Civil War Poster Book

Fine, dynamic art by Marvel’s top-tier talent. Oftentimes, a book collecting art from the epic events of super-hero soap opera pluck scenes and covers without the contexts leave a viewer mapless, but this is pretty uniformly full of Avengers charging at the camera, thrilling in its own pin-up shot. Occasionally, there’s some idea of the scene, when a couple of opposing sides fight, which works fine as well. The colors are really the stars here, and as commericart collections go, this is one heavy-hitting collection. It can be enjoyed for its pure power without caring about the characters or reading the story.
