Lloyd's Pick of the Month


•  THE SCOOP: The dream team of Mark Millar (ULTIMATE X-MEN) and Bryan Hitch (The Authority) unleashes the best title in the red-hot Ultimate line!
•  THE STORY: A mutant madman attacked the President of the United States on the White House lawn. A gaudily costumed teen climbs walls in New York City. The strange beings who've appeared overnight are here to stay. The old order has fallen, and people are scared. Nick Fury, head of the elite espionage agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., has a unique solution: Put these bizarre characters on his payroll! His grand idea: a small but lethal army known as The Ultimates, created to protect us all from the rising threats to mankind! Reprinting THE ULTIMATES #1 - #6, featuring newly reimagined incarnations of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk, Giant-Man and The Wasp!
•  THE FORMAT: 160-page trade paperback.

The thing I have always loved about MARVEL is that their characters seem the most realistic, even for a super-hero.  Millar & Hitch bring to life characters that you would meet in real life while staying true to the core of who the hero is.  A classic the moment it hit the shelves.
