3:120 Marvel Cival War: Iron Man by Gage, Knauf, & Bendis

Probably the most powerfully written of all the Civil War spin-offs.  There is a lot of Iron Man and Captain America talking, remembering, and trying to figure out how to stop the war without either side actually giving in.  There is also bits of Tony's dealing with trying to wage the war.  The last story, "The Confession", is easily the most powerful of the whole thing.  It is Tony sitting by himself telling how he knew what was coming, what he did to try and prevent it, and his feelings on how it ended.  It's heartbreaking.

The story line here was absolutely incredible and the artwork matched beautifully.  Dark, gritty where necessary, but still aethestically gorgeous.  A definite must read for any Marvel fan.
