It's the grand finale - the showdown between Zemo and Bucky Barnes, and even if Bucky can survive a second trip to Zemo's island his world will never be the same after what Helmut Zemo has done to it. Plus a NOMAD back-up by Sean McKeever & Filipe Andrade Rated T …$3.99

    A very good ending to a better than average BuckyCap arc. I do wish they'd move the focus from the Bucky back to the Cap part, however; that's why I buy a book called Captain America and not one called Bucky Barnes Deals With Issues. Read Full Review

    Oh, and this comic's backup feature was very weak. How about turning that space over to the Falcon or Bucky? (I'm just teeming with helpful suggestions today.) Read Full Review

    Still, perhaps this was intentional " or perhaps there's a rematch coming. Despite the downbeat ending, this arc in Captain America has been one of the most enjoyable for some time, and for all the finer details of Zemo's appearance, a large part of that has been in the character's reintroduction. I wouldn't be upset to see more of him from Brubaker in the future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 4, 2010

    Captain America #610 did a good job ending No Escape and setting up the next arc for this title, The Trial of Captain America. Though I had my problems with how Brubaker portrayed Zemo, Brubaker still continues to do a great job showing the depth of Buckys character that makes him so interesting. With Guice's great artwork it looks like Brubaker is bringing Captain America back to form. I am looking forward to the next arc as it has a lot of potential to be one of the best arcs on this title.

    Sean McKeever and Filipe Andrade's Nomad back-up serial, "Welcome Home," also concludes this issue. And while I appreciate Marvel's attempt to provide additional value to compensate for the book's $3.99 cover price, my disinterest in the lead character makes it difficult to feel like I'm getting extra bang for my buck. I'd much prefer the book lose its back-up and return to its $2.99 price tag, yet I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen. Read Full Review

    I'd be remiss not to mention that the Nomad back-up feature's actually pretty good. It's a low-key story about Cap and Rikki going bowling, but I was actually pretty impressed by how much you could relate to the human emotion McKeever spins on such an outlandish, complicated, reality-bending situation. It reminded me of a good Astro City story. Overall, I do recommend this book - - even though Zemo seem different enough from how he's usually been depicted that he took me out of the experience a little. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 2, 2010

    While I personally can't stand the reverting of Zemo to generic nazi badguy with daddy issues, the story is otherwise fairly solid with your standard hero confronting and overcoming his personal demons plot. Art is good and fits the tone of the story, too. Read Full Review
