    IGN - Dan Phillips Jun 30, 2010

    Mitch Breitweiser steps in to handle the pencils this issue, and although his style is grittier and looser than that of Steve Epting, Luke Ross or Butch Guise, it still manages to feel at home next to the work of the series' usual team of rotating artists. There's a dynamic energy at the heart of Breitweiser's storytelling, and thanks to colorists Dean White and Elizabeth Dismang, there's also a rich atmosphere to every panel. So yes – Captain America remains as expertly crafted, entertaining and impressive as ever. Oh, and the Nomad-centric back-up tale from Sean McKeever and David Baldeon still isn't doing a damn thing to justify the book's price hike. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Travis Walecka Jul 2, 2010

    With the addition of the Super Soldier and old school villains like Zemo who have such huge ties to the current Captain America, I see this title becoming one of the great runs in Marvels history--if it hasnt already. Now, can we just get rid of this exasperating Nomad back-up, please? Read Full Review

    The plot thickens in what looks to be the best Bucky-Cap storyline yet. Let's hope Brubaker and company can keep up this level of work and the pace they've set. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jul 5, 2010

    Regrettably, the comic is slightly tainted by McKeever and Baldeon's Nomad backup, which although a fitting complement in the early days, has veered away from the tone and subject matter of the title into less interesting territory. Nomad's position on the fringes of the Captain America universe is increasingly tenuous, and unless Brubaker intends to bring her into the fold more convincingly, it's hard to see why this backup continues to run, particularly with the launch of "Young Allies." Not that I want to complain too much about having a higher page count for $3.99, but to be honest, it'd be nice if the backup counted a little more than this. Read Full Review

    Bucky and the Black Widow are searching for the girl who slipped some drugs into his drink a few days priors and caused him to hallucinate and attack several cops at the hospital where his partner the Falcon was treated. But Baron Zemo is prepared to take out the new Captain America. Will he succeed? This issue is much more interesting than the previous one and the Captain, thanks to the Black Widow has to use his brains for once. I like that he has a good back up with Steve Rogers and the Black Widow to keep him out of trouble. Although we know who is the bad guy and part of their motivations, its still interesting to follow the trail of deception with Captain America. The artwork is as solid and consistent as in previous issues with the established look for the series maintained by the forceful inks by Guice. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Adam Chapman Jul 1, 2010

    All told, Captain America feels like it's really getting its act together after a few issues that really did FEEL like filler, and I'm interested in seeing what Brubaker has in store for both Zemo and for Bucky. I'm not entirely sure who IS the new regular artist for this title, but hopefully it brings back the sense of stability that this series normally has in the artwork department. Recommended.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 2, 2010

    Overall, its interesting to see into Buckys head, and nice to have Steve Rogers as a supporting character in this title, but the effect of this issue is more of a Hmm, this could get good rather than a Wow, this is AWESOME! kind of experience. There might be some fallout effects from the Heroic Age going on, but the Cold War espionage of this title feels somehow out of sorts with the rest of the Marvel Universe, and I think this is affecting my overall enjoyment of the book.
