Re: Ultimate Solictation for November

I can't wait to see how Kirkman handles Cable/Bishop. USM doesn't sound too bad, either.
Ultimate Power/UFF look alright, and I don't think I'll pick up Ultimate Vision.

"These Ultimate Vision back-ups will not be collected again!"

Looks like they have been.

Ultimate Bishop has already been introduced... is this going to create another continuity error?

Spider-Man's being hunted by SHIELD. Yawn.

Ultimate Power doesn't look like anything special.

Not really interested in Carey's UFF, but I'll see what happens.

In defense of that, a mutant named Bishop has been refered to, but thats about it. He hasn't become a proper character yet.

Also, future Bishop could be the same person as the Bishop that was mentioned in Bendis' run.

Anyways. . .

UFF - I'm really looking foward to this. It looks really good. Love the art, too.

USM - The Clone Saga has, so far, been quite good and I hope that trend continues. This issue looks quite good as well.

UP - Could be good, or it could suck. We'll see.

UV - Wow. . .who didn't see this comming? I'll probably wait for the trade.

UXM - Bishop, huh? I guess it was inevitble. I'm willing to give Kirkman the benefit of the doubt and say I'm cautiously optimistic about this. We'll see how it goes.

And, again, no Ultimates. *sigh*

Re: Ultimate Solictation for November

I'm willing to forgive Kirkman for the Ultimate Bishop mess... Bendis threw Bishop into the mix for virtually no more reason than to get a rise out of people. That's not how we should be treating characters, really. So, if Kirkman's got a better idea than that... I say let him at it. :)

Did anyone else notice the UFF have new costumes? Pretty cool.

USM should be interesting... I don't know whether to say that sounds good or bad.

Yeah, it looks like Reed has a utility belt. But, they are traveling in an alternate universe, so its probably a good idea.

As for USM. . .the current arc feels more like the original few arcs. There's just something about it with all the genetic stuff that really makes it feel like the arcs up until Venom. I'm hoping that Bendis really was jsut wasting time until he could bring us the Clone Saga so we'll start to see some good stories again.

Re: Ultimate Solictation for November

I'm getting everything except for Ultimate Vision #0. When it comes out, I'll just reread the 6 four-paged stories.

Re: Ultimate Solictation for November

Ultimate Fantastic Four #36 - Yawn...

Ultimate Power #2 - Why is this still coming out?

Ultimate Spider-Man #102 - MJ turns into... WTF!!!!? :furious:

Ultimate Vision #0 - Vision's still a chick. But if this collects what we saw in the Ultimate titles earlier than I'm all for it because it was a good story.

Ultimate X-Men #76 - Finally something that sounds actually good. But why the hell are you ****ing with Bishop when he was introduced already. I just hope they tie him in with the young guy from New Mutants. It wouldn't be hard to do. But UXM I think will be the best and possibly only satisfying Ultimate Read this month.

Re: Ultimate Solictation for November

Ultimate Fantastic Four #36 - I like the art. I really do. But I'm still undecided on whether or not to be excited about Carey. I read the annual.....not really impressed.

Ultimate Power #2 - I'll check it out but since I don't follow the Supremverse, I can't be too excited.

Ultimate Spider-Man #102 - MJ changing into something??? WTF??? Bendis/Bagley make me wanna throw up all over my keyboard. I'm so bored with them. If the book hasn't jumped the shark already....it's about to.

Ultimate Vision #0 - Meh......

Ultimate X-Men #76 - More Kirkman means I even though I this hasn't come out yet....I can already give it 2 thumbs down.




The UU is getting old........real quick. The only 2 viable titles at the moment are Ultimates and UFF...............and even UFF is changing teams now so who knows. Thank God I discovered Vertigo and Wildstorm.

Re: Ultimate Solictation for November

Kirkman said on his site that Bishop is the Bishop ex-criminal from New Mutants. It'll tie in.

UU is still...ok.

UFF is changing teams and I'm willing to follow it and see if the new team can live up to Millar/Land's run.

Ultimates 3...that I can't be too happy with. Loeb and Mad...with that cover of Panther punching Venom...it's like I woke up and Image was back on top of the world and it was the 90s. I'm not liking it, but I haven't read it yet...so I'll wait and judge later.

Ultimate X-Men, I'll give Kirkman this one last arc to prove something to me. He might kick *** now that Magician's gone.

USM I stopped reading that after DeadPool. Heard I didn't miss much in Morbeus and Clone Saga might turn MJ into a superhero. I said it early and you people jumped my case. Bendis just might do it.

You are all just obstacles on my path to Nirvana.
Hmmmm....nothing really impressive.

EDIT: By the way, is Ultimate X-Men #76 confirmed for November (meaning no delays)? I ask because I noticed it isn't listed on Marvel's website for that month, or any other at this time. Could just be a mistake. Just wondering.
