Anyway, as you guys may know already, Ultimates 3 will be in shops in December. Marvel will be releasing something of an appetiser in two weeks though, called Ultimates Saga which is sort of a recap book for Ultimates 1 and Ultimates 2, but also acts as an intro to Ultimates 3!
And it's art by Travis Charest, who's hyperdetailed pencils thrilled me all those years ago when he worked on WildCats. OoOOo!

From the personal files of Tony Stark comes this never before seen look at the history of the Ultimates-and a sneak peek of their future-in Ultimates Saga! Featuring the jaw-dropping return of superstar artist Travis Charest in four brand new interior pages, along with some of renowned Ultimates artist Bryan Hitch's most powerful moments from his landmark run, and a new cover by Mark Brooks, this is the book that will prepare you for Ultimates 3!
Every spy has his secrets, and Nick Fury is no different. As America's top-ranking espionage expert, just imagine what skeletons Nick has lurking in his closet! What really happened behind the scenes of America's premiere super hero strike force? That's what Tony Stark wants to know!
As Stark assumes control of S.H.I.E.L.D., he quickly discovers that leading an international super-team is not all it's cracked up to be, even for a man of his power and genius. Just what does the future hold for the billionaire and for the Ultimates? As he begins studying Nick Fury's personal files on past Ultimates activities, Tony finds that maybe their actions were not always as altruistic as he suspected. And the deeper he delves into the mysteries he unlocks in Fury's journals, the more he begins to question just want he's gotten himself into by assuming control of the The Ultimates.
While recapping Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's amazing five year run the The Ultimates Volume 1 and 2, the Ultimates Saga also sets up the action in Ultimates 3, by providing a unique new perspective on the events the team has fought and lived through. New revelations and insights are brought to light as the team must now come to terms with what truly lies ahead for them all. With Ultimates 3 around the corner, this is your chance to get caught up on one of the most groundbreaking superhero epics ever, along with brand new art by Travis Charest-and it's only in Ultimates Saga!
