“Legacy”: 40% Off Ultimate Spidey!

2 Comments

In 2000, Marvel launched the Ultimate universe with a single comic.

That comic was Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley’s Ultimate Spider-man.

Cover by Joe Quesada.

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.

Art by Mark Bagley.

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.

Cover B By Pat Olliffe

Get there now though – the offer ends on Wednesday 12th October 2011! It only applies to Cover B… but it’s by the excellent Pat Olliffe, so if you have a problem with that, there’s probably something wrong with you. Olliffe also provides Cover A; so it’s win-win!

The 800-page omnibus collects Amazing Fantasy #16-18 (from 1995), Untold Tales Of Spider-Man #1-25, #-1, Annual 1996-1997 and Strange Encounter, plus material from Amazing Spider-Man Annual #37, and is written by Kurt Busiek, G.L. Lawrence, Tom DeFalco, Roger Stern and Fred Hembeck. There’s a plethora of fantastic artists too, including: Pat Olliffe, Paul Lee, Greg Loundon, Ron Frenz, Bob McLeod, Mike Allred, Tom Lyle, and John Romita.

Cover A... also by Pat Olliffe!

It’s expected around 14th March, and features some of the supposedly-‘lost’ stories of Peter Parker as the wall crawling menace.

Forbiddenplanet.co.uk also have Cover A for £48.70, while Amazon.co.uk has Cover B for this price too. Forbiddenplanet.com has the highest price for both covers at £51.74. WHSmiths.co.uk has it on pre-order for £49.50.

In other news…

 

Amazon.co.uk has revealed a really big teaser of things to come: they’ve got an omnibus pre-order for April 2012… Ultimate Comics Avengers By Mark Millar. Of course, the range has previous with the Ultimates omnibus, which is now long out-of-print. Here’s the blurb, straight off Amazon:

“All of superstar Mark Millar’s Ultimate Avengers sagas, collected in one oversized volume! In a bid to learn the truth about the devious Red Skull, Captain America goes rogue and S.H.I.E.L.D. commissions a new group of Avengers to bring him in. But can Nick Fury, Hawkeye, War Machine, Red Wasp, the new Black Widow and Nerd Hulk hope to keep Cap from his mission? Then: a 7-foot-tall biker with a flaming skull has been brutally murdering rich and powerful men across America, and the White House orders the Avengers to take down the Ghost Rider by any means necessary.”

Apparently a 608-page HC, the book has an RRP of £55.99, but they have it for £47.59. If they’re right, I’m looking forward to this one; what do you think, everyone?
