Civil War Crossover Details

The "Road to Civil War" portion includes no surprises:
New Avengers: Illuminati
The Amazing Spider-Man #529-531
This storyline not only features the debut of Spidey's "Iron Spidey" costume but sees Peter Parker join Iron Man's quest to stave off the government's crackdown on super-heroes.

Fantastic Four #536-537
Besides tying into Civil War, these issues feature the return of Thor's hammer and of Doctor Doom.

The longer main portion of the checklist does include some surprises along the way:
Civil War #1-7
The main event by Millar and McNiven.

Civil War: Frontline #1-10
The biweekly spin-off mini-series.

Amazing Spider-Man #532-537
Black Panther #18
Cable / Deadpool #30-32
Captain America #22-24
Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways #1-4
Marvel has designed this series to bring attention to Young Avengers and Runaways, two strongly critically acclaimed titles featuring younger characters.

Civil War: X-Men #1-4
This mini-series apparently serves as the main X-Men tie-in to the crossover, which doesn't seem to affect the core X-Men titles.

Fantastic Four #538-543
Heroes for Hire #1-3
The first three issues of this new ongoing series will tie into Civil War.
Iron Man #13-14
Because Iron Man is running late (issue #6 was just published), these two tie-in issues will be offered late during the Civil War crossover.

Ms. Marvel #6-8
New Avengers #21-25
Writer Brian Michael Bendis has promised that no Marvel title will be affected by Civil War more than New Avengers. This five-issue tie-in arc will see each issue focus on a different character.

Punisher War Journal #1-3
As previously announced, this new ongoing series is necessary because Punisher plays a role in Civil War, yet his book, as a part of Marvel's mature readers MAX line, cannot tie into the general readers Civil War event.

She-Hulk #8
Thunderbolts #103-105
Wolverine #42-47
While Wolverine: Origins continues the storyline that sees Wolverine exploring his newfound memories in the wake of Houe of M, the standard Wolverine title will tie into Civil War.

X-Factor #8-9
Marvel Spotlight: Millar / McNiven
Daily Bugle: Civil War Edition
Much like the Daily Bugle edition offered for House of M, this faux issue of The Daily Bugle will tie into Civil War.
