    Remender continues to deliver the best Cap monologues in recent history, and gives Cap the voice he deserves as he constructs an interesting story with with topical, moral discussions. In addition, Pancheco just kills it in the art department. Pick this up! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 16, 2013

    This book has been clawing its way upward in my reading stack and "Captain America" #14 makes another lunge up the pile. Remender has found threads to tug on and is beginning the process of unraveling pieces of Captain America's life yet again. The developments in this issue ensure that there is nothing resembling smooth sailing ahead for the sentinel of liberty. "Captain America" #14 is a statement issue encapsulating the vibe and spirit of Remender's run to date, but makes it quite clear that nothing is sacred or off-limits. This is leading to a fight Cap isn't ready to fight and how he handles that will define Captain America for the All-New Marvel NOW! era. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Dec 11, 2013

    Captain America #14 is another great issue in Remender's run. The payoffs due to past issues are great and the stage is set wonderfully for a showdown between Cap and The Iron Nail in issue #15. It's a great time to be a fan of the Captain. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Dec 11, 2013

    The work of Dean White is also very good here, with a good lot of shading in order to work with several elements of the background, like the fire burning behind the characters. With a balance between the shiny elements like Captain America's shield and the dirty aspects of the background and the violence of the issue, White is able to show the contrast in terms of themes as well as one the panels. The colorful characters are instantly more recognizable and more easily focused-on when put before a snowy background, or against trees and other simple elements. It's a mix between simple and complex techniques that makes this issue stand out in terms of colors. Some elements still come as a bit under-developed and trite, but the action, inclusion of several plot points as well as the work of Carlos Pacheco, Dean White and Mariano Taibo manage to makes this read very much worthwhile. An improvement overall. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Ryan Lagerstrom Dec 19, 2013

    All in all, Captain America #14 offers some interesting ideas and a fun, issue-long action scene, but not much more than that. The preachiness and shallow exploration of ideas prevent it from being anything more than run-of-the-mill superhero action. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed Dec 12, 2013

    Despite its solid production value, this storyline is lackluster at best, and problematic at worst. Overall this issue is disappointing, feeling like a giant leap backwards for the title rather than a step toward future continuity. Perhaps in coming issues Remender can find a way to salvage this plot, but I sincerely doubt it at this point. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Dec 16, 2013

    The final showdown with The Iron Nail is still to come but the stakes surrounding their confrontation aren't nearly as high as they should be. Remender has a lot of things falling into place and anyone would be a fool to believe he won't surprise us with the conclusion of this arc. However, this issue doesn't stand up. While the visuals do line up well with the message, it fails to provide more context for The Iron Nail's involvement and Nuke never seems like a credible threat. The added nuance of Captain America's public persona coming under fire is an interesting caveat but not necessarily a new one. We'll have to wait and see how this one shakes out. Read Full Review
