2:120 Marvel Civil War: X-Men by David Hine

Another one taking place at about the same time and answering the question of where were the X-Men while Iron Man and Captain America and their sides were duking it out.  Easy, for those of us who don't actually follow these on a regular basis, they were trapped at Xavier's Institute like Indians on a reservation.  There were Sentinels standing guard and no one was allowed to enter or leave without permission of the government (SHIELD I think).  A few mutants came along and blasted a hole in the wall to allow members of 198 to escape but now they are being hunted down.  Cyclops, Iceman, Archangel, and Beast are trying to get to them first and diffuse the situation but someone is manipulating things and he doesn't want them calmed down at all.

Another good story where you see more of what's going on in the background with all the problems surrounding the Civil War and how things are being manipulated by outside forces.  Artwork was sooo much better than the Wolverine stuff which made it a much more enjoyable read.
