    Hello again, Phelpzy. I'd say: Definetly.

    I'd say at least check out UC: X-Men. Brian Wood has written some incredible, sensational, LIBERATING stuff with it so far. Many fans believe it to be Marvel's best mutant book, and by a fair stretch too.

    Ultimate X-Men is amazing fact.

    Ultimates has been okay as of late. But it is, what it is, and the upcoming story arc looks fun.

    Ultimate Spider-Man #16.1 is amazing. And I have found USM fun from its start to the current issues. So if you have enjoyed the current volume its still as good as its been, so if you've liked all the issues thus far, then jump back on. But if you have not liked this current volume at all, you most likely won't still like it.

    Anyway I say if you can only pick one of the three books go for Ultimate X-Men as I've said above its amazing. I myself love the art and the writing is great. If you can, I say pick up Ultimate Spider-Man again. Starting with #16.1 and maybe jump on, on next issue again.

    If you are willing to wait I know Marvel is releasing the complete DWF, UWS in a single hard cover which has
    Ultimate Comics X-Men 13-18, Ultimate Comics Ultimates 13-18, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man (2011) 13-17

    Amazon has it for $22.60 which is cheaper than if you go through comixolgie or ebay.
    Here is the link; http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Comic...nited+we+stand
    Pull: Avengers, New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Captain America, Superior Spider-Man, Superior S.M.T.U, Ultimate Universe, Chew, Invincible, Batman & Smallville.

    60 bucks?! That's like 45 quid! That's cheap as chips.

    Ultimates is....well, there's room for improvement. And I think that's going to happen. But it's worth a look. Ultimate comic X Men is the best X book around, even if it does have bloody Iceman front and centre! I don't read Spiderman so I can't comment on that, but the other two are worth picking up.

    Yes.

    I just got back into them myself with Divided We Fall and have enjoyed them very much. I also went back and got quite a bit of the back issues following Ultimatum and have really gotten back into the UU.

    It's funny I got back into the Ultimate titles because I wanted to cut my spending cost and figured it was 3 (4 when they run things like Ultimate Comics Iron Man) titles that fit together in a nice package.

    I also am returning to ultimate comics. I stopped reading at the end of of the original ultimate spidey. Just picked up ultimatium, still have to pick up the death of spiderman and the new black guy. Forgot how much I enjoyed Ultimate Spiderman till I started rereading the old series.

    If money's a concern, don't sweat it; everything here is being collected in nice hardcovers and TPBs, and they're not gonna disappear overnight.

    Absolutely - Wood's X universe is miles better than the 616 U these days. Ultimates is....hit and miss, but I think it has potential. Limiting the cast to just 3 is a bit of a mistake. I don't read Spiderman so I can't say anything on that.

    You'll get a wide range of opinions on this message board. Most who post in the Ultimate board will tell you Ultimate is awesome so you're going to get a very bias answer. At the end of the day, I recommend you just get a couple issues and if you like them go ahead and pick up the trades.

    Personally, I've always found the ultimate line to be hit or miss. I feel like it really stumbled through ultimatum, and hasn't quite been able to get it's act together since. USM was the highlight for me, and I'm actually looking to get back into it, but I feel like getting into the whole thing as a line ends up being too costly for too little quality.

    Honestly, Ultimatum put such a bad taste in mouth, I still taste crap nuggets when I pick up an Ultimate book. I would probably would pick up all three, if they went down to 2.99. Marvel seems to have put the whole line on the back burner.This is definitely no longer the gold standard.
