    Though CAPTAIN AMERICA #701 may not be for everyone, there's a lot here to hold your interest. The story of Jack Rogers is definitely worth checking out. And if you don't want to check out the story, then at least check out the art. Read Full Review

    This was a great showcase for some classic Cap moments in an issue dealing with Steve Rogers legacy. Read Full Review

    While Romero's art occasionally falters -- largely in gratuitous shots of a female character -- there's still enough for readers to enjoy. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a clinic in visual storytelling, this is your book. But if you're looking for a good Captain America story, sadly, you'll have to look elsewhere. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White May 9, 2018

    Unless this arc takes a shocking turn somewhere along the way, I doubt it will go down as something fans will be talking about years, or even months from now, but not all comics need to be groundbreaking. I have hopes that, as Promised Land develops, it will get better, but if it stays the course, it will still be a fun, although throwaway, story. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 3, 2018

    Captain America #701 is a lengthy setup for an underwhelming finale. While the book isnt quite bad, it comes dangerously close to becoming dull, and thats the worst thing a story can do. The artists turn in great work, and I can still recommend the book, but its not required reading. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden May 30, 2018

    By placing the entirety of his final Captain America arc in a disposable future timeline, absent of the protagonist, Waid is signaling that his remaining issues are nothing more than fluff meant to fill pages until Ta-Nehisi Coates takes the reigns and soft-reboots the series in July.

    Nice little story spanning past and future by Waid and a good combo of artists to illustrate it. Romero made it look like Samnee never left..almost. Hughes was a pleasure to see!

    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.

    Mark Waid is killing it with Captain America. His last arc was fantastic, fun, and original. His arc seems to be on track for the very same thing. We open a story in the past with Bucky and Cap chasing down Hydra, which just so happened to steal some of the Super Solder Serum to create their own Super Soldiers (common theme I know). While Cap takes on this Nazi looking brute of a woman, Bucky chases down the serum and gets it before it was too late.

    We then fast forward to the far future of Earth where we see a young Steve Rogers, which turns out more

    This issue is weird, but I also really liked it. I found the artwork of Adam Hughes, even if it only was 4 pages, to be gorgeous, and I also really liked Leonardo Romero's kind of Chris Samnee/Darwyn Cooke style. The part where Jack gets caught in the office and has to escape is so well drawn--it's just excellent. This may be kind of an Elseworlds thing, but that doesn't matter to me. It seems like an interesting way to wrap up this series before the new one relaunches soon.

    This was an interesting book that no one really asked for or needed, but definitely a worthwhile read with a fun concept.

    Several centuries in the future, Cap's descendant confronts dangerous secrets lurking just beneath the surface of his shiny happy world. It's a thrilling story, but it's surprisingly exposition-heavy for an arc that'll reach four issues. Stellar usage of stellar guest art for the historical flashbacks counterbalances the somewhat weak characterization and scene-setting. The second flashback is Cap working for SHIELD in 1968 and I LOVE how flagrantly it flips the bird at the sliding timescale.

    This whole story arc has been terrible and the wrap up was even worse.
