    It's a rare book that fires on all cylinders: plot, theme, pacing, words, pencils, inks and color; but this one is firing on all of them. This is a solid team on a solid title. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Alan Davis' art is a major part of the reason for the classic, old-school feel of the arc. But in this case, "old-school" is anything but a derogatory term. Davis is still a master draftsman and storyteller, qualities that far outweigh little niggling concerns like the dated hairstyles some characters sport. If nothing else, Captain America Vol. 6 has been a pretty book from the start. Read Full Review

    Not feeling Davis' cover art and it primarily seems to be composition more than style but still feels a step up from McNiven's take. Read Full Review

    I feel like I missed a page (or three) as Sharon comes to the conclusion of what villain is behind Cap's regression back to Skinny Steve Rogers. It's possible Cobra let this slip off-panel in Sharon's interrogation but I just don't see him knowing that much of the operation. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    This book was really hard to review, as I usually love Brubaker's work. However, the art was just not up to par, and it really made the narrative suffer. I couldn't help but think over and over at how 90's this title looked, from Cap to Falcon to Sharon to everyone; that isn't a good thing, ladies and gentlemen. Read Full Review
