Am I the only Ultimate Spider-Man addict around here? I've been collecting them for the past couple of years.

They start the Spider-Man mythos over at the start and really modernize it with Peter Parker a 15 year old kid.

If you have any interest in Spider-Man or comic books, I really recommend these. They're well written and the artwork is terrific.

I've only heard good things about the Ultimate line. Unfortunately, a few years ago, I downsized my pull list and stopped getting anything Marvel. After hearing all the good stuff about it and loving both the movies, I wish I had gotten into this title. Oh, well... there's always eBay...

The only complaints I've really heard voiced over this (well, the ones I give credence to; fanboys are almost always vocally negative about *something*) were that it was billed as getting away from continuity-heavy story lines. It was pretty obvious by the second storyline that they were just forging their own continuity.
That being said, it's a pretty good continuity. I've enjoyed Bendis's work on that title (when I was borrowing the trades from an associate at work), and on Daredevil, and Powers.

I've been collecting the Ultimate X-men line (In the trade paperback format, so I get it in chunks). However, I picked up the Ultimates trade paperback #1, and thought it blew chunks.
Though they really ought to label it as Ultimate Wolverine; it really is all about Wolvie (in a pretty good way, and the rest of the group is well-handled).
