Format: Hardcover
Seriously, the first real Ultimates series post-Ultimatum and it's written by Jeph Loeb, the guy who essentially ruined the franchise in the first place? His Ultimates 3 series was awful, and the less said about Ultimatum the better, yet he somehow got asked to put all the pieces back together again. New Ultimates: Thor Reborn finds the team - original members Captain America, Iron Man and Hawkeye plus newbies Black Panther, Zarda, Valkyrie, Ka-Zar and Shanna - facing off against the Enchantress and Loki with Thor trapped in the underworld.

I'm shocked to admit this, but Loeb actually wrote a pretty decent story here, and one that's in keeping with the original spirit of the Ultimates series. It has a big screen action feel, but with clever dialogue and some keen pop culture observations. There's enough intrigue to keep things moving, and the final battle is suitably spectacular.

Frank Cho provided artwork for this series, and if it's not quite at Bryan Hitch level (what is, really), it's still pretty terrific. I always associate him with cheesecake-style images, and there's some of that here, but he draws a mean superhero battle as well. His out of control Thor and Valkyrie towards the end of the book really stand out.

I'd still prefer to see the Ultimates in the hands of Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch, but Jeph Loeb and Frank Cho did a really impressive job on this series. It was well-written, well-illustrated, and more or less puts things in order for the team going forward. It will be interesting to see the Ultimates and the Avengers square off in Ultimate Comics Avengers vs. New Ultimates.

"The New Ultimates: Thor Reborn"
Written by Jeph Loeb
Illustrated by Frank cho
(Marvel Comics)
---------------------------------------------------------------
Marvel's so-called 'Ultimate Universe' has had an uneven history, ranging from the excellent Ultimate Spider-Man series to the disturbingly quasi-fascistic vision of this reality's version of the Avengers. Indeed, with the Ultimatim storyline, Marvel seemed ready to throw in the towel, kill off all these variant characters and call it a day, and I think many readers were fine with this idea. However, things limped along and the Ultimates, along with Spidey, were resurrected, albeit in a ragtag lineup that echoed the early changeup of the original Avengers (in issue #16) which left Captain America in charge of a new crew. This new story revolves around the eternal battle between Loki and Thor, and has a pretty conventional story arc, with the bads guys coming in, rocking the good guys on their heels, clobbering them while revealing their big scheme of conquest, and then getting their butts handed to them - it had a lot of the feel of an old 1960s/early '70s epic, just with fancier art and a raunchy undertone.

The sexual frankness of today's comics -- particularly in the Ultimate universe -- is tinged with a hefty helping of Playboy magazine-style objectification (I'm thinking here primarily of a panel where we see the gratuitously sexualized, bikini-clad backside of Patsy "Wildcat" Walker crawling wet out of a swimming pool while having an unimportant conversation with a quartet of male superdudes, who are all fully clothed, seated poolside at a card table, playing poker.

Format: Paperback
Let's start by saying hat nearly anything drawn by Frank Cho is going to be a visual masterpiece. His women are all beautiful and the men heroic in proportions. But if you think I am starting out the review with that comment as apology for the story, you'll be pleased that is the furthest thing from the truth.

I don't follow all of the Marvel comics, nor do I read them in order. That can make it tough on me as a reader to understand where and when the story fits in, in the context of the other books. This contained collection reprinting New Ultimates 1-5 was easy to follow. Anyone with a decent understanding of the marvel characters will find it a good self-contained story arc.

Jeph Loeb does excellent story-telling here. The story flows well, the characterization is believable and the action is non-stop. There are comics where the story becomes a chore to read with jerky plot movement or poor dialog. This is the polar opposite. A fully enjoyable read.

The book also comes with a bonus pullout poster (well fold out since it is bound into the book) with the color on one side and the pen-and-ink version on the other. It is a very nice bonus treat.

The Ultimate universe started very strong but leading up to the Ultimatum event, the event itself, and what first followed, the universe has been declining. This might be step forward finally. The story was really good, while too salacious for the hero books I enjoy. I always love a good Loki story and this is what this book truly is. The house got cleaned and hopefully the future will continue on this path. The art by Frank Cho is, of course, amazing. He meshes cheesecake with cartoony action perfectly. Overall, a very good book.
