Marvel Studios has spent eight years building a universe. Now it’s time to blow it up.
The heroes of Captain America: Civil War are doing what most burned-out, overworked professionals do when faced with unrelenting crisis: They’re turning on each other.

The double sized issue will feature 4 covers as seen below and will be on newsstands this Friday.
