    Make no mistake about it, this new Captain America series is quite the trip. It's definitely a departure from Brubaker's normal gritty, espionage-focused Cap stories, but that's also a welcomed change-up as far as I'm concerned. This series' reliance on big sci-fi concepts makes it all the more interesting, because you never know where it's going to go next. And I'm ready for what comes next. Read Full Review

    McNiven is good here. The illustration and storytelling are fine, but I still feel like his work is like a bunch of photographs. So even though he can move through the story visually and make it clear for readers to know whats happening, it feels stilted. Its really difficult to understand whats off. Check out the picture of the Falcon flying on page four. He just stands there in the sky on top of a city as if he had been stuck there. Its hard to feel that hes in the air floating. Well, much of the comic book has this feel. So gorgeous art work and decent storytelling, but it feels stiff, monotone and non-moving. There is no kinetic energy to the drawings. Read Full Review

    What I like most about this book is that it was balanced amazingly. We got a lot of exposition from Steve in the dream world, and a greater explanation of the motivations of the arc's bad guys. I found Steve asking the same questions I had: this is a good thing, because it means the writers have planned for the audience's curiosity. Read Full Review
