A big shadow hung over this year's Ultimate Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The final issue of Age of Ultron revealed that Galactus had slipped through from the Marvel Universe to the Ultimate Universe, but that's not the shadow I'm referring to. Fans have been speculating for the past few weeks that the Galactus story is a way to bring the Ultimate Universe to a dramatic close. The spectre of cancellation hangs over the low-selling line.
The SDCC panel didn't exactly assuage that fear, but nor did Marvel confirm that this was the last -- nay, ultimate -- Ultimate panel. All the talk was about the big man coming to dinner - and about the future of Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales.

The verdict? Uatu the Watcher seems pretty stressed out about what's about to go down.

But... who are the Guardians of the Galaxy? They're actually talking owls from a series of fantasy novels about... no, sorry, my editor is telling me that is not correct. Let's see... the series tells the story of Jack Frost, Santa Claus, the Sandman and... no, I'm getting another note here, hang on... A talking raccoon and a tree? That can't be right.

If the measure of success of the Marvel NOW relaunch campaign is truly how accessible these many decades-old superhero sagas can be made for fresh eyes, then the publisher and its roster of creators deserve whatever praise is coming to them. Some very recent runs notwithstanding,
