Ultimatum was better than Final Crisis!

I don't actually think that but I'm saying it anyway!

You scared me for a second.

So how long is this current arc of Daredevil? So I can get the parts before this one possibly?

We could always visit Adventure Comics #3 when it's my pick :-D

There have been 4 parts of 'Return of the King' so far, #500 is the last chapter. You may also want to get the 'Lady Bullseye' story, which is in trade I think.

With it being an anniversary issue, I don't see it being impenatrable to new readers.

I see it this way, you can pay $5 for a great Daredevil story, or $3 for a mediocre at best, Batgirl story. Next week is really light on pickable stuff.

From the moment Captain America appears, Ultimate Comics Avengers #1 is pure nerd boner. Cap on a motorcyle exploding out of a building and jumping into a helicopter is such a wonderful Captain America-y thing for Captain America to do I couldn't help but love this comic. Mark Millar is at his best when he treats his comics like action movies and nothing really says action quite like Hawkeye and Captain America fighting A.I.M. in helicopters above the city of Chicago. It's the perfect antidote for the absurdity that the Ultimate Universe has become in recent years and it reads the same regardless of whether you abandoned ship after Ultimates 2 or if you suffered through to the end of Ultimatum. While the twist ending has been out there on the internet for a few weeks, I can't help but be excited to see where the story is going and how the characters on the back of the wrap-around cover will factor into it.

Carlos Pacheco's return to a book with Avengers in the title is long overdue. With his work on Avengers Forever he will always be one of my favorite Avengers artists and his work in this issue is superb. His layouts are exceptional and you can feel the motion in the action sequences. I might even like the way he's drawing Ultimate Cap's costume better than the way Hitch originally designed it. On top of that Justin Ponsor's colors jump off of the page.

Story: 9
Art: 9.5
Overall: 9.25

two things...
1. My EIC completely destroyed my brain, but it turns out I was assigned this book, so it will be my normal quote and score, should work it for this evening....

2. This is all I will say about EBAY this week... I thought it was known, but evidently not, I will give any outhouser free domestic shipping on any comic in the store. I will work out a discount for anyone overseas (but will have to forgo the patented indestructible box)...
