    How the creative team will top this remains to be seen, and with the bar set so high, one wonders how well the story will end. Besides having to overcome huge expectations, there's no reason to believe the creative team won't deliver, and next issue looks like Captain America will fight a tougher battle from a mental and emotional standpoint.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Apr 17, 2013

    The absolute best part of this issue is the coloring art by Dean White. Right from page one, it's clear he's bringing more than his fair share to this book.The muted darkness of Zola's Dimension Z is punctuated by the red, white, and blue of Cap's tattered costume and the bright green splatter of mutant blood. It's hard to imagine this comic looking as good as it does without White's masterful touch. Captain America #6 is a comic where the creative team just nails it. Read Full Review

    Damn is this comic good... Seriously, it's fantastic! This issue was no different. I couldn't wait to turn each page, hoping that Cap would manage to reach Ian before Zola's brainwashing took effect. Besides the story here, the characters are SO well thought out! Read Full Review

    Cap has stormed Zolandia by himself in an attempt to rescue Ian and put down Arnim Zola once and for all. Much of this issue is framed to show Caps relentlessness. Remender also cleverly exposes Caps flaws through exposition and creative character dialogue, sometimes not even Caps. Dimension Z has peeled away Caps brave exterior and given the reader a closer look at his ideals. His ideals are what make him a great man but are they also his flaw? Do they make him weak? Sometimes his principles can even make him a jerk. Its these philosophical dilemmas that make Remenders run so darn intriguing. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 22, 2013

    With its sci-fi vibe, the strength of its concepts, its script and its character, this title keeps on convincing us that this new domain is a good fit for Steve Rogers. All it would need is a little more consistency with the whole art team, and this title would become an absolute must-read. Read Full Review

    Captain America, the title, has some challenges. The long story that Remender is telling requires a leap of faith because the book appears to be out of continuity. However, his character work can't be denied and that has helped to make the comic enjoyable. This particular issue is one of those pay off issues where the drama comes to a head. This is a good comic book. Read Full Review

    Captain America #6 is a strong issue driving the series to the conclusion of it's first arc. I look forward to seeing how this all wraps up, and what the lasting effects of Cap's actions will be going forward. I was hesitant about this creative pairing when the Marvel NOW! shuffle was announced, but I am all in now. Read Full Review

    The changes Zola makes to Ian, the child whom Steve intends to save from Dimension Z, make for an interesting dynamic in future issues, but this kind of darkness is difficult to engage with. If the story could focus less on breadth and more on depth, I'd be more inclined to keep reading because I want to see Steve succeed " but not at the price of his soul, or what he's come to stand for in a world of ever increasing violence, sadness and terror.

    Reviewing one of the new Cap books is difficult because the story is so unusual. Perhaps that works to the benefit of the reader in a sense, as this sense of subtle unease brings you into the horror of Rogers' current situation and keeps you emotionally invested in what would otherwise be a somewhat off-putting scenario.

    This may be the most risky and unique Captain America story of all time, and really, that’s the only way Remender could follow up Brubaker’s run. The relationship between Steve and Ian is perfectly written and the suspense when Steve was trying to save Ian from Zola’s brainwashing was incredible. Remender’s Long-term storytelling is at its best

    This story is very unusual and my interest has gone up and down over the arc. This issue was one of the strongest so far with some great emotional scenes. My one complaint is that the art is very uneven, particulary towards the end where one characters face seems extremely bloated.
