    There is a perfect balance of narrative and action, both directly linked and Brubaker pretty much gives readers a clinic in excellent storytelling. Once again, Brubaker hits a grand slam in one issue, telling a story full of weight, history, action and emotion. This title simply is Marvel's top book, and Brubaker just billows with steam as he adds more and more coal to the fire with every issue. Read Full Review

    Last issue was a little slow for my taste, but Ed Brubaker is back in his usual great form again. I know I'll be eagerly looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    If you've been following Captain America regularly, you know the deal. It's consistently top tier, and issue #46 once again proves why. James is, in many ways, a character with more story opportunities than Steve Rogers had, and Brubaker is already doing wonders with him. You'd be hard-pressed to find better superheroics out there.

    Captain America continues to be one of Marvel's strongest comics. As I feared, I'm almost to the point where I like Bucky as Cap almost as much as I like Steve Rogers as Cap. Read Full Review

    The highlight of this issue, is of course the artworkwhich gives Namor unique features, although his head is not as triangular as inother comic books. Dont let the cover fool you, Captain America does not fightNamor. However, its interesting to see Namor rendered in a crime noir series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 9, 2009

    As always, Ed Brubaker delivers a gripping tale, without any of the strangeness that last issue left me with. Seeing Namor in action is always nice (when he doesn't look like a drunken porn star, mind you) and the nods to the years of camradery between the former Invaders is very well done. Subby doesn't consider the fact that Bucky was a kid when they fought together to make him any less of a warrior, nor any less worthy of his word, which is a nice touch. I'm still wondering what in the hell is going on with Zhang Chin, as well as what plans are ahead for Jim Hammond (though I hope to see him returning to action, as I've always been a fan.) Overall, this is a nicely done issue, with the usual excellence from Steve Epting, and great moments for several Marvel characters. Captain America has been excellent for several years now, and this issue is one that upholds that honor. Captain America #46 earns 4 out of 5 stars, leaving me impressed with both the quality of the book Read Full Review
