This is a story that will have long-lasting ramifications, not only for our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, but for… well, THAT would be telling!

Darn it you beat me again. :furious:

But on other hands this looks really good. The artwork I think it's better than Bagley but still has the same feel.

you just beat me to this....but i dont think its her, it could be, either way, some pages look skipped, obviously to avoid spoiling the girlfriend ordeal....Good stuff though. I never thought i could read ult spidey without bagleys artwork, but some artists can do the job, brooks showed he could hold his own.

No, that pretty much looks like it's Ultimate Arana. The face, the way she talks, her fathers face....it's definetly here. Arana has been Ultimized! :D

That cant be. This is her first time in UU, so that already rules her out.

Goody, more Ultimate Rhino :D I am a sucker for the old faves, and Rhino was one that I liked as a kid. And has that nice cool Jack from Tekken look too. But, doomed to be incidental I'm sure.

And the art, I much prefer it to Bagley's, though still not ideal, it's a step up.

Interesting plot development

Rhino looks much different than before.

Spidey is still one wise cracking mofo

What do you mean? Ultimate Rhino has only shown up once before in USM #28 (if i recall correctly) and he looked almost identical. I think the only difference is the artists' different styles. Speaking of which, I'm really loving Brook's art.

If that really is Ultiamte Arana, Bendis would get on my good side again.
