    Ah... So THAT'S why Baron Zemo visited Sin in her cell all those issues back! To tell her Bucky was Captain America and to lie in her psych tapes that she had always known that Bucky was a sleeper agent of the Red Skull's... Ed Brubaker, you are a GENIUS! This comic was absolutely perfect. Literally perfect. I can't think of a single thing that seemed wrong, or that I didn't like(and believe me, I tried!). Bucky's parts were small, but powerful, Steve trying to do everything in his power to help Bucky out was great, I STILL love seeing Bernie again, and Sin's parts in this were perfect. Her dream was especially wonderful, as in two pages, Brubaker basically laid out every stitch of motivation Sin has ever had in her life; to prove to her father that she was better than any son the Red Skull could have had. Having just given out a perfect score earlier this week, I really didn't want to give out another one, but if this isn't a perfect comic, I don't know what is! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Soldier Hawk Dec 30, 2010

    One of the best Cap issues I've read in some time. I'm a little confused that there's only one more issue left in the arcit's part three of four and we only just started the trial!but as long as they keep on this course and don't try to either wrap things up too quickly, or pull a deus ex machina just to get Bucky out of things with his honor still intact, I'll count this as the best Bucky-Cap arc to date.

    Captain America #613 Review January 2, 2011 Marvel Blog, Marvel Comics Reviews 0 comments Tweet Captain America #613Ed Brubaker's finely paced storytelling and tension building techniques continue in part 3 of "The Trial of Captain America." It's been said that every picture tells a story, and I swear that's true with Brubaker's panels. It would take a whole page of writing to tell what Brubaker can do in one panel. I've praised this before, and I so so again for good reason. His pacing and storytelling are the things that make this my favorite Marvel book right now.Red Skull's daughter continues to turn the screws in Bucky's psyche the same way that Baron Zemo did, from a distance, and using psychological tactics. I'm sure the physical encounter will occur at the end of the story arc in much the same way that Zemo did in the previous arc. In fact, I'm wondering if there's a formula that Brubaker is working when it comes to these vi Read Full Review

    I was beginning to think that this title may be in danger of losing its focus but that fear seems to have given way to a newfound sense of excitement as the creators have really put forth a strong effort in The Trial of Captain America. Great writing by Ed Brubaker and absolutely stunning artwork by Butch Guice have Captain America once again firing on all cylinders! Read Full Review

    I thought the handling of the Winter Soldier's past being disclosed to the public was pretty shoddy (not to mention rushed), now we'll get to see if Brubaker can pull things back and give us the first big super-hero trial we've had in years. Read Full Review
