    Bob Quinn delivers some awesome action scenes in this issue. There are great visual moments throughout and the fight with Selene is the highlight. Both sides of the story are filled with great details and the art enhances the story brilliantly. Read Full Review

    The latest issue of Captain America falls prey to the same cons of previous installments in that it has a strong story with art work that is both under par and not necessarily fit for the kind of story that Coates is trying to tell for Steve Rogers and company. Read Full Review

    Sigh, is it bad that I wish Nick Spencer was writing Captain America again? Spencer's run was divisive, but at least it was telling an interesting story throughout. This just feels so barren, and it does the one thing I'm starting to hate, which is use a line that came from the movie. It's lazy writing and only exists to please the dummies reading the book. This is a book that definitely needs a new fresh team, and I hope Marvel does reboot the series similar to what Iron Man is getting this fall with Christopher Cantwell and Cafu.

    This is fine but sort of slow? I liked the fight scene I guess, and the art is nice.

    Captain America #22 seems to finally start walking, after 22 extremely dragged magazines. And with that, he finally highlighted Sharon Carter, a character who has always been with Steve Rogers, and was unable to act until then. Coates keeps the villain Selene and his plan standing, as well as the essence of Steve Rogers, Captain America, is alive, which is good. What the magazine must do now is to stop playing with Sharon's life and make her stand out even more, as it she always deserved. The magazine also needs to stop inciting female rivalry. "Sharon or Peggy?" how about both? they have fans who appreciate their participation. And Steve and Sharon are already a established couple in the comics. I hope that Coates will put his hand on his more

    I think there's a lot of intrigue to uncover with the overarching story, but as a single issue, this is not the best. Some of it is used to exposit and explain away a plot point. The rest is an admittedly fun action scene, with some classic Cap moments in it. The plot doesn't move much at all. This is honestly a problem with a lot of Ta-Nehisi Coates' comics. This man isn't writing for the trade, he's writing for the saga. That's why Black Panther works so much better collected than issue to issue. Same is probably going to be true of his Captain America run. I like the themes and ideas behind the overarching story. I think those are really excellent. But the execution needs work.

    I was excited by the fight scene but mostly because this book has been such a snooze that it was exciting to see anything happen. To be fair Quinn does a decent job and I do like Agent Carter and the gals. Does she deserve to be the next Iron Patriot? Of course felt about as gimmicky as the line she delivered from the film...

    Other plot threads quiet down so we can concentrate on beating Selene, a baddy who will take some beating. This issue features a nicely-orchestrated long-form fight scene. The art is better, but still hasn't quite got me to "good." And the MCU thievery, culminating in a swiped final line that launches a thousand eyeballs a-rolling, is troubling. The original parts of the script are great: lean and elegant. This issue characterizes Selene, Cap, and Sharon very well.

    There was a really good few pages but most of it drags a little. Please just get on to something more purposeful.
