Didn't want to start a new thread, so I'll just ask you guys here. I've been hearing a lot about this Civil War mini-series coming up and it got me hyped. So, what I want to know is that: 1. What do I need to read in order to keep up with the Civil War? I've heard that Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Namor, The New Avengers, etc etc will be participating in the war. Is it necessary to read their comics first? 2. Are there anything important about the Civil War I should know? 3. Will I miss out on anything if I start reading the first issue of Civil War when it comes out and not read the tie-ins? 4. Will the New Avengers be a big part in the Civil War? 5. How did it all begin? Thanks in advance.
