    Someone needs to make sure Ed Brubaker continues to stay on CAPTAIN AMERICA. Cap's dealing with a serious situation as a new Scourge is killing villains that have entered the Witness Protection Program. Throw in the fact that Diamondback has a tie to this killer and was injured herself, Cap has become more focused (in other words, he's kicking a lot of butt). Zircher's art and Mounts colors makes the dark story more intense. There are two big reveals here that could anger and excite long time readers. This issue made me happy to be such a big Captain America fan. Read Full Review

    Well, I hate to say it but I saw that coming... I recall typing somewhere that I was hoping the Scourge didn't turn out to be somebody like D-Man, and sure enough, that's who it is... I've NEVER liked D-Man as a character. He does nothing for me. And now he has a kick-ass look and name. Eh, no sense harping on it I guess, it's already happened. I'll be honest, this issue was extremely good. To the point where I was actually pondering if it was perfect score material as I approached the end. And then the Scourge unmasked and REALLY hurt my enjoyment of this one. In the end, this was a great comic, but one that I think missed a golden opportunity to be a perfect comic... Read Full Review

    That said, if there is a standout star of this book, it is Patrick Zircher. He was good last issue, but he absolutely kills it this issue. As good as the action looks, the best moments are when you see the look on Cap's face. You see how angry and driven he is. Last issue felt a bit too dark, but the darkness fits now. The tone is perfect. Zircher makes you believe that this is a man that will charge head first into a Hydra base and destroy everyone inside. It's fantastic. Read Full Review

    Slowly but surely, Captain America is returning to what we expect from the book, which is a very, very good thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 23, 2012

    Since its relaunch at the end of last year Captain America has slowly been getting its swagger back. Ed Brubaker has returned to form on the series and character that made him a Marvel mainstay. Captain America #12 delivers on everything that a reader can want from a comic with strong action, character work, suspense and reveals that leave you wanting more. If you haven't given Captain America a shot I recommend picking up this latest arc as it is the perfect jumping on point for Marvel's First Avenger. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 29, 2012

    Although the inclusion of Gyrich and Dunphy does nothing to help sell me on the story, there's certainly enough here to pick this one up including some good inner monologue from Cap during his attack on the HYDRA base and the art by Patrick Zircher whose action sequences really pop. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Captain America #12 was another solid read. If you have not given this title a try then now is the perfect time to hop aboard this title. This issue delivers an enjoyable blend of action, adventure, mystery and drama all wrapped up in some good looking artwork. Read Full Review

    Overall the art is solid and so is the story as it is going is ok but I hope that something more meaningful happens in the next issue to put it back up there with the other the other books out there at the moment. Read Full Review

    Captain America #12 is a disappointment for me, with sizable problems in both the art and story. Read Full Review
