    CAPTAIN AMERICA #702 definitely improves upon what was started in #701. The story feels more accessible now, and the world just keeps growing more and more entertaining. Read Full Review

    Personally, I love the art and it does a great job giving it an older look but updated in a way. And, this is a must-read book that I keep pushing higher up on my pull list. It's definitely in the top 4 books I want to read when it comes out. Waid is doing a fantastic job right now and everyone should be reading this. Add it to your pull. You'll love it!  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White May 23, 2018

    In the last issue (Captain America #701), the focus of the narrative was unclear, leading to what appeared to be a highlight forum for some high-profile artists to get to do Captain America sequences set in a story with no real consequences. With part 2, however, the story gains some much-needed traction and becomes reminiscent of some of Waids more prestigious work. I am very much looking forward to seeing what comes next.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 18, 2018

    Captain America #702 provides a stark improvement over the previous issue. The story takes more unique turns, Jack Rogers is allowed room to breathe as a character, and the art team contributes some great work. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given May 22, 2018

    I love a good mystery and this one shows us a twist that most wouldn't have expected. It keeps us guessing right up until the last page when Jack Rogers finds an important relic from his father's era. But with the discovery comes…to be continued. ***1/2 (8.2 rating) Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 16, 2018

    There is a better story to be told in this issue, but the focus that was chosen takes away from what was a pretty compelling opening. Hope the next issue is more exciting. Read Full Review

    There's a fun twist ending, and some of the individual artwork is stunning, but otherwise, it feels like there's not much to hold onto. Read Full Review

    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.

    Jack Rogers in on the run. His face is posted everywhere for New Washington to see. Where can he hide? What can he do? Well, lucky for him, historians have a secret hideout to hang out with other historians that is excluded from time. Picture it like a Speakeasy meets Fight Club... but for time. No one is allowed to share what they talked about outside of this club and past transgressions are ignored. Good thing Jack is a historian!

    Well, while Jack is there hiding out, he finds this old wackadoo that everyone ignores who overheard his story and d more

    I am enjoying this story, even if it will be lost in the annals of comic time as the brief interim before the death of a series and its rebirth. But this is suspenseful and a lot of fun. I am really liking the art, as Romero has a Samnee-esque style I really like, and getting to see Chayken draw Marvel again was really cool. I'm digging on this.

    I've been enjoying this alternate future tale. It has some good art and the story is pretty entertaining, it's nothing special, but it is a pretty good comic book.

    Jack Rogers's story expands to include his fellow Historians. That part's pretty cool. Less cool are the steps taken to bend not just the flashbacks but also the main story toward "Cap vs. Red Skull and his Cosmic Cube" for the millionth time. Add in visuals that share the plot's downward trend and you have a slightly above-average issue that bodes ill for the future.

    Glad this run is wrapping up. Getting worse as it goes. All over the place. Art took a nose dive after Samnee left.

    Boring. Art hurts it more. Tying in Cube makes it worse.
