The Ultimates





US-Comics for a change. And this one is awesome.

You probably read a few classic superhero comics at one time or another. Superman/Spiderman and shit like that. Some probably ditched this kiddy stuff and switched to some advanced forms of graphical novels, like Sin City, V or Preacher. Or the no-nonsense brutal reenvisioning of the superhero genre, like Planetary, The Authority or the relaunch of the Squadron Supreme with the almighty Hyperion. Definetly not the Justice League.

Now imagine that the new generation of authors responsible for the new, realistic and cynical tone of the best comics america has to offer - what if those authors gang up and take over Marvel Comics shitty Avengers series. Enter The Ultimates.

You get nazis, aliens, nazi aliens, superpowered domestic violence, heroes killing brand name villans, heroes killing innocents, cannibalism, a black Nick Fury (and boy, this guy is hardcore), torture, a god out of a mental institute, a naked giant man and his 10-foot dong, politics, intrigue and a captain america that knows how to use guns and grenades.


And most important: A believable and great story.

The Ultimate relaunch of the Marvel Universe is probably the best thing Marvel ever did. And now you get it on the iphone.

The images were scaled down to a width of 480, which makes the text readably - not as readable as the larger manga text bubbles, but readable enough. I had to compromise a bit to ensure that the images load fast in the Comic Viewer. It's not optimal but it's enough, i think.

If you haven't installed the Comic Book viewer program yet then you can find a guide for that if you follow this link.

I hope you'll enjoy it. I did so much that I bought every single Ultimate hardcover I could find. Well worth it.
