Happy Holidays, you filthy heathens! This week I’m limiting the reviews to just three, but I included some great books! I hope everyone is either enjoying their holidays or about to!
ULTIMATES COMICS SPIDER-MAN #5

One of the things I loved about the Ulimate Universe (and still do) is that things change in ways they never would or could in the normal Marvel Universe. When there is a great creative team behind it we get something cool, like The Ultimates, and when there is not we get something like Ultimates 3… see what I mean?
I have been very vocal about my dislike of the current Ultimate Comics Spider-Man book. This title had been my favorite Spider-Man title consistently for a decade. It showcased my favorite version of Peter Parker, not his youth, but the characterization. When it was revealed they would be killing Peter and replacing him with a new Spider-Man I initially had mixed feelings. It represented the thing I loved most about the Ultimate Universe: change. Nevertheless, over the years many Ultimate books lost their edge and fun, but Ultimate Spider-Man did not, and I did not want that to change.
Much to Rusty’s dismay, the inimitable Walking Dead only managed one single solitary vote in last week’s poll. Too bad, so sad! But we can’t be too sore about it, a very worthy book ended up taking the victory. That book was of course Journey into Mystery #632. Probably one of the only titles that all staff members at Cosmic Comix can agree on. We love it.
This week, we’ve got the Happy Holidays edition of the weekly poll! So while you’re kicking back drinking eggnog and wearing your favorite Christmas sweater, tell us…
