    Yet again, we're getting into another amazing story arc by Ed Brubaker. This is one of those more rare occasions where the story is strong enough for me to ignore the fact I didn't like another aspect of the book. If you're a Captain America fan, pick this book up. Non-Cap fans may have trouble jumping in since so much has changed with this character over the past 5 years. Read Full Review

    Overall, this book is once again a good issue overall, and for the most part Brubaker is really doing a fantastic job of reintroducing Helmut Zemo, and without totally forgetting who he used to be (nor who the Fixer used to be). Recommended! Read Full Review

    The issue does have a few flaws. For starters, the opening fight sequence, as insanely kinetic as it is, goes on for far too long considering it only really sets the table for far more intriguing and important scenes. More problematic is the presence of multiple inkers and colorists, greatly changing the way Guice's stellar pencils come to life from page to page. At times, the visuals have a smooth, glossed-over slickness to them; at others, they're rough and more grizzled. Still, Guice's pencils always shine no matter how they're finished, and it's fun to see him pay homage to masters like Sal Buscema and Jack Kirby. All in all, it's another great Cap issue, and – more significantly – a game changer for this latest arc. Read Full Review

    The dated feeling about this comic book must come from the new inker who turns Guices work into its weakest form. Guice is an artist that needs strong inkers. Here Magyar and Pennington gave us something that felt like I was reading a comic book drawn by Don Heck. All the mystery and mood of earlier issues in this series were replaced with quick action panels and poor inking. Read Full Review
