Marvel has taken what was originally published as two separate volumes (Civil War: Iron Man) and (Civil War: Captain America) and smooshed them together into a single book. As a way to market the book in the wake of the Civil War movie, it makes sense Captain America and Iron Man, the faces and rallying points of the event, are at polar opposites on the Superhuman Registration Act (SHRA) anyone who has super abilities has to not only register themselves with the government, but give up their ...more

I will never get over "The Confession". It was arguably the best issue in all of the Civil War arc. It gets at the heart of what the arc was: Compromise v. Pride. Sorry, but I was Team Iron Man from the start and that's never changed. To truly understand why Tony did the things he did, you had to read all of the tie ins. There were over 50 but I read them all and that's why I found it pretty much impossible to be Team Cap.

This collection does a pretty okay job at a quick notes version of where

I'm not sure I'm really well suited to review this collection of Civil War comics. I'm pretty new to comic book reading. If it hadn't been for my very good friend (and fellow Goodreader) Grace, I would have never ventured into the comic section of Barnes and Noble. I didn't even know they sold comic books there. Still, I'm a reviewer and so I must review.

Obviously, this volume cannot cover the entire arc of the Civil War storyline. There are more than a hundred of comics involved in the whole

3.5 overall really enjoyable, but the best issues were the ones with Cap & Iron Man in it, of course.
I understand this was a mash-up of two volumes of the Civil War I tie-in for Cap & Iron Man, but even so there was a lot going on in this book. The Happy/Pepper story-line was heartbreaking. The Bucky team-up (with Vision, Hawkeye, Kate Bishop & Patriot) was fun and the flash-backs to the war were good, but distracting. I have no idea what's going on with the Red Skull, Dr. Faustus

This was a very mixed bag, the stories from the actual Captain America comic and Iron Man comic where pretty good. But the other ones ranged from OK to terrible.

The problem with comics crossover "events" is that while they are often good in theory, they are often not done well in execution. While the idea of having all of the characters of a particular universe interacting and dealing with some giant crisis is nice, it rarely ever delivers (and speaking of crises...Marv Wolfman's Crisis on Infinite Earths remains the gold standard of how these sorts of things should be executed.) I think this might be because of all the disparate creative teams working ...more

Another good collection of Marvel comics, but similar to The Road to Civil War which I read previously it doesn't go into much depth and seems to leap from one point in the story to the next without much context or explanation.

Better for those familiar with the Marvel Universe than those trying to become familiar.

Still, an enjoyable enough read.

More like a 3.5. I know I'll rate this higher once I've finished the Marvel Universe collection, which is the main storyline, because then this one will make even more sense.

I'm reading this event according to the official Marvel Civil War reading recommendation list as seen on their website here:

I found this collection to be an odd mash-up of supplementary material for this event. We see the first instance of sexy times here, and with Captain America who I did not expect to be the first instance I came across in my reading order. There is a heavier emphasis on espionage, manipulation, and conspiracy in this collection. We

19/130 (2029 Reading Challenge)

It was good. Marks off for the Captain America issues which felt a bit lacking. But a good companion piece for civil war, which would need to be read first. Maybe 2stars if youd not read that first. As would make little sense not meant to stand alone.
Marks off also, just because even with the tie in stuff. From not having read the previous (or subsequent) issues of Captain America & Iron Man there were plot elements which just went beyond me. Running threads

Trust the legendary Ed Brubaker to take the clusterfuck that was Civil War and make it...good? The motivations are only ever going to be so clear, and even he couldn't salvage Cap's nonsensical stance, but damn, did Brubaker give it his best effort. The scenes with the two of them just talking are some of the best writing to come out of the whole event. I've also never liked Tony Stark as much in a comic as I did in this volume, and The Confession was a masterwork of the format. It made me ...more

Not having read any of the background story going into this, I was caught off guard by all the events taking place. I knew the overall gist, but the book draws a lot on past history. The art is has plenty of dark overtones, and the dialogues are equally grim. It did leave me wanting to learn more about what happened and I've already gone into the library to pick up Civil War: The Road to Civil War.

Big collection of cross-over stories. If asked to consider the mountain of Marvel mega-events and make a recommendation to new readers, two series always come to mind: CIVIL WAR and SECRET INVASION. Those are two that Marvel did right. Best of this volume are the Ed Brubaker/Mike Perkins Captain America issues and the one-shot Brian Michael Bendis/Alex Maleev Civil War: The Confession. Wow, that one really sticks the knife in and twists - - what a way to wrap up the event! FOUR STARS.

Pretty good stories here. One thing I found silly, however, was when Tony Stark (without armor) and Captain America have a fistfight and we see Tony landing some punches on Cap. I don't care how much karate Tony Stark Knows, Captain America is a super soldier and would tear him to pieces in an actual street fight.
I read this in order to read the follow-on story, and as part of the Civil War crossover event. That said, I don't tend to be an Iron Man nor Cap fan (reading), or Winter Soldier, so this story was only mediocre to me. I did like the Sharon Carter portions, and the artwork all around was decent enough. I don't feel this was required reading whatsoever for Civil War, so feel free to skip it.
Amanda Shepard (Between-the-Shelves)
There are a lot of great moments between Iron Man and Captain America in this, looking at why Civil War really started. I also liked a lot of the art; some of the panels are really striking. This gives a good look at how the Civil War started, and how it was finished. I would recommend this to someone looking to get more of the Civil War story line from two of the main instigators.

It was really good. It has what is probably the best issue in civil war, the confession. Otherwise it was pretty good but the bucky stuff was just okay.

An interesting look at Cap & Tony's points of view during "Civil War," but doesn't make sense if you haven't read "Civil War."

The Cap stuff was awesome while the Iron Man stories fell flat. Confession is good but without knowing what happens to Cap it seems out of nowhere. Just a disjointed collection

Good comics, bad collection.

It left too many holes and spoiled what was missed. I liked each story but was frustrated by how much it jumped around and left out.
Max's Comic Reviews and Lists
Civil War continues with the strengths of Cap and Stark. I wasn't expecting
this but to my surprise this is a very reserved, serious, and dialogue heavy
comic. This is more of a psychological battle for the two title characters who are trying to deal with the effects of Civil War. I really liked that aspect of the harsh effects on the friendship and the mind events from this story have on the characters. The nodes and references to books like Iron Man Demon in a Bottle was pretty frickin sweet

Since it was told over about 100 issues, it's probably impossible to get one conclusive and/or coherent trade paperback with the complete story line of Marvel's Civil War crossover event. This collection largely focuses on the strained relationship between Captain America and Iron Man, and how they're both reflecting deeply about the opposing positions they took during this epic disagreement.

Most of the comic books that are included are decent stories, but readers who are looking to get an

Captain America & Iron Man are two of the three main characters in Civil War, but the tie-ins in their solo series are shockingly inessential. Iron Man navel gazes and kills (?) (view spoiler). Also, there's some deeply racist portrayals of Muslims. Captain America's 3 issues are side-stories involving Sharon Carter and Bucky that basically just kill time until someone gets killed. The one-shots are a mixed back. Winter Soldier: Winter Kills is great fun. The ...more

I'm a little miffed, having read almost all of this in one of the Ed Brubaker Captain America collections. Those are very, very good. Here, the combination of the Captain American and Iron Man books does little. There are two separate (and therefore wildly inconsistent) "Let's have a talk" books. But they both seem exceedingly unrelated to the action within each of the character's own books. (They're consistent with the themes and general stories. But now where and when each of them is DOING ...more
