Yes, that’s right, Happy Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk Day, as it’s been exactly one year* since the second, and, thus far, last issue of this proposed six-issue series was released to the eagerly-awaiting public.
So celebrate with me one year of having to repeatedly tell customers “No, I’m sorry, I’m not sure when it will be out.” Celebrate the order numbers for Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk #3 being presented to me for adjustment on several occasions, filling me with some small false hope that it may actually be released. Celebrate the fact that as often as I was asked about the comic in early to mid-’06, I only sporadically get questions about it now…customers usually asking in the context of “Pfffft…typical Marvel!”
And celebrate with me just one more nail in the coffin of comic book consumer confidence. Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk, All-Star Batman, Civil War, Wonder Woman…thanks, guys, for giving me the opportunity to explain your problems to my customers! I couldn’t be happier!
