can't imagine how he's going to weasel out of this one. Perhaps we'll know by the 4th of July. Sorry, cheap dig there. I hate the long wait between issues. But the quality is so good that it you have to respect the delays. I honestly believe that this is one of the great runs in the long history of Marvel comics, however it comes out. The Ultimates is truly the smartest and most compelling super-hero comic on the shelves. Read Full Review

    This is certainly a title that belongs in the Ultimate line, as its quality is consistent with its fellow members. The engaging story and inventive developments thus far have only done wonders for the book; one hopes Mark Millar will execute the team's adventures in a way consistent with how he formed it. Not a bad $2.25, compared to some other titles this week. Read Full Review
