5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new episode in the Ultimates series
The story from the mini-series Ultimate Comics Fallout issues #1-6 is collected as Ultimate Comics Spider-Man: Death of Spider-Man Fallout. It continues the Ultimates story line from Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates. I haven't read the Ultimate Spider-Man series, so I don't know how that ties in, but there is a new Spider-Man appearing here, so I assume they have...

3.0 out of 5 stars only for Ultimate Comics fans
this book is supposed to be about the different reactions to the death of Peter Parker.

they range from uninteresting (Thor) to poignant (May Parker, Nick Fury). some stories are predictable (Kitty Pryde), some are surprising (Captain America).

This review is from: Ultimate Comics Fallout (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) (Hardcover)
this book is supposed to be about the different reactions to the death of Peter Parker.

they range from uninteresting (Thor) to poignant (May Parker, Nick Fury). some stories are predictable (Kitty Pryde), some are surprising (Captain America).

however, the book also has snippets of other characters that seem to be shoehorned in for no apparent reason (apart from generating interest in future issues).

for instance, there are scenes with Quicksilver and Reed Richards that don't even mention Peter.

if, like me, you have collected the Ultimate Spider-Man series, this book is worth buying as an end issue.

it is not a stand alone read.

at the end, i was left wondering what would happen next and i'll probably buy the new Miles Morales Spider-Man books.

i guess, as a teaser, this book has served its purpose

This review is from: Ultimate Comics Fallout (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) (Hardcover)
The story from the mini-series Ultimate Comics Fallout issues #1-6 is collected as Ultimate Comics Spider-Man: Death of Spider-Man Fallout. It continues the Ultimates story line from Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates. I haven't read the Ultimate Spider-Man series, so I don't know how that ties in, but there is a new Spider-Man appearing here, so I assume they have noticed that Peter Parker is dead, alas. The first issue is a sequential story, but subsequent issues break into segments following various characters, several of which are continuations of ongoing plotlines or appear to be setting up future storylines. The segments feature Captain America; Thor; Rogue; Tony Stark, Kitty Pride, Karen Grant and The Hulk; Spider-Man (the new one); Reed Richards - "Revenge will be mine!"; Valerie Cooper; Quicksilver; Nick Fury; Aunt May, Gwen Stacy & Mary Jane; Kitty, Bobby and Johnny; and Nick Fury revealing stuff to Mary Jane. The episodes have various writers and artists, I assume depending on who will be handling subsequent storylines featuring the characters. They are all interesting, and none are `filler'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Far to many tears and cheese, not enough substance., 23 July 2012
This review is from: Ultimate Comics Fallout (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) (Hardcover)
the book can be described in the two parts, one half deals with aftermath of death of the spider-man, the other sets up new story's.

Yes Peter Parker died, he was killed of in a fitting manner, sadly what follows is the stereotype comic book funeral where everyone is hyper emotional, blaming random people, blaming themselves, acting out of character, getting overly upset about things they were no involved it. Bendis who writes all of these sections of the book makes out the peter Parker was the centre of universe too everyone in that universe. but if you'd read any books before you'd know that wasn't the case. It was just he was the most popular single character with the audience.

the second half is a lot better, but it's more like teaser trailer, it grabs your interest but there not a full story there.

Overall the book is a bit everywhere, too many writers, too many artists. Give it a miss, unless your a die hard collector.
