The shocking finale of THE TRIAL OF CAPTAIN AMERICA! Did we mention nothing would ever be the same again? Because seriously, it won't.

    It's difficult to say where this series is headed in the near future. Nomad is out, Steve Rogers is coming back in a larger role, and Bucky faces a new set of challenges. For the most part, unpredictability has always served Captain America well, an hopefully that will remain so in the coming months. Read Full Review

    Not a bad issue, although it brings the current story to a sudden and very ungraceful end. As for the next arc…well, all I can say is, I winced at that final “big” moment in the last panel. Sigh. Read Full Review

    While I've grown a bit tired of the main Cap storyline in this title, I've never really been all that taken with the Nomad backup. The character hasn't seen any real growth since this feature began. Her convoluted origin and connection to a popular though creatively stunted period in Marvel's recent history make her a tough pill to swallow, and her disconnected nature - her defining quality - denies her any real coming-of-age appeal as a teenage character. This particular instalment consists of (a) a generic confrontation with drug dealers, and (b) an internal monologue that recaps her background but says nothing new about her and promises no new direction either. The art by Pepe Larraz on this backup is adequate, and it's definitely stronger and more accessible than the more exaggerated approaches we've seen in previous issues. His style actually reminded me of Ron Lim's work at several points. Read Full Review

    "Captain America" #615 is a disappointing end to "The Trial of Captain America" story arc with a courtroom scene meant to be both moving and surprising and, instead, has uncharacteristic swerves and theatrics that fall flat. While the final page provides potential for future stories, the means by which the series gets there is the first major misstep it has had in a long time. Read Full Review
