    IGN - Jan 5, 2011

    It's understood that this issue is the beginning of a larger thread involving Hydra's creations, but none of the elements are unique or memorable enough to leave the reader wondering what might be waiting around the corner. An overarching conflict needs to be revealed, and preferably soon. The art from Sergio Cariello is a bit old-fashioned in tone and style, but that suits the story well enough. The problem comes in the flow between panels, particularly late in the issue where it almost seems as if certain panels were left on the cutting room floor. All in all, this isn't a bad start for Marvel's newest Cap mini-series, but Hail Hydra needs to show readers more in future installments than it has so far. Read Full Review

    "Captain America: Hail HYDRA!" is off to a very pleasing start. It's not a great book, but it sets out to do completely what it wants to do. Where the tale goes from here will be the selling point. With the switching art team there is now the possibility for change in each issue in every area, hopefully Maberry will take full advantage of this. This is a fun comic, easy to digest, and a pleasure to enjoy. If you're looking for some super-soldier shoot-'em-ups and the smarmy evil of HYDRA then this comic will sate your fun and action quota for the week. Read Full Review
