Since we’ve unveiled our favorite comic book series of this year, we’ve decided to flip that coin over and give you our worst! The following results shocked us, because we’re both fans of the universe they exist in, but are sad to see it gone astray.
Read ComicUI’s Best Comic Book Series of 2014 before you proceed, although…there aren’t any spoilers below. Oh well. What was your least favorite series this year?
Brian – All New Ultimates
Mark Millar’s “Ultimates” are arguably what got me back into comics after childhood. Showing a reinvention of my favorite characters [...]
Welcome back to Comic of the Week here at ComicUI! We’ve been a little behind on these due to technical limitations, but we’re coming back strong with a dual submission for the week of 12/11/2013!
Due to some conversation within ComicUI and valid points from both sides, we’re presenting two Comics of the Week this week, both spinning out of the Ultimate Universe’s Cataclysm event.

The Ultimate Universe in Marvel has been my bread and butter since I was first introduced into comic books in 2005/2006. The series started in 2000 with Ultimate Spider-Man written by Brian Michael Bendis and has followed with some of the best comic books/graphic novels I’ve ever come across, e.g. Ultimates (anything but 3 or written by Jeph Loeb). As we reach the latter half of 2013, the series goes strong under the Ultimate Comics moniker and titles including Ultimates, Spider-Man, and X-Men. All three are solid on-going series that exist within the same contained universe, a modern day Earth. This was the premise when it was designed and still manages to reintroduce characters in [...]
