This seven month mini-series has turned into eleven months.

By Marvel Press Release

The critically- and commercially-acclaimed universe-altering limited series is coming to a close, bursting with some of the most intense action and plot twists ever. Literally. While Marvel regrets the final late shipping of the issue, we are pleased to announce that there will be extra pages added at no additional cost. The final, in-store arrival date for CIVIL WAR #7 is February 21.

Says series editor Tom Brevoort, “CIVIL WAR #7 has topped out at 28 pages of story contentsix more than a normal comic. As such, we need to block in a little bit more time to make sure that Steve can get it doneespecially since these are some of the most difficult pages in the entire series to draw from a number-of-characters-on-the-page perspective.”

In addition to extra pages, Civil War is getting a shocking epilogue issue, CIVIL WAR: THE CONFESSION, brought to you by the Eisner-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev the team that brought you the Civil War prequel NEW AVENGERS: THE ILLUMINATI.

The final checklist with final shipping dates are below. To help fans and retailers, Marvel will provide retailers with an adslick that they can download showing the new cover and the updated checklist.
