The first issue of this miniseries is a bit worrisome as it's clear this Silver-Age style mentality is not particularly well-suited toward Bruce Jones' writing style. This in turn results in some rather awkward scenes, such as the police being able to lay out the mattress to catch the young woman who was dropped off the roof, in the handful of seconds that it took the man to deliver his villainous speech. One is also left wondering why Captain America suddenly decided to accept this assignment, as the book has him abruptly changing his mood about the entire affair without really justifying why. Still this issue does offer up a nice bit of tension as Cap deals with an injured fellow soldier, and the basic idea of Cap heading to Las Vegas to rescue a young woman from a mob boss is a solid enough premise that I'm intrigued. Then there's the always impressive work of Steve Rude who doesn't seem to get nearly the amount of work he deserves. Read Full Review
