IGN: Civil War II #8 Review

Recommended Posts

There are clear comparisons to be drawn between the execution of Secret Wars and that of Civil War II. Both were major event crossovers that fell significantly behind schedule. Both fell further behind schedule thanks to the decision to expand the story with an extra chapter. And in both cases, Marvel elected to delay the series and allow the original creative team to finish telling their story, even after the rest of the Marvel Universe had already moved on. The difference is in the payoff. Secret Wars #9 served as a beautiful finale to Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic's sweeping superhero saga. The fact that it arrived months after the start of the All-New, All-Different Marvel relaunch scarcely mattered. Civil War II #8 doesn't have anywhere near that impact. This issue merely serves as a dull, unremarkable finale to an event that's struggled to justify its very existence.
