    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Aug 14, 2014

    The art in this book will not be for everyone, but I really liked it. Each character looked great, the fighting sequences had some great motion, and the large scale visuals such as the Avengers Mansion or the city scope looked excellent and really took this excellent script and showcased it to its full potential.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Aug 15, 2014

    Captain America has really upped its game, with these most recent developments having me hooked for the remaining two issues in the series. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Aug 15, 2014

    I've been saying this for over a year now: Captain America is one of the best, at least top five, comics rounding out the Marvel lineup. Writer Rick Remender's insane creativity continues to rocket Steve Rogers' adventures to another level, or as we've seen, another dimension. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Travis Bass Aug 15, 2014

    All in all, this is a really good issue that continues a story that has improved with each installment. It's not required to have read the rest of this series leading up to this arc, so if you are at all interested in reading the current Captain America, I would recommend starting with issue #22 and then getting this one. But if you have been reading this series, issue #23 begins to bring everything previously introduced to a head. This arc is shaping up to be one of the better stories of Remender's run on Cap.

    After starting out on a weaker note, this arc is building some serious momentum. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 13, 2014

    Considering the general climate of the comics industry is to draw out a story while adding as little to the status quo for as long as possible, it's perhaps not surprising how refreshing Captain America #23 is. There's action, there's new developments, there's a ton of guest stars and even some great character beats for the lead character - Rick Remender is bringing his A-game here, which makes it all the more surprising considering that "The Tomorrow Soldier" didn't really crackle off the page as a high concept. It just goes to show you that good plotting and strong characterization trump elevator pitches, and it's something I hope to see more of from Remender. While the artwork still holds this book from being all that it could be, this is definitely the most enjoyable issue of Captain America in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Aug 14, 2014

    Captain America is now in it's final stages. For those who have been following since the beginning this arc should be incredibly satisfying. For those who haven't been reading it's best to avoid this series until it finishes with issue #25 and then catch up via trade! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 14, 2014

    This issue feels a little light, but the more Rick Remender returns to his initial Dimension Z arc, the more we're seeing a return to form. Captain America might not always seems like a fit for weird sci-fi plots but taking the experimentation at the heart of his porigin and exaggerating it even further works well here. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 19, 2014

    Captain America #23 raises a few questions, a few red flags, and looks good, but doesn't back away from the most problematic aspects of this arc (re: Jet Black) but makes for an entertaining and complete single-issue read that makes me want to come back next time around. Read Full Review
