Marvel’s Ultimate Annuals Rock The Ultimate Universe

Official Press Release

Annuals have made their way back to Marvel, and they have found their way to the Ultimate Universe. In August, all of the core Ultimate books will be offering annuals, including Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four, and the Ultimates.

The Ultimate Annuals are stand-alone stories, which bolster the ongoing storylines of each of the regular titles at the same time. They also serve as landmark points in the history of the Ultimate Universe as Spider-Man gets a new girlfriend, Ultimate Crystal is introduced (and woos the Human Torch), Ultimate Juggernaut returns, and the next wave of Ultimates are brought together by Nick Fury.

“It was important that, although these annuals are stand alone stories, they tie into the events in the monthly Ultimate titles,” said editor Ralph Macchio.

“We wanted our annuals to count. And they do. And while I felt it was important for them to be written by their monthly scribes, this was a great opportunity to get pencilers on them who have done little so far in the Ultimate Universe. And we got a fantastic lineup including Tom Raney on Ultimate X-Men; Steve Dillon on Ultimates; Mark Brooks on Ultimate Spider-Man; and Jae Lee on Ultimate Fantastic Four,” added Macchio.

Once a yearly tradition for all Marvel books, annuals are being brought back to add onto the foundation of the Ultimate Universe through awe-inspiring stand-alone stories. Don’t miss Ultimate history in the making!
