CBR Review: The Ultimates #1

I recently reviewed The Ultimates #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Hickman walks a fine balance between jumping right into plots that had their foundation laid in the shorts he contributed to in Ultimate Fallout and making sure that anyone who skipped that mini-series can follow along fine. For the most part, he pulls it off by rehashing the three big global threats that first popped up in Ultimate Fallout #5, albeit progressed by a day so it isn’t a simple retread. At the heart of the issue is a simple plot: the world is falling apart around Nick Fury and he doesn’t know what to do exactly. However, until the end of the issue, that may get a little lost under a lot of details, sadly."
