Marvel Announces Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man to Get New #1 by Brian Michael Bendis & Sara Pichelli

0

On Thursday afternoon, during a liveblog press conference about changes coming to the Ultimate Comics line, Marvel announced that they will be rebooting Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man with a new #1 issue, from the creative team of Brain Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli.

The series will be part of the “Ultimate Comics Universe Reborn” banner, which follows the events of the “Death of Spider-Man” arc happening now in Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates, and continuing in the weekly July series Ultimate Fallout.

Ultimate Fallout, beginning this July, will be a bridge between “Death of Spider-Man” and this rebirth of the Ultimate Comics line. It will touch on all the prominent characters who will be featured upcoming and showing how the Death of Spider-Man affected them. It will be written by all the writers working on the new books, including Jonathan Hickman, Nick Spencer, and Brian Michael Bendis.

Bendis says of the new series that, “People will see from the very first page that this is very different from what we’ve seen before. Not for shock value or cheap theatrics, but for new characters and a new landscape to explore Marvel.”

He explains that when he and Mark Millar were hired to start the Ultimate Universe they were seen as unique voices with something new to say. He says that he is incredibly proud of Jonathan Hickman, impressed by Nick Spencer, and is excited to work on a “tight, cohesive universe with them.”

Bendis says that he, Hickman and Spencer have been working together for months to plan this, which will contrast from the early days of the original Ultimate Universe where Ultimates had a different schedule and Ultimate Spider-Man really couldn’t acknowledge it as much as he wanted to.

Ultimate Fallout will spin directly out of Ultimate Spider-Man #160. You get “a taste of every character in the Ultimate Spider-Man universe and their reaction to events.” Bendis says that Ultimate Spider-Man #160 and Ultimate Fallout were two of the most emotional comics from him he has ever written.

Bendis teased that Spider-Man will have new powers in this new series, and that he did research on spiders.

On the controvery associated with rebooting the title with a third #1 issue, Bendis stated that “This needs to be a new #1 issue even by the most cynical fanboy qualifications.”

“Death of Spider-Man is about one moment connecting two books. The new books will be more like the early days of the original Marvel Universe where little things like Thor flying by in a Spider-Man book was really cool” said Bendis.

UltimateKidNova:

@Nicholas Coming up

3:08
Comment From figgy999

will i have to have read the previous run on Ultimate Spider-Man to get on board?

3:08
UltimateKidNova:

The goal is for the Ultimate Universe once again to show something you can’t see anywhere else. It has to be completely different from everything.

3:09
Strommy:

@figgy You should read “Death of Spider-Man” because it’s AWESOME, but this will be a jumping on point.

3:09
Comment From cjlethal

So happy Bendis is still writing Spidey!

3:10
Strommy:

Remember to send us questions for Brian, and we’ll pick two of them to ask during this call!

3:12

@Ian Brian is talking right now about how there will be more interaction between all of the Ultimate books moving forward, but Ultimate Comics Spider-Man will still stand on its own-no need to buy the other books to understand what’s going on.

Love the new costume!

@UltimateKidNova so is the Ultimate lineup going to consist of Ultimate Comics: Ultimates, Ultimate Comics: X-Men, Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man and Ultimate Comics: Hawkeye?

I’ve enjoyed Ultimate Spidey since its initial launch 10 years ago glad to know it’s still the longest running Ultimate series.

On the supporting cast, there will be new characters but they will need to meet old supporting cast members along the way who will also become part of the book.

3:33
UltimateKidNova:

There will be returning villains, new villains, an Ultimate versions of classic villains Brian can’t believe he hasn’t done yet. Mysterio will remain a major threat and new threats will come out of the X-Men book as well.

It was nice to have Bagley back for such a big event. Seems very fitting

3:42
UltimateKidNova:

“A lot of people make it clear that the Ultimate Universe was their way into comics or back into comics an that they have an emotional connection to these characters. I do too and don’t take it for granted. I take the relationship readers have with Peter, Mary Jane, etc. seriously. Some scary stuff is coming up, but ultimately, have no fear.” -Brian Bendis

I really enjoyed Chris Samnee’s work on Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man, has he worked on anything else?

3:49
Strommy:

@wyokid He has! You should check out THOR THE MIGHTY AVENGER, written by Roger Langridge and drawn by Samnee. It’s great!

3:49
Comment From BaIfro

I think it’s safe to say, even though there is no FF book, that the Ultimate Universe is once again on the correct path. Not that it hasn’t been, but what lies ahead sounds very promising

Samnee is also currently working on Captain America

3:51
UltimateKidNova:

@wyokid Chris also drew the Thor/Captain America Free Comic Book Day special out this weekend and will be the artist on Captain America & Bucky written by Ed Brubaker & Marc Andreyko beginning in July

3:51
Comment From Chad Adams

Will Ben and Sue feature in any books

3:51
Strommy:

@Joshua Good call! And he’ll be the artist on CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BUCKY beginning with issue #620 in July, I believe, along with writers Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko.

3:51
Comment From HolySock

So what if people hate geldoff. I was reading the Geldoff arc yesterday and it was actually one of the best written arcs of USM

3:51
UltimateKidNova:

@Chad We know Johnny will be in Ultimate Comics X-Men, but have not heard anything specific about Ben and Sue yet. However, Brian did say they will be back sooner rather than later.

3:52
Comment From Chad Adams

What about Evil Reed?

3:52
UltimateKidNova:

@Chad He’s MIA for the moment, but given how much time Brian spent setting up his new status quo, I think it’s safe to say we haven’t seen the last of him.

3:53
Comment From DorgonStudios

Ben and Sue would make great additions to SHIELD. Their wedding should be a big deal.

3:54
Comment From wyokid

If they do a wedding will Stan Lee not be able to get in?

3:55
UltimateKidNova:

@wyokid This time around it would probably be Brian Bendis and Mark Millar getting shown the door. Maybe Stan will kick them out.
