Overview

The epic story that blows the Marvel Universe apart! Iron Man and Captain America: two core members of the Avengers, the world's greatest super hero team. When a tragic battle blows a hole in the city of Stamford, killing hundreds of people, the U.S. government demands that all super heroes unmask and register their powers. To Tony Stark - Iron Man - it's a regrettable but necessary step. To Captain America, it's an unbearable assault on civil liberties. So begins the Civil War. Based on the smash hit graphic novel - over half a million copies have sold in print and digital formats!

Editorial Reviews

For superheroes, it's a day of full disclosure. In the aftermath of a deadly tragedy, high Washington officials are proposing a Super Hero Registration Act that requires that all these legendary extra-talented fighters unmask themselves. For some superheroes, this a no-brainer; for others, an unthinkable abomination. What happens when in the course of superhuman events, you have to make an ultimate decision? A graphic novel adaptation that raises the ante.

If you've read the Civil War Comics or Graphic Novel, please do not buy this book. There are events specific to the novel that, in all honesty, destroy what was established in the comics. There are a few references made that date the book, which couldn't have happened due to the comics coming out in 2005. If you've never read the comics, this is a great read. If you've read the comics, leave it at that.

I don't read a lot of comic books, but I do still read them occasionally. That being said, I went into reading this having only read the trade paperback of the Marvel "Civil War" a few years ago. And I thought that Stuart Moore's novelization of it was great. I was suprised how well written this was and how Mr. Moore's frequent references to familiar items and themes such as iPhones, Jolt Cola, and the "Occupy" movement really helped ground a story about superheroes in reality. I think that being somewhat familiar with the various superheroes helped me visualize them in my head, but I wouldn't go so far as to call it a prerequisite. Fun read. Great book. I hope that Marvel continues their prose line, as they've certainly set the bar high with this first entry.

Similar and yet differant from the graphic nover it's based on. Several cast members viewpoints keep it fresh. Overall, nice companion to the original.

I just got back into reading comics and I saw this at my store. Heard a lot of good things about the Civil War story arc and to find it in a novelization was too good to pass up. Translating panels of comics to prose is a hard task but Moore pulls it off, the story flowed great, never missed a beat and kept me entertained throughout (almost finishing it in one sitting). Not saying the book is gold, it has its moments of character goofs or structure issues but it accomplished what it set out to do. Retell a powerful emotionally driven story to a new audience. Its definitely got me juiced to read the graphic novels now and to see what happens next!

Not nearly as good as some of the Wolverine or X-Men novels done in years past. The author's political agenda is pretty obvious throughout, not suprising in an election year. Just sad that Marvel could not stay above it all. This novel does not follow the comic story line but is similar.
