Look At The Ultimates #6
Comic-Con, Kurt Busiek revealed that one of his reasons for
leaving The Avengers (besides having little left to say about
the characters -- for now) was his feeling that The Ultimates
was somehow competition. Granted, there have been rumors of
an Ultimazation of the Marvel Universe, but both books have
their strengths, especially with the eager anticipation of
Geoff Johns coming on The Avengers.
I didn't get around to reviewing it, The Ultimates #5 rocked.
From The Hulk's motivation (destroy Freddie Prinze, Jr.) to
Captain America's disdainful kick to Banner's head, Millar
and Hitch proved that this isn't just another Avengers.
John Ney Rieber and Mark Millar, we're also seeing a Captain
America that makes more sense as a soldier and a man without
losing the things that make the Star-Spangled Avenger a worthy
icon for the Marvel Universe.
not a competition, but Millar and Hitch have consistently
delivered a solid and somewhat thought-provoking book. Our
Man@Marvel, Bill Rosemann, promises that this week will be
no different. And look, kids, it's ON TIME!
From Bill Rosemann:
The Hulk's rampage through Times Square is over. But that doesn't mean that
victory comes free of consequences... or that suffering remains on the
battlefield. Just take a look at the opening pages of THE ULTIMATES #6 and
you'll see that -- in this series -- violence has its repercussions. And
when you read the entire issue on August 14th you'll also learn that Mark
Millar and Bryan Hitch have some painful plans for America's newest strike
