Arriving in April, Marvel Comics is proud to present a collection of the critically acclaimed, best-selling event that changed the Marvel Universe foreverâ€”Civil War. Written by acclaimed scribe Mark Millar and with art by the superstar artist Steve McNiven, Civil War is the Marvel event that captivated comic fans new and old, garnering mainstream attention from programs such as The Colbert Report and making headlines on CNN, ABC and other networks with the shocking end to issue #2, Civil War is the limited series that redefines the meaning of “event.”
With over 10 million copies of Civil War comics sold, there’s no doubt that it is the largest selling event in recent memory, but the acclaim for this Marvel event has not stopped pouring in. “In the end though, this series stayed true to the promise of delivering some of the biggest moments in Marvel’s history,” said Kenneth Gallant of BrokenFrontier.com.
Added Michael Bailey of SilverBulletComicBooks.com, “I am really psyched about this series…Millar and company delivered the goods.”
Michael San Giacomo, of Newsarama.Com exclaimed, “Damn, he’s good” of Millar’s writing, continuing, “Mark Millar does for Marvel Civil War what he does for Ultimates. And that’s pretty amazing.”
The art by Steve McNiven received universal acclaim, with Jason Grasso of ComixFan saying, “The attention to detail given to the large group encounters is mind-blowing, scenes that in the hands of other artists tend to blur beyond a few key characters in the foreground.”
Fans will also be able to experience Civil War in a brand new way with each issue of Civil War Chronicles, which presents every issue of the Civil War event in chronological order, allowing readers to see the nuances of this epic tale in the order they occured. Featuring two Civil War tales per issue, Chronicles will show you a new side of comic books’ biggest event of the decade.
With almost all the issues of Civil War sold out at Diamond, this is the best way to experience the superhero event that still has fans talking and has brought the largest mainstream media spotlight in a decade. If you still don’t know the answer to “Whose Side Are You On?” then it’s time to pick up the collection that will give you the answer.
