Civil War - 199 issues
Road to Civil War and tie-ins Civil War The Initiative
The Marvel Universe is changing. In the wake of a tragedy, Capitol Hill proposes The Superhuman Registration Act, requiring all costumed heroes to unmask themselves before the government. Divided, the nations' greatest champions must each decide how to react. A decision that will alter the course of their lives forever!
Civil War is encompassing the entire Marvel Universe, and the effects of the war are being felt by every hero, villain and civilian. In Civil War: Choosing Sides, five stories shine a spotlight on the wildcards and impact players whose part in the Civil War has yet to be told - including Daredevil/Iron Fist, U.S.Agent, the Irredeemable Ant-Man, Venom and even... Howard the Duck? Then in Winter Soldier: Winter Kills, James Buchanan Barnes, Captain America's one-time partner Bucky, faces his first Christmas of the 21st century - and the truth of the terrible things he was forced to do as the Winter Soldier. And with Cap caught in a conflict he can neither take a side of - or understand - what moves can he make to try to redeem himself? Later, in Civil War: The Return, two of the universe's greatest heroes are confronted with pasts they can't leave behind in two heart-rendering tales. On Earth, the Sentry confronts his inner demons as the shadows of past and future battles tear him apart. Within The Negative Zone, the walls of 42 are pulled back to reveal the return of one of the Marveldom's greatest heroes. And in She-Hulk, Civil War threatens the rights of every American super hero. So whose side will Marvel's top superhuman lawyer fight for? And how can she possibly choose, when she feels one way as She-Hulk, and another as Jen Walters?

Great value that covers Marvel's Civil War Feb 26, 2008
By Reader from the North
Some longtime readers of Marvel Comics despise the concept of a "civil war" among previous allies. Whether you like it or not (and I have mixed feelings), you have to credit Marvel with some intriguing stories. The various writers do manage to take a relatively even-sided view of the conflict (idealism/Captain America vs. pragmatism/Iron Man).
However, if you can see beyond the horrors of "What Hath Marvel Wrought?", this DVD is an excellent buy. It would cost you many more dollars to buy the individual comics or the graphic novel reprints. If you want to read the stories but don't want to sink a lot of money into it, get this DVD. It includes almost 200 issues--the build-up to the Civil War, the War issues themselves, and the Initiative issues.
Only difficulty I had reading the issues on a computer screen involved occasional oddly written text (i.e. the Vision's dialogue) or small text (some "computer-like" text in Iron Man scenes). Overall, though, it's a tremendous bargain.

Back in production -- Great Jan 07, 2010
By F. W. Keyser
I had meant to buy this collection when it first came out, But GIT stopped making them after only a short time, and the used ones started selling to $100+ -- no thank you. Now that they are back in normal prodution and at a reasonable price I find it's a great complilation of a fascinating story line in the Marvel Universe. Unlike the Spider man and X-men collections, that give you all of the central title, but none of the "spin off" titles that you had to have to read a coherent story line -- all of the necessary titles are here to carry you through the story arc. -- Nice job!

This is a great, complete collection Jan 18, 2009
By Thom Carey
I bought this as a gift. I received a phone call from the recipient and received lots of thank yous and how great it was to have all the comic issues on a DVD. He said it was easy to use and the colors were great. If you're a comic person and missed the 'Civil War' series, get this!

A strong collection Apr 13, 2008
By Sean Hoade
GIT really did a fine job with these comic collections. Too bad Marvel is now going totally online and won't let anyone have the actual comics in hand anymore. *sigh* Oh, well -- but if you can get it used (or from GIT), go for it. It's definitely worth the money!

Stupid Story, Great Art Jun 26, 2010
Now hang with me for a minute, because this might get confusing. GitCorp here is getting the 5 star review, not Marvel and the Cold War event. Here's why.
The only true highlight to me in this series is Wolverine's quest. Otherwise, it is a godawful Marvel event with character assassination of just about every major Marvel character on the part of the editors and writers. The five minute long Senate hearing in Iron Man 2 is better than the entire mess of this thing, and it deals with the exact same issue.
Here's the thing: comics are escapist fantasy. We want to see them fly around and blow crap up and beat on ultra tough baddies and wear silly costumes and the works. Who in their right minds thought that this entire metatheme needed to be brought into the real world? Who went out of their way to screw up comics for us? After you tether them to the real world and try to stop them from doing what we love, what's the point in continuing to read them? Marvel royally screwed up here.
The only other praise I will give it is that I love the art to death. It's marvelous (see what I did there?).
GitCorp's scans are of the highest quality, and it includes both the main event and all the tie-in comics as well. This is an enormous collection! I have just about every Marvel collection of scans GitCorp put out, and am very sad to see them discontinue their line of products because of Marvel.
I'll proclaim from the mountain top that GitCorp's products are well worth the money.
Even if you hated this Marvel event, I would still recommend it for the series of Wolverine comics in here alone. And if you like looking at great artwork.
