Reading this collection shows why it was in Marvel's best interest to eventually break down the various Spider-Man series into one consistent thrice-monthly book. There is just soooo much going on in here, and a lot of it seems to contradict or at least not acknowledge concurrent events in other series.

Oddly enough, my favorite storyline in this whole thing was JMS's main Civil War tie-in (from Amazing Spider-Man), which actually did a pretty solid job elaborating upon Peter's emotions during th

Other than Tony Stark and Captain America, Spider-man is probably the character most deeply involved in the Civil War storyline. Therefore, it makes sense that an entire tie-in book is needed to cover his perspective. Before the SHRA is passed, Tony begins cultivating Peter as a protégé and right hand man. Civil War: Spider-Man opens with Tony taking Peter to his private meetings with Congress about superhero registration. Tony is arguing against it, though he knows it is inevitable. When the St ...more

I'm not a big Marvel resder. I've only started reading Spider-Man and X-Men quite recently since I always found it hard to find a starting point to get into the Marvel Universe (something that has gotten a lot easier with the Msrvel Now reboot).

This is the first Marvel crossover event I read. I bought this collection years ago together with the Civil War miniseries and read them together using a reading quide I found on-line. It was a fun reading experience, laying aside one book to continue the

(I've only read a fraction of this book; it is in actuality a compendium of a storyline for the Marvel Civil War arc. I've read one comic from the collection featured in this book.)

This seemingly small comic contains one of the best speeches about patriotism and moral and ethical thought that has ever been put to paper. Surprisingly graceful and succinct, I picked this up at an airport convenience store while wasting time before a flight, and I stopped dead. Shivers broke out along my arms and u

Civil War Spider man is about how Peter Parker’s life changes when he goes public as Spiderman to tell everyone his secret identity. This was good story but not a lot of action. I would recommend this book to fans of Spider Man and Marvel comics even if there was little action.

Tony Starks asks Spiderman to join the registration group and work with him. Spiderman has strong feelings about against making his identity public because his enemies could attack his loved ones. He finally decides to joi

Shelves: reviewed
Of the three distinct Spider-Man titles and their respective tie-in trade paperbacks collected here, only Civil War: The Amazing Spider-Man is really worth the average reader's time (in that it's interesting & enriches the storyline of Civil War). That trade paperback earned 4 stars. It's the other two trades' Meh-ness that bring down the rating of this particular collection to 2 stars. They can easily be skipped.

If you are a huge Spider-man fan you'll want to read this for reading ever other Spider-man story. If you're not, then I say don't bother.

This is the volume where Spider-man infamously reveals his identity. If you're looking to read that story, this is it. Why 1 star? (1) the whole emotional touchstone was undone by "Brand New Day" and the wiping out of Peter's marriage to MJ. So, what did Peter do during the Civil War? Should we care? Also, the volume ends on a cliff hanger and a might

I'm really, really, really tired of Civil War stories, but even I can't resist Straczynski's Spider-Man. This is an enormous collection, but I wasn't bored and as an interlude to the Dan Slott era, it was a very nice change.

It started off relatively promising then it just became dull. didn't feel like continuing turning the pages so for me the book was done.

Creo que esto lo leí más de una vez, entre el coleccionable de Clarín y algún que otro número español de Panini. Cuando lo corrobore, me pongo las pilas con la reseña.

Featuring one of biggest moments in Marvel’s Civil War, this volume is all about Spider-Man and is an enjoyable, if at times overly long, volume.
