    This is a pretty good, but just short of great, entry into the Marvel "Art of the Movie" series. The main thing which holds it back from 5 star excellence for me is the use of double-page spreads. I really hate those in art books, because you lose so much in the valley. (I didn't buy the Doctor Strange one for that very reason.)

The main thing which holds it back from 5 star excellence for me is the use of double-page spreads. I really hate those in art books, because you lose so much in the valley. (I didn't buy the Doctor Strange one for that very reason.) Sometimes it doesn't matter when art gets bisected, but in this case there were often characters lost in the fold, and it disrupts the action splash scenes, notably in the big airport battle. I did find it interesting that with all of the character design in this book, there's literally nothing about Spider-man. After I finished, I went back through it thinking I had missed some pages, but he's just not there. He's only in 5 pictures total and in a couple it looks like he was added after the fact. Only one shows him in a costume that somewhat resembles the final film version. I suspect that's because Spider-man was such a late addition to the movie that they didn't have time to include him in the book. The deal between Disney and Sony did have a very 11th hour feel to it, and he is barely integrated into the story at all.(view spoiler)[ The entire section where Tony flies back to NYC to recruit Peter feels like a separate mini-movie contained inside the larger story. (hide spoiler)] I've not been a fan of the storyboards included in other tomes because they seemed more like filler than a real value-added proposition, but here they are more significant. That's primarily because the overhead plan of the tunnel fight with Cap, Panther, Falcon and Bucky is different from what we usually see, and the fact that the storyboard artists were key in figuring out not just the flow of the action scenes but actually helped craft the story. You can see the iterations of the airport fight as they decided which characters were on which team, and especially the particulars of the scene where Hawkeye recruits Wanda. More than any of the other art books, this really underscored the collaborative nature of this project. I also really enjoyed the (apparently) early explorations of both fight scenes and weapons. The stuff with Hawkeye's trick bows was neat, and one where he shoots two guys coming from opposite directions was pretty funny. Maybe they'll use that in a future film. All in all this is decent addition to the art book series.

    After being disappointed with the Art of Marvel’s Ant-Man, I thought perhaps the Marvel art books were becoming redundant. How many ways can you present concept art and still keep it interesting? After receiving The Art of Civil War, I realized the underlying material is essential. While Ant-man was a fun film, his origin and “world” were fairly straightforward and even mundane compared to other heroes. Civil War is more epic in scope, and the art showcases that.

How many ways can you present concept art and still keep it interesting? After receiving The Art of Civil War, I realized the underlying material is essential. While Ant-man was a fun film, his origin and “world” were fairly straightforward and even mundane compared to other heroes. Civil War is more epic in scope, and the art showcases that. The Art of Civil War was excellent, on par with the two Avengers films art books. This is partly due to so many characters taking part, in particular brand new ones (Spidey and Black Panther), but also because the environments were spread globally. Further, rather than just being inspired by decades of comics, Civil War has a very specific comic event that underlies the story. This enhanced the narrative sections immensely as we see how the two compared. Some art depicted characters both Team Cap and Team Iron Man, as the line-up was still being worked out in the early stages. It was great to see concept art for unused fight sequences and the various costume upgrades (though I was surprised at the number of pages devoted to Crossbones considering his brief appearance!). The book has made me very excited for the inevitable Phase 3 films' art books. The book has the same production values as previous entries, high gloss pages, full color, with the matching slipcase. A beautiful book. Overall, this was a worthy addition to the Marvel art book collection. Highly recommended.

    This book sets out to showcase the concept art for the Captain America: Civil War film, and it delivers. Not only is the art an interesting addition to the film but it is absolutely stunning. Alongside the art are pieces written by various creatives who worked on the film, which enhances the way in which you see the film. It’s not the sort of book that’s going to appeal to everyone as you have to already be a fan of the film. However if you do tick this box, then you do not want to miss it.

    Yes, it's got some great artwork, but "The Art of Captain America: Civil War" also serves as a chronicle of the making of the movie, showing a bit of the creative process behind the design of characters, vehicles, costumes and even sets and action sequences. It's a visually arresting book, but also a pretty fascinating one, since it shows a bit of the actual making of a film, and the thought process that goes behind some key visual and even storytelling decisions.

    3.5 stars Because this is a library book and we have very few copies in circulation, I knew I wasn't going to see this for a while once I returned it because of all the holds. So I felt obligated to actually read it from front to back unlike with some of the other ones. There was a lot more character panels in this one than the others, which was my favorite part, but some of the design changes between costumes are so minute it takes a few minutes of looking to even spy the difference.

There was a lot more character panels in this one than the others, which was my favorite part, but some of the design changes between costumes are so minute it takes a few minutes of looking to even spy the difference. I didn't mind the focus on environment so much in this book, because environment clearly played a big part in the plot. Where they fight dictates how they fight and how much damage they do. So it was interesting to learn their motivations for certain things. I'd like to watch the movie again with all of these little things in mind, like lighting in the underground weapon silo. There are so many things they were looking at, from the costumes, the sets, the lighting, the atmospheres, to even camera angles, that when you watch the movie and it feels so natural it's hard to believe they manipulated everything to be carefully chosen.

    I love the smell of a brand new art book. Some interesting stuff in here but this art book doesn't seem to be as comprehensive as The Winter Soldier art book. Probably because Marvel continuously tries to cover up the fact that this movie originally wasn't Civil War and the fact that spidey got chucked in last minute. (*siiiiighhhhhh*) A fascinating point was that Agent 13 (Sharon Carter) appeared to be in the artwork for the tarmac scene at the airport yet wasn't there in the movie (WHY NOT RUSS I love the smell of a brand new art book.

(*siiiiighhhhhh*) A fascinating point was that Agent 13 (Sharon Carter) appeared to be in the artwork for the tarmac scene at the airport yet wasn't there in the movie (WHY NOT RUSSO BROS???!!) since she randomly disappeared after her awkward kiss with Steve. Which was so odd for a character that was promo'd so hard yet had barely any screen time. I would love for the real story behind this movie to come out one day. Including the original script that apparently wasn't Civil War and if you're looking for any clues to the real work that went behind this movie this art book really doesn't offer anything apart from a brief insight that there was a bigger story originally intended for Crossbones and the other Winter Soldiers more than likely Sharon Carter. As usual, beautifully presented, laid out etc.

    I'm not giving this book the full 5 stars for one simple reason: there isn't any real discussion about how the final choice for Spider-Man's costume came about and no representation of the design development as in the case of other characters. He's still in there, though - commented upon and shown in action and group shots - and I'm sure that the art book for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' will delve into things in more detail. The book still comes highly recommended for fans of the film and anyone int I'm not giving this book the full 5 stars for one simple reason: there isn't any real discussion about how the final choice for Spider-Man's costume came about and no representation of the design development as in the case of other characters.
