The penultimate issue, and, well, it's a weird one.

One of the last few remaining issues before this series ends with #6. Has a rather striking monochrome cover by Chris Stevens, which I missed before because I didn't notice the preview was out.

Well, the comic's already been cancelled, but there are still four issues to go...

According to CBR, Ultimate FF is due to be cancelled after issue #6, most likely down to poor sales.

Damn, that's a real bummer - I liked the writing and was really eager to see where Fialkov was going with Doom's return, but I doubt he's got the time left to resolve much of anything now. I feel like the terrible choice of artists really strangled this book's chances - it was always going to be hard for a new Ultimate verse book to get sales, and with that kind of very acquired-taste art it really didn't have a hope.

Oh, well, I guess at least that solves my problem of whether I can afford to start picking up Agent of Asgard. Sigh.

ETA: someone just linked this tweet from Fialkov:

Sad to say that UFF is finished with issue 6, and due to my illness last month, my last issue is 5. Heartbroken but extremely grateful.

Which gives us even less chance of a proper resolution. A real shame. :(

An interview with Loki: Agent of Asgard writer Al Ewing mentions an upcoming Doom appearance in issue #6:

CV: Loki will be meeting Doctor Doom in the upcoming issue, and both characters were teased in the upcoming AXIS event. What can we expect from this meeting?

AE: We can expect a clash of the titans - two of the most iconic villains of the Marvel Universe, both trying to be better, each seeing the other as the bad guy. As Fantastic Four readers will know, Doom - assisted by Valeria Richards, one of the few people he has any time for - is trying his hand at altruism. So there are some definite thematic links between Doom and Loki right now - unfortunately, Doom thinks that one sure-fire way to do good for the world is to take Loki out of it. And he's one of the few mortals on the planet with the smarts and the ability to kill our favorite trickster god off.


Sounds promising! I haven't been reading Agent of Asgard, though I like the look of the scans I've seen, but I know and love Al Ewing's writing from his 2000AD work.

Doom gets another brief cameo in the latest Fantastic Four (it double-shipped this month, so we're now up to issue five).

This series continues to be a very promising start, and I'm definitely eager for more.

CBR has the lettered preview for Ultimate FF #2. Still liking the writing but really unimpressed with the art.

Unexpected cameo of Doom! Just a tiny one, so I won't bother recapping/reviewing the whole issue.
