Publisher's Summary

Iron Man and Captain America are two core members of the Avengers, the world's greatest superhero team. But when a tragic battle blows a hole in the city of Stamford, killing hundreds of people, the US government demands that all superheroes unmask and register their powers. To Tony Stark - Iron Man - it's a regrettable but necessary step. To Captain America, it's an unbearable assault on civil liberties. 

This GraphicAudio® Production is adapted from the graphic novel by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven.

Better than the comic, not as good as the movie

Civil War is very 2000s. Mark Millar, in probably Marvel's last big crossover which actually felt like it had stakes and lasting impacts, basically took his Ultimates writing style and incorporated it into the mainline Marvel Universe. It didn't always work, and seemed more about cool action movie scenes trying to be smart more than it felt like the real versions of these characters (but how else are Iron Man and Cap going to thrown down?) but it was a noble attempt. At least sometimes.

Poor New Warriors... The Fantastic For particularly didn't work. And how they gonna do Thor/Clor like that!

Even before the MCU, it was good that Marvel was focusing on its core classic characters being a big deal. The Avengers are indeed what it's all about. The X-Men for example were barely there. And yes, Spider-Man's identity reveal quickly didn't count anymore, yet that was a cool scene in of itself.

The best parts of Civil War, over in the Captain America and Spidey books, weren't even in this particular mini-series. The best parts were how the other storylines made an impact in the various titles of the time, and the Initiative thereafter.

The art by Steve McNiven is spectacular. Perfect tone for revealing a superhero setting in a serious, somewhat political gritty style. While also able to portray weird science fiction in the Negative Zones, and of course fight scenes.

Lastly, it inspired a great film. If nothing else, that makes this worth a reread. Always fun to compare. Well that makes for a legacy, even if reboots and Secret Wars always undo it all. You can always go back and have those arguments again, so have at it already: Which side were you on?

PS: Just skip Civil War II

Comic Book come to life.

This is almost like another Avengers film. When you listen to these people and their struggles against Superhero Registration you will definitely wonder whether you are for or against registration. Both sides believe they're fighting for what's right, and both of them will suffer great losses as a result. This is a must for anyone who has ever been into Marvel Comics.

Awesome but not the same story

I really enjoyed this! The dramatic performances were awesome And it all reminded me of a old radio series’. It wasn’t the same as the comic book series though. It’s very heavily abridged and they do make some major changes to the original storyline.

Fun

I’ll keep it short- this and some of the other Marvel books currently being released are the Graphic Audio productions, so they are dramatizations of the books, with music, sound effects, and different actors for each part. That being said, they are generally a ton of fun, if you like such things. They also follow the story lines in the comics, as opposed to the movies. I’m not sure why they’re being released on Audible, but I like it, and they’re worth the credits.

Only part of the story!

The Civil War story was more than just 6 comic books. Sadly this audio book ONLY contains the 6 books titled Civil War. Without all the tie in books you're missing well over half of the story.

I had my doubts about "audio" comics but it's great!

They really went the extra mile. Each character narrated by different actors and actresses. Each giving a performance that brings forth a personality to each character. A good balance of narrative script and character dialogue. I tried this after liking the audio version of secret wars. I've read the actual comics and which made this experience better I'm sure. But the secret wars one, I've never read and I still enjoyed the audio book very much. I hope they come out with many more.

Loved the voice acting

I love how every single character has their own voice actor. The book really was like a movie in my head.

This was so good!

I’ve read the book and read a few of the comics but the audiobook was so good! I loved the fact that it had a bunch of different voice actors doing all the different characters. The music and sound effects were like listening to a movie in my head. I finished this audiobook on a day off doing things around the house and running errands while continually and constantly listening to the whole story playing out in my head. I can’t wait to jump into another Marvel audiobook.

Nice take, totally enjoyable

Tony, Peter, and Sue Richards shine in this adaptation. Steve’s bitterness seemed a bit too on point, his view not quite shining through as well as Tony’s. Overall a great story, well acted with kudos to narrator Rohan.

Great book!!!

I don’t often write reviews but I need to say this. I LOVED that each character had their own person reading their lines!!! Audible should do this for ALL their fictional books with multiple characters in them.

EVEN BETTER ADAPTATION THAN THE MOVIE

I listened to this during my work hours, as I pretty much stand solitarily alone at a work bench, and I just can not express how entertaining I found this! The story was brilliant, and so in depth in comparison to the Marvel studios adaptation we received (which I still enjoyed) The voice acting blew me away, having a full cast as opposed to one narrator was an absolutely brilliant decision.

Gripping. I couldn’t stop listening.

It was very well written and well performed. It is as advertised: a movie in your mind. A great one too.

Fantastic adaptation

One of my favourite Marvel Storylines of all time and this does it more than justice. Great performances and in places this adds addition meat to the bones. Brilliant listen, get this in your ears.
