    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 11, 2018

    Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Matthew Wilson have definitelyput their stamp on Captain America. They have told a wonderful trove of stories throughoutthese past5 issues and Captain America #700 is a shining achievement. Waid is staying on after this issue as the writer but Chris Samnee is gone (hopefully Matthew Wilson is staying on), so there will be big shoes to fill in Captain America #701. But for now, just enjoy a delightful Captain America story that will remind you why Steve Rogers is Captain America and why he is so revered among the Marvel Heroes and someone we can all look up to!

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 11, 2018

    Most anniversary issues like this are devoted to introducing earth-shattering plot twists and setting the tone for a series going forward. Cap #700 takes a more character-driven approach, using its futuristic setting to test Steve Rogers in compelling new ways and explore the enduring appeal of this character. It serves as a fitting conclusion to Waid and Samnee's latest collaboration. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 12, 2018

    Captain America #700 lives up to the expectations one would have of such a landmark comic. The narrative is powerful and emotional while posing a unique struggle for Captain America. Waid and Samnee continue to show how much they understadn the character of Steve Rogers. As such, I can recommend it. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Apr 11, 2018

    The main story was fantastic and hit the right emotional beats for me but reading the backup and being disappointed upon closing the issue is definitely not the emotion the comic was trying to elicit from me. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 11, 2018

    The backup story closes with the proud assertion that "Captain America is one of a kind," and that's a line I'd happily hoist a glass to. While I'm underwhelmed by a few bits of #700 and the strategic layout of the "Out Of Time" arc as a whole, I wouldn't dream of saying its heart is in the wrong place. The Waid/Samnee look at Cap closes with the same insightful, resiliently positive view of its protagonist it's had since day one. This issue might not be a critical turning point in Cap's story, but it is a joyous demonstration and celebration of why we love him. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Apr 11, 2018

    Though it isn't exactly the blockbuster issue one would expect from such a momentously numbered issue, thanks to Waid's sterling character work and Samnee's gorgeous pages, Captain America #700 is still a fittingly fun and surprisingly science fiction infused tribute to the "First Avenger" and his time-hopping adventures.

    Comicosity - Michael Hale Apr 11, 2018

    In the end, this all-too-short story arc for Cap has come to a close and were sort of left where we began, but that isnt a bad place so long as there is always the promise of more Captain America to come in our futures. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden Apr 18, 2018

    Captain America #700 completes a mildly fun, but instantly forgettable, hackneyed time travel tale, before trampling giddily over Jack Kirbys contributions in a manner more parody than homage. Read Full Review

    Waid, Samnee and Wilson just put out a great ending to this mini-story. Not perfect but it hit on so many notes that make it a worthy story of what Captain America is and should be. The second story with Kirby's art just put a smile on my face and had me asking how did Kirby make this art so many decades ago. It's beautiful.
    The only down side to this comic is the price. Yes we have 18 more pages but if you keep raising prices i have no choice but to drop other books. I can't afford them all especially when multiple issues come out in the same week costing 5-6 dollars. Yes this book is worth the money but i had to skip X-men Blue this week because it was also 4.99. Sorry but this is a short sighted tactic that will hurt the industry long term. Rant over.

    Would have been a 10 if the back up story was better, but wow. That main story was just awesome. Cant't get much better than that. Few comics make me feel the way I did after reading that one.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    We all knew that Cap would have to make it back to the present, but how? Well, we get that answer from jump street. Dr Banner fixes up part of the Fantastic Fours time machine into what appears to be a gun and says he’s timed it for approximately a week before Cap gets frozen this time around. If calculated correctly, Cap being frozen and the bomb going off is what triggered this future. So if Cap stops that from happening, we’ll be right as rain.

    But Cap doesn’t buy it. What if Banner is wrong? What if he can’t stop it from happening if he goes back? What if an alternate timeline happens instead leaving this existence still in tack? So he decides to stay for almost a year fighting to take down the remaining army of Babbington as well as every other new ruler who wants to try to take over America after Babbingtons defeat.

    Point is: Cap decides now to go back since he feels like he’s in a losing battle he can’t win, which in all honest seemed out of character for him in my opinion. As I’ll point out later, Caps a fighter and that doesn’t seem like a fighter to me.

    Cap goes back but it turns out it’s 10 minutes before the bomb goes off and he watches himself get frozen. The scene was very Back to the Future looking and I LOVED IT!! He hops on the missile as it takes off, cerca WW2 style, and gets it to blow up in the air over the ocean. This part was the best part of the comic and really shows that the writer gets Cap.

    In my humble opinion, Cap will do whatever it takes to save people and win. He’s not the smartest guy and he might not be the strongest, but he is a fighter until the end no matter what the odds. Even though Cap knows he’s going to die, just like he thought back in WW2 hoping on the missile, he rips it apart getting it to blow up in the air k
