    "Out of Time" seems like exactly the kind of story that Captain America was created to tell, and the first issue is executed flawlessly. Read Full Review

    Captain America #698 is another excellent entry in the saga of Steve Rogers.

    CAPTAIN AMERICA #698 is a great start to the "Man Out of Time" arc. It sets the stakes and the playing field, informs you of all the players, and gets you excited for the battle to come. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 14, 2018

    A classic trope for Steve Rogers is used to start a story about twisting the ideals of America to suit the needs of the chosen few while giving Steve a new mission and challenge. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 15, 2018

    The action and storytelling are as dynamic as ever, but the unusual character designs and world-building result in an issue that stands out in stark contrast to its predecessors. Let;'s hope Waid and Samnee keep taking risks like this. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 19, 2018

    A well-written and well-drawn tale, but the book still feels haunted by the last arc. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Mar 7, 2018

    This issue was actually really good. It's a return to form, of sorts, for the good Captain. Back in the day, he fought Nazis and Communists, and now here he is in the future, fighting what appears to be the same threat! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alex Curtis Feb 19, 2018

    "Captain America" #698 isn't very subtle, but with creators this focused and masterful, it's irresistibly exhilarating. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 14, 2018

    The arc leading to the big shiny #700 starts off plenty enjoyable. There's still a lot of heavy lifting to do if it's going to get truly epic, though. This issue is primarily a post-apocalyptic Secret-Empire-echoing setup so that Good Ole Cap can do his thing in the next two issues. Fortunately, Mark Waid and Chris Samnee have already proved capable of portraying Good Ole Cap flawlessly, and this launch pad of an issue has them primed for blastoff. Read Full Review

    If Waid can find something to say with this arc, it'll be a win. But his work here is too timid to inspire confidence in that end. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Feb 16, 2018

    Overall this is a recommendable issue despite not being as sharp as the past few. At the end of the day, it is just great to see Captain America in the hands of creators that fully comprehend what makes him an icon. Read Full Review
