    Greeting comic fans.

    I just finished up all the Civil war comics by Marvel.

    For those of you who don't know about Civil War here is a bit of information on the comic and complete GN.

    The Marvel Universe is changing. In the wake of a tragedy, Capitol Hill proposes "The Superhero registration act", requiring all costumed heroes to unmask themselves before the government.

    Divided, the Nations greatest Champions must each decide how to react. A decision that will alter the courses of their lives forever.

    Leading the registration act is Iron Man who wants all heroes to register and work for the government, Opposed is Captian America and he and other heroes go underground (rebels) mean while all the Heroes who are Iron mans side are now hunting all the rogue heroes along with some super criminals that S.H.E.I.L.D has placed on their team.

    All out chaos comes from this division of the Heroes, and a massive battle is going to take place between the New Government Heroes and the Underground Heroes.

    Who will win? Well you will have to read the comics or Graphic novels to find out. I will tell you this. The end will shock you.

    First, I have a serious problem of not really exploring many of the sub forums. I stick mostly to the new posts.

    Secondly, this is an awesome series. I read it in the two book graphic novel version. I absolutely rank this WAY the fuck up there. And I lol'd when Frank Castle joined the rebels and they were all pissed. Castle never pretended to be anyone else and used to work for the Gov't. I want to be that guy one day.

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty good. Although from what I've heard, a lot of comic book fans were less than impressed with it.

    Boy Captian America threw him a beat down tho. I mean castle was right in what he did, i would have capped those guys too.

    I have to admit spidey's new costume kicks some major ass. It did suck that he took his mask off on TV. It was cool how in the end it was the ordinary citizens who stopped the war.

    This comic was one wild ride. I recommend it very highly. Great read if you ask me.

    Ok So I was wandering the Comic aisle of Barnes & Noble tonight and I stumbled on the Marvel Civil war ( I was looking for Marvel Zombies but came up short ). Reading the backs of the Civil war series, I didnt know this thread existed... The Civil war looks extremely bad ass.

    I want to read it, but where do I start?

    Am I supposed to begin with Civil War 1-7? or others? I've looked up the list online and there are quite a large chunk of Marvel Civil War tie ins! Just assuming, I'd guess that I should probably start with ths one:

    CIVIL WAR: THE ROAD TO CIVIL WAR - Marvel Comics Catalog: The Official Site - Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, X-Men, Wolverine and all Marvel Comics and Graphic Novels | Marvel Comics Catalog | Marvel.com

    But I also see it wasnt released 'till Feb 2007 and the Civil War series started in May 06?

    I'm wanting to get back in touch with my marvel comic roots and start burning the midnight oil with my nose buried in the pages. How should I go about doing that with the Civil War?

    Ice you can now find the complete series as a graphic novel. You can also find any tie in's as graphic novels too.
    Just got to the Graphic novels section of your local book store, you can even find them listed on eBay.

    Trying to find them in the comic versions will cost you more in the long run.

    yeah I had planned on getting the Graphic Novel editions, but like I said... where should I start?

    Right now I've got my eyeball on this set on ebay #'s 1-7 of the Civil War for a calm cool 30 bucks. They arent 1st prints or variants... but thats no biggie for me, I just wanna enjoy the contents not try to turn a buck on it.

    Basically from the sounds of it, I'll be fine just getting the 1-7 and then picking up the tie ins later on?

    What an amazing story! With every chapter it only gets better and better until it ends perfectly.

    All I'm going to say is that you KNOW it'll be a good story when you see Captain America riding a jet like a surf board in the first chapter.
