Good art for most of this, it's an engaging story that works well for the most part. The main ten issues work well and tell a good story. The remaining, supplemental issues which are collected after the main story are a bit less. Some appear to occur before or during the main story while others don't seem to connect as clearly. Still, a good read for Marvel fans.

This Book is an amazing work of art conducted by one of the best writers that MARVEL Comics has to offer. While unrelated to the 2015 Movie that the title could hint at, this comic shows the Epic return of Ultron. Although time travel can be confusing, this book is able to translate in between timelines smoothly and in a way that lets it kept complicated but clean. The art is a fine job and Ultron gets an amazingly evil feel to him although his personality seems undeveloped. Aside from that this comic is a work of art that I enjoyed to the end.

Unfortunately I cannot UNREAD this comic book. When I heard B.M. Bendis was writing and that Bryan Hitch drawing, I was thinking this will be a great ride. Boy, was I disappointed. Marvel no longer seems to be able to keep a consistent team together for a story. Hitch only did the first 5 issues. After he left the art just got progressively worse. This story has so many holes in it(but will admit did not read all the connecting cross overs). I realize Marvel has to make $$$ and cross overs will do that but this was just awful.

The only reason I rate this where it is would have to be the tie-in issues collected after the main event. Those stories vastly outdo the main story, which rates by far as the worst big event in Marvel's recent history. Since the whole thing gets undone by time travel anyway in the end, it's a pointless exercise, written by Brian Bendis, the worst writer in the industry. The man has absolutely no capacity to write characters in their own voices. He doesn't care about continuity or characterization. He gets the concept of Ultron completely wrong, to say the least. Fortunately the only thing the next Avengers movie is taking from this is the title, not the dreadfully bad story. Artist Bryan Hitch doesn't help matters; his artistic style tends to be murky, and he seems unable to keep to a deadline, so large parts of the main event had to rely on other artists, all of whom outdo Hitch. Age of Ultron as an event was a monumental, meaningless disaster. Why Bendis continues to get writing assignments baffles me.

First of I expected better Artwork from this title & the Storyline could have been tweeked somemore.

Frankly disappointed at the lack of details that could have been taken on Ultron, which is an amazing villain. The way the story plays out the role of Ultron could have been filled by literally any villain in the Marvel Universe, with absolutely no impact in the story.
The other thing I found disappointing was that this was yet another "travel to the past to prevent this" storyline, with no originality to it, and the knowledge that they can (and do) kill every single character off panel and it will all be undone by the end of the series makes the deaths meaningless.
All in all, not the best Marvel Now! has to offer.
