Review by schatzi
As a previous reviewer stated, this is an Ultimates book with Spider-Man as the guest star. The trade collects one issue of Ultimate Spider-Man and the mini Ultimate Six.The story itself is pretty interesting, although slow going at some times. Bendis writes Spidey well, and though he does a fair job on the Ultimates, he doesn't give them the spark that Millar does. I did like how he wrote Cap using 1940s slang, however; that was a nice touch. My main problem is the art; it's just not very good, and it became a distraction after a while.
Review by shanaqui
This volume is less about Spidey himself and more about the larger Marvel universe, the politics, etc. It features Ultimate Captain America (who has a very good point about the way people shaping the way they think a war will happen <I>creating</i> that as a consequence, I might add) and the rest of his team, plus a lot more of Fury and Sharon Carter. Despite the relative lack of Spidey (and barely a glimpse of Mary Jane, no sign of Gwen Stacy and a few pages with Aunt May), it's a good volume -- ups the stakes a bit, uses old story threads, generally has a lot of excitement.
