The service was brilliant and the item in question arrived extremely fast.
As for the story, I am a massive Ultimate Marvel fan and was greatly looking forward to seeing the origins of some key characters.
However, there is much cannon that goes against facts that were originally stated in previous series. Ultimate Origins contridicts itself and the ultimate universe in many ways. Already established backgrounds and ideas are thrown out the window with the later release of this origin tale. This doesn't mean that its a bad story, it's good and any Ultimate Marvel fan should add it to their collection, but like any series in the Ultimate Marvel Universe, it's not coherent. If you can overlook this, like many of the other series (i.e. Ultimate X-men) then you should enjoy this interesting tale, if only there were more of it tho.
This is the what graphic novels are all about. Civil War, World War Hulk, and this. Awesome stories that are brilliantly written, fantastic artwork and a really superb plot bringing together the best Marvel charaters in history. All I need to do now is work out which book comes next!! :-)
I've been a fan of Marvel Comics for many, many years. I've enjoyed some of the work in the Ultimate universe, and this was a good read, but by no means a classic. The art is great - the story is weak.
That said, I'll probably purchase the next few books anyway... just to see what happens.
