    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 19, 2018

    Captain America Annual #1 is an impressive read, skillfully crafted by talented creators. This is the kind of story where Captain America and the unique medium of comics can say so much while working within the framework of Super Soldiers and their sidekicks. Howard, Sprouse, Lim, Story, Wong, Hanna, Aburtov Arciniega, Silva and Caramagna have told a special story here. This isn't the kind of Annual that should be ignored or skipped, and I hope to see more of this kind of content in one-shot issues like this in the future. Read Full Review
