    Both artists bring some great imagery to their stories. Leonard Kirk has a great eye for a story grounded in dark intensity. Michael Cho brings a classic sensibility to the art in the second story and the style of the art and its characters has a timeless quality. Read Full Review

    Another meaningful entry that not only takes time to dissect Steve's character, but that of Sharon Carter as well, proving Coates mastery of this part of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Nov 18, 2020

    The current volume of Captain America reaches its twenty-fifth issue with a stylish pair of stories that aim to challenge their characters' relationships with momentous events in their lives. While Cap revisits his friend's struggles to carve out a positive life in the United States, Sharon revisits the impact of constant war on Peggy Carter's life and how it molded both her own and Alexa's present. Streamlined portraits and block shadows dominate both Cho and Kirk's artwork, lending a sleek sensibility to Falcone and Coates' scripts. Captain America #25 balances taut action with a strong inner voice to produce an understated but impactful comic book. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lia Galanis Nov 18, 2020

    Coates has done wonders developing Sharon's character and through the Daughters of Liberty, he has done more for Peggy Carter's character than any modern writer. His run continues to be intriguing and politically conscious, though one often wonders when Steve himself will get his day in the sun as well. In that respect, it's certainly the outlier in the various Captain America runs, though that's hardly a bad thing. Read Full Review

    Captain America #25 is another magazine where we see Sharon Carter narrating and starring. And that is tremendously good. Anyone who doesn't understand what Coates is doing is probably thinking that this is the worst Captain America magazine.

    But all the men who innovated something were severely criticized. Coates is not writing an action comic. He's writing a novel, a real book with drawings. And he is also giving protagonists a lead role, something that, if it didn't happen in a Captain's magazine, would probably not sell well as solo. Not if these characters didn't get married from where to start. And yet, this is still about Captain America. And what is Captain America about? About all of us.

    For those who did not more

    The Coates story continues his run and it's... Satisfactory. It does what it sets out to do but I don't find it extremely engaging. I wish I did because I liked the last few issues, but I just didn't. I felt nothing with that ending. Nothing at all.

    The second story was honestly much better. I kind of despise America in a lot of ways but by virtue of being born here, I guess I find myself caught up in that patriotic spirit at times. But never for the sake of the government, only for the people. And I think that, especially in the current awful political climate that will no doubt be overtaken by a worse one in the years and decades to come, sometimes a story about Captain America being Captain America is necessary or at least ful more

    This run feels so stretched out and slow moving, I feel so disconnected from it. The second story was actually really nice, it touched my stupid cynical little heart, so this is getting a higher score than it probably otherwise would have.

    And we're back to another skip worthy issue. Super corny second half

    While the art has been inconsistent at best, Acuna's issue 24 being the best, Coates' focus on Sharon and the Daughters is absolutely correct, and much needed. This issue continues her soliloquy and bears down on the Daughters, and on Peggy. At first I was put off by Peggy's reboot but in the context of the Daughters I'm settling into a nice vibe here ... especially with the Carter sisters. I believe this will stand the test of time, and cannot thank Coates enough for acknowledging previous iterations by Remender and Spencer. Tidying up their threads needed to be done. Looking forward to a meeting again with James and Nat here. The Black Widow's treatment by Spencer, and the following clone saga in TOS was ... well an abomination. No doubt more

    The main story, eh. Its more Sharon than anything and its more of a learning issue. I really liked the back up story the best.

    Ahh, dammit. Right back to divergent philosophical narration on top of forgettably-drawn fight scenes. The B strip elevates things considerably, though it runs a bit long.
