What did I just read? 31 mai 2012
Par A. Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was intrigued by this when it was first announced, because I thought it would be fun to relive the event, and be able to delve into Tony and Steve's minds while their friendship became yet another sacrifice in the Civil War.

Yeah, that didn't happen.

I will fully admit that I don't read these comics for the sake of seeing superheroes fight. For example, the new Avengers vs. X-men event I don't even care about, because the fighting doesn't interest me. That's what Marvel vs. Capcom is for. I don't want that in my comics. I care about these comics because of the human element. I love these characters. All of them. This event is painful for me because of everything that happens between our heroes-- how one simple opinion splits years of friendship and adoration for everyone involved and causes a lot of senseless fighting and deaths. This is why I thought that a prose version of Civil War was such a great idea, because we could get a better understanding of just what happened.

Instead, what you get is a rushed version of the events, leaving out almost all the character development.

All the pivotal scenes between our two main characters were cut out of this novel. Steve and Tony, in fact, only are together three times in this novel: at the funeral, the first trap and the second trap. We never really see any of Steve's turmoil, and his decision to lead the resistance is kind of just assumed and never explored (I mean, because really, you know that CAPTAIN AMERICA has to have issues with breaking the LAWS OF AMERICA). And for all the lack of grief Steve experiences for having to fight against Tony, they could have been complete strangers in this novel. Gone is the "you gave me a home" heart wrenching sequence. For being one of the two main characters, Steve gets 2 or 3 chapters in this book from his perspective, while Tony gets a large portion of the book (I should also mention that Tony is Extremis-less in this, one of the many many changes). Steve, in the end, comes off as a little off his rocker, and made me question what happened to the character of Steve Rogers. Instead of being torn between both sides of the argument because of the main characters making valid points, I found myself being horrified by how the supporting characters were acting on each side, thus torn between which side would be the lesser of the evils. Not the same predicament I found myself in while reading the comics.

There is also a lot of Spiderman in this. A LOT. Too much, really, for not being a big factor in the argument (although Tony tries to convince the reader otherwise). In fact, Tony's relationship with Peter plays a bigger role than his relationship with Steve, which by the cover of the book, you really wouldn't think was the case. I understand that a lot of people really like Spiderman, but Tony discusses in the book why he thinks Peter is one of the most powerful metahumans out there. It was at that point in the book, I started to be leery of it, because REALLY? There are so many more powerful metahumans than Peter Parker. (I would also like to mention something that could be considered a writer's nit-picking, but during the Spiderman portions of the book, in the narration the word "Spidey" is used instead of "Spiderman." Daredevil is shortened to DD and the Fantastic Four is changed to FF. This would be fine if it was dialogue and would be Peter calling them these things, but it was the narrator, and it was only for Spiderman's parts, so it was really jarring to suddenly have it be so informal.)

The book starts well, with great intentions, but by the halfway point, I was a bit bored, and 3/4 through I was ready for it to be over. The only highlight of the book is ending it where it did, because it makes Tony's story look like it has ended on a high note. But those familiar with the end of Civil War (because this doesn't go all the way to the end), know that everything is about to turn sour for Tony.

If I could get my money and time back, I would.

the Graphic Audio production is an excellent adaptation 14 avril 2014
Par Jem - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I had already read all the Marvel Civil War graphic novel collections when I discovered Graphic Audio's production. I was looking for upcoming Marvel releases when this popped up.

I don't normally listen to audio books because I can read so much faster. However, the ones I have enjoyed have had full casts, like this one. GraphicAudio also uses sound effects and music/score to enhance the story. I found it to be more like a radio show than "a movie in your mind," mainly because of the substantial use of a narrator. The audience can't see the characters, so there is a lot of description of what people look like or are doing to set the stage. The voice actors are all very good, and I had no trouble differentiating between the various characters. The story flowed smoothly.

The full event encompasses 7 large hardcovers, so naturally a lot has been cut. Still, the adaptation is surprisingly faithful to the main event itself. Most of the cuts come from the tie-in material. Just as is the case with most book-to-film adaptations, the book is better. However, this audio production is excellent and a nice companion - even for those who have already read the graphic novels. I loved hearing the tone of voice when the characters were conversing; something you don't get with printed stories. At nearly six hours, this is a great option for long road trips. The story is a bit dark, so probably not good for the younger set but certainly teens and adults should enjoy it. Overall, this was very entertaining and I will definitely buy more titles from Graphic Audio, in particular the Marvel titles.

Note: this Audio book is still available direct from the publisher, Graphic Audio, along with other Marvel and DC audio productions.

Decent idea - more please 21 novembre 2013
Par Culleton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This is an interesting companion read to the trade paperback of the same title.

In case you're not in the know, Civil War was a major event in Marvel comics a few years back. It involved multiple comic titles, all tying-in and weaving in to the storyline. This novelisation is therefore also a tie-in to the story.

I was sceptical at first but I enjoyed the read. You do not need to read the comic but it helps, and the novel gave me a deeper understanding of what goes through the minds of the main protagonists, which are Iron Man and Captain America. Spiderman also plays a big part in the whole event, and also features quite a lot in this book, but other popular characters appear throughout as well.

This won't win any literary prizes, but it's an enjoyable read, and it's an easy read. Comic book fans, young and old, should be able to get into this, and is a great idea to get the younger generation picking up books.

I'll definitely be looking at more Marvel prose novels.

Oh, oh. The Avengers are in trouble.

Word is that the third and fourth installments of the critically and popularly well received 2012 live-action Marvel Comics Avengers movie will be a two-part story based on the “Civil War” graphic novel by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. Judging from Stuart Moore's adaptation, a (text-only) novelization of the graphic novel, let us hope that it is only roughly based on this story.

“Civil War,” which is set in the “Marvel Universe,” i.e., the world in which the Marvel Comics characters all live (and there are a lot of them, including the Avengers and the X-Men), follows a violent split in the superhuman community after the U.S. Government, following a terrible superhuman-related explosion that kills school children, decides forcibly to register all heroes or face imprisonment. Captain America and his rebel allies face off against government-aligned heroes led by Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Acting Director Maria Hill. (S.H.I.E.L.D. is a UN-chartered military organization that is somehow tolerated in the Marvel Universe's U.S.) The book's Agent Hill is not like the movie version; she is thoroughly unlikeable. You'll also read a version of Iron Man that you'll not love.

I haven't read the graphic novel, but I suspect that it works because of excellent drawing and creative interplay between word and art. In a novelization, one expects the author to translate the visuals into powerful and moving words. Moore writes credibly—there's surprising little cheesiness to a story involving characters with names like Hulkling and Jack O'Lantern—but he fails to build up dramatic tension or convey a convincing fight scene in words. In the book's climactic fight scene, for instance, he basically says that there are a lot of superheroes fighting in the air. Well, that's exciting, isn't it? Moreover, there's no character development and no pathos; I didn't care what happened to the characters. The burial scene following a character's death was almost comical, but not because it was deliberately so.

But beyond that, I think the entire concept is problematic: first, there are far too many superhumans in it to make the story more than a sketch at 340 pages or so (with large type at that). You'd have to write a tome as long as “War and Peace” to make sense of so many names flitting by (and even then Tolstoy had the good sense to focus on a handful of people). Second, superheroes sparring with one another has limited appeal. Beyond the “could Captain America take on Iron Man” sport of it, there's not much to like about characters you like fighting with one another, unless, perhaps, you're a divorce attorney. Anyway, we've seen this story before in a way, haven't we? It's like the fight between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants, except that we kind of don't like the latter group.

To make this “Civil War” idea really work, you'd have to create a truly compelling reason for a breakdown in trust that results in characters who normally are diehard friends to harm one another. It has to be like, well, the American Civil War, where brother fought against brother. And then you should have them reflect on the absurdity of it all, and yet keep them trapped within that absurdity. They know it's stupid to fight but they can't stop. Finally, you have to offer some sort of resolution that leads to healing. When you step back from it all, you then have to wonder, was any of that fun? At least, I hope that's what Marvel Studios thinks about as it prepares to film the “Civil War” movies.

My recommendation is to seek out the graphic novel or, better yet, wait for the movies. Either choice, however, will undoubtedly be more entertaining than this book.

A review of the Audiobook by GraphicAudio 9 avril 2013
Par DWD's Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Adapted from the graphic novel series by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven
Published by GraphicAudio in 2013
Multi-cast performance
Duration: Approximately 6 hours.

At the start of this review I want you to know that I am a fan of comics, but not a fanboy (and I use that term with affection since I am a fanboy of other things, just not superheroes). I watch most of the movies, read a few graphic novel collections from time to time that are several years old that I find in my local (and excellent) public library. I talk comics with a friend of mine who is a serious fan, but I am not. I have never been to a comic book store. I have no t-shirts with superhero logos. The only superhero movie I own is the Adam West Batman movie.

However, I am a huge fan of the work that GraphicAudio has done over the years with its adaptations of DC Comics graphic novels. They promise "A movie in your mind" and they have never failed to produce high quality audio dramas that sound like old-fashioned radio plays with better sound effects, special music and usually more than twenty actors plus a narrator. The fight scenes are amazing, the sound effects are always top notch.

Two or three years ago, I was asked on a message board if GraphicAudio ever performed anything by Marvel Comics. I confidently said that they did not and probably never would because DC and Marvel are like Pepsi and Coke - forever in conflict. I assumed Marvel would eventually decide to go with another publisher and that was that. Boy, am I glad that I was wrong. Marvel and GraphicAudio working together means that there will be twice the opportunities to let GraphicAudio do what they best with the very best superhero stories, especially if their first one, Civil War, is any indication of what is to come.

Marvel's Civil War is a "reboot" of the Marvel universe. It is not a fundamental change like the Star Trek re-boot that came with the last movie. Spiderman is still Spiderman and Iron Man still flies around and tries to control everything through Stark Industries. But, some minor characters were literally killed. Groups like S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Avengers are forever changed as well.

Since I am not a fanboy (once again, said with affection) in my mind I placed this audiobook a year or two after the events in the movie The Avengers just to make the story work for me. There have been some developments, though. The Hulk has disappeared. Nick Fury and Thor are dead and no one knows for sure how or where they died. Spiderman has just been convinced by Tony Stark to join the Avengers. Spiderman is also getting an Iron Man type suit that works with his abilities free and clear from Tony Stark.

This audiobook is a dramatization of the 2012 novelization of the rather extensive comic book series that made up the Marvel Comics Civil War. There are some substantial differences between the two story lines.

The story begins with a group of young superheroes called the New Warriors tracking down a group of supervillains in Stamford, Connecticut. They attempt to apprehend the villains and during the fight one of the villains causes himself to explode rather than be captured (the bad guys appear to have been using illegal drugs just before the fight so this is a serious case of impaired judgment). The explosion is massive and kills more than 700 people and causes a massive public outcry against untrained, irresponsible masked vigilantes who cause more damage than the outlaws they apprehend.

Within days the federal government has responded with sweeping legislation (negotiated with the help of Tony Stark) that requires all "meta-humans" be registered, unmasked, trained and licensed by the federal government and become federal employees and serve in a federally regulated superhero team working through S.H.I.E.L.D. Each team will be assigned to a state. Meta-humans who fail to comply will be hunted down, arrested and incarcerated in a special prison without any sort of trial. They will be released only if they decided to comply.

This is not a new idea in superhero stories. D.C. Comic's The Dark Knight deals with a government that has had enough of superhero vigilantes as does Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles but Civil War creates its own distinct look at this concept.

Spiderman comes out of the shadows and becomes the symbol of this new movement when he unmasks himself during a Tony Stark press conference. Soon, his life is a disaster as old enemies and the press harass him at home and he loses his job once his newspaper figures out he was faking his Spiderman stories and pictures for all of those years.

Captain America decides that this new policy reminds him of the World War II era Japanese internment camps and there are some similarities. Imprisonment based on who you are, not what you have done. Young Japanese men could not leave the camps unless they agreed to fight for America in the army in Europe. Imprisoned superheroes cannot leave prison unless they agree to serve the federal government as meta-human police. Captain America becomes the leader of those that refuse to register, Tony Stark/Iron Man is the leader of the group that complies and a war of words quickly becomes a super-sized fight and not everyone survives.

Spiderman serves as the symbolic fulcrum of the argument, swinging back and forth between the two until he finally makes a decision.

One of the best things about science fiction is its ability to take a current event topic and turn it on its head and still be able to continue the discussion. In this case, this book discusses a number of issues, including:

-Group safety vs. individual freedom and another person's rights;

-Negotiating away your rights in exchange for safety;


-The coerced use of behavior-modification techniques;

-How far can corporate information gathering go?;

-Combined corporate/government power vs. the rights of the individual;

-Do you support America because it is your home or because it protects your rights?

The conflict between Tony Stark and Captain America continues until it gets to the requisite climactic fight scene (this is a superhero story, after all). Personally, I loved this story until the clunky ending where one side cedes to the other. It was all rather anti-climactic compared to the build-up and it just did not work very well when compared to the rhetoric and drama that filled the rest of the story.

If Marvel was looking to re-boot their universe this book does that in a way that seems rather natural. No time traveling enemies destroying worlds or killing a superhero's parents. In this case, the politics of being a superhero gets in the way and changes everything.

Note: I was sent this audiobook by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Yes, I truly did like this audiobook. I liked it a lot.
