    Amazing issue and one of the strongest for Captain America in months. It looks like this arc will end with a bang next month, but this issue definitely put the ultimate in penultimate. Read Full Review

    One last note before I leave (and I hate to end on such a sour note, but deal with it…): Is anyone else completely taken out of this story (albeit temporarily) whenever Brubaker reminds us that Falcon has the ability to communicate with his bird? Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 7, 2008

    It's a good ending, a good scene, and really the first point where I believe that Bucky is mentally up to the task that has fallen to him. This issue is taut, and suspenseful, and I was amazed how easily Brubaker made me feel for Doctor Faustus, even like him, just a little bit, while maintaining his manipulative aura. It's a well-done bit, and his "gift" to Sharon, shows that the fat man has a surprising level of compassion. Steve Epting is back on art, and it shows, as this issue was very well done, from the clear distrust on the face of Sharon Carter while speaking with the Doc, to the obviously exhausted Lukin, to some spectacular action sequences. Thankfully, we don't have a chance to focus on the loss of Steve and Sharon's baby (another annoying example of endangering a child to up the stakes) for long, but I'm still wondering what evil doings the Skull is up to with his final endgame. It's a pretty awesome issue, not perfect, but very well done, and earns a mighty fine Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Aug 19, 2008

    Yet again, Brubaker and Epting deliver a solid issue in their epic story. While this issue does offer a few new twists and offers some new plot points, it stays true to the overall story and keeps me wanting more. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Aug 26, 2008

    Captain America #41 was a fantastic read. Brubaker cranks up the intensity as we barrel along to the dramatic finish to this story. This title is always such an impressive blend of well crafted plotlines, dialogue, character work and action. Captain America still remains one of Marvel's best titles currently on the market.

    "Captain America" is Marvel's best ongoing series right now, and for all the attention on the "Death of Captain America," it's been the life after the Death that has been the real treat to read. Read Full Review
