GOOD CIVIL WAR BOOK

CAPTAIN AMERICA
CIVIL WAR

Is there any comic fan out there that is not a fan of Cap, or at least been one at one time. Well for any one that had been a fan leading up to this story which of course was "Civil War" then I am sure you will agree with the next sentence. Captain America only had one choice in this war and it made perfect sense for him to go against the government here. You see I had an argument with a friend recently in which he thought Cap was going against being the perfect solider for America for taking the side he did. I tried to explain to him he was being the perfect solider for America in his choice, he believes in freedom. Freedom is something this nation is supposed to believe in; therefore it made sense to me. Any way this book contains Captain America 22-24 and Winter Solider - Winter Kills.

You see that debate plus the excellent review from Madpenguin made me want to read this again. The story although in Cap's book mainly follows Sharon Carter also known as Agent 13. She is torn between the man she loves and her job, a job that at one time they were both playing for. Now she disagrees with Cap and his stance on the Superhero Registration Act. Does she follow orders and help bring the man she loves down or does she follow her heart. Also in the background The Winter Solider is working for the supposedly dead Nick Fury. And are the Red Skull and Dr Doom working together, these are all things you will read about here.

This is the kind of story that really keeps you interested or at least it did to me, it was just enough "Civil War" and just enough character development. The way Sharon is torn and the back story involved adds so much to the tale. I have to credit writer Ed Brubaker with this as he actually takes the time to let the story flow. Then of course there is Mike Perkins art work which fits the mood of the story perfectly. Very much so when we get to The Winter Soldier's story "Winter Kills". This of course is an excellent add-on here that has many a guest appearance. I will not spoil it for you but the ending is really great.

I do recommend this book especially if you are a fan of any involved from characters to the creators. This may feel like Cap is a supporting character but it is a great addition to the "Civil War" story and more importantly to Cap's story. It may or may not be a must read for some depending on what you personally think but it is still very recommendable. Pick it up if you get the chance, it is a very good book.
