If I'd review it I know for sure I'd give it a 7.5...I'm just not up for it this week due to personal stuff flying around from all angles. But if I'd have to put it in a nutshell? Let's give this a shot:

This story has been a great introduction to the new Ultimate Spider-Man, his life, friends, origin story. The story has been fairly slow paced so far allowing the character to be fleshed out somewhat before he takes up the Spider-Man identity...that's a double edged sword however, while a character who'll be this pivotal needs to be built up, it's an awfully slow burn when we already know where this story is going: Miles goes from being uneasy and nervous about these powers to becoming the new Spider-Man.

Onto the art, Sara Pichelli is a really great artist. It's been top noch throughout this whole series and she didn't disappoint this issue. Loved Ganke's "Frog Man" shirt.

Overall: 7.5



Not as wordy as my other reviews but I agree the book needs more than two reviews.

Ultimate Spider-Man #3
Here's the thing. This character holds no interest to me whatsoever. In fact there is no real connection here to make him even a legacy character. I get the fact that this universe is all about moving forward, but in this case it was the worse move ever.

The story is boring, the character is boring and to be honest even the art doesn't work for me on any level. I'm really glad I dropped this stinker but will not hold it against anyone that I was forced to waist my money on this.

I highly recommend the Amazing Spider-Man in the 616 Universe right now. THough I'm not a big fan of that either at least its a solid read. If anyone out there actually reads this review, take my words to heart. The book stinks up to high heaven. Avoid it at all costs.

Story: 2
Art: 1
My Score: 1.50

I read it but the nice art was blanked by a very dull story. I have nothing but apathy towards this comic at the moment.

I'm not doing an article yet because turn-out has been so bad, sort it out and do some reviews.

Would it help if I reviewed it a second time? I'd be happy to score it lower.

I'm sure Yoni would too. :-D

I may join up with the next review.... Got to hustle some bus passes to people on the streets, then I got to go across town to drop off some movies to a friend (Who is paying) then night school. Life is hard for a wigger on the streets, I don't act black so I am cool with most of the guys on the block.
