For Mark Millar‘s re-imagining of The Avengers as The Ultimates, Bryan Hitch produced some truly over-the-top battle scenes. For the final issue, Hitch created what may be the biggest multi-page fold-out in comics history! Eight – count ’em – eight entire pages of super-mayhem! Now that is awesome.
