This is definitely a series that provides different views of the "Civil War," and the combination between the stories does have a nice literary quality. After you put the book down, it forces you to think about war and what it does to people. It makes the other Civil War tie-ins stronger, because it makes you re-read some other books like Amazing Spider-Man, Wolverine or New Avengers again trying to discover new views and angles, trying to figure out whats right and wrong. What is good or evil? Philosophical questions which arent easy to answer. Paul Jenkins is writing this book with great enthusiasm, making the whole Civil War saga something not to be missed.

Still, for readers like me who are still enjoying Millars core Civil War title, this book is a nice opportunity to see the ideas of that series explored on a wider canvas. If you look at Front Line as more of a Civil War supplement than a solid book in its own right, then its doing a fairly good job its just a shame that a writer of Jenkins calibre has been limited by editorial necessities which have got in the way of him simply telling a good story.
