    It's a bit of a chore to wrap your head around some elements of this issue, but than again I was left with the sense that there is suppose to be a general sense of confusion about this story, and I will say that while I wasn't sure what to make of the last page reveal, I will say I was impressed by how effectively this surprise managed to address the howling masses that were sure to erupt in the aftermath of Captain America's use of a machine gun. The issue also manages to offer up a wonderful little moment where the Falcon takes some time out to talk over the issue with the gathered villains, and while this scene is largely an information dump, Christopher Priest delivers it in such a convincing manner that I was utterly riveted by Sam's dispassionate summation of the situation.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 3, 2011

    This issue gave me a chance to be introduced to the art of Rebekah Isaacs. Isaacs' art is clean and strong, reminding me of Leonard Kirk tinged with Terry Dodson. The characters are expressive in both face and form, using their bodies to act through the book. I'd like to see her draw some further adventures of the Falcon, especially if those adventures take Sam anywhere near a football field. Football players, like gorillas, cars, and horses, truly separate the good comic book artists from the average, and Isaacs steps over to the good side of the room here. Read Full Review

    Part of the appeal of this issue was seeing Rebekah Isaacs tackle Falcon and friends. Isaacs had a very strong showing in DV8: Gods and Monsters last year; her work isn't as strong in this issue. It lacks the open, expansive feel and the benefit of strong color work. Still, Isaacs' pages are well detailed and her action scenes graceful. Her pencils go a long way towards redeeming an otherwise forgettable story. Read Full Review
