Somehow I totally missed out on Ultimatum: Spider-Man #1 when it was released last week, but the good news is I still have a chance to pick up the second printing, when it arrives on July 22, 2009.Â So says Marvel in an announcement that the title is going back to press following a sell out at the distributor level. The end of the Ultimate Universe is upon us! Spider-Man has vanished, presumed dead amongst the wreckage of Dr. Strangeâ€™s home. How will his closest of kin deal with his disappearance?

In this issue: It’s a cartoon wonderland, as we seek out braveness, boldity, heroism, and truthiness! Wolverine leads the X-Men (hopefully they don’t go into battle in a giant koala pouch!) New York Comicon! The Devil made Slick do it, at least as far as you know. And the Legion of Super-Heroes goes quietly into that good night… Again.

What better way to wrap up an epic arc set up by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday than with a giant size issue from Marvel? Giant Size Astonishing X-Men #1 is indeed double the pages featuring the likes of Spider-Man, The Avengers, and the Fantastic Four in a smack down with Breakworld. Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that hits stores May 28, 2008.
If you have been listening to the Major Spoilers Podcast, you know I’m not a big Marvel reader, but I sure am excited about the Secret Invasion. The problem is, I didn’t get in on all the lead up issues so I might be missing out on some important plot points. Take for example, Captain Marvel #4 and #5 and Ms. Marvel #25, which Marvel claims are “crucial tie-ins” to Skrullapalooza 2008. The good news is, instead of reprinting each issue individually, Marvel is collecting the three issues in a single reprint one-shot.
