    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Nov 6, 2013

    I absolutely love the direction this book has taken and have been enjoying it a great deal more since it took it. Its a great use of a little utilized villain, its got tremendous psychological potential for the main character and it uses his supporting cast expertly.Caps not the easiest character to write but Remender seems to have him down pat. The art, despite a few flaws, has a great sense of motion and impact, and in an issue like this, that counts for plenty. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 7, 2013

    Nic Klein comes onboard this issue and delivers some truly stunning pages. What we get here is more focused and clean than some of Klein's previous work. It's beautiful stuff, especially once Cap starts throwing down with Nuke. The fight, which stretches for several pages, looks glorious. There's sense of movement and grace, it never feels posed or stiff. The last panel of the issue is so menacing and dark, it's almost worth the cover price alone. Klein is on the road to superstardom, no doubt. Keep your eyes on this guy, or at least keep your eyes on his amazing artwork. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Nov 8, 2013

    No matter the era, no matter the dimension, and no matter the tone or genre, Rick Remender and his artistic partnerships can't seem to do much wrong with “Captain America” at this point. The cyclical nature of comics means that we're seeing some recycling of the common themes of Captain America, but they're approached from emotional angles that are new to the character. Remender is taking Cap through one hell of a trying journey, and while the setting and the feel of the book might be all over the place, it's hard to argue that this sort of bobbing and darting style of storytelling isn't keeping one of Marvel's oldest characters as relevant and as fresh as ever.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Nov 10, 2013

    With a great artistic direction along with some pretty neat characterization from everyone involved in this issue, this series is getting back on track as Remender might still surprise its readers. It's not perfect, but sometimes being good does the job nicely. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Nov 7, 2013

    Overall, this is a solid issue. Some of the narrative and visual mechanics feel a bit wonky, but its an enjoyable installment nonetheless. Im already looking forward to the next issue to see how all of this plays out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Mario Miranda Nov 11, 2013

    The art is fairly solid around, Carlos Pacheco does a fantastic job especially with the flashback sequence in the beginning. Dean White of course does a great job with the colors but given his reputation this is to no surprise. The only flaw seems to be that the artists following the long running Dimension Z arc seem to try and emulate, to a degree, John Romita JR's art style. Which seems to be especially true when Jet and Steve are involved, which really stands out given the darker approach in the opening flashback. Overall this issue was fairly solid but hopefully we get to see more quiet character moments with Steve and I am particularly curious with what Remender plans to do with the Jet Black.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Nov 12, 2013

    My problems with issue structuring aside, Remender's Captain America continues to be a pulpy blast of grit that, with ever issue, distances itself away from Brubaker's sleek, spy-drama epic that only strengthens it with every passing issue. Marvel NOW! has had home run after home run when it comes to its creative team shuffling, and one doesn't have to look any further than Rick Remender's Cap to find a pitch-perfect example of taking an established character into new territories of storytelling while still staying true to everything that has came before it.

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Nov 6, 2013

    If you're looking for a book with a lot of Captain America crushing in faces with his shield, this might not be the book for you. If you're looking for some great character development for both the main character and his supporting cast, then look no further. Read Full Review
