    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 12, 2014

    It's my business to keep up with comics week after week after week, but I'd be hard-pressed to recall a debut issue that's excited me as much as All-New Captain America #1. This is a book that has got the goods - a compelling lead character, death-defying action, some fast pacing and a couple of great twists. All that, and giving a perenially overlooked superhero his due? Let's just say that if Remender and Immonen can keep this streak going, Sam Wilson will have no problems filling in Steve Rogers' shoes as the All-New Captain America. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Nov 17, 2014

    This first issue doesn't have an agenda or a larger point to get across - it simply wants to tell you a thrilling tale starring one of Marvel's new A-listers and it does so in grand style. I had high expectations for this comic going in, and I'm thrilled that All-New Captain America #1 exceeded them at every turn. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Brett I Nov 14, 2014

    This issue is an incredibly solid first issue, and has easily hopped into my most anticipated Marvel title. I can't wait to see what Remender has in store for Sam Wilson, and as long as Immonen and Von Grawbadger are producing greatness on the art, this book is a no brainer for me. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Adrienne Crean Nov 17, 2014

    Readers get to witness what seems to be Sam's first or one of his first missions as Captain America. He's deep below ground, attempting to find and get rid of the new dangerous weapon that Hydra has claimed. Immonen is on fire as each page turns faster and faster with more and more action sequences. This is one of the most impressive comics I've read in a while where fast action is kept up with fast dialogue. Immonen makes sure not to give us endless action scenes where you have to assume what each character is thinking, as their being punched in the face, or shot in the leg. Remender works well to deliver the perfect line each and every time. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 11, 2014

    Remender and Immonen deliver a story that feels fresh and classic all at once with All-New Captain #1. There is a huge amount of energy present in this comic and it stands the pressure of being such a high profile debut issue for the series. Remender writes a charming and entertaining Sam Wilson that will have readers loving the character like they never have before. Stuart Immonen will hook readers in with fantastic super hero visuals that never falter, making this story come to life and giving it an immense amount of energy & optimism. This issue is a knockout and I can't wait to read more from this all-star creative team. Read Full Review

    8CN - Matt Overstreet Nov 12, 2014

    We, unfortunately, live in a world where these kinds of things are big events. But comics have never been about living in the real world, and the characters should reflect that. Captain America is about the good guys who fight against evil-doers, and the good guys shouldn't care that Captain America is now African-American or that Thor is now a woman. Because the good guys are role models, and thisAll New Captain America is as good a role model as any other Captain America. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Nov 13, 2014

    All-New Captain America #1 is a solid start to a brand new series. While mostly just action, the first issue does a solid job of introducing our hero and showing why he is worthy of the Captain America role. With solid writing and great looking artwork, this appears to be start of an impressive new series. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Nov 14, 2014

    "All-New Captain America" #1 is a strong proof of concept for a non-Steve Rogers led book. While this certainly isn't the first time another hero has donned the shield in Steve's place, it is a bigger departure than natural successor Bucky Barnes. Wilson remains a slightly odd choice for role, something Remender even seems to acknowledge in a conversation with Ian, who many assumed to be the logical choice for the mantle. However, I would argue that the slightly left-field casting works in the book's favor, creating more interest and intrigue than the issue's standard plot would suggest. These sort of status quo changes are very rarely long-lasting, but here's hoping that Remender and Immonen (or whatever artists that may follow) are able to tell some fun and memorable stories with these characters. They're definitely off to a great start. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 12, 2014

    Marvel's latest Captain America relaunch is off to a successful start. Remender and Immonen waste no time before diving in the action and showcasing Sam Wilson in action. This issue looks great, and the dynamic between Sam and his new partner help give the series some extra flavor. The Hydra conflict may be pretty basic for now, but there's every reason to expect this new series to develop into something special. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Nov 16, 2014

    It's more of a character study than anything else. Interspersed in the character study are awesome action scenes done by the great Stuart Immonen. He is a master at his craft and it's on full display here. This is a great introduction to the character and what kind of hero he wants to be. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 12, 2014

    Remender and crew hit the ground running (or is that the skies flying?) in "All-New Captain America" #1 and give readers a strong start for a new "Captain America" comic book. The issue ends with an eye-popping final page from Immonen that will leave readers hanging. Longtime Captain America fans will undoubtedly be impressed with the final image from Remender, Immonen, Von Grawbadger, Gracia, Navarro and Caramagna and will be clamoring for more. I know I am.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Nov 12, 2014

    Change happens all the time in comics and we are seeing a new Captain America once again. Sam Wilson is not a new character but he does bring some new ideas to the role of Cap. Rick Remender gets to play around with the new status quo and we can already see we're in for a treat with this new fighting duo. Stuart Immonen's art is a great as you would expect. The action scenes are superb and wait until you see the last page. It might be hard for some to accept change but we all know these sort of changes have a way of circling back eventually. What readers need to do is embrace the change and strap in for the ride. You never know what Rick Remender is cooking up and you won't want to miss out on the fun. Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Mike Sains Nov 13, 2014

    While not perfect, All-New Captain America establishes itself well with this new #1. Sam and Nomad are an interesting team with one heck of an interesting dynamic. To quote Sam, cronyism beats nepotism. Personally I think were better for it, as Sam is not just the obvious choice, but the fan favorite. And the added flavor of old man Steve Rogers as the comic relief is a nice touch. It cant be denied. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 14, 2014

    Still, even those are minor complaints, and the amount of effort put into the character work for heroes and villains alike shows on the page. I'm a long-term fan of Sam Wilson as a character, and I'm happy to see that he's not being immediately set up for failure in what will probably be a short tenure (I'm saying 24 issues or less) in the red-white-and-blue costume, but instead celebrated and given a mission worthy of a character this cool and this established. All-New Captain America #1 is a solid outing, building off not only the last volume of Captain America, but the entire history of the character, putting Sam Wilson in a new role and a flattering new light, and looking good in the doing.

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Nov 18, 2014

    Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen deliver a fun, exciting and wonderful looking first issue that starts a new era for Captain America. Immonen shows just why he could be considered one of Marvel's best pencillers as this heavy on the action first issue allows him to choreograph some intense and exciting action sequences with a last page will leave you wanting more, as it looks as though things are about to get even tougher for Sam. We all know Steve Rogers will be back sooner or later, but for now it's good to know that Sam Wilson and this creative team seem more than capable of delivering some "All-New” stories about this “All New” Captain America. It should be fun while it lasts. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Eric Lund Nov 17, 2014

    With strong characterization and engaging script, this issue sets the stage of what readers can expect in future issues. These new adventures seem to be different in tone than the past Captain America arc, giving this story a fresh new take on the character while still maintaining the core of who Captain America is.

    Comics Bulletin - Lance Paul Nov 24, 2014

    I would say that the only negative of this fun first issue is the thought that it will soon be over, and Lady Thor and Captain African-America will revert back to their bygone counterparts. As forward-thinking as Marvel may be, theyll still follow the dollar once movies start rolling out again. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills Nov 14, 2014

    All-New Captain America #1 is a fine start to the book's new status quo. Remender starts things off simple, with an easy-to-follow, continuity-light storythat puts new lead Sam Wilson right into the thick of the action. He's got a different background than Steve Rogers, and different ideals. He's not just Rogers redux, and that will only benefit the series going forward. Marvel put a lot on the line introducing this new Captain America and spreading the word in the mainstream media, and it looks like the project is in good hands. Read Full Review

    The Villain Jun 11, 2016

    Sam Wilson proves to be worthy of the name Captain America in the All-New Captain America issue 1. All the facts that you need to know to read this comic are on the very first page and then you are all up to date and should be able to enjoy it to the fullest. There is a little bit of a subs plot involving Sam Wilson's family. I like that the new Captain America has Nomad as a sidekick. There is a lot of good humor in here that reminds me a lot of the Falcon from the MCU. Its really just a fun time. Sorry Steve Rogers but I don't really miss you.
