Survive_1_banner

When Marvel decided to to rip the Ultimate Universe apart, they made the decision to send in Galactus to handle that business. The shockwaves, of course, rippled through all of the Ultimate Comics Universe, but the main story took place in Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand. Now with that event series complete, Marvel has teased Survive, the next chapter in the retooling of the Ultimate Universe that follows the aftermath of the Cataclysm.

Survive #1 will begin the building of a new Ultimates team, it will reveal all of the heroes that died, and it will begin to reveal what will become of S.H.I.E.L.D. The book hits store shelves and digital apps on March 26, 2014, but is available for pre-order now. For now we have a preview of some of the art from the first issue of this new series – check it out here below.

Get An Early Look At ‘The Death of Spider-Man’

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man 157The Death of Spider-Man begins in the issues of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates in February.

Marvel is really touting this story as a major game changer for the Ultimate Marvel Universe. Having Spider-Man dead will certainly cause some changes, but will we have this same old story as we’ve had so many times before when heroes die? You know the story: wannabe heroes come out of the woodwork to try and fill the shoes of the fallen hero often even taking his identity. If that’s what the fallout of Spidey’s death, well, that’ll just be boring.

At any rate Marvel has released an image of the variant cover art for issue 157 of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man set for release in April. This is the final issue of the story arc. This variant art was done by Ed McGuiness, who’s currently back on the Hulk series. Check out the cover art below and share your thoughts.

Ultimate Avengers cover preview

Marvel has sent us a bevy of exciting preview art from their upcoming Death of Spider-Man event set in the Ultimate Universe.

Marvel wants to make sure everyone understands this is an Ultimate book so there are no rules governing Spidey and what happens to him. Just because writers can do whatever they want doesn’t guarantee good, but it does promise different and that’s a start considering what’s happening in Amazing Spider-Man. The creative team behind this event is solid so there’s reason to give it a shot.

Here’s some preview art from Ultimate Avengers Vs. New Ultimates # by Leinil Yu and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #153 by Ed McGuinness to wet your whistle!

Death of Spider-ManUltimate Spider-Man fans rejoice, your dream team is back. Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley are reuniting for an 8-issue story arc for the groundbreaking 150th issue. The team worked on the series for almost 10 years when they went there separate ways. Bagley went to work on various DC projects while Bendis has worked on major Marvel events and on the Avengers titles.

Not only will the story be in Ultimate Spider-Man but it will crossover into Ultimate Avengers VS New Ultimates. Marvel has not revealed many details about the story and how Spidey will be laid to rest, but it will be a major blow to the Ultimate Universe and all of its characters. One of the major players in the story will be Mysterio, who has been shaking things up with killing the Kingpin.

Geeks of Doom Invades Dragon*Con 2010 banner

Ever since Marvel Entertainment confirmed that Joss Whedon had been chosen to direct their big budget Avengers film, the fan community has vocalized their support or distaste of the decision.

The point being? There is a renewed interest in all things Avengers.

For proof, one need only look to the attendees of Dragon*Con 2010, who showed off a plethora of well crafted costumes this year that featured Avengers both new and old.

We’ve attempted to capture a handful of what we saw while covering the event this past weekend in the photo gallery embedded below.

It’s also worth noting that Geeks of Doom photographer Derek Deweese let his fanboyism run wild in some of these photos by attempting to mirror popular comic book covers. (Neither of us remember the issue of The Ultimates where Captain America points to the “A” on his helmet. If you know the cover we’re talking about then by all means educate us in the Comments section below.)
