    Captain America went through a horrific time in Dimension Z. While other writers might have the hero suddenly bounce back from tragedy, Rick Remender shows us the pain Cap is going through. There is also more to the build up with Nuke and we can only imagine how his story will collide with Cap. Carlos Pacheco's art is a welcomed sight and it just keeps getting better and better. There's no telling what Remender has planned for Cap next and that is what makes reading this series so fun and exciting. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is another strong issue in an otherwise interesting storyline. Despite the usual pitfalls, this arc is coming along nicely. Remender seems to be gearing up to something much bigger with his peculiar choice in antagonists, and Pacheco continues to please. Solid stuff all around with this one. Read Full Review

    "Captain America" #12 provides an extraordinary amount of setup, but these are simply towers of blocks, waiting for someone to knock them down. Remender is both the architect and destroyer of these towers, but the building blocks are simply mesmerizing. I'm enjoying Pacheco's collaboration with Remender on this series and can't help but hope they stick together for a while. This issue has moved "Captain America" prominently back onto my reading list while giving readers a great psychoanalysis of the first Avenger. Cap's in a delicate place right now -- not unlike those previous predicaments where some of his most memorable stories have grown from. Read Full Review

    Story problems aside, Captain America #12 looks really damn good. Carlos Pacheco and Klaus Janson just click and provide page after page of glorious artwork. The only part of this book that doesn't look great is the aforementioned Cap and Falcon scene. The emotional expressions on the characters' faces is way overdone. It makes an already silly scene even sillier. That said, the rest of the issue is amazing. Nuke's reign of violence is a beautiful dance of destruction. I can't wait to see him with clash with Captain America; you just know it's gonna be great. Read Full Review

    Captain America #12suffers from feeling a bit too uneven. The scenes, what few there are, with Captain America himself are wonderful and sad and great. The scenes with Nuke are the polar opposite. They are boring to read and are way too focused on monologuing why the villain thinks the way he does. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, some of the problems with Captain America #12 are considered necessary evils, as Remender has to build up the villains he needs to challenge our war-torn hero. That said, it feels like a lot of this ground could have been covered last issue, and the lack of connection between Steve and his enemies makes this book feel a little less weighty than it should be. With some slightly underwhelming art and some unwieldy structure, Captain America needs to get back into the trenches and fight some supervillains, stat. Read Full Review
