"There’s a lot of interesting concepts that David weaves into his writing, and the amazing thing is how fluidly he makes it not only work, but work magnificently." – Adam Chapman of

"Peter David could write just about anything, and does just about every month with X-Factor. " – Michael Colbert of

Ultimates 3 #4 Returns With New Printing!

Marvel is pleased to announced that due to an overwhelming demand, the sold-out Ultimates 3 #4 is returning with Ultimates 3 #4 Second Printing Variant. Eisner-winning, Emmy-nominated super-scribe Jeph Loeb (Hulk, Captain America: White, television’s Heroes) and the superstar art team of Joe Madureira and Christian Lichtner continue the story of comics’ most controversial superhero team as Wasp fights for her life & the rest of the team confronts Magneto in the Savage Land! With a new cover featuring the interior art of Madureira & Lichtner, and tying into the red-hot March on Ultimatum, Ultimates 3 #4 Second Printing Variant is a must for any fans of the Ultimate universe!

"It’s unbelievably wild that we’ve sold out of all four issues AND multiple printings of these stories," said Loeb.  "We’re having a blast with the Ultimate U’s mightiest heroes and this issue really sets up our last issue #5 of the "Who Killed The Scarlet Witch?" arc.  The ending will surprise you — and even better, it is the direct lead in Ultimatum #1 with killer artwork by David Finch and Danny Miki!  Hop on now before the Ultimate Universe is never the same again!"

With quick sell outs of the first four issues and subsequent printings, Ultimates 3 is one of 2008’s hottest series and Marvel urges to check their orders on the book that has changed the Ultimate U forever!
