    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Dec 21, 2012

    The A book full of great action, art and characterization… It is very surprising to see Steve Rogers look this cool and bad-ass with a beard. I guess most male characters looks intimidating with facial hair. I cannot wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    This was a brilliant issue, and I'm really looking forward to how it progresses. I would highly recommend this issue to anyone, and if you're not a fan of JRJR's art Id' still recommend as the story itself is defferent, as well as being very good, and very interesting. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Dec 19, 2012

    Captain America is a solid adventure book. Remender and Romita Jr. have stripped away all the calling cards of the previous run and left us with a science fiction story that feels like it was ripped straight out of the 70s. Plus, major bonus points to Remender for a well-placed Ernest Hemingway reference. You know the way to this reviewer's heart, good sir. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Dec 21, 2012

    Though it's strange that Marvel's direction for the new Captain America series is to place him in a world without America, there is something about Captain America's ideals and personality that become more exposed through his hard work and diligence. The world Zola rules is bleak and barren. A perfect canvas for the colors to bleed through. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 19, 2012

    This isn't the Captain America series you were expecting. Rick Remender has taken the reigns and is taking us on a completely tripped out and wacky adventure. We've been seeing so many stories of Cap as a soldier working for the government. While the Brubaker stories full of thrills and espionage were great, Remender is clearly doing his own thing. He's showing it's not necessary to try to replicate what happened before and is delivering stories on his own terms. This means we're getting Cap stories we didn't think was possible or may have forgotten were possible Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Dec 22, 2012

    Other dimensions are always an opportunity to get pretty wild. So far it’s all been pretty subtle, but this particular team is showing great potential and that’s the great intricacy of it all, still feeling real and relatable while other worldly. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Dec 24, 2012

    When you add a terrific (and potentially gruesome) cliffhanger ending to the whole thing, well, this turns into a darn good comic. It's interesting that the Marvel NOW! initiative is so intent on just letting the creators tell the stories they want to tell, rather than worrying about how all of their books fit together. It would be impossible to reconcile the timeline of this book with, for example, Hickman's Avengers. But that's why this is so good! When you've got talent like this, it's best to just turn 'em loose! Read Full Review

    Rick Remender is boldly moving Captain America into some uncharted territory. While Romita Jr.s art could be better, this is a great Cap story that is worth reading. Read Full Review

    I would highly suggest picking this book up even if you are not a Cap fan. It is NOT a traditional Cap book, and I think many people will be surprised by just how good it actually is. Plus Cap has a beard and long hair, which in my books makes this series pretty awesome. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Dec 19, 2012

    It's difficult to say how Rick Remender's run with Captain America will pan out. With most other 'Marvel NOW!' titles, I've found myself either raucously sold or defiantly opposed. Remender's Captain America is different from most other titles Marvel is currently offering: it sits outside the general Marvel turn of events due to it's setting in Dimension Z, Captain America is completely out of his element (something we haven't seen in ages), yet the fate of a whole universe hangs in the balance.

    This by no means a must read but if you like Captain America, or even just a fan of Romitas artwork,I'mconfident you find something to like here. Its a good book, just not a great one. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Dec 21, 2012

    "Captain America" #2 is a brave departure into new pulpy waters. This doesn't feel like a "Captain America" book anymore. This will brighten the days of some fans but others could be driven away. Readers must choose for themselves if they are willing to follow this character into this bold new genre. Cap is pushed to do new things but ultimately it is his character that still shines through in his decisions and actions. This is the start of an action filled run where anything can happen and I know I'm on board. Read Full Review

    Captain America is the failure to communicate. The failure is how Rick Remender has chosen to communicate his desire to step outside the Ed Brubaker shadow. Read Full Review
