    Yesturday I picked up TPBs 1-6 of Ultimate X-men, I had read vol 1 a while back, but since the bookstore had the first 6 I went ahead and snagged them all. They had 8 and 9 too, but I didnt get them because they didnt have 7. Im interested to know what the high and low points of the series are, and how many volumes I am missing.

    I have all of them and I there are only a few I don't like. I hate Chris Bachalo. You think Jae Lee is bad for "Ultimate"...... But his pencils were decent in Ultimate War. I loved Iceman in that one.

    I didn't care for "The Most Dangerous Game" either. The story and art were blah.

    The later ones with David Finch are great too.

    My personal fave is Cry Wolf. Awesome art and great characterization! :rock

    The entire series is good. Not as good as the other Ultimate books but close.

    It was a good book, but I dropped it after Cry Wolf.
    Its just becoming a case of 'How many 616 x-characters can we cram into this book?'

    That's funny. I need volumes 1-6 and have every issue after that.

    i liked 'Blockbuster' best (but it's basically an 'Ultimate Spiderman team-up'), but thought they did some great wolverine work in there...

    me 2. i dropped it right in the middle of Dangerous game.

    I love Runaways, but BKVs writing on UXM has been pretty bad IMO.
