Here’s what’s of interest coming out from Marvel for July 2013. Full solicitations are available here. Comics Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #25, $4 Trade paperbacks None. Comments I admit my reading of Marvel’s slacked off lately; thus the lack of “picks.” This includes keeping up with Miles Morales’ book. I’ve been attempting to wait for the trade paperback versions of “Ultimate Comics Spider-Man” in an attempt to save money (by borrowing them from the public library).

Minorities in cartoons: Nick Fury (Ultimate Marvel)

This week’s entry, just in time for the upcoming “Avengers” movie, is Nick Fury. That is, the Ultimate Marvel universe version of Nick Fury, not the long-running Marvel character in mainstream continuity. This version of Nick Fury was introduced in “Ultimate Marvel Team-Up” #5 in 2001, and was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Allred.

New Ultimate Marvel Spider-Man revealed to be biracial teen

No spoilers warning, since this story’s already all over every other website by now… Since its debut in 2000, I admit I haven’t paid a ton of attention to Marvel’s Ultimate line of books. Ultimate Marvel is an alternate universe (to the mainstream Marvel one) that’s meant to be easier to get into, with less history/continuity than the usual Marvel stuff. However, what stories (or story summaries) I’d seen felt too much like regular current superhero books to me, i.e. “grim and gritty”-fied versions of…
