    Comic Book Bin - Hervé St.Louis Nov 12, 2006

    The artwork is the best thing about this book. The weakest part being the story drawn by Leinil Yu. I know Marvel wants to turn him into their next super star, but I have my doubts. His storytelling is confusing and except from some cool rendering, every few pages, his work is not attractive. Scott Kolins provides the strongest artwork, which should be the highlight of the next Alpha Flight series called Beta Flight. This book provides a fun break from other comic books, but is not a must buy. Read Full Review

    Although I enjoyed the Nick Fury story, I didn't enjoy it enough to continue purchasing this anthology book. Depending on the characters starring in future issues, I may come back to it if I can find them on the cheap, but spending $4.99 on one out of three stories that I enjoyed gives me little desire to return.

    With a little more concentration on quality over quantity - and perhaps an expansion of the more successful stories - this could have been a worthy addition to the Civil War event. As it stands though, it comes off as Marvel's attempt to ape DC's Brave New World taster issue (but at full price!), and despite the title, which promises an exploration of the motivation of various characters in Civil War, there's little or no attention given to how any of the characters chose their stance in the Marvel Universe's latest conflict. A cynical marketing exercise which will only be worth checking out if you're a particular fan of any of the characters or creators who feature, and if you're got a spare $4 kicking around; everyone else will manage perfectly well without it.
