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.

Civil war by Darrell (Posted on 9/18/2016)
Action from beginning to end. Though I didn't like the angle the story took at the end.
PERFECT!! by Adam (Posted on 9/18/2016)
This was amazing. I can't do music when I workout, because it doesn't let me tune out enough, and I end up focusing on the pain. With an audiobook, especially one this well done, my mind is in another world. Fantastic. Expertly adapted and acted.
Awesome! by john (Posted on 9/16/2016)
The Marvel stories like the DC are perfect! I own each and every one and I couldn’t be happier. To hear my favorite characters brought to life with the proper respect to the character is amazing. Graphicaudio truly understands how these characters need to be portrayed and they do it wonderfully. I would love to hear more x-men stories!
Marvel Civil was - I did have a Movie in my Mind by Tarus (Posted on 9/14/2016)
Great! My first exposure to GA and it was amazing. Taking the words and sound and putting those images into my mind to build the set. A must listen too.
Just awesome by James (Posted on 8/15/2016)
I never read the original comic version of this story but was familiar with the gist of the plot. As always, GA has done a tremendous job with casting and production of this audiobook. Very entertaining and a great escape from a monotonous commute. Highly recommended.
With Great Powers.... by Joseph Baneth Allen (Posted on 8/13/2016)
Just finished listening to "Civil War" released by Graphic Audio.
At what point can a government, in this case, the Government of the United States, regulate the behavior of its citizens who are leading double lives as superheroes?
That questions divides the heroes of the Marvel Universe when a reality television show filming the daily routines of a twenty-something superhero group looking to kick up their show's ratings and views a few notches try to take down a team of super-powered who vastly out class them in powers in Stamford, Connecticut.
The resulting disaster causes the American Government to demand that all superheroes unmask and register with the government and attend training camps to learn who to work as a cohesive para-military group for pay and benefits. Those who don't comply will be banished to the Negative Zone in a posh, but escape-proof prison for the rest of their lives.
Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, has been appointed to by the President - after lobbying for the position - as the director of this new government-sponsored program; and he recruits a naive Peter Parker as his second-in-command. .
Peter goes along with Tony's plans, mainly because he was kept in the dark. Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America,believes the government is going too far and leads a counter-revolutionary group of freedom fighters that seeks to free those super-powered heroes who have been imprisoned.
Do not listen to this if you're expecting a rehash of the most recent Captain America movie.
With great powers does come great responsibilities; and also the rules and regulations of governments.
A compelling morality tale with no easy answers.
Highly Recommended!
Five Stars!.



One of Graphic Audio's Best! by Jason (Posted on 7/17/2016)
One word: EPIC.

Graphic Audio stays true to the source material and delivers a compelling adaptation more truthful, action-jammed, and poignant than the MCU adaptation on the big screen. GA delivers a cast of dozens spanning the whole Marvel Universe. GA's stable of actors make each a fully realized character you care about. You feel the sizzle and pop, glory at the wins, mourn the losses. I can only hope we'll see future adaptations of other storylines like Dark Reign, Siege, War of Kings, Fall of the Mutants, House of M, Jonathan Hickman's Avengers & Avengers World, and maybe even the new Secret Wars mega-crossover.

Good effects, better actors than other audio companies like Big Finish, great writing. This title truly delivers on the "Movie In Your Mind" promise. I listened to it and then listened to it with my kids and they enjoyed it just as much.

Really very impressive.

Best Graphic Audio title so far.
Civil War is AWESOME!! by Guy (Posted on 7/13/2016)
I have to start graphic novel GraphicAudio reviews with this: a book brings a story to life with words alone. A graphic novel brings a story to life with art and words. GraphicAudio brings a story to life with words, music, sound effects, and a host of great actors.
The story behind Marvel’s Civil War and the reason for the two sides I find so compelling and relevant to today’s issues – what’s more important: national security or civil liberties? I’ve read the graphic novel/comics, the prose novel, and listened to GraphicAudio’s outstanding production of the prose novel. Riveting! Stunning! Not to be missed!
Fantastic!!! by Joshua (Posted on 6/23/2016)
This is a great telling of one of the most important stories in Marvel History. Great story!!
Riveting! by Kevin (Posted on 6/16/2016)
Having recently seen the movie, Civil War, I loved it so much that I wanted more. Realizing the movie was a departure from the original story, I decided to try this audio. I was blown away. If a movie is running more than 3 hours, I'm getting antsy to leave, but I listened to most of this 6 hour story in a single sitting. I couldn't tear myself away. I highly recommend it.
Flawless by Lucas (Posted on 5/22/2016)
Probably GA's best title. Practically flawless presentation of the Civil War story line.
Brought to life by Andrew (Posted on 5/11/2016)
Listened to this after reading the comic and while it was spot on it truly brought the characters and situation to life.
One of my favs by dewayne (Posted on 4/25/2016)
Story, acting, sound design is top notch as always,combine that with a great story... audio masterpiece.
civil war by lauren (Posted on 4/7/2016)
I was so happy to hear the quality of these productions and wven happier to hear they continued through the entire production. The story was well played out and illustrated the story better than expected. I imagine this will be a great intro to more development with the civil war.
Great audio book! by Paul (Posted on 2/19/2016)
Enjoyed this audio book very much! As always, the voice talent, sound effects and scripting make the graphic novel come to life. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but heh, it is the Marvel Universe after all, right?
Marvel: Civil War by Sarah (Posted on 2/16/2016)
This was my first Graphic Audio title, and I was immediately impressed by the cast, soundtrack, and sound effects. It was incredibly helpful in a story with such a large cast of characters and intense action. That said, this title would be difficult to follow without a fairly solid background on the Marvel characters and universe.
Going to the source material by Wayne (Posted on 1/22/2016)
I decided to buy this program to get insight into the upcoming movie. I know they are adapting it for screen but I wanted to get a sense of the material. I was blown away. This story was absolutely EPIC!! Epic I tell you. And like the DC programs, everyone sounded like "themselves". I am going to buy this for friends!
Great Choice by Tommy (Posted on 1/14/2016)
My introduction to Graphic Audio was through their Green Lantern: Sleepers trilogy, and the idea of turning audio books into radioplay style productions intrigued me greatly. Deciding to check out this website to see if they had anything else I'd be interested in, I found a new fascination for myself in Graphic Audio's great selection of Marvel and DC based audiobooks (alongside several series I'd not heard of that I'm slowly perusing to see what may or may not pique my interest).

That said, their rendition of Civil War was the first of their books to truly catch my attention (their version of Kraven's Last Hunt being on my next to buy list). I went into the story expecting it deviate from the plot of the graphic novel in several ways, and fully expecting the action to be great but the emotional punches to be somewhat pulled.

It didn't take long for me to proven wrong on that front. Over the roughly six hour length of their version of the story, the action was indeed great. As were the emotional moments, the payoffs of character development. While the Fantastic Four weren't even the primary focus of the plot, the sub-plot involving their familial reaction to the Civil War added a great depth to the story, and without being the primary headliners, still proved to be a better rendition of their dynamics and their power as characters than any of the three film adaptations that have been released. As well, the relationships between the characters are all handled well, so that you can feel with the characters the impact of the situations they're being put through.

Before finding this audiobook, I had been greatly anticipating the release of Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War mostly because I figured it was the closest to a real adaptation of the storyline I'd find. Instead, I find myself now thinking that the movie won't be able to hold a candle to this production (both due to time constraints, and an inability to develop characters the way they were in this audio production.)

Over all, I'm incredibly glad with this purchase, and am looking forward to collecting more material from Graphic Audio in the future.
Marvel Civil War by Christopher (Posted on 12/29/2015)
Read the book and this filled in some extra parts not in the book. Plus I thought the cast did an excellent job on their part, the re-enactment through their voices and music made the story much more vivid. I have recommended this and the Civil War by Mark Millar. Now I want to reread the "CIVIL WAR: THE COMPLETE EVENT" and "suggested reading order".
Great Listening by J.R. (Posted on 12/22/2015)
This was great to have on my recent road trip.
Pretty gooooood by jeremy (Posted on 12/12/2015)
Probably my second favorite of the marvel selection. I listened to it more than once so that's something.
Civil War by Nicholas (Posted on 11/29/2015)
I love this audio book. All of the voices and acting are spot on. I never takes this off of my MP3 player. The only thing that caught me off guard is that Peter and Mary Jane aren't married in this version but that would make the production about ten hours long to include Back in Black and everything. I love graphic audio. Keep it up.
Great adaptation by Christopher (Posted on 11/27/2015)
Having read the original Civil War comics when they were released, I thought nothing in this adaptation would surprise me. While it hits the same major beats, there are some different characters thrown in and some different actions taken by others that made it worth a listen even if you read the story when it was originally released.
Marvel @ its finest! by JOSEPH (Posted on 11/27/2015)
I don't even need 2 c the movie when it comes out in theaters now!!! Lol....jk....I'm on that movie!
Civil war by Mike (Posted on 11/4/2015)
This was my first graphic audio title to listen to and it got me hooked. Very entertaining and worth a listen.
Wonderful by jason (Posted on 10/17/2015)
This is a fantastic listen. It has some feels, plenty of action, and is just a great story. I plan on listening to this tale a couple of times. Great performances. Great story.
AMAZING by Zazu (Posted on 10/9/2015)
Love these graphic audios, I listened to audiobooks before, and didnt know what to expect but now i'm addicted to these. My fiancee found me playing video games this morning with headphones in. I listened to this book all the way through!
Civil War by Eugene (Posted on 8/19/2015)
Loved it highly recommended. #nuffsaid
Outstanding! by Benjamin (Posted on 8/9/2015)
If you liked the Civil War comic event (and not every one did), then you should LOVE this adaptation of it. This is truly an electrifying performance. I have listened to this several times, and it feels just as amazing each time. If you did not enjoy reading Civil War, you owe it to yourself to experience it through this performance.
My favorite Marvel GA by James (Posted on 7/26/2015)
The 3 min sequence depicting Peter vs Tony is worth every red cent for this audio. Off course they couldn't include every aspect of the Civil War story arc, it was just too massive of an event for one book to include. It spanned the entirety of the Marvel universe for so long; I wish there could me more audio devoted to this story, but sadly it would just go on forever. They did a great job of including all pivotal aspects of the dramatic arc.

My only gripe with this one is that it seems very lenient towards the secret avengers until the post climax. Which I'm fine with, to be honest. (CAP WAS RIGHT)
