Until all are one!
Ultimate Team-up trade Any good?
I saw this trade at my local LCS, Ultimate Team-Up collection.
Anyone have this? How are the stories and more importantly the art?
Until all are one!
so noone had read any of these?
It's hit or miss, depending on your tastes. I love the Spidey/FF team-up by Bendis & Mahfood. Funny stuff.
Personally I would'nt buy it cause it feels meh. Would recommend instead to read it at your local borders store. The only good story in the book I've liked was Spider-man, Daredevil, and Punisher team up. Tells a great Frank casle background story.
For continuity's sake, read the one where spidey meet's the Hulk, as well as Black widow (in Ult X-men he bitches at her for stealing his web cadridges)
loves meter maids
The series ranges from forgettable to awful.
Until all are one!
thanks, youve saved me $30.
It's a little bit hit and miss, but there are highlights, and the majority of the stories are pretty good.
Ultimate Marvel Team Up #6-8: The Ultimate Punisher with art by Bill Sienkiewicz. Perhaps the best Punisher story ever (and one of the best Daredevil tales). Just an increndible tale of revenge, and redemption.
Ultimate Marvel Team Up #9-11: A three issue run of great single part stories. The introduction of the Ultimate Lizard improves on his origin. The now out of continuity Fantastic Four VS Skrulls tale was just hilarious, as is the tale of Peter's friends meeting the X-Men at a mall.
Ultimate Marvel Team Up #14: A Spider-Man/ Black Widow team-up which leads into, and features Bendis's first collaboration with Frank Cho.
Ultimate Spider-Man Super-Special: Ties up the series, as Peter reflects on the question of who his hero is. 64 pages of gorgeous art by the industry's finest.
The weaker stories (the Shang-Chi two parter, and the Hulk two parter) contain strong moments, and are satisfying as part of a strong anthology. Plus, at $30 the anthology is worth it just for the above issues, all of which I'd give 9/10 or 10/10.
I you want more reviews, I recommend checking out the Fourth Rail, spiderfan.org, and http://www.silverbulletcomicbooks.com/reviews/u.htm.

I was also looking at buying this so thanks for the info. I might have to just read it at the Barnes and Noble.

seriously, some of the stuff in there is frame-worthy, which is something because i think as a title, ultimate spider-man often sufffers from having less than great artists.
This book is great. I wrote the review on the Amazon page "Precious Lamb." Must own for ultimate Marvel fans.
Other than the Spider-Man, Punisher & Daredevil Team-Up issues, I hated most of it... Better just get those issues.
it really depends on ur taste
if ur looking for a good ultimate title then no cause some of it does not fit in
if ur just look ofr a good story then ill just buy the good storiesi n issue or the oens that intrest you
Huh - I didn't realize the book was so hated.
Personally, I liked it. There were a couple of throw away issues IMO ľ but I could say the same thing about a couple of USM arcs.
I'd pick it up - especially if you can get it on sale. (amazon.com has it for $20)
I've had multiple chances to pick the tpb up at my LCS, but each time I've declined.
The majority of the art in it is just too off-putting for me.
The team-ups look very interesting though.
That's one of the things I liked about the series - they used a different (usually good) artist for each story arc.
