    It's a very solid issue and I'm so high on it because this is a blueprint of how to follow up a widely acclaimed issue with a tie-in. It's an unenviable task, but Spencer wrote the heck out of this book.  Read Full Review

    Nick Spencer does a fine job keeping things interesting within the guidelines of this crossover event, while also tackling a significant character's return to form. I cannot wait to see how the other heroes react to Steve being back as Captain America and how he fits into the world again. And for that reason alone, this issue is well worth the read.

    Captain America: Sam Wilson #8 isn't the most steady of penultimate issues, but with the end of Standoff in sight, Captain America: Sam Wilson is poised to become a very different title. Read Full Review

    Captain America: Sam Wilson #8 did exactly what it needed to, touching on Steve's regained youth in an engaging manner, whilst at the same time setting up the finale of “Standoff.” During this we were given some gripping dialogue, and despite the misuse of one particular character, the issue as a whole was worth the purchase.

    IGN - Levi Hunt Apr 21, 2016

    This issue constantly shifts scenes, hardly managing to devote three pages as at a time to a situation. Yet, the book's pace still crawls with a snails pace because those scenes are all so overly wordy and ultimately don't accomplish much. Read Full Review

    The Villain Oct 18, 2016

    I haven't read every Standoff tie in so this issue does a pretty good job of getting the reader up to date with what has happened so far. Steve Roger's has returned to his young age once again, but they don't really give him or Sam Wilson enough time to shine. They focus too much on the group of villains outside of a cool moment between Bucky, Sam and Steve. It does serve as a pretty solid set up to what will likely come in the finale of Standoff.

    There is less action to this issue. It seems like they were trying to answer some questions and help set-up the future of the three men that once acted as Captain America. The art is on point but it is nothing that will really draw you in. As far as the Standoff story, there was a lot of premise in heroes trying to keep a town of villains under control and this issue does not dive into that (the last issue is better for that). We see a lot of Baron Zemo becoming the big villain just in time for his cameo(?) in the Civil War film making you think they are using this for marketing.
