Comics of the week - 18/03/2009

Top titles for this week - Ultimatum #3 and Wolverine #71

Ultimatum #3 was very intense, with death literally on every page. The changes made to the Ultimate universe promise to be devastating based on this issue. How many heroes will be left? The finale seems to be the beginning of the end of 'The Ultimates', and the start of a new Superhero team emerging (the Ultimate Avengers???). Brutal, brooding and exciting.

Wolverine was just a lot of fun, lots of action, a great ending that sets up the concluding issues of the Old Man Logan storyline. Great art from Steve McNiven, and fast paced plotting from Mark Millar. A fast, satisfying read.
