    Comic Watch - Cody White Feb 4, 2019

    A dense thought-piece that will enrage some and invigorate many for all the wrong reasons. Coates continues to explore the very DNA of the United States and where our iconography and propaganda stand in the 21st century. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Feb 1, 2019

    Overall, issue #7 serves as a solid transition from a story about Captain America to a story about Steve Rogers (and co.). I'm a sucker for the 9-panel grid as a storytelling device and it's used effectively here on multiple occasions. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 30, 2019

    Captain America #7 takes a few small steps forward into an ominous plot. This issue concentrates on how and why Steve justifies his own steps, and the script does good work approaching classic Cap problems from novel angles. A rich artistic presentation adds considerable value and makes this feel like a promising start to a story worth following. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 5, 2019

    From the outset, it was evident that Coates was running with what Nick Spencer did during his time on Captain America, turning it into something genuinely interesting and nuanced. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden Jan 31, 2019

    Sharon Carters Aeternum Filias, or Eternal Daughters, mark an intriguing addition (or retcon) to Ta-Nehisi Coates Captain America, and potentially to the overall Marvel Universe. (Could The Daughters of Liberty somehow be connected to Johnathan Hickmans S.H.I.E.L.D. history?) However, their mysterious introduction comes at the conclusion of an otherwise unmemorable issue rife with rehashed reflections, and contrived rearrangement. Ta-Nehisi Coates run has, thus far, been insightful, yet slow-moving;similarly, Captain America #7 sets the scene for the Captain of Nothing arc, but does so in an overly methodical manner that only garners interest upon review and reflection.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 31, 2019

    Ta-Nehisi Coates delivers a strong start to "Captain of Nothing" with Captain America #7. Now that Steve Rogers has been locked up it is going to be up to Sharon Carter and Bucky Barnes to step up to find out who is manipulating current events to create greater chaos in the world. In doing so Coates has created several sub-plots within "Captain of Nothing" that are equally compelling to the greater narrative of this series. Read Full Review

    An ideological dive into what makes Steve Rogers Captain America. A story that asks what it means to carry the shield. Read Full Review
