The epic story that blows the Marvel Universe apart!

Iron Man and Captain America: two core members of the Avengers, the world's greatest super hero team.

After a tragic battle in Stamford Connecticut, the U.S. government demands that all super heroes 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.

So begins the Civil War.

Reviews

Excellent interpretation by Jared Manninen (Posted on 3/19/2015)
As much as I liked the actual Marvel: Civil War comic books, I feel this novelization of the event is much more refined and compelling. The novel does take some liberties with regard to dialogue (some of the lines spoken by characters here in the novel were actually said by other characters in the comics), but I believe it's done appropriately and moves the story forward in a positive way. This storyline will be relevant for many years to come (civil liberties versus state control) and is definitely worth listening to. And, of course, Graphic Audio does another bang-up job of producing an amazing audio drama.
Best Marvel Audiobook Ever by Joseph (Posted on 3/5/2015)
A fantastic adaptation of an epic story. The voice actors did impeccable work with their characters on this and genuinely made me feel the emotions and inner turmoil the characters were feeling when making tragic decisions. Outstanding! I will definitely be listening to this over and over!!
Marvel Civil War by Darel (Posted on 2/26/2015)
The story was great as was the voice acting, music and sound effects. Well worth the money!
Incredible!! by Rick (Posted on 2/18/2015)
Will definitely get more of these. Hoping for World War Hulk or the Sentinel series. That would be great.
Civil War by Chelsea (Posted on 2/18/2015)
Graphic Audio's dramatic presentation of Marvel's Civil War brought to life the conflict of the Marvel's universe heroes. I thought the original comic was good but it had some issues with flow. This audio book took the best elements from the comics and made this story even better-which is a true depiction of what can make an audio book great. I've listened and thoroughly enjoyed many of the DC titles and I look forward to checking out the Marvel audio books.
Excellent title, but... by Grant (Posted on 2/17/2015)
Excellent title! Great voice acting, easy to follow and very well composed (music and sound effects). Biggest let down is that it ended... WE NEED A SEQUEL ASAP (please).
Civil War by john (Posted on 2/16/2015)
Awesome! I have purchased every Marvel Na DC title to date and I have never been let down. The voice acting, music and sound effects really draw you in. I love these books!
Marvel - Civil War by Don (Posted on 2/14/2015)
I just purchased this, and a full review will follow. Wanted all to know, if this doesn't interest you for any other reason, this is the rumored story line for the next Captain America movie. That in itself makes it a must-have for me.
Great book by Brice (Posted on 2/12/2015)
this book is a adrenaline rush from start to finish, but not the biggest fan of Frank Castles voice casting
Highly political super heroes by Paul (AudiobookReviewer) (Posted on 1/14/2015)
I have been a fan of the Marvel Comics brand ever since I was 10 or so, they were the creators of my favorite super heroes. I have listened to, but not reviewed a few of Graphic Audios titles in the past and they have yet to disappoint. Always full of action, action, more action and drama. I don't think that I would recommended any of the Marvel Comics audio books to people that are not fans of super hero stories, but I have been wrong in the past.

I find it a bit difficult to write a review for this audiobook, not really sure why. I loved it, sound effects and all, something that is rare in most audiobooks. <em>Marvel Comics: Civil War</em> did feel a little short and compressed since everything seemed to happen so fast and we didn't dwell on any on story line much. Considering how much material the actual event created in graphic novels they could have easily split this up into several parts. I am not going to say much about the plot, but imagine this, a world full of superheros fighting crime and super villains. Then one day all the superheros start fighting amongst themselves over highly political reasons. If you have been wanting to try out an audiobook that is much more like a "movie in your mind" and are a fan of comic books, then I urge you to check <em>Marvel Comics: Civil War</em> out among other, I will be looking for more.

The full cast of narrators made <em>Marvel Comics: Civil War</em> very dynamic and really helped me keep all of the characters separate. Each chosen well for they all seemed to fit what I would have thought Spiderman, Ironman (especially while in the suit), Captain America and others, to sound like and all injecting so much emotion and passion in to every sentence. Really the only thing that would make it better is if it sounded more like all of the narrators were all recording together instead of seeming to be different recording sessions edited together, was done well, but I still had this sense.

LOVED IT! by Christopher (Posted on 1/10/2015)
I had already read the book to this a few years ago but I really wanted to have it in audio form as well. It did not disappoint. My only problem with the book(Not the audio, they simply followed the book) was that it focused more on Iron Man and Spider-Man than Cap. I feel like Civil War WAS Cap's story. The author should have had more of Cap in the book but I was still pleased with how it turned out. Tigra is one of my favorite underused Avengers and again I was happy to hear her come to life.

I'm now listening to Death of Captain America and it's great that it follows from this story. PLEASE DO CAPTAIN AMERICA: REBORN NEXT!!!
Civil War by Justin (Posted on 12/19/2014)
This was a phenomenal production. I was especially fond of the voice actor for Spider-Man. I think he nailed the essence of the character. Phenomenal job!
Civil War by Michael (Posted on 12/17/2014)
This production is epic! Although the same could be said of most the Graphic Audio content, Civil War definitely stands out! Listened to it 4 times back to back, looking forward to more marvel and dc productions!
Better than the comics by Benjamin (Posted on 12/8/2014)
I don't much care for the original comic but this audio version was awesome! You could really understand why Cap and Iron Man did what they did
Civil War by Victor (Posted on 12/6/2014)
I have listened to one other comics volume, Kingdom Come on cassettes (remember those?). That was an expertly done piece until GA put together their series of comic theater for the mind. This blew me away. I liked the creative changes they made to the story that added to the graphic volume not take away from it. It hit all of the high notes and then some. That is why I am adding Secret Wars to my wish list for 2015. Whenever you decide to do Batman's Court of Owls or the Killing Joke let me know.
Civil war by Lionel (Posted on 11/20/2014)
Wow, my first superhero audio book, and I was totally blown away by the quality.
The voices were next to perfect, especially Iron Man.
GA is a perfect medium for superhero audio books for sure!
civil war by john (Posted on 11/19/2014)
This was the first comic audio book I ever listened too. I listened to a sample while on a Delta flight from California to Dc and boy was I hooked. This is as good as the Avengers movie, I loved the story, the voice acting and sound effect is as good as any movie you can think of. Everything was perfect, please keep making more.
Awesome Audio by Anthony (Posted on 10/31/2014)
As always GA have done another great job with Marvel characters. Look forward to others in the near future.
Really excellent by Shannon (Posted on 10/18/2014)
I'm a fan of comics, so I was really excited when a friend pointed me to this production. And it didn't disappoint! There are a few changes from the original (in the ending especially, but I suspect that will be addressed at least in part in the upcoming "Death of Captain America" production), but by and large it was very faithful, and what changes there were were definitely for the better. For example, Susan and Reed's subplot was expanded, and there was a whole lot more with Spiderman's personal life.

My only complaint is that they didn't include Cap's "plant yourself like a tree" speech. ("Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, YOU move."") Admittedly it was in the Amazing Spiderman tie-in for Civil War, but it's probably the most well-known quote to come out of the event and it's a shame it wasn't included.

Excellent writing, acting, and production value! I loved it :)
Civil War by Michael (Posted on 9/25/2014)
One of my all time favourite Marvel comic events, this is the next best thing to an animated film. Loved it highly recommended.
Civil War by Travis (Posted on 9/10/2014)
This is my first Marvel title, and it was a great one to get started with. I hadn't read the Civil War story arc in the comics, so I was going in with just a little knowledge. The production quality was great, and the story flowed very smoothly.
worth it by DAVIS (Posted on 9/5/2014)
this was one of my first buys and I loved it you can see y marvel is on top right now
field supervisor by Adrian (Posted on 9/3/2014)
One of the best marvel story come to life. It was an incredible experience
Marvel: Civil War by Steven (Posted on 9/3/2014)
In Stamford, Connecticut a second-rate team of superheroes takes on a second-rate gang of super villains. For the heroes it’s an opportunity to gain some national attention and more viewers for their TV show. They get some national attention all right, but not quite the kind they had in mind. The end result of the battle is a smoking crater in a residential area of Stamford, nearly 1,000 civilians dead, and the death of the heroes and villains as well.

What happened next was all too predictable. It doesn’t take long for Congress to initiate the SRA, Superhuman Registration Act, making it a federal law for all super-humans to register themselves with the government: secret identities, powers, everything. Those who register will now work for the government through the SHIELD agency. Those who don’t will be hunted down and detained.

Iron-Man is all for the registration right from the start. After all, everyone already knows he’s Tony Stark so he has nothing to lose. The president even calls on the Iron-Clad Avenger to help implement the SRA, talking other superheroes into registering, or convincing them by other means whenever necessary. Tony takes on this task with a disturbing kind of enthusiasm.

On the other side of the coin you have Captain America, probably the staunchest defender of the constitution this country has ever known. Cap is all about saving lives and being a hero, but being forced to register and work under government regulations is just too much to take. Cap is soon forced to go into hiding along with other superheroes that feel the same. It’s plain to see that Cap’s band of rebels will have to go toe-to-toe with Iron-Man’s group sooner or later. And when they do, it will be all out Civil War.

For as long as there have been comic books, there have been writers dreaming up ways to get the heroes to fight each other, just to see who would come out on top. Comic fans themselves engage in endless debates on which hero is strongest. In Marvel: Civil War Mark Millar has come up with one of the more plausible scenarios I’ve seen to probe the minds and powers of some of my favorite heroes and I think he nailed it. Each hero is true to his or her own nature as they choose sides. I especially liked how the character of Spider-man was handled. Spidey really wants to do “the right thing” but revealing his secret identity would put his loved ones in danger. This side-story makes for some interesting additional drama.

I love audiobooks and I love comics. Any chance I get to put the two together and I’m in fan-boy heaven. That’s what is so great about Graphic Audio. When they set out to make an audio production from a comic graphic novel, they pull all out the stops. We’re talking cinematic music and sound effects along with a full cast of talented voice actors. And those voice talents are well chosen. The characters in Marvel: Civil War have been around for a long time and comic fans know them well. We’ve spent years imagining what Iron-Man’s voice, or Captain America’s voice, might sound like and I think Graphic Audio did a good job of filling those roles with appropriate voices. Marvel: Civil War is a full cast production so there is a pretty long list of actors, but some of then include:

Richard Rohan, Richard Cutting, Tim Getman, James Keegan, Kimberly Gilbert, Jeff Allin, Julie-Ann Elliott, Ken Jackson, Evan Casey, Elizabeth Jernigan, James Lewis, Thomas Penny, Danny Gavigan, Tracy Olivera, Elliot Dash, Nick DePinto, Tim Pabon, Michael Glenn, Thomas Keegan, Alyssa Wilmoth, Lily Beacon, Colleen Delany, Karen Novack, Scott McCormick, Caleb Brown, Bradley Smith, Nora Achrati, Sherry Berg, David Coyne, Christopher Scheeren, Eric Messner, Joe Brack, Terence Aselford, James Konicek, Alexander Strain, Casie Platt, Joel David Santner, Nanette Savard, David Harris, Michael John Casey, Yasmin Tuazon, Patrick Bussink, Casey Jones, Steven Carpenter, Drew Kopas, Lily David, Dylan Lynch and Damyon "Chop" Richardson.

Graphic audio does a great job with voice acting. All of the titles I have bought (and there have been many ) really do create a movie in my mind. But definition of these characters, the lines defining one character from another are blurred some for me . I'm so used to the same voices from one title to the next. the same cast used in different ways across all titles here. I hope it's just me. I also hope to hear some new voices as graphic audio brings in new talent
No Regrets by Steve (Posted on 8/2/2014)
This was my first buy on this site. No regrets from me. I listened to all of it in one straight session.
Marvel Civil War by Robert (Posted on 7/20/2014)
I enjoyed this Audio book! Nice Casting on the voices! I loved reading this story when it originally was released! While on a long rode trip, it was captivating to listen to Marvel's Civil War! Look forward to more Marvel and DC stories from Audio Graphics!

One disappointment, on listening to it this time, was that I had purchased this set back in February of 2013! and listened to it only once back then, and was disappointed to have the 6th disk, the last part of the story began skipping :( so the last part was disjointing in listening to the end of the story! I placed a request to have this disk replaced! Hopefully Graphic audio will replace it!
Fantastic for library collection by Stephanie (Posted on 7/17/2014)
I am a librarian, and got this and another title to try out in my library's young adult collection. The teens liked them so much that I ordered 10 more. Since we also have the graphic novel version of this story, it has sparked debates about which is better, what were the best parts that were left out of the GA, what the GA did better than the GN, and all the other pitfalls of adaptations. Aside from being an excellent story, GA can be a great teaching tool!
Wow! He'll yea by Arcenio (Posted on 7/9/2014)
Aww man super amazing can't believe they did this
Best one yet by Matthew (Posted on 7/6/2014)
Loved the graphic novel love this even more! Brings the whole story to life
