New Series Spotlight: Ultimate Comics X

Ultimate Comics X #1

In the wake of the Ultimatum series, Marvel's Ultimate Universe is in disarray. Most of the X-Men - including Wolverine - are dead. Captain America is a fugitive. The Fantastic Four have disbanded. So who - or what - is Ultimate X?

The bigshots at Marvel have been taking some gutsy chances with their Ultimate titles over the last year, and Ultimate X is the latest application of the new formula -- surprise the reader, turn things on their head, take some chances. With that kind of mission statement, it's a safe bet that wherever the all-star creative team of Jeph Loeb (Batman, Hulk) and Art Adams (X-Men) decide to take this ongoing bi-monthly series, the ride will be one worth taking. Highly recommended!
