    Changing the artist probably made me like this comic book even more. Aruna has a great reputation for drawing characters in a way that makes them look like theyre from a political thriller. With the old Marvel Comics look of past issues, Im glad we have something more solid to concentrate on. Aruna particularly reveals the distinct traits of every character he draws. I like how skinny his Tony Stark is, compared with Steve Rogers. Read Full Review

    What's not to like here? I mean come on, it's Captain America and it's written by Ed Brubaker. Seriously. This was a great set-up story for the upcoming "Trail of Captain America" storyline, which should really put Bucky through the wringer. I'm sure this will be a fantastic storyline, all I'm hoping is that it doesn't end with Bucky giving up the uniform of Captain America... Read Full Review

    "The Trial of Captain America" is off to a fine start. What I most anticipate is that I don't know what's next. Everything I knew about this storyline was laid out here. That horizon is looking mighty fascinating right about now - I can't wait to see what Ed Brubaker has in store. Read Full Review

    A very good start to "The Trial of Captain America," one that has me more excited for the next issue of Cap than I have been since Steve passed his shield on. Well written, and tense without resorting to melodrama. THIS is the Cap (and the Brubaker!) I want to read. Read Full Review

    "Captain America" #611 finally deals with issues that the book has danced around since Barnes returned as the Winter Soldier and, then, took up the mantle of Captain America. No easy answers are given, but the contrast of how problems like this are usually handled with how Barnes is treated here is very interesting. Despite this story being a longtime coming, nothing about this issue felt predictable or obvious. A great start to this story! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 1, 2010

    Captain America #611 is a complex issue, using the main character sparingly, but making it all about him in the long run, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. I sincerely hope that this doesnt end with Steve simply picking up his shield again Thats far too easy, and a cheap copout move to boot. Read Full Review

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Nomad backup feature when it first debuted in this title. the story of a girl without a world trying to find her place in a new one made for interesting storytelling. Unfortunately, that focus isn't really to be found in this generic, unexplained teamup story. Rikki's inferiority complex in the Black Widow's shadow is understandable but quickly gets old. I also didn't care for Filipe Andrade's work for this story. One of the key elements in a Nomad story is an emphasis on her youth, and one doesn't get a sense of the character's tender age from the visuals here. The Humberto Ramos influence is apparent, but the lacking backgrounds and spastic action just didn't do anything for me. Read Full Review
