    Not according to solicits for USM.

    Yeah, USM 129 pretty much occurs right before Ultimatum 1.

    By the way, since it's called Ultimatum... shouldn't there have been some kind of... I dunno... ultimatum?

    So where have the intervening 3 years or whatever gone? Are we just ignoring that Ultimates 2 happened a year after Ultimates 1?

    I don't think Jephy actually knows what Ultimatum means.

    I dunno... I don't follow the Ultimates past the trades for 1 and 2. I know the USM timeline just went wonky, with them basically retelling the events of the Ultimate Spider-Man video game, then
    having gwen show up when she actually escaped during the Green Goblin fight
    so I have no clue what is occurring when.

    I'm sort of curious, why did so many of you pick up Ultimatum? Loeb has been a terrible writer for a long time now, and by purchasing his crap you're just encouraging Marvel to put him on more stuff. I mean, it's obviously your money and you're allowed to spend it on whatever you want, but is this a series you really want to support?

    Reed really needs to be put on something else, because I can't stand his Ms. Marvel. I thought he was a middling writer, but apparently Ms. Marvel is just not a good match for him.

    Ms. Marvel. Spidey's cameo and he gets the last word.
    How exactly does he expect to go on a date with her?

    anywho....MOTW for me, buying every single Hellboy TPB (8) and thinking 'oh ho! tis reading will last me for my entire holidays'....cut to 14 hours later: I'm lying on the floor, there are books everywhere, my brain is engorged with awesome and i'm pretty sure I owe Mignola my first born.

    If you want another day of good reading, I highly recommend the Guy Davis-drawn TPBs of "BPRD". The first two volumes aren't bad either (especially the one with Ryan Sook on art), but the Mignola/Arcudi/Davis stuff is fantastic.

    Fair enough. Doesn't mean he'll ever do anything as good again, though.

    That comic is total bullshit. Like Santa couldn't handle the Infinity Gauntlet. Way to forget characterisation writers.

    'Ever' was a bit harsh, I admit. But honestly, some writers have a good run, but then lose whatever spark made it happen later on.

    NA was really good this week. Althought I still hate Tam's Jessica Jones, I mean she would never wear belly shirts, come on man.

    Ms Marvel this week was really fun. I am really enjoying Reed's run

    Nova was badass and probably my MotW.

    Ultimatum was just ok I didn't think it was all horrible, although the stuff with Cap and Thor was not good

    U. Spider-man continues to be awesome. Johnny and Spider-woman was pretty funny.
