"Civil War II: Choosing Sides" #1 cover by Jim Cheung

Marvel Comics continues to unveil more "Civil War II," with the publisher making a whole lot of tie-ins official this Saturday afternoon at C2E2 in Chicago, as part of the "Marvel: Civil War II" panel.

Along with the "Civil War II: Gods of War" miniseries from writer Dan Abnett and artist Emilio Laiso (read CBR's exclusive first interview with Abnett on the series), Marvel also announced a six-issue "Civil War II: Choosing Sides" miniseries starting in June, with a cover comprised of the previously released teasers illustrated by Jim Cheung. It's an anthology series akin to past event tie-ins like "Secret Wars Journal," exploring where Marvel characters fall in the Iron Man/Captain Marvel divide at the center of "Civil War II." The first issue includes contributions from creators Declan Shalvey (as writer and artist), Brandon Easton, Chad Bowers & Chris Sims, Goran Sudzuka and Leonardo Romero; starring Nick Fury, Damage Control and Night Thrasher.
