I got a package of these the other day from Marvel, which I guess means it was published sometime in February. It collects all 12 issues of NEXTWAVE, which were previously released in two 6-issue collections, THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT and I KICK YOUR FACE. Sadly, I wasn’t consulted about the title of this "Ultimate Collection." Otherwise I might have called it KICK SPLODE or WE KILL BEARS FOR YOU or something. Anyway. I presume this is the dominant collection now, as the other two were released a good two or three years ago.
This book won awards, and was singled out for praise as a book for young adults by an American library association. God only knows why.
