  1. I don’t care how long it takes, this book is worth it.

  2. …Really? Lets see how long since the last issue….

    Jun 16, 2010

  3. I will wait for Arthur Adams for as long as it takes.


  5. Oh wow.

  6. The only thing in the world that can make actually pay money for an Ultimate book with the name Jeph Loeb on it is Arthur Adams. Good lord his panels literally take my breath away.

  7. Yes Yes Yes! It’s finally coming out. Hooray!

  8. “The Ultimate Universes most talked about series”, huh?

  9. Wow. I had completely forgotten about this.

  10. Art Adams awesomeness FTW!!!
    I’m actually really digging the writing on this too 🙂 

  11. New Utlimates was terrible, even with A+ level art.  We’ll see how this turns out in time.

  12. Wow this trade wait’s been hell!

  13. What I don’t understand is why not solicit the book when 45ths of it is done?! Nearly a year between issues – no matter how pretty – is something that should be tolerated.

  14. *not be

  15. I know that I definitely Art Adams to do all of the issues, but I just wish that I would’ve waited for the trade to read this.  If I’m going to have to wait for this beautiful art, I’d just rather have it all at once. 

  16. @RahUniQue  because it had to come out when the Ultimatum thing ended. It was part of that whole revamp thing. who cares though? it started back then. it’s continuing now. whatever 

  17. Take a look guys. Art Adams is not the only one doing the art on this issue. Mark Roslan is also apart of this. I don’t know what to think of this. I am happy that it is coming out, but I would have also waited a little longer for Art Adams to do the whole issue. I will wait to read it before I pass judgement on having two people work on the art.

  18. @SamIAm
    Roslan has been the inker on the previous 3 issues. I asume that’s the reason why he is credited here.

  19. I wonder what they’re going to do with this series after the next issue. It seems like their building towards it.

  20. This book was beautiful no douibt art is absolutley amazing on every iussue however i’m having a massive problem with the whole point of this series. For those that know me also know i’m not a fan of Jeph Loeb mainly because of how he handled ultimatium but also because I think is character dialouge is so bad it makes my eyes bleed. Anyway so setting aside my upfront bias against loeb in general let’s assume everything in ultimatium was necessary by killing off basiclly all the x-men. So with that in mind shouldnt the point of this be to take the line in a new direction with unique characters. Instead this book seems to only serve as giving us watered down versions of our old favorite x-men. Seriously all we’ve got from this is confused jean grey, insecure Wolverine (with retard claws that make no sense), ghetto Angel, and now puberty Blob. So why the hell kill off the real version of these characters just to replace them with younger & less interesting replicas of the same characters?!?! I’m giving this series one more issue and hope somehow it pulls this mess together.

  21. @thompsonlive: If you’re giving this series one more issue, I guess we’ll continue this discussion in January 2012. 😛 8) 😀

  22. @thompsonlive  basically, superheroes are architypes, not clearly defined 3 dimensional portraits. I don’t think it really matters who acts out the part as long as the architypes are part of teh story. you even said they’re “replicas of the same characters”

    And i hate Loeb too but at least this is something new. he’s doing what is meant to be done with the ultimate universe
