Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

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.

    Too political

    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.

    I don't read a lot of comic books, but I do still read them occa

    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.

    Recommended- not for comic readers

    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.

    Similar and yet differant from the graphic nover it's based on.

    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.

    Nice adaption!

    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!
