    With each issue of this Captain America series, Rick Remender wins me over more and more. It's great seeing some follow up from the previous arc rather than just immediately jumping into the next one, something we've seen other writers do in other series. Remender adds a certain level of humanity into his version of Cap and seeing this tough old soldier continuing the fight while trying to deal with everything is incredible. Carlos Pacheco's art and Dean White's colors makes a great issue even better than you'd think possible. There is still more to see. There should be more fall out for Cap as he continues to deal with his time in Dimension Z. Seeing this finally play out in the current Marvel Universe will be fascinating. The next issue can't get here fast enough. Read Full Review

    There is so much story packed into these 20 pages and they are executed exquisitely. If you have never read an issue of Captain America or you've been enjoying Remender's run all along, you'll be fully engaged. Captain America #11 is a pivotal issue and powerful jumping on point.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Sep 11, 2013

    Carlos Pacheco joins the stellar art team in this issue and he fits right in. His style is a little cleaner than Romita Jr's, but with Klaus Janson and Dean White still around, the series doesn't lose a step. What we get here fits perfectly with what came before and helps give the series a cohesive look and feel. Captain America #11 looks great on every page and in every panel. It'll be great to see these guys handle some action scenes, which are clearly on the horizon. If you have been waiting to read this series, wait no more. Jump on in. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a strong issue that begins the next chapter of Steves new life with some real emotional resonance. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The first story arc for Marvel NOW!'s Captain America title used flashbacks to dig to the root of Rogers' personality. With issue #11, it's a fresh start. Remender has proven he's got the character down pat, and he's already boldly taken immense strides in making sure that Captain America is a title fans can enjoy. And now that the Captain is back in America, it looks like he'll have some interesting conflicts ahead as he deals with an American soldier causing trouble abroad. Read Full Review

    We know Steve Rogers will eventually find his way but it is the journey that keeps the reader coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 12, 2013

    A slow issue that really take its time to show the evolution and the many interactions between some of the key characters. There may not be as much action as the previous issues, yet the introspective look combined with the detailed and evocative art by Pacheco, Janson and White makes for a good reading experience anyway.

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Sep 12, 2013

    Oddly enough, Carlos Pacheco picks up where John Romita Jr. left off. This is odd to me because each man should have been doing the other work. Pacheco’s darker shadowing and more realistic pencils would have helped the Dimension Z story. John Romita Jr., one of my personal favorites, would have been perfect for the return of Cap to his own time. Though I love Romita Jr., his blockish characters never fit the dire nature of the Dimension Z arc. Pacheco’s work here is strong, his shadowing nicely executed. The softer pencils of the flashbacks work well against the stronger, heavier inks of the current timeline. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Sep 16, 2013

    Remender's work on "Captain America" has been tonally strong since day one, and issue #11 is a reminder of exactly how good his grasp of the character is. It's a take quite unlike Brubaker's, but still entirely valid. The decision he makes at the end of this issue is haunting and pensive, and feels like something Brubaker's Cap would never have done. That Remender makes it work is proof that following a critically acclaimed run isn't always a poisoned chalice. Read Full Review

    In regards to the story, there are some nice character moments with Steve as a child as he copes with the loss of his mother, and how those losses relate to those mentioned above. We also get to see how Jet starts to fit into this new world, and B-level villain Nuke shows up which looks as though will lead Cap into his next confrontation. For the most part I enjoyed this issue, but the emotional beats of the story didn't have the effect it was going for and the appearance of Nuke felt as though it was just forced in to move the story along. I was such a fan of the first storyline that I'm on board to see what writer Rick Remender will put Cap through next, I just felt that this issue could have had some stronger emotional moments for all that Cap has been through and lost.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Sep 14, 2013

       I've been buying Cap's comics since he returned to the Marvel Universe in the '60s - but this past year has just been painful. As difficult as it may be, it's time for me to take a break until a new writer signs on. I'll miss him - in many ways Cap is my favorite hero. But I just don't see much of the hero I've admired in these pages anymore. Read Full Review
