    Remender and Immonen have got one hell of a great series under way with All-New Captain America. The second issue is an entertaining read that had me locked in from start to finish and the last page floored me. I need #3 as soon as I can get my hands on it – give this one a shot.

    Plot twists, chase sequences, twisted villains and incredible action, this book has all the aspects of a great Captain America story. Sam Wilson is proving to be a perfect fit for the Captain America mantle leading us through an adventurous and fun comic. Read Full Review

    Remender tried to cram in 101 great things and succeeded. He paced the plot well, too, with intense action cut by moments of reflection. The icing on the cake, of course, is Immonen's impeccable linework, which really feeds into the solemn mood. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Dec 19, 2014

    All-New Captain America #2 makes it two issues out of two for the series in terms of quality then and Rick Remender further develops Sam Wilsons adventures as Captain America. Its handled very well and when you consider the awesome artwork brought to you by Stuart Immonen, Wade Von Grawbadger and Marte Gracia, this is one of the best books that Marvel has to offer right now. Excellent stuff, and if you're not reading this book because Steve isn't Captain America, then you're missing out on something good. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 17, 2014

    ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA #2 may be talking a familiar narrative, but it's handling it extremely well and still manages to surprise you. The creative team continues to make sure there's plenty of spectacle and huge stakes as they takes steps to make HYDRA a bigger threat while making this a character-driven experience, too. This is all about just how challenging it must be for Sam Wilson to take on an enormous responsibility and it's being presented in an incredibly entertaining way. You're really missing out on a good story if you're skipping this just because it isn't Steve Rogers in the costume. Seriously, you do know he'll eventually be back and this is a good way to give another character some much-needed depth, right? Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 17, 2014

    Hinging on action, conspiracies and even just a hint of sex appeal, All-New Captain America #2 might share a bit more with a member of the British Secret Service than it ever did a Star-Spangled Avenger. And that's actually a fun niche that the Marvel Universe - even the trippy, psychedelic Winter Soldier comic - hasn't filled in awhile. With some superb artwork and some very tight plotting from Rick Remender, Sam Wilson seems to be filling Steve Rogers' boots far better than we could have hoped. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Erik Sutherland Dec 21, 2014

    This issue is tense, action packed, and has a few unexpected twists but is still somehow generic as it is essentially a carbon copy of “The Winter Soldiers” story line. Hydra has infiltrated everything and no one is safe. If you're going to do a Hydra story you could at least try to deviate a little from the movie. It feels a little cheap. This book has some promise so hopefully it'll take the story in another direction and change it up a little. Read Full Review

    A somewhat jumbled book with some transcendent moments. Read Full Review
