I'm only defending them because regardless of the delays, i am patient enough to wait for the end of this series because i enjoy it. Delays are forgotten when you read it in one big row. The delays for Ultimate Nightmare, whilst not as long, were also comparable to Ultimates, only the payoff was completely pointless and boring. The entire Ultimate Triology saga was a sack of wet mice. But we could argue this until we're both Blue in the face. It's just a case of agreeing we disagree, i suppose. --Previous Message--
I don't think it's a declaration that they don't give a damn about the fans, Miller and hitch know the industry, they've been parts of it for YEARS. It just happens that to produce a superior piece of work, compared to some other Dross currently being produced, it takes time, and effort and sometimes delays.

: I fail to see how the fight that was a
: culmination of the pretty much all of
: Ultimates 2 was meaningless when it showed
: the heroes banding together, despite the
: fact families had been killed, they had been
: imprisoned etc. If anything it provided
: something lacking in other Ultimate titles -
: Action AND Characterisation. Ultimate
: Spider-Man has good scenes like in Issue
: 105, but the vast majority of the Clone Saga
: was meaningless Dross. It hurt to read.
: Ultimate X-men remains at the bottom of my
: pile, and is often only read when i have
: nothing else to do. It's simply not very
: good at all.
: Whereas Ultimates is, in my opinion, one of
: the few titles that actually consistantly
: puts out something that originally fulfilled
: it's brief. A Retelling of Classic
: characters updated for the modern world.
: How is time-travel, and alternate future
: selves, and various other things updated for
: the modern world? How is it even interesting
: when it's presented with Watered down
: artwork and poor dialogue.
: Ultimate Spider-man issues 103-104 were
: basically large fight scenes where very
: little information was gleemed, or
: Ultimates Prodives both of those things,
: with Widescreen action and good characters.
: im prepared to wait to buy it, because i
: want to see how they finish it, i like the
: creative team, and yes, the delays are
: horrendus, but the story makes it worthwhile
: in my opinion.

: Ultimates 2 has already been diluted and is
: monstrous joke. And what are we waiting
: for? The previous issue was a meaningless
: fight scene. Wow. Glad I waited for THAT.
: I didn't read much Millar or Hitch
: pre-Ultimates and I'll be reading less from
: now on.
: i think maybe the "culmination" of
: all of ultimates 2 would have meant more if
: we didn't have to wait 4 to 5 months for it.
: it is, after all, just a straight shot
: sequel of the issue before it. if they'd
: struck while the iron was still hot, it
: would have been great. but since we had to
: wait half a friggin year for it almost, it
: renders it meaningless.
: i don't even really give a damn about the
: new issue coming out in april. it's too
: long, and it's a straight up declaration of
: "we don't care enough about the fans to
: bother to put this book out on time".
: they've given up, so now have i.
