Mark Millar has been one of the key writers for Marvel Comics in the 21st century. His first major contribution to Marvel was with Ultimate X-Men. Next up was The Ultimates, a new rendering of the Avengers that was to continue building on the success of the Ultimate line. He and artist Bryan Hitch pulled it all off in spades: The Ultimates and its sequel, Ultimates 2, were ensconced at the top of the sales charts every month; what's more, they were critical successes, as well. Amid building a small library of Millarworld indie comic books -- including the titles Chosen and Wanted, the latter of which was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Angelina Jolie -- he managed to write Civil War, the epic seven-issue miniseries that definitively reshaped the landscape of Marvel's heroes

Some pretty clever storytelling from one of comics' masters of violence and twists. The story is a bit strange at first, and it does feel a bit like Marvel just threw in some vampires to capitalize on the craze, but when the action starts the story goes nuts. This volume includes much of the stuff that fans have come to expect from the Ultimate line, like permanent deaths of main characters, irreversible decisions, and surprise appearances from familiar characters.
