Ultimates Volume 1: Super-Human

Created by writer Mark Millar and artist Bryan Hitch Ultimates is a modern reimagining of the Marvel superhero team, The Avengers.

It’s a hard nosed and gritty exploration of what happens when a bunch of ordinary people are turned into super-soldiers and groomed to fight the real-life war on terror.

Darkly written Ultimates breaks away from the standard notion of the ‘superhero’ with a big dose of cynicism and characters stripped of their ‘super-heroic’ status.

With amazing artwork from Hitch it’s an intriguing and amusing modern takes on classic Marvel characters with Captain America as you’ve never seen him before!

Great stuff even if you’ve never entertained the idea of reading a superhero comic!
