Marvel announced yesterday that following the end of the Ultimate Spider-Man: Death of Spider-Man event, the company will launch Ultimate Comics: Ultimates. No, really. It’s all part of the Ultimate Comics Universe Reborn initiative and it kicks off in the Ultimates ongoing series written by Johnathan Hickman.
“We’re building a cohesive universe in that all the Ultimate books will be tied in pretty tightly, and we’ll be playing off each other,” Hickman said, noting that he and the other creators — who will be revealed throughout this week — look forward to working together.”
According to Marvel Editor Mark Paniccla, things will be more cohesive going forward.
“This is the characters reacting to the death of Spider-Man, there’s a lot of introspection but there’s also a lot of set-ups,” Paniccia said. “This is a miniseries you’re not going to want to miss.”
Ultimate Comics; Ultimates #1 arrives in August.
