    Another consistently good output by Brubaker. Epting and Perkins are turning in quality art on a regular basis too. They make you look forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Brubaker has turned Captain America into one of the best books on the market and this continues even with the main character dead. Do yourself a favour and pick this book up along with any back issues or TPB's you can find. Read Full Review

    As much as I miss Captain America and wish for his return, if Brubaker can keep this story interesting and keep it rolling like it has been, and if Mike Perkins and Steve Epting continue to deliver some of the finest artwork around, then I can wait a little longer for Steve Rogers to toss that might shield. This series continues to rock the house, the pacing is perfect, the art is perfect and Brubaker proves that a great story can still keep a title on top even when its main character is gone.

    Captain America continues to be one of Marvel's best reads on the market. And amazingly enough, this title is just as good without Captain America as it was with him. That is a real testament to Brubaker's writing prowess. Not too many other titles could survive without the main character and rely solely on a cast of supporting characters. If you still haven't tried this title then definitely do so. It is well worth the money. Read Full Review

    I cant believe I like this comic so much. I enjoy Kirkmans other work, especially the wonderful Invincible over at Image, but I didnt think hed be capable of making me enjoy a Captain America comic. I tolerate the guys presence in The Avengers because he serves a useful purpose there, but I tend to ignore him when he speaks however, as the tripe that turns up in his speech bubbles is interminable. So it was nice to see Wasp gradually taking on Caps tactical responsibilities, suggesting that maybe the team might phase Cap out completely over time. But now Kirkmans made me like Captain America on his own merits, the audacity and unexpectedness of which is alone worth four bullets. Read Full Review

    Kirkman's plot is not just Cap and our returning female super-hero vs. Hydra. He adds twists to the story that reflect the false patriotism meant by the title as well a bonus jaw dropper that occurs at the end of the book. Now, many may cry foul, but I would not yet write off the character as a reversion to the darkside. The true villain of the piece has before brainwashed heroes. Hopefully, that wasn't enough of a hint to be a spoiler, but even you did guess the identities of our mystery guests, you should still buy this book. The beginning of this new era of Captain America is simply a blast. Read Full Review
