    An excerpt of the Perez interview about Break-Thru from The Malibu Sun #32:

    "From the drawing point of view, some characters are obviously more fun to draw than others. Mantra, the poster girl of the Ultraverse, is the only page where I inked myself."

    Though sales of the Ultraverse would start to fall from month after month, the comics were still looked upon as fun reading. When characters crossed over into other books, a general sense of adding to the characters' continuity was considered relevant to the story rather than looking at the crossover as a way to boost sagging sales. Malibu's first company-wide crossover "Break-Thru" was not launched simply as a marketing tool, but introduced readers to plots only glimpsed upon in the regular titles, plotting that had been conceived upon in the creator's 'bible', helping to flesh out where the Ultra's origins had come from.

    The writers would also face stress from its editors in the form of flavor-of-the-month pencillers. "I know I would have not chosen certain people (editors) wanted as artists," Hudnall said. "(Editors) begged me to accept certain pencillers that they wanted as the artists. They begged me to accept certain pencillers that did not work out. I should have stuck by my instincts and said no." Some of the artists whose drawings would grace the pages of the Ultraverse include comic book mainstays Joe Maduriera, Mike Wieringo, Terry Dodson, and George Perez.
