MARVEL SPOTLIGHT: ULTIMATES 3
Written by JOHN RHETT THOMAS
One of the hottest comics of the decade is about to get even hotter! Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch have delivered not one, but two epic runs on the Ultimate Universe's greatest heroes, with the triumphant ULTIMATES and ULTIMATES 2 becoming modern day classics. Now they step aside for an unbelievable combo of superstar talent to take over with ULTIMATES 3! Superstar writer Jeph Loeb and the awesome art of Joe Madureira and Christian Lichtner promise to find new ways to define the word Ultimate, and SPOTLIGHT will pull these three titanic talents aside for their take on the new series, as well as a look back at Millar and Hitch's masterpiece. It's Ultimate Spotlight with ULTIMATES 3!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
