    If you are among the throngs of fans that are turned off by hamfisted political commentary, I would urge you to readCaptain America with an open mind. If you want to see a liberal boogeyman here, I'm certain you can convince yourself of its presence, but the multi-layer narrative actually may be the most bi-partisan (or perhaps anti-partisan) text to be found in comics today.

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Oct 11, 2018

    Marvel's highly unlikely to make their books reflect reality too closely, but if you read this series from a contemporary lens, it's brilliant. And a nice poke in the ribs to the "leave politics out of my comics [that are actually about politics"]" crowd. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 10, 2018

    The issue is another excellent entry from the team and Cap has been one that's a mix of action and exploration of today's America and the situations we face. It's a superhero comic that makes you think and is a prime example that you can easily mix politics with superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Oct 10, 2018

    CAPTAIN AMERICA #4 is a good effort to push the story forward, but Ta-Nehisi Coates needs to spend less time in Steve's head and more time in the world. The story needs to move. Read Full Review

    As Captain America zeroes in on some very specific action, the series delivers its most limited and most exciting issue so far. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 10, 2018

    Leinil Francsis Yu has some great art in this issue and the use of shadows and the details in the backgrounds do a great job of conveying the dangerous nature of Steve's surroundings. Well done. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 12, 2018

    Captain America #4 was a strong read that furthered the plot that Ta-Nehisi Coates is crafting in a positive direction. After several issues of little development Coates finally makes Alexa a compelling character by tying her into a big event that happened during Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America involving Sharon Carter. That connection elevates everything that has been going on in this story, creating more questions for Captain America and Sharon Carter to have to deal with. If your a Captain America fan I recommend checking Coates run out as he is bringing in a lot of past continuity into in a great, logical way. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 13, 2018

    Despite a solid, interesting take on Captain America in today's world, the rest of the story leaves a lot to be desired. Read Full Review
