Civil War II is not just happening in the core title this summer and autumn (and possibly into winter!), but also throughout the Marvel Comics line. There have been a ton of comics connected to it and talking about it, or at least pretending to. Meet me after the jump and I’ll be discussing Civil War II comics featuring Ulysses, Karnak, Doctor Doom, Nick Fury, and the Totally Awesome Hulk, among others.
Choosing Sides, the companion title to Civil War II, is out this week, more an anthology loosely linked to the ongoing story than anything else, it treats us to tales of Nick Fury, Night Thrasher, and Damage Control. Also out this week is the newest issue of Ultimates, retelling the start of this crossover event. Check out my reviews after the jump.

That’s right! Your favourite Marvel Comics superheroes return for another big-budget adventure in Avengers: Age of Ultron!
