Whereas the seven issues of Civil War writen by Mark Millar focused of splash pages, battles, blood and explosions, the focus of the Front Lines focused of the issues while not coming to black and white conclusions.

Some people accused the writing of being long and dry with no action, but the focus of story rather than flashy art should be precisely why you should pick up this trade paper-back. The story is split up so as to explore different aspects about Marvels Civil War; one storyline focuses of two journalist trying to uncover the truth behing the issues; another follows the arogant "super-hero" responsible for killing hundreds in a battle that sparked the Super-Hero registration act; another feature fetures different artist and writers making allegorical references between Marvels current war and historical ones.

This is a deep and thought provoking read.

I'm required to inform you that the Superhuman Registration Act -- which passed in both Congress and the Senate three days ago -- was signed into law today by the President of the United States. The registration act states that all vigilantes, costumed activists and/or hyper-powered individuals -- classified loosely as "Heroes" under the definition clauses of the act -- are required to register with local and state authorities.
