Ultimate Spider-Man 90 (April 2006)

Dell’s back on inks. There aren’t as many close ups so it doesn’t get too bad, but it’s not great. The faces are too sharp.

It’s mostly an action issue, with cuts to Nick Fury and Tony Stark talking in exposition to explain the comic to the reader.

Ultimate Vulture is a waste of time, just a way for Bendis to introduce Ultimate Tinkerer, who’s probably a waste of time too.

Silver Sable’s team isn’t in it as much, which is both good and bad. Good because Bendis wrote them so poorly, but bad because it means he’s got no dedication to making his plot flow. He jumps from character to character, only briefly pausing on Peter (who’s in the middle of it all).

Actually, it reads more like Peter’s guest starring in The Ultimates than leading his own title.

It’s not terrible, just not any good. Bendis’s struggling again.

  1. This stuff doesn’t seem to be aging well. Perhaps the first fifty or so would be the ideal reminiscing point.
