    While Jim Rhodes' death seemed a bit weighted and unnecessary, this issue makes sure it wasn't a waste. It, at the very least, gave Sam Wilson the push he needed to get over the wall and become great. Read Full Review

    Any Captain America fan not reading this book is missing out. Nick Spencer has done a fine job of maneuvering an African American into a traditionally white man's role; a difficult transition for any writer to undertake and find acceptance. Whether or not you like Sam Wilson as Captain America, it's difficult to read this issue and not in some way identify with another human being trying to fill a role he doesn't feel he lives up to. Sam's determination and willingness to continue to fight for what is right no matter what the haters and doubters say is inspiring. Captain America: Sam Wilson #10 is a fantastic read.

    While unessential for the ongoing narrative, aside from the tonally incorrect plot exposition, Captain America: Sam Wilson #10's importance as emotional catharsis and an example of the power of POC-led stories cannot be denied. Strides toward more widespread representation have been made in the last few years, but there are still many miles to go for the medium. That said Captain America: Sam Wilson shows that Nick Spencer, Angel Unzueta and Cris Peter are committed to promoting change by delivering heartfelt, respectful stories that add to the ongoing conversation.

    This issue is really two in one. The beginning and end center around what comes next for Sam while the middle is all about the funeral for Rhodes. The middle really shines here but the other parts are pretty disposable to me. Read Full Review

    And now, there is no follow up to the Hail Hydra business, but when Steve Rogers does show up at the funeral–it might only be a single panel –its really freakin ominous so whatever Spencer is doing with the original, its working. Read Full Review

    This issue gets by on a well-meaning and interesting premise, with some real passion from both creators, even if it doesn't all work. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jody Cardona Jun 27, 2016

    This issue felt short, but I don't really think that's a bad thing. This issue was supposed to be a tie-in, but not one of those huge side battle ones. This one was supposed to push the emotion of mourning as the world had lost one of it's greatest heroes. It feels quiet, personal, looks fantastic, and while it was a bit off-putting as the main story of the series was pushed at the beginning and end of the book while the next few issues will be focused on Civil War II I can openly say this was pretty good.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 27, 2016

    It's nice to see a tie-in issue feel necessary rather than tacked on; "Captain America: Sam Wilson" #10 is a good example of how to take an idea from a parent title and run with it in a way that supplements the event while also standing on its own as a good comic. Spencer and Unzueta do a good job here, but -- based on the final pages -- it's the next issue that's really going to stand out now that the slow burn is starting to turn into a raging inferno. I'll definitely be back next month to see that happen. Read Full Review

    We have been dealing with the fact that many people do agree with Sam as the new Captain America for a while now and it continues in this issue as Sam reflects on the loss of Rhodey and the parallels between his new position and Rhodey as Ironman. This issue is an emotional one that tries to show the cost of what Civil War will be. It works as a good tie-in, but the art does not have that same impact. It seems that we still do not know how Sam sides when it comes to the conflict that is building so it will be interesting to see where that leads.

    Calling random superheroes of color his family at Rhodey's wake is akin to getting random fellow jews out of Boro Park so they can recite the Kaddish at my funeral -- specially when, just like in James Rhodey's case, I do have family and loved ones that would do that, and hang in a backroom as they had these characters in the comic.

    Quite an interesting book which engages both with contemporary politics and the main Civil War II saga. Mainly picked it up because I liked the cover and have been a long-standing Captain America fan of Steve Rogers- but this (new-ish) take is quite interesting. Not much action here and the plot was kept fairly simple, but the eulogy delivered was moving enough to pay good homage to the deceased War Machine from the main CWII story-line. Overall a solid issue and probably worth picking up as a tie-in.

    Decent. But Spencer still has a problem with subtly in his comics. His points lose a lot of impact because of how cartoony his delivery is. The stuff related to the speech was pretty great though. Uzenta's art is fine. Nothing amazing, nothing terrible.
