    While Sam Wilson may have hit the emotional skids, his book is back on track. Read Full Review

    There have been a couple eyebrow-raising moments in Nick Spencer's run of this series but they mostly have to do with Sam upholding respectability politics and not being nearly as revolutionary as he thinks he is. But, again, this is a complaint about the series' politics, which couldn't possibly please everyone and not the storytelling. As far as the story goes, it's progressing just as it needs to, especially for a comic where the main villain is society and not some masked, narcissistic millionaire. Read Full Review

    Nick Spencer's greatest strength with this series is that he uses Sam Wilson to showcase a different sort of Captain America, one who struggles to do the right thing and even wrap his mind around what the right thing actually is. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Mar 16, 2017

    Captain America: Sam Wilson is one of the more challenging books in Marvel's line, and that's a good thing, even when the book's narrative and message find themselves at odds. Read Full Review

    Spencer knows how to weave an emotional story. I know Wilson represents us all but it's pretty hard when half of those people he is trying to represent are trying to destroy the other half. Renaud's art is also great. But this story is relevant and poignant and is awesome, plain and simple.

    This issue seems to recap in narration and footage the message that was already established throughout the Rage arc for even the most naive readers. To further make Rage a martyr he is placed by the establishment into a super-villain prison and is beaten nearly to death. It further raises the tension, and I suppose shows how even though this is a highly publicized trial, the truth can be ignored. Spencer has a lot to say on society and he preaches it at Ayn Rand levels in this issue. This just left me thinking this is the chapter that is keeping you from the chapter you know is inevitably coming so is a chore to read. The art is still strong, but we are missing all of Cap's supporting cast. Which also makes this chapter a chore. While still well built this issue just lacks necessity. We could have found out in the next chapter without experiencing it that Rage was moved and beaten. We will see where the next moments take us.
