    Sadly a too brief mourning I got this in its single comic book issues, but I chose this edtion to be able to make a better overall review.

The first issue was the best of the event, due it indeed focused about what it was supposed to be this story, to show how the characters were affected by the death of Ultimate Peter Parker. There is a powerful scene of a little girl who Spider-Man saved some years before. Too bad that they use the rest of the issues to any other stuff, but Ultimate Spider-Man. While the title is “Ultimate Fallout”, also it’s part of the title “Spider-Man No More”, even you can appreciate the cover art and therefore, you should to expect to be about him and his related characters and his themes. But, sadly it wasn’t the case. OTHER STUFF BUT ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN The second issue still covers some important moments of the Ultimate Peter Parker's funeral, however too soon, they started to cover other stuff not related and some clumsy stuff like the Heroes' Heaven of Asgard, that honestly I think that it wasn’t quite not necessary at all. On the third issue they totally lose the purpose of the event (at least taking in account the title of it) and they invested the pages on characters totally unrelated to Ultimate Spider-Man and his inner universe. On the fourth issue, you can see a first appearance of the next Ultimate Spider-Man, that I think they should wait to show this a little more, I can understand the concept of “The King is dead, long live to the King”, but they should wait at least to the last issue in the event or even better in a totally apart event and keep paying a little of respect to the Ultimate Peter Parker. But taking in account that the event was a scam to show a bunch of stuff totally unrelated to Ultimate Spider-Man, I supposed that it was expecting too much. On the fifth issue is even worse than before, since they keep showing totally unrelated characters of the title. If I am reading something titled “Spider-Man No More”, I expected to be reading about Ultimate Aunt May, Ultimate Mary Jane or even Ultimate J. Jonah Jameson, but nope, they show Ultimate Quicksilver, Ultimate Iron Man, the Ultimate X-Men. Geez! Finally, the sixth issue, of course it wasn’t about Ultimate Spider-Man at all, it was about Ultimate Captain America and his Ultimates’ team and the outcome of his battle against Ultimate Nick Fury and his own team. Also appearing the Ultimate X-Men. Again, it was a shame and quite a fraud to title this event “Spider-Man No More”, yes he wasn’t no more, literally, but it wasn’t supposed to be like this, it’s supposed to be the mourning time for a hero, for Ultimate Peter Parker, and not filling the event with a lot of stuff unrelated to the title of Ultimate Spider-Man.

    Death of Spider-Man fallout did not go as I expected. Sure it had some things like the funeral along with grieving Aunt May, Gwen Stacy, and Mary Jane Watson... ...outside of that it just went to random stories (including some creepy Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch moments), bad artwork, and the first time Miles Morales tries to be Spider-Man. Spider-Man's death had a volume worthy of it, but the fallout volume was less than stellar. They couldn't even give the readers one entire volume to grieve Death of Spider-Man fallout did not go as I expected.

    Peter Parker is dead and the Ultimate universe is grieving. A devastated Aunt May struggles to get through it with the help of Gwen Stacy and Tony Stark. Mary Jane tries to lessen her pain by pinning the blame publicly on Nick Fury. J. Jonah Jameson cant find the words to express himself in his newspaper. Spideys younger super powered friends like Kitty Pryde, Johnny Storm and Bobby Drake react with a mix of anger and anguish. Captain America, who was a real dick to Peter shortly before his Peter Parker is dead and the Ultimate universe is grieving.

Jonah Jameson can’t find the words to express himself in his newspaper. Spidey’s younger super powered friends like Kitty Pryde, Johnny Storm and Bobby Drake react with a mix of anger and anguish. Captain America, who was a real dick to Peter shortly before his death, is wracked with guilt. As for Nick Fury…. Well, who knows what Nick Fury is really thinking? And there’s a new young man wearing a Spider-Man outfit. This collection goes in two different directions. The far superior parts give us realistic and painful stories about grief. While the world belatedly recognizes that Spider-Man was a hero and honors his memory, the ones who actually knew Peter Parker and what a special person he was are mourning deeply. The other stories focus more on new larger plot developments like Tony Stark being invited to join a secret club of ultra-wealthy people who want to make the world better, and Quicksilver pitching a pretty horrible plan to a powerful CEO. While we get a glimpse of the new Spider-Man, we don’t really learn anything about him other than he’s named Miles Morales. I wish the entire collection would have stuck with the reaction to Peter’s death. That’s the truly powerful stuff here. For example, there’s a part where Aunt May is at the funeral and meets a little girl in the crowd of thousands that has gathered, and she tells May how Spider-Man saved her from a fire. If you read that and it doesn’t hit you hard, then I’d advise you to get psychologically tested immediately because you’re probably a sociopath.

    4.5 stars Oh my God. The scene with the little girl!? I literally did that chokey thing you do when you get that big lump in your throat. Wow. I was embarrassed for myself, to be quite honest. I feel a little better after reading some of the other reviews on this one, 'cause evidently I'm not the only one. Fallout is a pretty darn good love letter to Peter Parker. Although, I don't agree that it would be better if he didn't come back. Sorry, guys. I stopped reading this after they killed him off. I 4.5 stars Oh my God. The scene with the little girl!?

I suppose I should've given Morales a shot, but I never really cared enough to try. Everyone has their favorites, and Parker was mine. Anyhoo, this wasn't quite a five star read for me, because some of the stuff with Pietro and Richards felt ramdom. Although, that's probably because I'm not invested in the Ultimate universe enough to understand what they had to do with anything. P.S. Wanda and Pietro? Gah. Still fucking creepy! I'm not sure what was going on With Mr. Fantastic, but I vaguely remember reading something about him going over to the dark side. I guess I should try to find some of these back issues, and try to catch up...? Most of the volume focused on the people closest to Peter, though. And that's where this volume really shines. Read it.

    Originally published as a six issue miniseries titled Ultimate Comics Fallout (note the lack of Spider-Man in the title), this was apparently intended to act as closure and foreshadowing for a lot of major developments in the Ultimate universe. Unfortunately, I really don't care about anything that happens in the Ultimate universe outside the pages of Spider-Man. It's a good thing that at least half of what's here is related to Spider-Man, and is written very well. There is a lot going on, Originally published as a six issue miniseries titled Ultimate Comics Fallout (note the lack of Spider-Man in the title), this was apparently intended to act as closure and foreshadowing for a lot of major developments in the Ultimate universe. Unfortunately, I really don't care about anything that happens in the Ultimate universe outside the pages of Spider-Man. It's a good thing that at least half of what's here is related to Spider-Man, and is written very well. There is a lot going on, though. Several writers worked on this trade, each apparently writing what they knew best. Bendis on the most directly Spider-Man pages, and so forth. Several different artists, too, I suppose to keep the look consistent for the different books represented here. Marvel could (and probably has) reprint the Rogue scene in an Ultimate X-Men book without it looking out of place. I'm pleased to say that not one section was badly written or illustrated. I might not have cared about what was going on, but it wasn't painful to read, in any way. Does this change my mind about avoiding the rest of the Ultimate books? Not exactly, but I won't rule it out in the future. But what's really important, and why I imagine most people are reading this trade in the first place, are the reactions to Peter's death. No surprise, these are largely realistic, wrenching, and, surprisingly underplayed. I'm talking about J. Jonah Jameson unable to finish even the first sentence of a tribute to Peter. Or Tony Stark, expressing his grief through what he can offer to Aunt May, his money. Or Thor's satisfied certainty that Peter is now in Valhalla. It's easy, and cheap, to rely on emotional manipulation, but this volume almost entirely avoids that. I'll give them the scene with the little girl, because she's effectively standing in for all the strangers Peter saved who never had a chance to thank him. But the scenes with the established characters are emotional in a way that's real, authentic, and exactly as I'd expect those characters to mourn. The new Spider-Man, Miles Morales, shows up about halfway through. It's a very short scene, just a tease of the character. Enough to get me interested, at least, and that's all I ask. Obviously, I'll be going on to read Miles's adventures. I've learned to trust Bendis at least that far. As a farewell to Peter Parker, this volume is very effective. Not just with providing a venue to mourn him, but also with driving in the fact that this is real. Peter is dead now, and he's not coming back in this universe. For me, that's a relief. Bringing Peter back from the dead would rob his death of any meaning. Bendis put in the hard work to make it meaningful, to make us accept that it's real, and it would be a terrible thing for Marvel to betray that later.

    The stuff that deals with the characters dealing with the death of Spider-man/Peter in this is great. The rest, which is setting up for the relaunch that would come after, not so much, because a lot of it heavily on what happened outside of the Spider-man book. But the good stuff makes up for it

    Death of Spider-Man Fallout, it is, as the title suggests, the afterward of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man: Death of Spider-Man, one of the biggest, most shocking comicbook events in recent memory. Every other superheroes' shock and severe reactions to Spider-Man a.k.a Peter Parker's untimely and unbelievable death (!), along with of course the closest people in Peter Parker's life. Each one dealt with the loss in his or hers own way. Truly heartbreaking, very very emotional, and so much sadness.

Even more so because Marvel's 'Ultimate Universe'-version of the Spider-Man was only a young school-going teenager, what wonderful, lovably endearing, great kid he was... so much potential :'( This volume depicted those heartfelt emotions very beautifully, using just the right amount of understated sorrowful monologues from various characters' point of view without going overboard, in giving us the absolutely perfect epilogue the death of one of the greatest superheroes ever deserves. Each chapter had a different style of illustration, and all the artworks worked and matched in regard with the different somber moods seamlessly. An impressive ending to a great series and an even greater hero.

    If there's one thing comic book writers usually mail is the remembrance and funeral of a fallen hero.

    Reading through the Marvel universe is like reading through a bag of strings, thoroughly agitated until they're a tangled mess. You pick up a thread here and you end up reading through all sorts of attached strings, or you miss bits and pieces. That's how I ended up reading "Fallout", which is about what happens after Peter Parker's death, when everyone from other superheroes to X-Men mourn his passing. This is all probably much more touching if you've read things such as the X-Men series, but if Reading through the Marvel universe is like reading through a bag of strings, thoroughly agitated until they're a tangled mess.

This is all probably much more touching if you've read things such as the X-Men series, but if not... well. It's somewhat superficial and feels rushed, despite being a whole volume, because there are a great number of characters involved and while there's a general feel of mourning, there's little space in which to breathe and take it all in. Characters don't get left alone with their thoughts much and it feels like we're watching the most intense moments, but they don't have a background against which that impact would be better felt.

    This was a nice ending to the series, although the parts that strayed a little were off the mark. I had to write a review for this because of one simple thing: I am 100% convinced that the run of Ultimate Spider-Man that spans about a decade is the best singular run in comic book history. The writing is great. This series is one of the most consistent as far as making me laugh, and at the same time the softer moments are handled just right. The writing does so much to help even a hardened nerdo This was a nice ending to the series, although the parts that strayed a little were off the mark. I had to write a review for this because of one simple thing: I am 100% convinced that the run of Ultimate Spider-Man that spans about a decade is the best singular run in comic book history. The writing is great. This series is one of the most consistent as far as making me laugh, and at the same time the softer moments are handled just right. The writing does so much to help even a hardened nerdo like myself understand why it sometimes sucks to be Spider-Man. For the first time ever, I'm sold on the idea that being Spider-Man isn't always totally awesome. The movies make it seem totally awesome, right? Okay, maybe he's always late for class. Who gives a shit!? I was always late for class, and that was simply because I was dumb. Or maybe I was dumb because I was late for class...no, it was definitely the first one. Believe me, the extra 5 minutes in Senior World Studies spent drawing the rivers on the African continent wouldn't have made me into a winner. The art? Mark Bagley kills it. His Spider-Man is fantastic. And he can also actually draw people too, ones that have different faces and can be told apart. The trick to drawing Spider-Man is to express the action and to convey the idea that Spider-Man is almost creepy in the way that he moves around, which is part of why people just hate him. Bagley does a perfect job, and it's no small surprise that the writer/artist team beat the record for the longest continuous collaboration on a mainstream Marvel book, which was previously set by none other than Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, two legends. And for being as long as it is, spanning 10 years, there really aren't the kinds of duds we expect and allow in comics. What's the longest run of Incredible Hulk? MAYBE a year? Batman? A few months? Superman? 13/22 pages? Keeping up this level of goodness for a decade is absolutely incredible. Finally, because the storyline is contained within these volumes, ALL available in trade paperback, a person could pick up Ultimate Spider-Man vol. 1 and read the entire series without screwing around with a bunch of crossover nonsense, getting confused by unexplained outside characters, having multiple timelines and events confusing everything, and all the general craziness that comes with comics. This is a full series, beginning to end, and this is the superhero comic I would recommend to anyone that just never enjoyed a superhero comic. You can get issues 1-39 in this one volume http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Spider... Which I recommend that you all do.

    The Peter Parker eulogy is well-done but short - though the scenes with May Parker were brilliant. This though is pretty much a sideline to the "reboot" of the UltimateU that this book is setting up. Don't get me wrong - the events, tensions and new intrigues that are introduced here sound like some awesome plot threads. Nearly everyone is given a new emotional dimension on which future storylines will have extra levels of satisfying reading.

Spencer is the real surprise here - I've never heard of him before, but based on his writing in this book he's the next Hickman in terms of writing chops. Spencer's contributions stand up to the two powerhouses. Let's just hope that Marvel keeps Jeph Loeb's greasy ham fists off the UltimateU for the foreseeable future. As to the art, what can I say? Some of Marvel's best talents are working here, and while I usually bitch about an ensemble book like this where the art team changes every few pages, it works here. I'm especially impressed with the female talent - good on Marvel for bringing on interesting new looks that have just as much right to wow me visually as all the regular dudes.

    The bookends are okay. The front end better than the last, though. The rest of it is just meh. Meh to eh, even. Felt the characters should have been allowed to come to grips with what they'd just lived through and with such heavy issues mentioned, there should have been some page time dedicated to working though those thoughts. Instead, all we get is a really long promo for the other Ultimate line titles. Zero depth. Peter deserved a better send off than this.

    This comic reminds me of the one with the fallout from Captain America's death. We see various characters,super and not, and their reactions to Spiderman's heroic death and the revelation of his identity. The tragic figure is of course,his aunt May,who has to weather that storm while grieving for her fallen nephew. It was a compact story and I would be interested to see where it leads,as Miles Morales takes on the Spiderman name and suit.

Aunt May, Mary Jane, Kitty, Gwen, and all of Peter’s friends are mourning his passing as the world learns that Peter Parker was Spider-Man. With the unrest, there is opportunity for some while others begin to play the blame game in Spider-Man’s death. A new Spider-Man surfaces with Peter’s powers, but who is he? Written by Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman, and Nick Spencer and illustrated by a number of artists, Ultimate Fallout deals with the events following the Death of Spider-Man storyline in the Ultimate Universe. Ultimate Fallout #4 also served as an introduction to Miles Morales the new Spider-Man and star of the current Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man. Ultimate Fallout is pretty much a collection of short stories. Some of them are a direct result of Death of Spider-Man with events occurring at the funeral and with people watching the funeral, but many of them also are seemingly unrelated for the casual Ultimate reader. The stories involving Mr. Fantastic, Iron Man, and Quicksilver don’t really connect with me and I would have rather had more funeral stories and reactions from friends and family of Peter Parker. The introduction of the new Spider-Man Miles Morales is brief, but the character has proven entertaining. This section of the comic was also reused in Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #4, and the rest of the stories from Ultimate Fallout #4 were reprinted in Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man Volume 1. One problem the series is has is that it can be a bit overly dramatic. The first few Bendis stories tried way too hard to be sentimental and he tries to let the pictures tell the tale with lots of non-dialogue boxes…too many. I know that the Ultimate line has lasted on slower paced stories with a flashier look, but I want more story. The other problem I have is with the last panel of the story. I don’t see Fury breaking down in front of anybody. He might have the moment in private, but it wouldn’t happen in front of Mary Jane or anyone else. It reminded me of the post-9-11 Amazing Spider-Man issue that had the super-villains like the Kingpin and Dr. Doom crying at Ground Zero…yes, it might have provided a good image, but it is unrealistic, and it instantly zaps you out of the story. Ultimate Fallout is so-so. It should have been better since it is a send-off to a great character. Readers will probably never see the “real” Spider-Man die, so this series is almost a What If? for readers. I always wanted to know how these people would react learning the identity and the death of someone who has always protected them. I wanted this feeling really conveyed and it didn’t happen.

    In this volume we get to see everyone dealing with their feelings regarding Peter's death. We also get to see a hint of the new Spider-Man in town. On the one hand everyone's sadness starts to feel palpable and it's kind of a tough book. On the other hand we spend such a short amount of time with everyone that I felt like I wanted more info on everyone. I am definitely very curious about the new Spider-Man (who is like a year old at this point). I'm waiting for the book on ILL at the library.

    A good good bye to Peter Parker in the Ultimate universe of Marvel Comics. I have to admit the scene with May Parker and the little girl got me choked up. Spiderman/Peter Parker was the key stone of the Marvel Ultimate universe. His passing does not go unnoticed or unobserved. And I can't help to but feel the reference of the people of New York as they say their good byes. I do wonder how long this universe will remain without Peter. Hope Miles is up to the role.

    A book that I like even less on a reread. Bendis chapters do a great job of bookending Spider-Man, while Hickmans Nick Fury finale nails it. The rest of the book is much more transparently a setup for v3 of Ultimate Comics, and as a result, it just doesn't fit with the rest of the narrative. Unless you're specifically returning to those series, you'll find yourself skipping over that content to get to the "good" stuff. A book that I like even less on a reread.

    This is a fine preview comic, I guess. If you wanted a preview of all the Ultimate Comics. But preview comics are bad by definition. I mean, I don't remember the last time I read a good preview comic. They have to be so short as to make the tease work. But then no one would ever package them.

    Fallout from Peter's death (Not a spoiler if its in the title) is shown here in multiple snippets of how different characters are dealing with the event. Some of the segments are off the charts amazing (Aunt May/Captain America & Mart Jane/Nick Fury). Some are at the other end of that spectrum (Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch & Tony Stark/Rich Guy club) as they were more about setting up the next wave of Ultimate books. The series would have been better served by being cut in half.

Overall, there were too many boring, uninteresting stories that didn't tie close enough to Peter.

    Peter Parker is dead and we witness how this affects his family and friends. I kept getting confused when other storylines were interjected without explanation. Reed Richards went mad and got sent to the Negative Zone? What does this have to do with Spider-Man? I have no idea and it was never explained. This graphic novel does set me up to want to read more about Miles Morales, the new Spider-Man, who was introduced in the last issue of the collection.

    This arc is comics at their worst: flashy art but no substance; countless teases but no movement or resolution; vague references to ancillary characters and events with no purpose other than to wink at the reader. I read this to see Miles Morales' first appearance but it comes out of nowhere with zero relation to anything else going on and then he disappears just as fleetingly-- again with no payoff or resolution. I'm sorry I wasted my time.

    Anything involved with Peter Parker's funeral is five stars. True to all the characters involved any way sadder than anything that ever happens in comics. It works on every level and Bendis didn't leave anything on the table. The rest of it is just an okay survey of the rest of the Ultimate Marvel universe that mostly feels like an effort to fill out the remaining three and a half issues of this limited series.

    This was kind of all over the shop but it still gave me some closure and a lottttt of tears over the first 3 issues. But there was some stuff I felt like that didnt need to be in a spider man comic? Like the X-Men foreshadow stuff? Pietro and Wanda being incesty? Nah i dont care about that son. Just give me the tasty wrap up trade for a series I absolutely have loved. (Which it mostly did).

    Not entertaining at all. I'm a huge Spidey fan, but even I wasn't impressed with the mourning story of Peter's death. They could've made it much better with all the emotions involved, but it was a flop

    It's amazing how one death can affect so many heroes, even the mightiest feel the death of one smart-mouthed teen spider-man. I hope Tony gets his head out of his grief and takes down the money people who want to rule everything.
