Library Stop Part.1: Marvel “The Road To Civil War”

This was one series that i had been trying to get my hands on ,searching several different libraries  for a copy  until finally finding one that carried them.Only problem was that the main Civil War TPB # 1-7  seemed to have been checked out.I was ,however,able to pick up “The Road To Civil War” which covers events that lead up to the initial “Civil War” and “Frontline-Civil War” which book ends  this seemingly endless series.In “The Road To Civil War” Iron Man tries to assemble a secret team of heroes that consists of  Professor X,Reed Richards,Dr. Strange,Black Bolt,Black Panther and Namor…..”GASP”….in attempts to become world defenders so to speak after a recent battle between two alien races(the Skrull and the Kree)decided to settle their dispute on  Earth almost destroying the planet.Later on in the book  Iron Man confronts this same circle of heroes with the prospect of  a civil war breaking out due to a bill that will be passed by congress that would require every masked super hero or villain to reveal their secret identities to the government as well as register to become part of  S.H.I.E.L.D.’s world security force,essentially making them government employees. After Iron Man reveals to the skeptical group of  heroes that he is for the new registration  law,talks break down putting Tony back at square 1.

There are many different twists and revelations that unfurl as you continue reading this book not to mention the unveiling of  Spider-Man’s new costume courtesy of Tony Stark as well as a host of other cliff hangers.I’ll keep it short in order to avoid spoilers for any of you who haven’t gotten a chance to read this yet ,and if you have not given this a read i suggest you do so.

I’ll try to get into “Frontline Civil War”  V.1 and 2 sometime next week to complete this two part post on what i can honestly say has been my favorite series of comics to read to date.
