I would say the sensible thing to do would be ask Wyokid his opinion and then do the opposite
I would go through them all from the start. Millar/Bendis/BKV were excellent, Kirkman was the surprising low point, a lot of people weren't big fans of Coliete but I think his short run is pretty good and tarnished by coming between Kirkman and Ultimatum. Ultimate X is probably the best thing Loeb did in the UU and then you are on to the excellent Spencer run. You should get the trades, it will be a fun read
i have read all of the ultimate x-men, and most of them were pretty good. haven't had a chance to read ultimate comics x-men and i have doubts about it. is it worth reading? don't want to ruin my ultimate x-men experience.
If your a fan of Kitty, Bobby, Rogue or Johnny then... HELL YEAH!!
If not, I'd still check it out to make your own mind up
It's been really well written so far but kind of all over the place. Brian Wood is taking over from #13 with arcs tightly focused on the group I just mentioned (plus Jimmy Hudson).
ULTIMATE COMICS ~ DC DARK ~ BUFFY/ANGEL ~ GREEN ARROW ~BATMAN/BATWOMAN ~ THE MASSIVE ~ PLUS LOTS OF IMAGE
if i remember corectly, wolverine had a son, didn't he? the comic was called ultimate x or something. also, i saw a cover of the ultimate comics x-men that included a guy in a "1974 wolverine whiskers costume". was that maybe that guy?
