First off, I'm a fan of the "Ultimate" series. I've read my share of the older comics, but trying to get hold of them all (which is exactly what someone as obsessive as I am wants to do) would be basically nigh on impossible. C'est la vie. The Ultimate collection basically starts from scratch, and gives you whole plotlines with beloved characters (though sometimes drastically changed).

This collection contains Ultimate Spider-Man issues 97 to 105. It's essentially the Ultimate imprint's stab at what I have been informed was possibly the most roundly despised event in Original Spider-Man continuity, the "Clone Saga".

The artwork, as expected of both Marvel and the Ultimate imprint, is gorgeous. Mark Bagley's illustrations still look fantastic. The only thing I could (or would dare) take issue with is some of the layout for panels, though frankly, that's only my tidy mind which automatically attempts to read pages a certain way, and I doubt it would have looked as good in any other layout.

What I would take some issue with is the pacing. This volume is fairly large, and a fair few characters are introduced, and die off, at breakneck pace, with mostly no attempt to engage the reader with them, and little in the way of deep characterisation. One seems to simply be there to die at the appropriate moment. I don't object to this massively you understand, death is very much a part of these comics. But when you fail to register any emotion at a white hat character's death, you should really start thinking why.

The events seemed to unfold so quickly that I felt a little overwhelmed. Please don't get me wrong, it's easy enough to follow the events, it's just that there is little emotional hit from the work at all.

Now we all know the original Clone Sage was pure evil, right?

I was very wary about this volume. I've been reading Ultimate Spidey since day one and cannot put into words how amazing it's been. And now I feel guilty for doubting Bendis - this volume is fantastic. Now I should point out that this will certainly NOT appeal to everyone. There are new characters introduced at breakneck pace, and the original Marvel universe simply gets thrown out the window - you need to approach this with an open mind.

Some will love it, some will hate it. Personally, I think it goes to show how Bendis and Bagley are the best team to ever work on Spider-Man - and I don't say that lightly.

I'm the first to admit that being a fan this review might sound a little bias, so I encourage you to read some other reviews first!

I've always been a fan of spiderman and I've been buying graphic novels for a while now, When I saw Ultimate Spiderman: Clone Saga in Waterstones I was intrigued. I had never read any of the Ultimate Spiderman comics or novels before and after reading it 17 times in one day I think I can safely say that I'm hooked! A quality read! It would be a crime not to buy it!
