I’m going to start off with the Marvel Comics stuff for our monthly comic book solicitations posts because the recent film “Captain America: Civil War” has just achieved a box office take of $1.11 billion dollars. That makes this the highest grossing film of the year and according to its Wiki entry it’s the fourth highest super-hero film of all time. Let’s remember this is still climbing. That said, another reason to rally behind the Marvel side first is because the “Civil War II” storyline begins this month. I’ve culled together all of the first issues along with various press insight and creative teams so let’s go.
CIVIL WAR II #1: IT’S HERE! The explosive first chapter in the comic event EVERYONE will be talking about. And we come out swinging with a blistering double-sized first issue from the creative team behind last year’s best-selling debut of INVINCIBLE IRON MAN and Miles Morales. A new Inhuman, with the ability to profile the future, emerges and the ramifications ripple into every corner of the Marvel Universe. Lines are drawn, bodies fall, and the Marvel Universe will be rocked to it’s very core. The action starts here!

CIVIL WAR II: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 (OF 4): THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN GETS CAUGHT UP IN CIVIL WAR II! There’s a new Inhuman with the ability to seemingly predict the future, and as the heroes of the Marvel Universe continue to grapple with their feelings about his very existence one thing almost everyone can agree on is that he bears a tremendous responsibility to use his powers safely. Peter Parker, aka THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, knows a thing or two about that — too bad he’s also got the ol’ Parker luck working against him.
