    While I wouldn't say reading Remender's Winter Soldier series is required to appreciate Captain America #19, or this arc in general, I do want to go back and re-analyze that first issue again now that I'm paying full attention to what will probably foreshadow Ran Shen's disillusionment with and eventual fall from grace from S.H.I.E.L.D. Still, this issue is a solid entry in the current storyline, which is rapidly starting to heat up. Read Full Review

    On the whole, Im eager to see the resolution of the arc. Though I can clearly see how that resolutions going to go, Im enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    All said Captain America #19 is a fun issue. Its not among Remenders best, lacking the emotional impact that it needs to really make it a stellar comic, but its still a very entertaining one and better than plenty of other comics on stands right now. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Apr 2, 2014

    Nic Klein does some awesome work here. He excels at action scenes and Remender gives him plenty. The end fight between Cap and the Iron Nail is by fair the best bit of the issue. For the rest of the book, chaos is the name of the game, and it has varying levels of success. We never really get a sense of the size and scariness of this new helicarrier. It never seems all that menacing, which sucks the intensity out of the opening pages. That said, it looks real awesome when everything starts blowing up, so that helps pad out those confusing moments. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Apr 3, 2014

    Last issue was an out and out fight comic. This one leans more toward exposition but is balanced with plenty of explosions. Remender returns to the theme of his run, "You always stand up" and it's clear that he's not done putting Steve through the wringer. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 4, 2014

    "Captain America" #19 is a solid action-packed story. It brings some contrivances, such as Cap ditching his helmet in a manner that plays into his opponents' hands. Klein and White combine for strong imagery, even if some of the storytelling could be given a little more room to breathe. This isn't the most memorable issue of Remender's run, but it is another solid addition to his catalog of adventures featuring Steve Rogers and company. Read Full Review
