Yeah, it's finally here, from the brink of obscurity. After months and months...and more months of waiting, the big finale to Grand Theft America is here.

And it definitely doesn't disappoint.

I won't spoil it here, but everything ties together nicely and sets up the premise for Jeph Loeb's Ultimates 3. The artwork was absolutely gorgeous, including a huge 8-page WIDE spread in the middle that must have taken Bryan Hitch weeks, if not months, to nail down.

After the huge hiccup that was the Civil War ending, it's nice to see Mark Millar wrap up the series he SHOULD be remembered for. Pick this one up ASAP. Especially for Tony Stark, who totally steals the show at the end.

EDIT: Unless you haven't read the last few issues. In which case, just wait for the hardcover, for God's sake.

I liked it, but the delays definitely lowered my interest. If I read the entire series from beginning to end a year from now, I am sure I will appreciate it a lot more.

Agreed, the Tony Stark stuff at the end was good, it's nice to have a Tony that you can actually like in a comic these days.

I loved how the end of Ultimates 2 was almost a direct OPPOSITE of Civil War.



Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

That is a GREAT observation!

I thought the restraint of not having Hawkeye kill Black Widow was an interesting choice Millar.

On a whole, however, I think this story line didn't really live up to what it could have been. Loki just wasn't as badass as he should have been.
