    Didn't see a thread in here about the series.

    Big fan of Jeph Loeb and love Joe Madureira's art.

    Story's a little wierd for me. I've read #1 and #2. Art is beautiful as usual.

    But what's up with the incest?

    It's hot. That's what's up with it!

    Seriously, it's an awful series thus far. I hate the extreme characterization in it so far. The art looks like it was great in pencils, but the inking is awful.

    Makes me a sad panada

    Iv'e found the series brutal. Poor characterization. Poor use of the artist. Poor release times.

    The only thing memorable so far to me was Quicksliver trying to catch a bullet.

    This series is nothing compared to volumes 1&2.
    NOTHING.

    Damn, now I don't think I'll be picking up U3. Love the U 1 & 2 even though the story can be weird at times.

    Came to post this.

    Sorry, but I think Loeb should have maybe considered building on what came before him (which was fuck awesome) and go from there rather than making it simply an "edgier" version of a kids book. I'm sure I would have loved it if I was 12, but... it's coming across as lame as hell.

    Draven and TT are on it. 1 & 2 were absolutely outstanding.

    I bought the first issue of 3 and wanted my twenty minutes back.

    I need to go back and read it again, but it really has no patch on the first 2 volumes.

    I disliked this one as soon as I saw Thor. Why does Marvel insist on making the Ultimate universe more and more like 616?

    theyll run it into the ground and still never finish hulk vs wolverine....

    and it only took them like a year to get issues of 2 out, to me its one of the best books that they dropped the ball on several times

    There's gonna be a 4?!?! Nooooooooooo! Ultimates 1 & 2 = The Badass, but Ultimates 3 (and presumably 4) = The Suck. Both the story and art on 4 were/are horrific! Makes me a sad panda too... :(  *sigh*

    Ultimates 3 #5 is last issue :/

    Guess theyre gonna cornhole the Ultimate universe with Ultimatum like they did the 616 with Brand New Day, the end of Civil War, Death of Cap, and the Secret Invasion. It was weird tho, i had a subscription to Ultimates and got the last of my issues this month and there was a letter in it saying it was the LAST issue and all subs were being transferred to New Avengers...which id already bought and now have two even tho i had 0 issues left (shrug) Hard for me to understand tho, IMO this is one of THE best books of this day and theyve neglected it, postponed it, and now running it into the ground too?

    They put it on hold because of Ultimatium and McGuinness being on Hulk. At Baltimore they announced that it's still proceeding but with Frank Cho on art instead.

    So Ultimates 3 dies after issue 5... I don't mind having a New Avengers sub out of it... interesting. Ul3 has been pretty god-awful and a total mess. Ul1 and 2 left some pretty big shoes tho.
