This book included all seven issues as advertised but I was wanting it to include the part where Captain America gets assassinated as well. This book is a vital template in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where in "Phase 3" Marvel is going to start the Civil War story with the third Captain America movie.
I liked the storyline but it had a very sad ending where Captain America just tells his fellow resistors to just stand down and give up to the government. That is not the American way! Because this storyline crossed over into so many other Marvel comic book titles, you really don't get the full Civil War experience, but for someone who is just trying to keep up with the back story of where Marvel is going in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), then this is the book for you.
This is definitely a good Spider-Man story, and it stands alone very well. Of course, you can read the entire "Civil War" arc by buying the Civil War book and the other "Civil War" stories, like this one. I'm not a huge fan of crossover events, but this is just plain, good storytelling. Spider-Man has to choose between staying loyal to Iron Man and the laws of the land or joining Captain America in fighting against what could be perceived as tyranny. I liked it. ****
This book is chock-full of shocking scenes and climactic battles - all gorgeously rendered by the talented hand of Steve McNiven -one of the best pencillers in the biz. Steve gives his illustrations a very life-like and realistic appearance. His characters have a powerful presence on the page, and (I know this sounds strange, but it's true!) the clothing and costumes they wear look more credible and true-to-life than any I've seen drawn by any other comic book artist! He's very, very good at what he does, and the colorists on the book just knock it out of the park, too.
This book is a fun story to read, is beautiful to look at, and has long-lasting repercussions that affect the entire Marvel universe in hige ways for the next several years that followed this event. This is an excellent book to read (a must-read for comic fans), and this particular format is the best available. The hardcover edition comes with many reprinted bonuses, including a cover gallery, sketches, a press release surrounding the event, and a script of the story. I am very happy to own this book and I never hesitate to recommend this to friends of mine that enjoy comic book stories. It is one of my all-time favorite Marvel books, and I strongly suggest you check it out some time!
I did get it because I knew there was going to be a movie about it, and for once I wanted to know something going into the movie rather than coming out knowing it. As far as plots go, it was good.
(People say that Spiderman was NEEDED for the movie, but if anything I thought the Fantastic Four played a much bigger role than he did. But I'm glad he's in, Spidey's my favorite of Marvel)
