    The colouring is so beautiful. The actual art is take or leave.

    Writing is ok, but it's no Millar :(

    Yeah, good luck with that.

    I'm personally not liking all of the changes that are happening to the Ultimates with this series. The old saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," should have been applied. That said, there is one question that I'd love to have an answer to about this new direction...

    ...how is that elbow pad attached to Hawkeye's arm? Seriously, there's no straps. It looks as if it's glued on.

    I liked Ultimates 1 and 2 because they were very much superheroes in the real world (with spaceships and ray guns, but still recognisably real world). I'm enjoying Ultimates 3, but it's not real world anymore. Characters have been changed with little reason for it other than to make it more "comicy", uniforms are more comicy, story is more comicy.

    It's a different comic entirely, so why bother calling it Ultimates?

    This is exactly how I feel.

    I dropped this after the first issue. Venom = the ridiculousness.

    Same here man, same here. The dialogue continues to be horrible and"typical" comic dialogue. Its great that Loeb is not trying to mimic Millar(which he would be bad at), but he is dumbing down the ultimates, not maintaining the serious tone it had. Its good to go your own way and not put your feet in shoes that don't fit, but if something is serious, let it stay serious.

    The plot is too damn predictable too. Let me guess, Hawkeye has some cathartic release later, and him and Wolverine become buddies. Wolverine has an epiphany of losing Scarlet Witch and still tries to get with her only to see her really die later.

    So far, Ultimates V3 has been pretty much stereotypical drivel. There seems to be just about nothing of what made the first 2 volumes worth reading; the interaction with the characters is sorely lacking, and the art is frankly awful. It's becoming just another bog standard Marvel comic, and it was SO damn good. Such a shame.

    It is very dissapointing, Ultimates used to make for a good read that was above 616 stuff, and now, the stuff Loeb is writing seems at home with 616 and out of place in Ultimates. The art has issues, like the bad decision to skip inking and color over the pencils, but the writing is what suffers terribly here. The artwork might capture the teens who know Joe Mad's work from PSM covers, but its still a bad book when its all said and done. Here's to hoping Hitch and Millar snatch this title back after they complete their F4 run(which is off to a good start btw).

    Ehhhh. I'm willing to give it a try. Ultimates V3 has been alright, but this version of Hawkeye reminds me a LOT of Heroes Reborn Hawkeye... and guess what? Loeb wrote a lot of Heroes Reborn Avengers didn't he? Hmm.

    Now I've made that connection I feel scared.

    I'm just annoyed that Thor went from having the toughest-looking war hammer around to quietly replacing it with the caveman-gavel that is his 616 hammer. All this without any explanation at all. One would THINK that drastically replacing something as arcane and powerful might warrant SOME kind of explanation.
