    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Nov 7, 2017

    Captain America #695 enters the realm of books that I would give to individuals to explain what I love about the character, and why he is important in the world of comics and fiction in general. This was one of the best Captain America comics I have read since the glory days of Ed Brubakers run with the character. If anything the biggest mistake Marvel made was not leading Legacy off with this book. It serves as the best testament to what Marvel once was and what it can be again. Read Full Review

    Simply put, if Secret Empire had shaken your faith in Captain America as a concept or Steve Rogers as a character, you MUST read this issue. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Don Alsafi Nov 3, 2017

    Captain America #695 is a comic that's not afraid to be about something " and that's a good thing. It's been rumored that the creators might only be around for a half-dozen issues before a new creative team takes over with issue #700, but hopefully that's just unfounded hearsay. This first issue of Cap's brand-new era is nothing short of masterful, and the idea of this creative team being on for the long haul is a joyous thought indeed. Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are the dream team for Captain America, and what they provide us in Cap's first post-Legacy issue is a vision to behold. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 1, 2017

    Whether you're eager to follow the fallout of Secret Empire or are just ready for Captain America to move on, there's plenty to like in the first chapter of Mar Waid and Chris Samnee's new run. Waid is a seasoned Cap veteran at this point, and he proves that he hasn't lost his touch with the character. Samnee, meanwhile, shows that he's perfectly at home in any corner of the Marvel Universe. This run isn't shaping up to be a particularly groundbreaking, but it tells a good story and tells it well.

Captain America #695 is the Captain America comic that you've been looking for"hop on board folks. Read Full Review

    Captain America #695 is a brilliant start for the new creative team, being one of my favourite Legacy premier so far. Giving us a simple, yet symbolic narrative that puts Secret Empire firmly behind us, the creative team quickly remind us how a Captain America comic should be. They also introduce us to a new team of villains for our iconic hero to fight, with there being plenty of potential for the series. moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Nov 1, 2017

    I loved this issue and it hit all the right beats. It's great to see the Captain America that we all know and love back in the pages of Marvel. This run has the potential to reach the heights of other well regarded Captain America runs. I will definitely be back next month to see what this creative team has in store. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 2, 2017

    Captain America #695 is about as good as a Captain America book could be coming out of the “Secret Empire” event series. With the whole Hydra Cap thing, Sam Wilson being Captain America, and a host of other things going on, it was nice to see Steve Rogers get “back to the basics.” One of my favorite things"whether it be in writing, sports, or whatever"is the occasional fun, flashy, and exciting moment. But those need to be used sparingly and the old saying always true: the basics always work. I mean, that is why they are called “basic fundamentals!” While Captain America #695 is not the greatest story ever told, it is a good start and it is great to have “basic” Captain America back.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 2, 2017

    This is a weird one for me because how important it feels for me. I can definitely recommend it, and Im certainly going to give it a good score. Maybe Marvel did it; maybe they killed Captain America for me. Time will tell. That being said, pick this one up if youve missed classic Captain America comics. It definitely harkens back to those days. However, if youre looking for anything daring or fresh, this one isnt it. Maybe Ta-Nehisi Coates can bring something new to the Captain in a few months.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 3, 2017

    This is what the comic community has been asking for, Waid and Samnee deliver exactly what they needed to. Whether you enjoyed Secret Empire or not, Cap returning to form inspires a lot of hope in a time where we could really use some. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Nov 6, 2017

    While nothing out of this world, or really too exciting, happens in this issue I get the sense it will please a lot of long time Captain America fans to know the Steve they love is back.  The art by Samnee puts the issue over the top to make it something to recommended. I would say see if you like #695 and possibly continue going forward but the simplicity might not be for everyone. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Lune Nov 3, 2017

    A fairly safe issue, soaking every page in nostalgia rather than pushing the character forward, however this is still a solid standalone adventure for a newly returned Cap, and looks gorgeous too. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 1, 2017

    The art is amazing and the story traditional and reserved in many ways the comic has some action but more of a focus on the ideals of the title character. This feels like a statement as to who Cap is to Mark Waid and Chris Samnee and the ideals he'll represent as their story moves forward. A nice start that just a little more action and excitement.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 1, 2017

    This is a fun return to the legacy of Steve Rogers. His quest for redemption is a worthy one. I just hope it challenges him more in the future than this issue did. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Nov 1, 2017

    This is a fine story, but it hasn't set itself apart from the pack yet. Time will tell if Waid and Samnee can deliver the Captain America that we need right now. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 4, 2017

    The new Captain America series starts off small with a fluff story that is good enough to be entertaining, but nothing to really sink our teeth into. Fine stuff all around. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Nov 2, 2017

    It might be worth holding off until this debut story arc is finished and see if we are going to get the Waid from his Daredevil run or if we are going to get Waid from his All New All Different MarvelNOW titles. Hopefully, Waid finds his groove on Captain America and decides to give us the quality of writing that he did on his Daredevil run. Read Full Review
