Civil War finale delayed, but Scripps-Howard still sugarcoats everything
Let's note for the record that Marvel is not sending out press releases alerting us the gi-humongous crossover storyline holding up virtually every title has been delayed again. The final issue of "Civil War," which was originally scheduled for November and then January, now won't appear until February. Probably.So let's see, the finale to this utterly worthless crossover has been delayed (they seem to refrain from being critical as they discuss it), yet Scripps-Howard is going along and recommending a couple of related titles simultaneously. But really, what's the use? One of the most insultingly politicized storylines in recent years, and it's unlikely that any of these connected books will be worth it either.
In the meantime, there's plenty of "Civil War" to go around, including "Civil War: The Return" (probably of Thor) No. 1, "Black Panther" No. 24 (where T'Challa joins Captain America's guerrillas), "Blade" No. 5 (featuring Wolverine) and "Punisher War Journal" No. 3 (Punny vs. Cap). Not to mention "Ultimate Civil War Spider-Ham Crisis (featuring Wolver-Ham)" (all titles $2.99), in which Marvel parodies its own story with anthropomorphic animals subbing for the usual heroes.
