Visionary writer Jonathan Hickman (HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X) and acclaimed artist Marco Checchetto (DAREDEVIL) bring you a bold new take on Spider-Man, with this, the debut title of the new line of Ultimate Comics! After the events of ULTIMATE INVASION, the world needs a hero…who will rise up to take on that responsibility? Prepare to be entangled in a web of mystery and excitement as the all-new ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN comic redefines the wall-crawler for the 21st Century!
Ultimate Spider-Man #1 is a stunning and refreshing comic book that introduces a new Ultimate Spider-Man for a new Ultimate Universe. The story by Jonathan Hickman is masterful and inventive, as he crafts a complex and intriguing plot that sets up the new status quo and the new challenges for Spider-Man. Hickman’s dialogue is witty and sharp, and he gives each character a distinct voice and personality. He also pays homage to the classic Spider-Man elements, such as the spider-bite origin, the supporting cast, and the rogues gallery, while adding his own unique twists and surprises.
The art by Marco Checchetto is gorgeous and detailed, as he creates a realistic and immersive world for Spider-Man to swing and fight in. Checchetto’s style is sleek and modern, and he captures the motion and energy of Spider-Man’s acrobatic feats. His character designs are expressive and diverse, and he gives Spider-Man a cool newish looking costume that reflects his new identity and role. The cover by Checchetto is a striking and iconic image that showcases the new Spider-Man and his web-shooters.
Issue number one of the new Ultimate Spider-Man is a must-read for any fan of Spider-Man, and Marvel Comics. It is a perfect example of how to reboot and reinvent a beloved character, while staying true to his essence and spirit while still being in the shadow of Miles Morales (the new generations Spider-Man). It is a thrilling and captivating comic book that will leave you hooked and eager for more. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Spider-Man.
