Because you (okay, a very small percentage of you) demanded it - D-Man gets his moment in the sun!

    The writing gets a bit heavy, not thematically just the word to panel ratio is a bit lopsided, mainly at the beginning though. The pacing is strong and the characters are clear, the new Falcon seems especially cool, though I did think it was Machine Man at first. Read Full Review

    With all the trials and tribulations Sam Wilson has been through, the poor guy deserves a break. That's just what Spencer gives him here, and boy is it a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    But that all said, given the surprise results of the presidential election, it now looks more than a little prudent that Spencer didn’t double down on the politics this issue, heralding a progressive victory that wound up never materializing in real life. Instead, Captain America: Sam Wilson #15 feels life a brief respite from what has been an increasingly brutal presidential campaign, and while I personally wish we could have had a more incisive post-election message, the sheer positivity of this script might in itself be a bit of a revolutionary act in today’s heated political landscape. But a temporary breather can only be just that - temporary - and it will be interesting to see how Captain America: Sam Wilson will move forward under a decidedly more conservative presidency.

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Nov 16, 2016

    Captain America: Sam Wilson #15 is one of the lesser issues of an otherwise standout series, not because it deliberately changes the book's tone, but because it falls short of its goal, as Nick Spencer can't quite conjure the comedic magic he summoned in Astonishing Ant-Man and Superior Foes of Spider-Man. As powerfully well-done as Sam Wilson #'s 13 and 14 were, nearly any subsequent issue would have paled in comparison. This one was limping in with a folding chair-damaged kneecap before that bell even rang. Read Full Review

    This is a pretty quick fun read with no big stakes. You just learn a little more about D-Man and get to see some wrestling for charity. It does create a nice distraction from all the seriousness of Civil War II.

    Glad to see what team D-Man plays for. (Which is nice ;)) But just a bland issue.

    After last issue's heavy events, a change of pace is due--it's just not that interesting or funny
