    The cover remains true to the story without giveaways which seems a feat nowadays. Davis seems to know just how to draw the reader into the pages that follow with only a hint of things to come. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 14, 2012

    This issue may sport the best work from Alan Davis so far. Davis really nails the extended fight between Sharon and Machinesmith, with plenty of dynamic motion and some amusing robot designs. And as always, his character work is every bit as refined as his action. This arc may have been slightly underwhelming at first, but it's definitely picking up as the conclusion draws near.

    Sharon manages the heavy lifting this month in a comic where classic art meets classic script. Read Full Review

    For me, the Sharon/Machinesmith battle stole the show here, plain and simple. The other stuff(with Cap and Iron Man, and with Falcon) was good, but I've always been a big fan of Machinesmith, and like Sharon, so their battle made this issue for me. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 15, 2012

    The biggest problem with this issue is that it keeps EVERYONE in the dark too much, with Cap, Tony Stark, The Falcon, Sharon and the reader all flailing to figure out what's going on with the plot. It's a gorgeously drawn issue, but there just wasn't enough meat to it justify $2.99, much less the $3.99 that Marvel inexplicably charges for this book, among others. Captain America #9 suffers from a bad case of "middle chapter" syndrome, but gets by on its charm and good looking art, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. It will probably read better in trade, but, sadly, Bravo will still suck... Read Full Review

    Overall, a fine but unmemorable issue. Read Full Review

    If I have one big complaint about issue #9 it's that the art by Alan Davis isn't as consistent as I'd like. Although the closeups look good, many of the other panels look rushed – especially the faces of the characters in some of the action shots. Here's hoping this is just a one-time problem. Worth a look. Read Full Review
