    Please pick up this issue, as well as this arc. You will be happy you did. Better yet; go back another arc and just grab it all! This is how you write a story. I can tell Waid has thought out this story entirely before writing it and it shows. Put the next issue on your pull list before it's too late. You've been warned. Read Full Review

    CAPTAIN AMERICA #703 does a solid job of keeping you interested, but the series is showing some fatigue. You may walk away feeling like nothing substantial really happened in this issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 8, 2018

    Captain America #703 is easily the best issue of this story arc and hopefully signals a turning point for the better in Mark Waid's final tale in the series. It's fast-paced, Jack Rogers has come into his own as a protagonist, and the artists contribute great work. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 6, 2018

    I want to like this storyline, but there are too many issues with the main character that prevent me from seeing the potential of him being heroic or even useful. Hopefully, this story finds its voice and does something great. Read Full Review

    I may have set myself up for failure here, given that I spent a large part of the week writing a Kingdom Come review, which you should check out if you havent! Read Full Review

    Any attempt at subtlety that Mark Waid may have been making in his latest Captain America story goes out the window in #703 as the conflict becomes defined as the technocratic, universalist, elite blue-skinned Kree against the retrograde fascism and hate of the Red Skull, with regular people caught in the middle, their only hope resting with America's youth -- literally, youngest descendant of Captain America.

    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.

    This is some creative Waid writing. I am loving this arc, as well as the last, and I’m pumped to see what happens next. At the end of last issue, Waid threw a curve ball at us unleashing the Red Skull, who was trapped in the Cosmic cube for many years. Everyone thought we’d get Cap back to help bring down the secret Kree sleeper soldier program. Turns out, we got the opposite.

    So, I just assumed that we’d open this issue with Cap jumping out of the Cosmic Cube right after Skull. But, boy was I wrong. That is not the issue we got at all! more

    Jack is either completely helpless or a cunning schemer as the Red Skull breaks open the secret of Kree infiltration on Earth. Alan Davis illustrating the flashback to the Cap's Kooky Quartet era of the Avengers is a high point, and in the future setting, the story just managed to engage my curiosity. I'm thinking/hoping there's a huge twist coming and I can't wait to see it.

    I actually kind of like this story unlike some of the others on here. The only gripe I really have is that if Captain America doesn't return in the next/last issue, this whole thing to me is kind of pointless than. Who wants to read a Cap book with no cap? I've been a fan of Romero's art since Hawkeye so I'm pleased as well on that front.

    It's OK. A Cap book about Cap but without much Cap for many issues now.....why? Romero's art saves this one.

    I have been enjoying this arc, but this issue fell a little flat for me. I did really enjoy seeing Alan Davis' pencils for 5 or so pages, a really great scene which reminded me of Neal Adams' art. I'm also digging Romero here, but I think I'm almost ready for the Cap relaunch. I don't object to this Cap-free arc, but this one felt a bit like filler.

    I honestly don't get what's was the idea with this. Second time we go back to the future, and this time without Cap even being there. Feels like they ran out of ideas and this is all just filler material waiting for Coates' run to start. Which is probably the case.

    Series has gone from bad to worse. Bring on the next team....and hurry it up! This crap is painfull. Destined for the 50¢ box that gets set outside the front door on Saturday’s.
