Marvel’s Civil War: Updates

_*Civil War Sellouts*_

*/ Civil War/*’*/s/* opening shots have left a blazing trail of sellouts
in its wake. */ Amazing Spider-Man #530, Amazing Spider-Man #531,
Amazing Spider-Man #532/*,*/ Wolverine #42/*,*/ She-Hulk #8/*, and the
Harvey Award-nominated*/ Marvel Spotlight/* have all sold out at Diamond
in this first month of*/ Civil War/*.

Critics and fans alike have been abuzz with how terrific the*/ Civil
War/* tie-ins have been thus far. */ Civil War: Front Line/*, which is
on its way to selling out, has been chief among the tie-ins receiving a
wealth of praise.

Richard George of says, "This is perhaps the best supplement to
an event I have ever read. In the past, companies offered side stories
to mega events that did not offer much. So far, between Marvel’s
excellent shipping schedule and the overall quality of the writing,
Civil War is being drastically enhanced by the extra stories (and Mark
Millar was already doing an excellent job). Front Line is setting itself
to be nearly as important as the main title, featuring great context and
additional views to what is happening to the heroes…If you’re reading
Civil War, Front Line is absolutely critical reading."

After reading*/ Civil War: Front Line #1/* this week, be sure to pick
up*/ Civil War #2/* next Wednesday as the comic-event of the year
continues to blow readers away. Then, be sure to pick up these Civil War
tie-ins in the following order:

Thunderbolts #103 – On Sale 6/14
New Avengers #21 – On Sale 6/21
Amazing Spider-Man #533 – On Sale 6/28
Civil War: Front Line #2 – On Sale 6/28
Wolverine #43 – On Sale 6/28
Fantastic Four #538 – On Sale 6/28
