  • Great show you guys. Just out of curiosity, why do none of you ever talk about The Ultimates? Besides Daredevil, it's easily the best title being published right now. I've been reading comics for the better part of two decades, and I've never read anything quite like it.

    Interested in hearing your take on The Ultimates; keep up the good work guys.

  • We love the Ultimates! In fact I just picked up the hardcover edition of the first series. I'm waiting for the hardcover version of the second series which is why I haven't been picking up the current issues. We will gladly discuss the Ultimates in our next recording.

    Glad you enjoy the show, please keep listening.

  • Kind of similar to Bryan here. I read the first 6 issues of Ultimates vol.1 but once it started to hit a snag in scheduling, I decided to stop reading the single issues and instead picked up the HC. I'm also waiting for volume two's HC.

    Guess this means I have to actually READ the HC by next Podcast hmm? haha.

    I can say this about the issues I read: I feel that the Ultimates is the zenith of the "widescreen" comicbooks. What started with Morrison's JLA (in terms of scope of storytelling) and Authority (with Hitch's widescreen art approach and Ellis' quick-cut writing), Ultimates is clearly the "perfection" of that style. The only problem with that is twofold: If Millar and Hitch ever leave Ultimates, will it (CAN it) continue. Also, with it being the "zenith" in my opinion of that style of comics, where is the next NEW approach going to come from?

    Just my .04 cents.
