Civil War, Civil Suit in She-Hulk #8

After the disastrous events that kick off Civil War #1, a public outcry to have super heroes registered forces She-Hulk to choose a side as Marvel's top superhuman lawyer. But what side will she choose when she feels one way as She-Hulk and another as Jennifer Walters? This Civil War tie-in spins right out of the first issue of the mega-event as Jennifer Walters must use her skills as a lawyer, not her strength, to try to stem the tide of the burgeoning Civil War. Pick up She-Hulk #8 to see what Jennifer Walters' decision is; plus, you do not want to miss whose court case she handles next (especially if you're a fan of the New Warriors).

Garney Signs Exclusive and Spidey Faces a War at Home

After the horrific events of Stamford, CT in the pages of Civil War #1, Spider-Man rushes to aid the victims of the tragedy alongside many of Marvel's heroes in Amazing Spider-Man #532. Newly signed Marvel exclusive Ron Garney brings you all the Civil War tie-in action along with writer J. Michael Straczynski as Spider-Man stands on the precipice of one of the most life-changing decisions he has ever had to make. " I feel good about it, " says Ron Garney about his exclusive Marvel contract announcement. " Its nice to come back after a few years, and it feels new again and in a lot of ways it ' s a different place to come back to. It ' s like your favorite sports team – some different players, same franchise but you love it just the same because the characters are there. " Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada says of pencil-pushing penciller Garney: " Ron has the weight and heft of a Kirby, the grace and poise of a Ditko, and the soft voice and manners of an Aunt May…we love the guy. " After pitching in with the relief efforts at the site of the Stamford disaster in Amazing Spider-Man #532, Peter Parker accompanies Tony Stark to Washington once again. With the Super Hero Registration Act seeming to be a foregone conclusion, Spider-Man makes a decision that will force the heroes of the Marvel Universe to never look at him the same way again.
