AMERICAN PSYCHO CONCLUSION
Distraught over his choices, the Falcon has set out to recapture Captain America's Navy counterpart, the so-called "Anti-Cap." Cap then sets off after the Falcon - which leads to the final battle between the two Captains!
Dan Jurgens is not really my favourite artist, but he's doing a pretty impressive job lately of making me question why I'm not a fan, as his work on this issue is actually quite solid. The centre piece of this issue is the big battle between Captain America and his more ruthless double, and the art conveys sheer intensity of this battle as the two men deliver a number of wince inducing attacks. In fact, the four page sequence where the two do battle is an amazing looking sequence, and Dan Jurgens deserves the highest praise I can offer. The action practically leaps off the page at the reader. The scene where the fake Captain America decides to end his life was also well presented, as was the one-page spread where Captain America is allowed to deliver the big, fight ending punch. The last page image also nicely mirrors the dramatic intensity of the cover image, which is actually a pretty rare accomplishment. Read Full Review
Also interesting: Its a shame Priest wasnt matched by old-school talents like Jurgens and Palmer from the beginning of this series. Their clarity and complete command of super-hero anatomy would have worked both to clarify Priests complex plotting and as an ironic contrast to his story about how old values are beautiful but misplaced post world-wide terror. Jurgens Cap and Anti-Cap are startling contrasts fighting across rooftops and subways, and his morbid Paris a Gothic and moody treat. Read Full Review
