    All-New Captain America #6 is a high octane thrill ride that closes this arc out with a bang. Remender and Immonen have brought the new Captain America into the Marvel U with a bang and the seeds of his war against HYDRA that have been planted in this arc are fantastic. This is top flight writing and exceptional artwork and if strong superhero comics are your bag, All-New Captain America #6 is a sure bet. Read Full Review

    Regardless of the bumps in the road, however, Remender and Immonen have put together a breezy, action-packed conclusion to Sam Wilson's first arc as the All-New Captain America. While it's a shame that Remender couldn't really commit to any of the character development he teased in this issue - I guess Secret Wars will be enough to juggle, beyond questions of whether or not Sam Wilson is sterile - but this is an enjoyable enough read. I think the mighty shield is in good hands with Remender at the wheel. Read Full Review

    "All-New Captain America" #6 is a solid, satisfying conclusion to a story that has shaped the new Captain America, defined his cast and reinvigorated the franchise. Choosing to use a myriad of foes from Captain America's mythos was an inspired decision, and one that Remender, Immonen, Von Grawbadger, Gracia and Caramagna delivered quite well. This run of the star-spangled, shield-slinging Avenger is certain to be remembered fondly, and I will certainly enjoy re-reading it at some point in the future. Read Full Review

    It's too bad that this series has to come to an end to make way for Secret Wars as I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a huge fan of Remender's Cap series before this, and I honestly think I like this All-New series better. The good news is that this issue ends on a surprising cliffhanger that will lead nicely into a series focusing in on Hydra written by Remender, while the bad news is we won't be getting a monthly Sam Wilson as Cap book for at least a little while. We'll have to settle for following him into the All-New, All-Different Avengers book which I hope does him as much justice as this series has. Read Full Review

    Yeah, great way to end the book on a cliffhanger for a few months.

    I didn't feel like this issue was an essential but the final issue of Rick Remender's All New Captain America story is still pretty fun. It wraps up Sam Wilson's struggles with his past and he finally comes to terms with the hero he is. There is a slight twist at the end of this book which isn't really as significant as it should be but All New Captain America is a great story and I recommend it to any Cap fan.

    The Good: This really was a good arc to set into motion Sam earning his wings as the new Captain America. There was enough of a story to set up some main heroes, villains, and give a "birds eye" view to Sam's world. Of course the art was dramatic and set a wonderful tone that will be hard to match for whomever the incoming artist may be if the title continues past after Secret Wars. I appreciated the way that this issue set-up the incoming Secret War series as it lays the groundwork to seamlessly enter that universe and not be the typical AOA-type setting many of them are apparently taking on. It also goes far enough to give a new status quo to a couple of characters in the MU and insight into how Sam feels working with SHEILD. There are a few loose ends, which honestly may never actually get addressed. They are minimal threads to the story and in typical Remender fashion, he may pull them off the shelf in the far future to add to a long-term plan. The main question that hopefully does get answered is which flying Avenger with the female lips in Captain America #25 is working with Hydra. The Bad: Not having a solid resolution to the arc, due to the break and the change in the creative team may be detrimental to the overall flow of the narrative. While the Secret Wars series does seem to come directly from the conclusion this may be less of a worry, but that series does not appear to continue Sam's story what-so-ever. The other thing that stands out, after all is said and done, nothing truly happened. Even the final cliffhanger statement falls flat as we do not know when/if the character that may have some shaky allegiances with the heroes remains following the refresh. One character may have been changed in a way that will benefit them out in the field, and the one lost is not even grieved for as they know said character is "out there somewhere". I do like the fact that for someone reading this title they could be done with the title following this iss
