Comic News:
Marvel Adds To "Must Have" Collection
By Brian Jacks


Writer Brian Michael Bendis has worked his magic again. Just a few months after taking ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN to the top of the sales charts with the VENOM story arc, Bendis and new regular series artist David Finch have ignited ULTIMATE X-MEN with the first two sold-out chapters of "BLOCKBUSTER", and a new MUST HAVE collection is in the works to help meet demand.

ULTIMATE X-MEN #34 & 35, the first two chapters of the 6-issue story arc focusing on Wolverine and featuring guest-stars SPIDER-MAN, DAREDEVIL and the Ultimates' Black Widow, have both sold-out at Diamond.

In response, the 48-page MARVEL MUST HAVES: ULTIMATE X-MEN #34-35 is available for order immediately and will go on sale August 6th, a week before ULTIMATE X-MEN #36 reaches comic shops on August 13th.

"We run out of superlatives here at Marvel to describe the quality and the buzz that Brian Bendis brings to every project," said Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada, "so the best compliment we can give him for his work on Ultimate X-Men is even accounting for the sales spike "BLOCKBUSTER" showed before it ever went on sale, we had this new MUST HAVE collection in the wings ready to go knowing there would be even MORE readers wanting to jump on board.

"And much of the credit should also go to David Finch. Not only is he doing the best work of his brilliant career on this book, he keeps turning in issue after issue, and ahead of schedule. If readers enjoy on-time books and consistent creators teams, they're in for a treat as Brian and David are planning a healthy run together."

MARVEL MUST HAVE: ULTIMATE X-MEN #34-35 will sport a price tag of $2.99 and will be in stores 8/6.
