    Captain America #20 is another solid issue of Rick Remender's deconstruction of Steve Rogers. Rick's original take on the character is human and ever fascinating. This arc is building to a nice crescendo and it's hard to pass up Nic Klein and Dean White art. Read Full Review

    Remender’s run on Captain America seems destined to be remembered, or should I say “Remendered”? (I’ll see myself out.) Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick May 15, 2014

    The issue is a nice mash-up of the different styles of Remender himself, too. There's the solid action and skill with putting his protagonists through personal hells that he showed in X-Force. There's also some of his nutty sic-fi and sociopolitical commentary that you find in something like Black Science. The result is old school super-hero bonkers action with a modern twist. That's not for everybody, but this reader finds himself enjoying the ride. If there's a downfall to a more classical approach, it's predictability, but this issue mostly dodges that bullet. The final page shows where this story is going to go, and while I think it's maybe a little too silly, it also brings into the story a threat that is maybe one of the top four or five classic comic book threats. I laughed when I saw it, but the laughter for me was not without warmth. I look forward to see how this all going to turn out. Read Full Review

    While Remender started out his run by reaching for the stars, it seems now that he's slowly inching his way back down to Earth, the weight of his portentous and heavy-handed dialogue dragging him and his run down. Read Full Review
