You asked for it -BIG BANG UNIVERSE is back with a momentous third issue , and WHAT an issue – an 80 page Giant featuring ULTIMAN, America’s Greatest Hero, in his most fantastic adventures ever, with an all-star line-up of guest heroes and super villains! First up is the three-part novel, “Ultiman of the Atom” in which ULTIMAN is transported to the nucleus of an Ultranium atom, the radioactive element that gives him his powers. There he discovers a futuristic civilization of people with super powers like his own and falls in love! Next, the Ultimate Human Being finds himself in a slugfest with VESUVIUS, the Human Volcano who is trying to break INTO a maximum security prison! Then ULTIMAN finds himself refereeing a fight between an irate VENUS, Goddess of Love and War, and the super paparazzi known as SHUTTERBUG, who made the mistake of snapping a picture of the Goddess when she was topless! Finally, ULTIMAN confronts a caped and cowled predator sneaking through the night that turns out to be the infamous arsonist known as DIABLO, come to wreak havoc and raise hell in Empire City! Plus – – the KNIGHT WATCHMAN comic strip adventure “The Crime Chef!” by Chris Ecker and Roger McKenzie. All this within a stellar, vintage 1960’s style ULTIMAN cover by the great Jeff Weigel. It’s the “classic” approach to superhero comics done by a cadre of creators who love them.
