I've been mostly reading comics recently as I'm studying for an exam and can't afford to be reading books (otherwise I'll never do anything else). So back to the continuing adventures of Ultimate Spider-Man (some spoilers - be warned).

The opening Carnage storyline takes Pete down a dark road, just as things were looking up. It's a good tale but the sudden reintroduction of Connors and the events leading to the creation of Carnage are slightly forced. Still, visually Bagley knocks it out the park

The first half of this volume--the Carnage story--is the best Ultimate Spider-man story yet. This is the pinnacle of the "power and responsibility" theme that motivates the whole series. Anyone who knows much about the Spider-man mythology knows what has to eventually happen to Gwen Stacy. But when that thing that has to happen actually does happen, it's so unexpected, quick, and shocking that it's truly heart-rending.

Definitely weird.


Weirder. I should say, rather, since this is Spider-Man and the Ultimate universe that we're dealing with here. Carnage shows up and three mini-arcs have guest appearances from Wolverine and Johnny Storm and Dr. Strange helps Peter fight Nightmare.

The Wolverine two-parter is about as weird as it gets, Bendis was pretty up-front about it though, which helped (I should look it up to see if its even canon).

I liked it though, it was good to have those shorter segments, and with
Uneven. The series took a turn for the dark here. The first couple issues in the volume were good (but dark), and the team-up with Johnny Storm was also quite good. I didn't really care for the Wolverine body-swapping plot line though and I thought the last issue in the collection (introducing Dr. Strange) took a step backwards since the previous issue (the one with Human Torch) seemed to be leading Peter back to his role as a super-hero while the last one just reversed directions again.
Death of GS is dealt with in an unexpected manner. The story about Spidey and Wolverine switching body is fun. And everything works towards Parker breaking down psychologically.
