Calling this collection "War Crimes" is really a misnomer. The actual bulk of the collection is made up of the Underworld miniseries, which is only barely related to Civil War at all. This may be why it's one of the best things I've read in the Civil War line. It's about a guy named Jackie Dio, fresh out of prison and trying to get back into his life as a made man, now basically impossible without powers. And Dio hates powers. It's fun, solid writing, that owes more than a bit to Criminal.

I didn't like this nearly as much as I liked the other comics in the Civil War series. I think it's because I'm not familiar with a lot of the Marvel villains, so most of this went over my head.

That was kind of a rip-off. I'm just glad that I rented it from the library instead of paying for it. This collects Underworld (whatever that is) #1-5 and Civil War: War Crimes, which is like two or three issues. Underworld had literally nothing to do with the Superhuman Registration Act. Those last two or three issues with Wilson Fisk/the Kingpin featured Jackie Dio/Underworld for a very small plot point. I had my suspicions that (spoiler for Civil War: The Amazing Spider-Man) (view spoiler) ...more

This is the worst Civil War book I’ve read so far.
Two thirds of the book deal with a tough guy who just got out of jail and his transformation into the villain Underworld. It has some good points and some solid storytelling, but there was nothing that really held my interest. Could have totally skipped it and not missed anything.
The last part is more interesting as it deals with Kingpin and the villain community’s reactions to the Civil War with some great scenes between Kingpin and Tony Stark

One of the worst written things I've ever come across. Every second word is '@#*!%'...not even 'Fuck' just the fake swearing. Really gritty...not.
5 of the 6 issues are about an idiotic mafia guy getting out of jail and readjusting. Only 1 is about Kingpin in jail, and his manipulations of Iron Man or Cap and the Civil War. That might have been interesting for a whole volume, but 1 issue? Nope, not enough to carry a book.
The art was also pretty lame, and I'm sorry, since when does some D-list ba

I kind of feel like "war Crimes" was a really misleading title for this book. In fact, until the last quarter of the book you won't even see how the hell anything ties in with the super hero Civil War, although I was okay with that. It was nice having the origin story of the Underworld character alongside the short Kingpin story at the end. It was nice knowing who this character was and why he was motivated the way he was, all things that would have been total question marks if I had read just t ...more

Honestly? I didn't like this one. I just don't like comics about bad guys. Especially not bad guys who are cursing and killing. I don't like the lack of moral, I don't know, I was going to use the word commentary, but I don't think that's right. It just made me uncomfortable. There was another graphic novel I tried reading, but I couldn't finish it because it was also about bad guys, being bad. It makes me uncomfortable, because I don't quite understand the point. Maybe there isn't a point. Mayb ...more

I thought this was super repetitive, boring, and did not really show anything worthwhile to the Civil War event. Boo, thumbs down.

The Kingpin is my kind of villain. I sure do enjoy watching him treat the whole world like a big game of chess.

Not bad. Interesting side of the story. Little slow. Writing wasn't anything special. My least favorite of the series so far.

stand alone : 3*
integrated in the story arc : not worth much at all... except if you count starks involvement in the underworld. Then again... check out "civil war :front line" for that !

Another one of those milking the cash-cow volumes.

In the War Crimes story we see the Kingpin pulling strings from inside prison and manipulating Tony Stark to get what he wants - a really good story with plenty of twists and turns
Oct 25, 2015 Mitchell rated it really liked it
A little confusing and a little dark. But definitely different and on the better side of the Civil War books. This one follows an unknown thug and how he gets involved on the edge of the Civil War battle. Pretty good writing, pretty good art. Lots of surprises. Worth rereading 4.5 of 5.

I swear this is the last one.

Jackie Dio is released from prison right at the start of the Marvel Civil War. Yeah, I didn't know who he was either but he sure beats up a lot of people in this comic book hard boiled homage.

Awesome idea however my copy was fucked up so the sequence of two of the comics was wack.
