Marvel Comics on Monday provided The Continuum with a preview of Amazing Spider-Man #531 as the build-up for its Civil War event continues.

Here's how Marvel describes the issue:

"With the cloud of Civil War looming over the Marvel Universe, Peter Parker has to help Tony Stark defeat the Superhero Registration Act and as Spider-Man stop the new Titanium Man in Amazing Spider-Man #531.

"Peter accompanies his new boss Tony Stark to a hearing in Washington about whether to pass a law forcing superheros to register their identities with the government. However, Tony ends up the object of an assassination attempt by the all-new Titanium Man and it's up to Spider-Man and his new costume to take down Shellhead's old foe."

The issue is drawn by Tyler Kirkham as part of Top Cow's recent deal with Marvel. The issue is written by J. Michael Straczynski, with a cover by Ron Garney.
