    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 22, 2008

    On the story side, things continue to move along with Red Skull and company finally getting a tad nervous about a new Captain America floating around, while Sharon Carter's disappearance compounds their problems even more. And Tony Stark? He's come a long way since Civil War. Seeing him cover for Bucky will restore a lot of people's faith in SHIELD's director. Fantastic issue. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 19, 2008

    Hard to fault a book for telling an entertaining story that may go down as one of the best runs on any single title, even if the story has slowed to a crawl. I was thinking of giving it a Check It for how slow paced the plot has been, but this issue's supervillain throw down was much more satisying than the previous Hydra henchmen and rioter "fights" on Captain Bucky's part.

    A solid issue of a reliably solid book. Brubaker seems aware of the fact that James is potentially a tough sell and is immediately addressing that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Mar 22, 2008

    Captain America #36 was another extraordinary issue. I don't know what else I can say to convince people to run out to their local comic book store and immediately purchase this title. Without a doubt, Captain America is well worth your hard earned money. If you don't have the extra cash to get this title then I urge you to rob a bank, start dealing drugs or pimp out your girlfriend/wife in order to get the extra money so you can start reading Captain America.

Yes, Captain America is that good. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Mar 18, 2008

    This issue is definitely stronger than the last issue. I didn't have the feeling of something "big" missing and I do like the way Brubaker writes Bucky's character. However, Bucky doesn't need to be Captain America to do what he does, especially since he's just going to remain covert for the time being. I'm curious as to how next issue will play out, given not only the shocking end of this issue, but the way that Bucky fluxes between acting in his own unique way and acting a little more like Steve Rogers, which for Bucky only gets him in trouble.

    "Captain America" has been good since Brubaker launched this new series, and this issue is no exception. Read Full Review
