Civil War: Peter Parker/Spider-Man follows the exploits of everyone's favourite wall-crawler after the Superhero Registration Act is instigated and he joins Tony Stark's side in backing the motion. These three stories don't *really* focus on Peter himself, but rather those around him, and it looks at how things change for those in his life once he reveals to the world the true face of Spider-Man.
Lesser-known villains get in on the act, such as Will o' the Wisp and The Scarecrow (yeah; he has a Scarecrow too), and there's time spent focusing on Aunt May, Black Cat, a couple of Peter's students and, of course, MJ (who has some soul searching to do now Peter Parker and Spider-Man are one and the same).
It's a good collection with excellent artwork, although if - like me - you're not overly familiar with the Marvel universe and in particular the Civil War, it might not be the best place to start. Worth reading, but as a supplement to the Civil War series rather than a standalone.

I highly recommend this tie-in if you, for once, really want to see a character getting influenced heavily by the Civil War. The Authors and Painters are doing a terrific job telling, how the whole Superhuman Registration Act is slowly destroying not only Spiderman, but Peter Parker as well.
Highly recommended and a must have for the Civil War Reader!
