Book Description

17 Jun 2009 Omnibus
Is even an Omnibus big enough to contain Millar and Hitch's widescreen super-hero epic?! They are the greatest heroes the world has ever known: Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Wasp, Giant Man, Hawkeye, the Black Widow, Quicksilver, and the Scarlet Witch! Brought together by Nick Fury, head of the elite espionage agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., the Ultimates are Earth's last line of defense against a rising storm of strange new threats to humanity - menaces such as the rampaging monster known as the Hulk, and an army of shape-shifting aliens bent on destroying the world and killing all humankind. But just as they begin to get comfortable in their roles as international celebrities and America's champions, things get hard! Can the Ultimates survive the Hulk's execution, Thor's imprisonment - and the advent of the Ultimate Defenders?! The world's greatest heroes are in for the battle of the century - and not all of them will be walking away! Collects Ultimates #1-13, Ultimates 2 #1-13, Ultimates Annual #1, and Ultimates 2 #1 Variant Sketch Edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimates Omnibus HC 2 Jun 2010
By TheBFG
Format:Hardcover
The Graphic Novel takes you on a wild and new adventure through the marvel universe, with the re-creation of the Avengers(or in the ultimates universe, The Ultimates)The Graphic novel has the usual favourite characters such as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Wasp and Giant man. The whole universe is brought a little bit closer to home, with more background story and issues for all the charcters. The Graphic Novel is jam-packed with action and story, which are all illustrated well with the artwork of Bryan Hitch. A very good read throughout with you getting to know the characters more and that theyy are not all perfect. By the looks of things, the Ultimates universe is what the movies seem to be heading for. Recommend purchasing this item, along with Ultimates 3. If you are new to comics and don't want to be left behind with story plots which happened years ago and want to go fresh. This is the best place to start. From it being the assembling of the ultimates and a new beginnig you would thouroghly enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing collection of work by some of comic's best 28 Jun 2009
By E. Blair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Can't say anything bad about this one. I loved the individual issues, I loved the smaller volumes 1 & 2, and I am totally floored by the quality of this huge omnibus. Marvel really does a great job on these; the binding is top-notch, the printing is exceptional, the materials are first rate. And, of course, this is Hitch and Millar doing what they do best: sweeping, cinematographic stories of epic proportions.

For the price, you can't beat this. Grab it while it's still in print, because it will surely go the way of others in its class and be hard to find at any price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 26 Jun 2009
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Proving that Marvel's Ultimate line was once a place for intriguing new takes on old concepts and characters, Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's run on The Ultimates saw the pair re-envisioning and re-imagining Marvel's classic Avengers lineup in a more realistic and modern world. Here we are introduced to Steve "Captain America" Rogers, the displaced hero of World War II; Tony "Iron Man" Stark, the brilliant, alcoholic, cancer-ridden eccentric who loves the ladies; Thor, the self-proclaimed Norse God of Thunder who may be the real deal, or may just be insane; Bruce "Hulk" Banner, the scientist whose work to create a new super soldier led to making himself a walking, anger-filled nightmare; Hank "Giant Man" Pym, a brilliant mind with a very short temper; Janet "Wasp" Pym, Hank's long-suffering wife who lives up to her name; and military man Nick Fury, who brings them all together. Later on after the introductory storyarc, the team is joined by Hawkeye, Black Widow, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch; but it is the sheer unpredictable nature of what happens as the stories develop that made The Ultimates so good. This Omnibus contains all 13 issues of the first Ultimates run, as well as all 13 of Ultimates 2, which remains one of the best mainstream superhero comics to ever see the light of day. Between Millar's twisty and compelling stories and Hitch's incredible artwork, The Ultimates is a masterpiece of comic storytelling. All in all, if you missed out at all on Millar and Hitch's original Ultimates (disregard Jeph Loeb's Ultimates 3 at all costs), you have been doing yourself quite the disservice, and you should definitely pick up this Omnibus to make it up to yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SUPERHERO GENRE AT ITS BEST!!! 6 Dec 2009
By Chris Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the book that you buy people who love superhero movies but don't read the comics.

There are few times in the world of art and entertainment when the forces of the universe collide to produce a piece of perfection. This is one of them. The Ultimates Omnibus is a little bit of heaven for anyone who enjoys the superhero genre. Miller's writing on this series is a perfect mix of dialogue-centered character pieces and amazing "widescreen" battles. Hitch's art gets better with every issue.

What you have in this omnibus is two "seasons" of The Ultimates. The first volume is essentially a modern retelling of the classic Avengers origin story. Without giving too much away, The team gets together, has a few bumps along the way, and then saves the Earth. Every issue has some great narrative moments but your jaw will continually drop in issues 12 & 13.

The second season is a little different - more for comics fans but also more social commentary. This series deals with ramifications from the first season and Miller is also able to craft an engaging allegory about US foreign policy.

The bottom line is that this may not be the headiest comic out there. It may not be the best drawn or colored (You won't find many better.), but what you have is all of the parts working together create one of the best pieces of art I've ever seen. This is an expensive book but the amazon discount makes it worth it. Give this as a gift and the receiver will love you for life. And most importantly, buy this book before it goes out of print!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Mature Avengers Story 10 July 2010
By RJ Smoove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Mark Millar is one of my favorite comic book scribes. His style is certainly not for everyone. It's often dark, violent, and sometimes offensive. One thing is for sure, that he always aims to leave an impression, or leave a mark on the reader. He actually shot to the top of my favorite Marvel writers list with this very book. The inspirations for the current Marvel Cinematic Universe is apparent when you read through this book. This oversized, stuffed, jam-packed with epicness Omnibus is among the biggest comic books in my collection. Great artwork, better writing. A bevy of extra content to look through. A must own for any Marvel fan, Avenger fan, or fan of great comic arcs period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top 5 reads of all time... 2 Jan 2010
By C. Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Hands down the best book, comic or otherwise I have read in recent memory. The story is fantastic and is accompanied by clear and dynamic illustrations. At no time will you have those "what just happened?" moments that can be a source of frustration with this medium. The oversized aspect adds to it, and the fact that all the essential Ultimates books are collected here makes it a must buy.
