    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Feb 28, 2008

    I know I sound like an old record, but Ed Brubaker has done it again: Captain America #35 is enthralling, intense, and politically charged. Seeing Bucky kicking butt as Captain America is so much fun, too. I actually caught myself smiling when he took out a bunch of guys with his shield throwing. Butch Guice does an excellent job filling in. In fact, I didn't even know he was on art chores until I read the credits. This book is phenomenal. Read Full Review

    If this issue has a flaw, it's the slightly weak ending. This isn't the first time in recent months Brubaker has relied on a slightly forced ending to cap off an issue. I sympathize that ending issue after issue on a satisfying cliffhanger is one of the more difficult aspects of writing comics. However, when a series is as good as this, lone flaws stand out all the more. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 28, 2008

    I imagine this will all matter next issue or a couple issues time when these security forces probably execute a coup and the Red Skull takes over, but for this single issue? It's filler for the most part. Highly enjoyable filler, but filler none the less. Read Full Review

    As far as the art goes, I honestly had no idea this issue was handled by a fill-in artist until I read Jesse's review, which should tell you all you need to know about either Butch Guice's ability to replicate Epting's style or my general stupidity. Take your pick. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Keith Dallas Feb 26, 2008

    So when does Bucky as Cap make his debut in every other book in the Marvel Universe? Or will he even leave this title? That is a big question considering the two major forthcoming events that will no doubt involve Captain America. Will Bucky have a role in Secret Invasion? Will Bucky still be around for the Alex Ross story The Return? A lot of questions are popping up as the big factor of this story in terms of the entire Marvel Universe is seemingly nonexistent. I do love the covert feel of Bucky as Cap, but Cap, whoever is under the mask, also needs to be a big part of the universe. Regardless of that fact, this storyline continues to keep me excited. Brubaker has kept me hooked for damn near three years, and I honestly cant wait to see what happens next, especially with Sharon Carter someone found out shes pregnant! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Mar 3, 2008

    Captain America #35 was another excellent read. It is simply incredible how consistently good Brubaker is on this title. If you still haven't given this title a try then I recommend that you do so. You really don't have to be a Captain America fan to enjoy this incredible story. And unlike many slower moving stories that feel like two issue story arcs stretched out over six issues, Brubaker manages to cram plenty of detail and plot development in each issue. If you don't mind a story that moves at a restrained pace then I think you will dig Brubaker's Captain America. Read Full Review

    Butch Guice is doing some of his best work in years here and I like how his Captain America is stepped in that real gritty political thriller world. Thanks to colourist Frank DArmata, the transition from Guice and previous artist Steve Epting is smooth and it still feel like were reading the same series. Read Full Review
