    Has anyone else checked this series out? Thoughts?

    I picked issue one up on Free Comic Book day this year, pretty much just on a whim and the strength of the cover. Plus anything that involves Galactus is usually worth checking out, in my opinion. I absolutely love the art, and the concept of the team is great.

    But like most current Marvel series I have tried to read, I got about 10 issues in, and it started getting crazy with the crossover stories. I guess it is tied in to the Civil War 2 stuff, but I had trouble following some of what was going on.

    I'd like the keep reading it, but I don't want to dive too deep into all the other Marvel titles involved in the Civil War 2 crossover. These days, I am mostly interested in the Marvel Cosmic stories

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a abbreviated reading order, that mostly involves the Ultimates core team members and just the best parts of the crossovers so I know what's going on?

    Liked it, dropped it during Civil War 2 like all the other Marvel stuff I was getting. Hate the fact every single book gets completely derailed during their events, I just want to pick up one book and maybe the occasional crossover with another singular book.

    Captain Marvel played a huge part in Civil War II so yea, I imagine you'd need to read pretty much everything.

    Dang. I'm not against eventually reading the whole Civil War 2 arc, but there is just a whole lot of older stuff that I am trying to catch up on first.

    I guess I might just have to wait and circle back to The Ultimates in a couple years, when I have time to read all the crossover stuff in order.

    I've been out of the Ultimates since Ultimatum. Are they in the 616 universe now?

    I wish. Nothing is left of the Ultimate universe except Miles, Evil Reed, and Thor's hammer.
