    Now that Remender's Captain America has moved into a new chapter, here's hoping that it gains a little expedience. The Dimension Z arc lasted a few issues too long, seemingly to cultivate the impact that some of the more trying story beats had. Still, that doesn't undersell the cathartic nature of Captain America #10, and may have actually better served the profound nature of this issue's epilogue, which is sure to make many readers await a return to Dimension Z. For now, I'm anxious to see how Cap deals with the ramifications of this story now that he's home. Read Full Review

    Captain America #10 completes a story arc filled with suffering, ups and downs, and loss. It's likely Captain America will rise to the challenge and fight through his emotional turmoil, and that could be a story in itself. Will Steve try to return to Dimension Z? Will Ian make it to Earth? What will Princess Jet Black do as a commoner? It's a compliment to the creative team that these questions exist, and it's a bigger credit to the team knowing readers will want to find out the answers. Read Full Review

    Remender gives this arc an ending that could lead to some truly exciting things and it's something to definitely look forward to. Read Full Review

    Not a perfect issue by any means, but one that functions as a bold and satisfying conclusion to an arc that lives up to its promises. Read Full Review

    Rick Remender has done some crazy things to Captain America in these last ten issues, and that's a good thing. We've had the chance to see Cap in a different way and we got a pretty heavy ending that's bound to have a deep affect on the character. It's nice to see Marvel allow the chance for Remender to try something different rather than have him tell more of the same Cap stories we've seen. There should definitely be repercussions after this. After everything Cap went through, I feel like I need to recuperate as well. Remender shows us it is possible to tell a different sort of Captain America story. After this, it'll be interesting to see what Remender has planned next. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Aug 28, 2013

    John Romita does some great work in this issue, although credit has to be given to Klaus Janson, Tom Palmer, and Scott Hanna for providing the finishes. The end result is a little all over the place, with some pages filled with fine detail and others more loose and smooth. Fortunately, Dean White and Rachelle Rosenberg color Captain America #10 to perfection. Their masterful color art holds the whole thing together and helps bring the horrors of Dimension Z to a stunning close. Great issue in what looks to be a Cap run to remember. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Aug 28, 2013

    Remender puts forth a brilliantly ironic notion that begs to be explored in future issues: that of a Captain America, famous for spending fifty years in ageless hibernation, has now aged ten years in a seeming instant in Earth time. Hopefully, this will be explored, and immediately; readers who might not have cared for or tired of this arc are left with a fascinating premise that should keep them around. Regardless, this issue both nicely caps off the previous storyline and sets up what's next. Whatever one's opinion of "Dimension Z", this is a good issue to check out. Read Full Review

    As I've constantly said since the start of this run, Captain America is my favorite superhero. Though I wasn't exactly in his corner during the Dimension Z debacle, I'm hopeful for what's to come next. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 29, 2013

    If there's perhaps an aspect of the art that is still good-looking, it's the colorization by Dean White, with help from Rachelle Rosenberg this issue. A lot of the colours here are rather one-note, yet there are at least degradation to allow for the illusion of movement in the scenes featuring the vehicles. The strange landscapes are still illustrated with contrasting colors, bringing in grey, red, green and other garish colors to maintain the weirdness. If there's perhaps a sequence of pages that are really great in terms of colors, it would be the final pages once more, as they are truly striking even with the colorization. While there are some interesting developments, some really striking final pages and some scenes that do work, the general pacing and the art by John Romita Jr. and his army of inkers is a poor example of the kind of talent those in the creative team can truly show. Not the best closing issue. Read Full Review

    Captain America leaves Dimension Z with an awful lot of baggage. This is going to give Remender plenty to play with in the coming arcs. While the issue is a science fiction delight the overall story felt too much like an 'alternate worlds' kind of book. The danger seemed too fictional (even for the characters) making the read feel in a way ordinary. I recommend picking up this issue and the entire run if you really like some Captain America/science fiction stories. I enjoyed this and I can't wait to see where Remender takes Cap from here.

    Captain America should be a great series. I usually love Remender and I always love Romita Jr. Sadly, this time their contribution to an icon's history is a complete bust. Read Full Review

    Hopefully the next storyline will feature the decisive, heroic Cap that fans have flocked to see - not this violent, grim and gritty substitute. Read Full Review
