2.5 stars. this is actually the first O.S. Card i have ever read (i have Ender's Game waiting in the wings). i enjoyed it, inasmuch as there were some very interesting sci-fi concepts & some very well-developed character stuff & some AMAZING art (emphasis on "some," but more on that later)...but the plot was pretty weak sauce. and the main villain was paper thin, so the last act was kind of a letdown. i say, "kind of a letdown," but i actually mean, "an enormous letdown," because not only did the end of the story suffer, the artist apparently had deadline problems, and the final issue was drawn by someone else. someone with a style *completely* dissimilar to Pasqual Ferry. it's a five issue miniseries that doesn't even take place in the present day Ultimate Universe. why did Marvel feel the need to rush it into production/publication? the shift in artist was so jarring that i came away with a much harsher judgment of the overall work because of it.
