    You are probably right there

    though Fraction has written some stuff I really, really don't like

    Fear Itself wasn't offensively bad, like some of Johns' shock violence stuff

    but it was kind of crap

    the thing is I am not judging the quality of their writing

    but the fact, when push comes to shove, make them in charge of a company's direction/flagship title and it is without a doubt their worst material, if not offensively shit.

    see:

    uncanny x-men
    blackest night
    deadly genesis
    infinite crisis
    nu52 justice league
    secret invasion
    fear itself
    bendis avengers in general
    aVx

    Deadly Genesis is awful but the rest of both Fraction and Brubaker's UXM was pretty good haters gonna hate on X-Men

    Ha, I was just coming here to say how awesome it is that they have this sale, as I been thinking about getting Ult. Spidey. What about X-men? Is that not worth getting?

    I never used to like the X-Men

    but now I do and read more X-men comics per month than I do Avengers comics

    crazy times, huh

  • BrainleechBrainleech Registered User regular
    There was a time I liked the X men but then the whole Mutant rights bull came into play and I really lost interest
    I do have an interest in avengers but I really don't want to go down that route again
    It was about the same time I started to like the offbeat and dark comics

    Is it weird that I want to see the Ultimate Defenders again? There's a good chance they're powerless again but I wouldn't mind seeing them used in a sort of Thunderbolts role. That and maybe see if some of the Ultimate versions of the original members join up too like Hulk and Namor.

    Spider-Men #4:
    Spoiler:

    And if they're so big on continuity, Tony's armor in this is not his current Ultimate's armor. Which puts this before the current Ultimates arc. Actually, assuming continuity, Fury being there puts it before the first Ultimates arc.

    Is Spider-Man #4 as much as a tear jerker as I'm thinking it is?

    Crappy connection at new worksite means I won't read it till the afternoon.

    I admit I read the section over three or four times.

    I really want Miles to become a part of the extended Parker family, because I love the extended Parker family.

    Completely forgot about the the Marvel's comic site isn't blocked at worked.

    Nice issue of Spider-Men 4. As usual with Bendis, it's the small moments that really work perfectly.

    In the middle actually. There is a lot of "downtime" in that story and we see Spider-woman discover MIles in Ultimates.

    I think wait for the last issue , and then complain about Bendis' lack of love for continuity

    Spider-Men #4, such a great issue and was exactly what I wanted to see when the crossover was announced. My only very minor complaint is, what is up with the cover! It has literally zero to do with the issue heh.

    Actually you're incorrect about that.
    SW finds out about Miles in issue five. Fury talks to the president and then sends Falcon into the City. he doesn't leave for a few issues.

    So maybe we should just have a little faith eh?

    Its looking like the only problem is going to be the "Uncle? but you're..." which is small and ignorable.

    Really? That dude between Miles and Peter looks like someone I should recognize, as least.

    Not that I'm aware of at least.

    He looks like Hawkeye but then I think the guy beside him is Hawkeye?


    I really want Peter to ask Thor where his cape is. It is the stupidest thing to ask Thor about.

    Are they going into space? You can feeeeel the slow motion determination walk.

    Also, that's a pretty cool cover.

    Man I just got Ultimate Doomsday today. I had no idea it took place during the time where aunt may was running the superhero half-way house. Just this week I was re-reading the later Ultimate Peter stories and was really bummed that I couldn't get more Peter/Johnny/Bobby shenanigans. I am so happy.

    Finally got the first volumes of Spider-man and Ultimates today on Amazon. I'll get X-men in October when it comes out in trade format. Probably won't bother with the Hawkeye mini.

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    Why wouldn't you?

    It is basically .5 issues for the first arc of Ultimates and is also written by Hickman and sets up stuff that is going to come up in Ultimates and UXM in the coming months

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    Well Amazon has the trade for nearly 50% off so I might pick it up.

    Also I might sell off all my Ultimate Comics issues right up to Death of Spider-man so I can replace them with the Omnibus editions.
