Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought I had a good handle on Marvel's Civil War. As always, Marvel gives great art, great action with deeper meaning. I saw parts of the book on their free digital comics and I had to have it. The interaction between Spider-Man and Captain America is spot on, from the first fight to their conference and Spider-Man's resulting decisions.
When Cap began his story, at Spidey's usual good natured ribbing, I was hooked. I never thought of Steve Rogers as a school boy and certainly not a scholar but he was that sickly boy who probably used books for protection. Back there, during the Depression, he found Mark Twain, a favorite of our family, and his memorized statement on patriotism told me where his own spirit came from. And that bit of Twain's amazing words sent me on a search for where it came from and landed me into a half a day's discovery of Mark Twain's quotes and a renewed interest in the Hannibal, Missouri's favorite son. It is amazing how true his statements are even to this day.
This is exactly why I have followed Marvel for all these years. There is always far more to those 'comic books' than just action.

Format: Paperback
Armed with a new costume and having revealed his identity to the public, Spider-Man has even more big decisions coming in the Civil War. In this TPB, Spidey and his family are targeted as he finds himself in the middle of the superhero civil war between the factions of Captain America and Iron Man. What makes this Civil War tie-in important is that this fills a few holes from the main Civil War storyline, including Spidey's switching sides from Iron Man's pro-registration to Captain America's resistence. The only real downside however is that this TPB features a few plot holes itself that will get filled in by reading the main Civil War storyline, as well as a few preceding Spidey and even some Iron Man stories as well. That being said though, writer J. Michael Straczynski makes the most with his script, as well as getting to leave the reader hanging by teasing us with the possible death of someone close to Peter. Ron Garney's art leaves something to be desired as well in some panels, but he does a servicable job nonetheless. All in all, of all the countless Civil War tie-in books, the Amazing Spider-Man chapter is undoubtedly one of the best.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By K. W. Schreiter on October 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
This trade paperback collects Amazing Spider-Man #532-538, written by J. Michael Straczynski and drawn by Ron Garney. Focusing on Peter Parker/Spider-Man's role in the Marvel Universe-encompassing Civil War, the story develops the quasi-paternal relationship between Peter and Tony Stark as the Civil War escalates. Peter's shocking public revelation in issue 533 was the first non-cinematic Spider-Man news in a long time to be covered by mainstream US media. As the conflict intensifies, Peter grows to question his siding with Stark and eventually hides with MJ and Aunt May in a decrepit motel room. The book ends with a cliffhanger that left me eager to read issue 539. Reading the main Civil War TPB is helpful but not essential as there is enough of an independent plot here for those interested only in Spider-Man.

Format: Paperback
Heroes are fighting heroes and Marvel's everyman is stuck in the centre of it all. This tie-in feels organic, since Spider-Man is one of the main players in the Civil War mini-series, but its still just an average Spidey story.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit, as it focuses a lot on Spider-Man as a character and gives him the extra-focus he deserves for being such a vital character in the main Civil War mini. Spidey is characterized well through most of the book, the only part that felt out of place was the unmasking, which did make Spidey a bit irresponsible, though one can argue that MJ and Aunt May influenced him to do this. I was amongst one of the few who thought the unmasking was an interresting idea which opens many possibilities to Spidey's future (even though it stuck around for such a short period of time), but it is not explored in this collection, since this side of the story is explored on the two other spidey titles (Sensational and Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man), which is a shame, because I hoped we'd get some in-depth exploration here.

The inclusion of the Kingpin sub-plot, may feel random, but the Kingpin had threathen to make Spidey pay had he made one mistake, back in Amazing Spider-Man two hundred and something (I think).

The art by Ron Garney gets better at the story progresses, but overall its very competent, my only complaints would be the Mary Jane, at the start of the storyline, because she looks extremely ugly and that some shots of Spidey webslinging look a bit too stiff for such a fluid character as Spider-Man. The action sequences look great tho and so do the backgrounds.

The Civil War series had great stories and flops - this is not a flop. The Spider-man story line is one of the best to read since it digs so deep into the personal life of a character most of us know pretty well. Spidey ends up going back and forth throughout the story which really keeps things interesting. Pick it up if you are a fan of Spidey or the Civil War story.
