    When I was finished, I literally thought, "Wait, it's over already?!" It's so expertly crafted. More than anything, Steve Rogers actually stands for something again, and we would do well not to take it for granted. Read Full Review

    Captain America #5 is a rock solid comic that sold me on this story. This run has been strong so far, but this issue took this series to the next level, and when you get to one specific page in this comic, you'll nod in agreement. It feels like we are in the midst of an absolutely stellar Captain America run and I can't wait to read more. Read Full Review

    Ta-Nehisi Coates' script is insightful, sinister in its plots and everything one could hope for from a Captain America book. In short, the book was fantastic and one I hardily recommend. Read Full Review

    It's also appreciated that this issue got the story moving. A new arc should be on the horizon soon and it'll be a good opportunity to reset the game board and introduce somebig pieces to shake things up. Read Full Review
