I thought the artwork was great, and I found the bit that focused on the new Spider-Man series the most interesting. Aside from that, I was very disappointed with this collection...it just seemed really boring and there wasn't a huge amout going on. Get something like Spider Men or Civil War instead? :)

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 26 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
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’.

This is a collection of a six issue mini-series. Billed as coming to grips with the death of Spiderman.

The pros: well there are some nice moments showing the human side of the Spiderman supporting characters.

The cons? Where do I start. Firstly much of this is NOT about spiderman or any of his supporting cast. It's a series of short scenes setting up things that may happen in other Ultimate Universe comics: evil Reed Richards is back? Tony Stark joins a new Group of powerful people? Captain America quits (off stage) well thanks for telling me but I really don't care. In the old days publishers would put out a really cheap comic (say £1) with these sort of trailers. Apparently now they do six issues and charge you £14 for the collected works, while selling it as something else. Lots of bitty scenes with different artists - it's like reading a collection of prologues for other people's stories.

And the Spiderman supporting cast? Well there's probably about two issues worth of actual Spiderman material here. And it really fails to have any resolution. Bits of it are quite to very good. And we have snippets of what we've lost. But there's no real resolution.

I did like Ultimate Spiderman, but this is an insult, selling us extended adverts, most of which have no connection to each other, and failing to deliver the resolution (or even something that resembled a story beat) you may want for so many long running characters.

Don't bother, really.

If the mutants were created, how are new mutants created? Is it in the air now in the atmosphere and some people are susceptible to it?
Im sure it was said but i have read the ultimate stories at least twice and it wasn't clear.
If your going to create a fundamental change in the marvel universe, it should be made clear.
I like the change i just think it should be told better

HASH(0x91f6ecd8) out of 5 stars Tragic, in more ways than one 22 Dec. 2011
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
---------------------------------------------------------
"Ultimate Spider-Man: Death of Spider-Man"
Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Illustrated by Mark Bagley
(Marvel Comics, 2011)
---------------------------------------------------------
Although story arcs in which superheroes are killed are, almost by definition, gimmicky, this volume (which gathers Ultimate Spiderman issues #156-160) is a fitting end to a great comicbook series. Yeah, yeah, I know -- the series continues with another kid taking up the mantle of Spider-Man, but most fans can stop here, with the death (no, really!) of the alternate-reality USM/Peter Parker. It's a fast-paced, gripping super-story, with traces of the crisp writing and humorous dialog that made USM one of the best Marvel Comics of the last few decades, but also with a crushing sense of finality and doom that is borne out in the remorseless battle sequence in which the Green Goblin finally kills Spider-Man. Peter Parker's nobility in the face of his own death carries real tragedy and pathos -- technically this may be an "alternate" version of Spider-Man, but it's really the same Peter Parker we grew up with, and he really does die, and it has surprising resonance.

There's a loss in the real world, as well: the USM book has consistently been the only title in the "Ultimate" brand that was worth reading, the only one not subsumed by a quasi-fascistic worship of violence for violence's sake. Indeed, USM was truly a great comicbook, consistently entertaining and full of the wide-eyed sense of innocent, kinetic adventure that Marvel exemplified in the 1960s, and gradually lost touch with from the '70s onward. Bendis may be able to sustain some of that elegant momentum in the re-re-rebooted series, but not for long, if at all. A pity. And, of course, there's always the possibility of a Peter Parker clone lurking in Ultimate-land... they had plenty of them popping up when the original Spider-books began their great decline, lo, those decades ago. But let's hope not: this was a powerful, heroic death, and it would be best if Marvel left well enough alone.

Speaking as a longtime Marvel geek, this is a story well worth reading, although I am sad to see a great book go. (DJ Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)

HASH(0x91f6ed38) out of 5 stars Fallout Sets Up the Future of the Ultimate Universe 26 Nov. 2011
By Joseph Born - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ultimate Comics: Fallout is a six issue limited series that details the aftermath of Spider-Man's death. Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman and Nick Spencer all write stories in this miniseries. Each issue deals with a different character/story.
Issue one is Spider-Man's funeral. There are some truly sad moments. *MINOR SPOILER* One such moments is Aunt May having a nervous breakdown in front of the national media. *END SPOILER*
Issue two tells short stories about Captain America, Thor, and Rogue.
Issue three deals with Tony Stark, the Shroud, and Ultimate X.
Issue four reveals the new Spider-Man, a not so dead super-villain, and shows what Valerie Cooper has been up to since the Ultimate Comics Avengers vs. New Ultimates miniseries.
Issue five shows how far Quicksilver has sunken into madness since Ultimatum and what Nick Fury plans to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.
Issue six is a heartwrenching look at Guen, Mary Jane, May's slow road to acceptance of Peter's death. Kitty, Bobby, and Johnny make an appearance too.
The art varies from each chapter in each issue. Virtually all the art is good and the dialogue is excellent. Overall this is an excellent buy if you're interested in seeing which direction the Ultimate universe is heading.

HASH(0x91f7118c) out of 5 stars This should have been called the Ultimate Mishmash. There was barely one consistent story in the whole book. 9 July 2015
By Matt Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Collects Ultimate Comics Fallout issues #1-6

This should have been called the Ultimate Mishmash. There was barely one consistent story in the whole thing. In the wake of the Ultimate Spider-Man's death, the characters in the Ultimate Universe all deal with various things. Some things are related to the death of Peter, and some things are setting up new storylines. I've read a lot of Ultimate Marvel titles, but I felt lost during multiple portions of this book. As a reader, we were given little clips and scenes of things happening over here, then we go over there. Nothing really held this "Fallout" story together. Characters appeared for one scene that I had never seen before, so I didn't understand the context of the conversation. Then, they wouldn't appear again for the rest of the book.

In almost every way this felt like the set up for the next chapter in the Ultimate Universe. And maybe that's what it truly was. I honestly don't know what was happening when this was originally released.

The artwork was strange within these pages because the artists would change within an issue (not from issue to issue). You'd turn the page, and suddenly a character would look different.

This was written by Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman, and Nick Spencer. They took turns doing different issues, but Bendis took the bulk of the work, while the other two did one each.

Some highlights:

-This book featured the first appearance of Mile Morales.

-Tony is approached about joining a secret society in this story, and I think that becomes an important plot point down the road.

-The appearance of Ultimate Reed Richards was probably my favorite thing in this book. I love that this 616 line appeared in an Ultimate book: "I'm going to solve everything."

-Aunt May, Gwen, and Mary Jane get a sense of resolution to their story arcs.

HASH(0x91f71558) out of 5 stars The Fallout 22 Sept. 2012
By shayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an interesting read for one main reason, what happens to the friends and family members when the super hero dies. Everyone who knew and cared for Peter Parker/Spider-Man reflect upon and deal with his death in there own way. Kitty and Bobby discuss what to do next, Johnny tries to handle his guilt, Aunt May realizes how big of an influence Spider-Man had on the city, MJ and Gwen do there best to live the lives that Peter would have wanted. This isn't a greatly written book Some elements aren't needed and some events that should of been expanded on aren't, but it does capture the feeling of a death of an icon. The most memorable scene to me is during the funeral and a little girl who Spider-Man rescued not knowing Aunt May took care of Spider-Man ask if she needed a hug. The Ultimate's do share what kind of impact Spider-Man had on there lives. On a personal note I really do wish this book explained a bit more as to why Captain America just left Spider-Man. The introduction of the new Spider-Man is a bit cheesy but show where the future of the franchise is headed. Over all I really enjoyed this book and though I believe it could have been bigger it was a nice way to say good bye to a legend.

HASH(0x91f71504) out of 5 stars Quite Interesting.... 16 April 2014
By Maggy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I actually bought this actually expecting the actual death of Spider-Man, so when i realized the actual contents of the book, I bought the actual death and saved this for later. I eventually read it and was quite impressed, seeing how this death affected not just Aunt May, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane, etc... but we also got see the affects on many others throughout the Marvel universe. Standouts were (obviously) Aunt May and Gwen Stacy, but I also enjoyed Kitty Pryde and Miles Moralis. Some had potential but didn't have enough to make it seem relevant, like Captain America, who had a good start off, but never really got a full issue to himself. Some characters didn't even need issues, like Thor made absolutely no sense, and Quiksilver and Scarlet Witch didn't seem to have anything to do with Spider-Man. But regardless, this was a great insight to a world without Spider-Man, and is great addition to my comic book shelf.
