I got the free Civil War II #0 issue from Comixology and I got a free Dallas Comic Con Exclusive copy of Civil War II #1.
So my question is can you follow Civil War II without buying any of the Tie-Ins?
As I have only read two of the tie-ins so far (I don't consider ANY of the "Prelude to Civil War" banners as any sort of tie-in), and I am only going on past "events" when I say absolutely. I will be reading the X-Men and the Choosing Sides tie-ins as well as most others, but none are needed (as far as I can tell) to get the story of Civil War.
Heck, Hercules Tie-In, Civil War Gods ... something, was nothing but
Civil-War Spider-Man, was also just a story not needed, as it was just
I would say, honestly, if you wanted to get any side story, the best one would be the Choosing Sides mini. Everything else I feel will be just be typical non-important filler material, just to chase a buck. Choosing Sides (or whatever the name) I think will be more like the first Civil War's "Front Line" tie-in series. A series that told a little more, but nothing that you had to read at all to enjoy or understand Civil War I.
I would avoid them all, unless free of course
, and get just Civil War proper ... IF
that is what you are going to do.
As I will probably read most of the tie-ins, unless Dave backs out, I can relay any relevant info, if you need.
And if so, would it be worth picking up as it comes out (on Comixology) as opposed to waiting for it to show up in Marvel Unlimited?
Are you asking should you buy Civil War II, right
That is a tough question for me to answer with issue #2 only hitting tomorrow.
I will say I like the way it is going and I was impressed with Tony's dialog and both he and Carol's reasoning so far. If you feel the saem and you are enjopying it, sure!
It is good. But again, I can't really tell you to get it, yet. All I can tell you is I am enjoying it. Even without the money grabbing tie-ins
