In 2000, Marvel launched the Ultimate universe with a single comic.
That comic was Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley’s Ultimate Spider-man.
The line – a modern telling of the normal MU – has expanded dramatically since, but Ultimate Spider-man has remained the constant, shocking readers with brand-new takes on the wallcrawler’s most infamous villains and storylines.
Just in time for The Amazing Spider-man movie, Marvel is releasing an omnibus collecting the first 39 (and ½!) issues of Bendis and Bagley’s modern classic, with an RRP of £75.
But if you go to ForbiddenPlanet.co.uk before Wednesday 4th January 2012, you can save 40%, bringing the price down to just £45!
Just go here.
Though this offer only applies to one of two covers, the other can be found for just £50.25.
The 1000-page book is due for release in June, and sees Peter Parker gain his webslinging abilities and battle the Green Goblin, Electro, the Kingpin, Venom and many more.
As I’ve been on the lookout for those early issues in the Hardcover format, I’m really looking forward to this omnibus.
Let me know if you’ll be picking it up below.
