Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off, I would like to say that the Marvel Omnibus format has to be my favorite, compared to all other trades Marvel releases.
Now the review can begin.
This book is a HEAVY faux-leather book that is fantastically bound and well made. The cover is a crimson red with a distinctive silver "Ultimate Spider-man" insignia on the front, this cover is subtle yet dignified. The Spine of the book has the "Marvel Omnibus" logo on the top with the title and creative team on the side, this is all in the same silver tone as the insignia on the cover. This book is physically superior to most other formats, and graciously outshines the paperback trades.

The dust jacket features a gallery of all the covers in this volume, which is a nice touch.

As for the content of the book itself, the content is a perfect partner to the aesthetic appeal of this volume.
Ultimate Spider-man has the fantastic creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley. Bendis is at his best in this series and is able to wonderfully capture the spirit of Spidey, from his guilt to his quips directed at his foes. As for Bagley, the art is great at capturing the swell of these epic conflicts between our young hero and his foes. Not only that but Bagley is also able to capture the individual spectrum of emotions for each character, from Kraven to MJ.

This volume collects some of young Peter's most interesting conflicts. The first arc establishes fan-favorite Norman Osborn as possibly Spider-man's most dangerous foe. As difficult as it would seem to usurp this as the supreme arc in the story, the series continues to improve as you read. The rouges gallery given and improved upon include: Electro, Doc Ock, Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter and more.

First off, let me say that I've played the video game "Ultimate Spider-Man" before I knew it was a comic book series. It was my favorite Spider-Man game ever. When I found out it was a comic book series, I decided to buy it and give it a go. This is a really good series. This omnibus collects Ultimate Spider-Man #1-39 and 1/2. It retells Spider-Man's origin and includes some of the best villains to ever appear in comics, including Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, and my personal favorite, Venom. The Green Goblin is i bit different in this series because he doesn't ride around on a glider, but looks more like a bald Hulk with horns and a purple robe. I especially love the art in this series. It has a new art look, different from "The Amazing Spider-Man". It also has a different layout, to fit in today's comic book style. I highly recommend this series for any Spider-Man fan!

Format: Hardcover
Now, I want to say something here: I'm technically reviewing only the chapters contained in this book, not the book itself.
It might be that this book is indeed the same as the Barnes and Noble Omnibus I got, complete with some behind the scenes stuff between the 3 collected volumes, but I don't know for certain. If it does, you'll no doubt enjoy Bendis' comments once you finish an arc up, but if not, you're not missing out too badly.

As for the actual comics contained in this massive book, they will take you through an amazing journey into the Ultimate Marvel universe that you won't forget. It's a far less cluttered world than the regular Marvel universe where everyone is still figuring out their own roles in it, and this book is the perfect entryway to this world.

The story itself took me on something of an emotional journey which I really didn't expect. My first reading, a lot of the earlier parts of the book disappointed me with how slow things were going considering how used to being dropped right into the hectic action when opening up most comics. However, when I finally got over that unreasonable expectation and let myself enjoy the book after being assured things did pick up, I realized just how well Bendis lays out his groundwork for stories. Those earlier, slower chapters ended up making Uncle Ben's death hurt all the more, show just how much the classic lesson of great power and great responsibility was necessary for a Peter Parker who was clearly at a crossroads between hero and villain after being given the short end of the stick all his life, and really justify why Eddie Brock breaks down later on.

A great book for those who haven't started reading Ultimate Spiderman and for those who have read them but may have them in scattered formats. The writing of Bendis is excellent. He does a great job creating a world full of pitfalls and triumphs, but most importantly where the reader cares about the characters. The art is stunning and this format really has the color jump off the page. The binding of the book itself appears to be well put together and durable.

Can't recommend this book enough, to fans of Spider-Man. Brian Bendis writes a great Peter Parker, giving this series a lot of heart. Great Story, great art, great value.
