in the wake of NYCC…

i’m still confused.

not just about what the heck DC Comic’s Final Crisis was all about, either.

but about the thought processes of the Marvel editorial staff.

in brief:

Marvel’s Ultimate universe (Earth-1610) is currently in the throes of the Ultimatum miniseries/crossover event. it has been known for a while that the only book to be continued after the event was to be Ultimate Spider-Man, and even that was to be “rebooted” with a new number one issue.

what’s confusing to me is that Marvel has decided to make the Ultimate universe even more distinct (which, honestly, i thought they were) by publishing them under a new imprint “Ultimate Comics.”

where this gets silly is in the resulting names for the new comics spinning out of the event:

Ultimate Comics Ultimate Spider-Man
Ultimate Comics Ultimate Avengers
Ultimate Comics New Ultimates

makes me want to chug some Mountain Dew and go for a hardcore mountain bike ride. or something.
