Where were you when Captain America died? It's the anniversary of the day Steve Rogers was killed, a day of reflection and mourning in the Marvel Universe, a time to look back on the things Steve did and what he stood for...and a look to hope in the future.

    Comix 411 - David Torres Jun 17, 2009

    I was shocked when I heard the news that Steve was coming back in "Reborn". I thought "Reborn" would be another tease that Marvel would put out in the same way we saw them do when they advertised the "Avengers/Invaders" mini-series to make it look like Steve maybe coming back. I'm pumped up about Steve's return and look forward to seeing how the story unfolds. Welcome back, Steve. Read Full Review

    I wouldn't complain at all about Marvel jacking up their prices if all of their comics had this amount of great content in them. Very nice job here Marvel, I'm definitely impressed. Read Full Review

    All in all, it's a terrific package, and well worth the extra coin, even if we have to wait for the Reborn mini-series to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Conclusion Because of Captain America # 600, Rebo Jun 21, 2009

    I think it is a fair critique to say that despite all the artists doing a yeoman's job on their given task, the overall aesthetic feel for Brubaker's main tale is jaded at best. Having Chaykin follow Guice next is like using a sponge instead of sandpaper. When I returned to the normal visual feel of Captain America at the end of the story, it felt like I was reading several other comics in between. Besides showcasing Marvel's talent, there was nothing gained by using such radical art styles on one story. In fact, this decision hurt the book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Benjamin Birdie Jun 15, 2009

    So while people may have been lured to their local comic book stores on such an odd day by the promise of a big splash page return of Steve Rogers, they will instead find an impressive examination of just what Steve Rogers and Captain America meant to Americans. The big reveals will have to wait, and there are plenty of things that need explaining, but the dozens of people involved in this issue have done a remarkable job in honoring the memory of Steve Rogers while they still have the chance.

    And if you haven’t been reading Cap or you’re one of those people who quit reading it when Steve died, now’s the time and this is the issue. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 18, 2009

    I believe that there is a perception that I don't like big event comics (not without evidence) and that I prefer DCs over Marvels (again, a case for which evidence exists) but I have to say I liked this issue. I'm not a fan of the renumbering phenomenon that Marvel has beenengaging in lately, but it at least works as lip service to a more historically respectful era of Marvel. This issue worked for me on many levels, with stellar art from many fave-raves, an advancing of the overall plot for the new Captain America, and some nice story work from other authors as well. If I have to pay $4.99 for a comic book, I at least want it to be packed with features, and this issue delivers some entertainment for your five-spot. Captain America #600 may not have lived up to it's media hype, and I may not know how I feel about the seeming resurrection hovering in the near future, but at least the book was a fun read, and a 4 out of 5 star experience overall. I expect that things are goin Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Bill Janzen Jun 23, 2009

    What wasn't effective was the manner in which this book was advertised and released. It was poorly done, and probably confused more than generated interest. Fortunately, the stories included in the issue are good, and there is more than enough here for everyone. While not great, it definitely captures the essence of what made Steve Rogers a great individual. And that is all one could ever ask of such a book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 20, 2009

    The artwork is all over the place this issue. Some is good, some is weaker, some is historical, and some self congratulatory, like the Alex Ross piece reprinted from an earlier story. The one story that was the most fun to look at was the old one from the 1940s featuring very primitive artwork. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 22, 2009

    It's a good issue, but nothing special and hardly worth the amount of attention it's received. It's greatest failing is probably due to not living up to the hype as it's still a solid outing for Brubaker and Co. Read Full Review
