Ultimates 3.1 Second Print in Stores

The second print of Ultimates Volume 3 issue 1 was released yesterday with a beautiful new cover (see last post) as well as a colour fix of the interiors! The dark and muddy print job has disappeared and has been replaced by a much lighter and clear print that lets the fine details be shown in the work by Joe Madureira.

I found out that Jeph Loeb and Joe Madureira will be special guests at Wizard World Los Angeles so I'm sure there will be some new announcements and details on their Ultimates 3 run. The convention takes place from March 14-16th, 2008.

Over at Marvel Comics there are two sweet wallpapers of the covers to Ultimates Vol 3.3 and 3.4, here are the highest quality versions for your viewing pleasure.




Finally, Ultimates 3.2 comes out next Wednesday January 23rd to your local comic book retailers, don't forget to pick up your copy!

Ultimates 3 #1 to have a second print!

Great news for Joe Madureira fans, the first issue of Ultimates Volume 3 sold out and will have a second print. The cover will feature the splash page with Valkyrie about to cut Venom, expect it to hit shelves on January 16th.


Also, there was a bit of a backlash on the printing quality of the first issue, it was dark and muddy which made it very moody (which was great in my opinion). Anyway the second print may be altered to have better printing... here is was the colourist had to say.


So I finally got a copy. Don't ask why it's taken this long, but trust me it wasn't easy.

The book printed so incredibly dark, I have a difficult time trying to stay positive about anything. The book sold out, and the thought that they're all out there, this dark and muddy, is really hard to take.

I'm trying to find out if there's anything I can do about this for the 2nd printing. I'm really hoping that there is, as I'll do anything to try to get this fixed.
