    While I'm extremely disheartened that this series is essentially going to transform into "Captain America Team Up," Brubaker and company continue to turn in some quality work. This is my least favorite issue of the run thus far, but that doesn't mean it isn't damn pretty. Read Full Review

    Once again, if you know your Cap and you dig him, this book is probably for you and you're likely already all over it. However, if you are, like myself, a bit less familiar with the character, this book is not going to help you get much better acquainted. For how steeped it is in continuity, it sometimes feels like it's written in another language, but at the very least, Francavilla makes it a veritable feast for the eyes. Read Full Review
