While the Marvel Universe reels from the bizarre and shocking incidents of last issue, and repercussions ripple outward, the Winter Soldier finally chooses a side, after the Civil War has ended -- his own. But what are the Red Skull and his minions up to behind the scenes. These questions and more will be answered as the most shocking Cap story so far races right through the aftermath of the Civil War!

    Brubaker is handling his storyline perfectly and not letting the hype of Caps death affect his planned arc too much. He opens a great deal of possibilities for Steve Rogers eventual return and the psychological breakdown of Sharon Carter. This issue proves that Captain America is one of Marvels best books, especially given Marvel's landscape these days. The countdown is on. I believe two men are going to end the registration act and reshape Marvel: Steve Rogers and Nick Fury. But only after the Red Skull has his fun. This is my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    If someone had asked me a few months back if I would read a Captain America series without Cap in it, I would have said no. After seeing the last two issues, I plan on reading this book until it ends. Without a doubt this is Marvel's best comic, and the mix of espionage, grief, revenge, and Epting's wonderful art makes this a must buy. Read Full Review

    Captain America #26 was both a wonderful character study with excellent dialogue and plenty of emotion. Captain America #26 was also a plodding and slow issue that continued to re-hash worn out themes from the Civil War in a completely illogical fashion. Personally, the less idiotic supposed legal debates about the Registration Act the better. And the less Tony Stark bashing the better. Let's just get on with dealing with the true villain here The Red Skull. Read Full Review
