A trip down memory lane! So the other day, a friend of mine brought some comics of his, to get my opinion, and some of them were issues of this series, and I read this ten years ago, so I thought, why not re-read! Well, Its not a good memory anyway. So I have never really liked the ultimate universe, and I'm glad its done with, with the events of Secret Wars, and this just reminded me why; the whole mood of this comic is just dark, depressing, which really should not be what a spider man comic i [...]

When I first started reading Ultimate Comics All-New Spider-Man with Miles Morales, one of the characters that interested me was Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman. (Please note that all refernces and names in this review is from the, as of 2016, defunct Ultimate Marvel Universe an alternate reality of "standard" Marvel.) I became more and more curious about her character as more and more was revealed about her and I decided to go and read about her adventures pre-Miles Morales. It begins with this volum [...]

This volume is pretty nuts. I liked it, though. Does Jessica Drew get her own comic at all? I love her outfit. And hmm, Gwen Stacy is sort of back? Interesting. I laughed at the introduction where it said that in Marvel, people stay dead. You know, like Bucky.Suuuure. Like Bucky.I'm interested to see what comes out of this as far as Kitty Pryde and Mary Jane go. I'm pessimistically doubting it'll be the way I'd like it to be, but oh well.

Really enjoyed this arc. I was surprised how long it was! Definitely the most complicated arc Bendis has attempted in Ultimate Spider-Man so far. Ultimate Jessica Drew is a very interesting character, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her in the future.

Full disclosure: I have never read the main Marvel U version Clone Saga, neither the 10-issue arc from the 70s nor the massive event that consumed all four (four? God) Spider-Man titles for two full years in the early 90s. So I have no basis of comparison for Bendis's 9-issue version. That may be a good thing. The Clone Saga does not have the best reputation as an ongoing storyline. But it does mean that I have to judge this version on its merits as a story, without comparing it to what came bef [...]

What a fantastic series. In this volume, writer Brian Michael Bendis and the art team, headed by Mark Bagley bring their unique, updated spin to a story which, according to the introduction, has been spun a number of times The Clone Saga. This volume, much like the best of the others of this series includes hilarity, intrigue, substance, and a story that's just amazingly fun to read. The art continues to be perfect for the style of the story. This has got to be some of the best Spider-Man out th [...]

Dense, wow this was super dense. World: The art is really starting to grow on me. Yes I know we are getting to the end of Bagley's run but I'm starting to see that he is getting the characters down, facial expressions are not as weird. The world building here was phenomenonal. It was not just building the world but using a lot of pieces in the MUU to tell this story, a lot of moving pieces and handled wonderfully. Story: Not to spoil anything for readers but wow, this is dense. There is so much [...]

The Clone Saga – I suppose it had to happen. Bendis takes on the Ultimate version of one of Marvel’s most controversial, confusing, and dreadful storylines. This one does make a little more sense than the original story (probably because here it was planned out from the beginning), as Dr. Octopus makes multiple clones of Peter Parker, turning one into the Scorpion, one Spider-Woman, etc. There’s also a clone of Gwen, who for some reason becomes Carnage. The Ultimates and X-Men really only [...]

this graphic novel mostly shows peter parker at his best. the illustrators bring out the graphic details and body structure to look as real as possible. the story line is very appealing. in this volume peter parker (the main character) is stuck between two important woman in his life. his recent girlfriend who is a member of the imfamous super hero group called the "X-Men" and his long time friend and recent ex Mary Jane. and throughout the volume spiderman finds out that a old villian, named oc [...]

Dude, like, what the, wow! Probably the darkest arc line in the Ultimate series thus far, the Clone Sage blew my mind away. I mean, I knew what was going to happen in the long run. If you've read or even heard about the old one, you know what's going to happen. But at the same time, you don't. As they said in the beginning, they knew where they were going this time. Parker's life being turned inside out again is just ridiculously scary. You're literally driven insane by what people are saying an [...]

This volume answered the questions I had about a particular character. It also changed EVERYTHING in poor Peter Parker's reality. People seem to come back from the dead, including his father. Clones are made of Peter and experimented on so there are weird variants (Scorpian!Peter, adult!Peter, female!Peter) and not all the clones are completely mentally or physically stable. This is a big problem, as one might guess. The bigger problem is that it's impossible to hide this from the city, S.H.I.E. [...]

So this is a big, loud, confusing mess that manages to exemplify some real comic awesomeness. It's got clones, people coming back from the dead, and an unlimited supply of surprises. It's not perfect (there are definitely some holes in the plot [why exactly does the older clone exist?]), but it is definitely exemplifies how FUN comics can be when they aren't overly serious. I'm completely unfamiliar with the original clone saga, but I've read enough mixed reviews to know vaguely that it was a lo [...]

What is it that makes me love Spider-man so much? It's the humour. He's a funny guy! This arc, on the other hand, is the opposite of funny. Trust me. It's actually quite depressing. I loved it, though. I'm one of those people who's either into funny stuff or pretty dark stuff. There's no in-between. Clone Saga is really dark. And it's suspenseful. Each time you think there're no more surprises, guess what? There are.Sure, some things felt a bit too overdone, like the thing with MJ (trying not to [...]

This frustrated me, half way through the book I was going to trash it, considering Ive recently reread the entire series I was shocked about how bad the first few issues of this are. The worst thing being mj as a giant squirrel I mean If they got rid of that it wouldn’t have been so bad. But it was unnecessary and looked stupid. My issue with this is the pacing. too many important things happen in this that could have happened much slower instead of throwing it all in together in a couple of i [...]

Apart from the ultimate universe I have not read any marvel comics post 1982, so writing a review is akin to after only hearing Elvis Presley records too be suddenly asked to review a Frank Zappa Album.This is by far the best story arc so far in the series, the dialogue is crisp, at times both moving and funny. Peter wondering why he had not had a stroke due to the events unfolding around him was especially well done. Peter always as the puppet of other people's agendas as been a constant thru o [...]

Apparently the original run of Spider-Man had a whole clone thing. I'm not aware of that. I do know that I enjoyed Clone Saga from the Ultimate Spider-Man , even though it felt like a giant excuse to get Peter and Mary Jane back together after their earlier break up.By far, the most interesting clone was Spider-Woman. I'd like to see more of her. The Scorpion clone, not so much. The thing I really like about Brian Michael Bendis is his ability to give real emotion to his characters. The scene wh [...]

All this time, I had heard about the infamous Clone Saga from the old Spider-Man comics- which I never had read. But, after reading Bendis' take on it, I did enjoy myself. The plot can take some unbelievable turns, but I still love how each character shines and gets their moments. I especially liked the ending, when I thought Bendis would talk the well-worn "get out of jail free card" superhero ending, with someone finding out their identity, but let it rest, and I respected him for it. I like d [...]

I'm not really sure if all the prior volumes led up to my enjoyment of Volume 17, but this volume of Ultimate Spiderman was the most fun I've had with a superhero comic in a long time. The pacing was perfect, the stakes for Peter Parker were high and he was forced to change how he normally does things (calling other characters in for help and letting go of a few secrets). This really felt like a turning point in the larger plot of Ultimate Spiderman and it was handled with the perfect combinatio [...]

I have no idea why it took so long for these issues to come out in trade paperback, but I almost feel like it was worth the wait-- it had been so long since I read this series that I'd forgotten how fucking great it is. Bendis is, without question, the best dialogue writer in comics. The awesomeness of this arc more than made up for the execrable Ultimate X-men crossover story of the last trade. The Ultimate X-men piss all over every book they appear in.

I loved Ben Reilly. Yet the convoluted mess of the original Clone Saga confined him to nothingness. In the Ultimate Universe, Peter faces off against himself in various incarnations. A cybernetically enhanced Scorpion, a multi-armed Tarantula, and scarred Kaine, and even a female Spider-Woman provide intrigue and a breath of fresh air into this Saga - especially when the mastermind is finally revealed!

Spidey, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, S.H.I.E.L.D & The Avengers all in the same place at the same time. OmgAlso, the spidey & spider woman team up against Octavius was bad ass. Definitely want to read more about Jessica Drew now.I'm so sad that I don't have volume 18 :/ wanted to see how Kitty handles Peter & MJ getting back together.

My expectations were low. I'm not a massive fan of Spider-Man, I think that he is over used / oper exposed and I vaguely remember the debacle that was the original clone saga 20 yers or so ago. However I found this Ultimate Universe reimaginging to be a highly enjoyable read, accompanied with some great artwork.

This seems like a very good Spider-Man story. There are three real problems with it:(1) I've been reading Ultimate Spider-Man out of order so it's both missing suspense and setup.(2) The authors tend use too many hard-to-read two-page layouts. (3) It's not really the clone saga. It's more like a "Too Many Spider-Men."

Mijn eerste spider-man, en dan nog meteen een goede ook. Al de specifieke voorgeschiedenis mis ik, al ben ik wel met de basis bekend en heb ik ook de eerste twee films gezien. Ultimate Spider-man is een actualisering van de oudere verhalen, meen ik te hebben begrepen, en dit is alvast heel geslaagd. Benieuwd naar meer.
