    Only two more issues to go. Love the story. I'm wondering though if writer Ed Brubaker will wrap up this story here or continue it in the regular Cap title. It almost seems you would need more than just two more issues to wrap things up. Whatever the case, it's still good. A lot of action and some great artwork. Still recommend this series.

    This was an exceptionally good issue, which really isn't much of a surprise considering who the writer is. Not only was story great, the dialogue was fantastic, especially Steve's inner monologue, and Bryan's art was beautiful. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 17, 2009

    This issue is so incredibly well put together that it does more than enough good to salvage was turning to be a really, really disappointing story. Ed Brubaker returns to form by reminding us why his Captain America run was so addictive. When you combine some of the strongest work ever to come out of Bryan Hitch, you have a book that excels on all levels and really should not be missed. Captain America Reborn just sent from teetering on the edge of epic failure to mindblowingsuccessthusfar in just one issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 20, 2009

    The art on this issue is fan-freakin'-tastic, with Bryan Hitch reminding me of why I liked him waaay back when he took over She-Hulk from John Byrne. The awkwardness that made his Fantastic Four so difficult to read is gone here, leaving behind the epic scale and clear storytelling that made Ultimates fun. Ed Brubaker seems to be having fun here, weaving together plot-threads and hints from the last three years of Cap and related side-stories. There's still two issues to go here, so I imagine a few twists are still in store before we deal with the actual revelations and/or resurrections. My major disappointment here is in how much I like James Barnes as Captain America, and (much as with Barry Allen) how bringing back the old guy feels a little bit too much like the return of the status quo. Still and all, this issue is the first where Steve actually gets to DO something heroic, which is nice, and the story isn't sagging the way some five issue stories with 'Rebirth' in the title seeme Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 15, 2009

    "Captain America: Reborn" is the Cap story everyone has been waiting for since Cap was killed. This year marks the seventieth anniversary of Captain America's adventures in four-color, it is only appropriate that Captain America gets such terrific treatment. This story will be collected in time for the release of the feature film starring the Sentinel of Liberty, so if you miss it now, be sure to make a mental note to pick up the collected edition. After all, collected editions lend themselves to being read over and over again, which is what you'll want to do with this story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Sep 16, 2009

    Art blips aside, Reborn #3 is a perfectly solid entry into the Brubaker Cap mythos. True to his style, he peppers the issue with dire twists for the heroes and establishes a nigh-insurmountable antagonistic force for them to push against. But more than that, it's the first issue of Reborn that feels like a proper issue of Captain America, which is what I think many readers have been looking for. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Sep 15, 2009

    Still, I can't shake the feeling that Captain America: Reborn doesn't seem to be as concerned with telling the story of how Steve Rogers will make his return to the Marvel Universe as much as it is with telling the story of how he became the Captain America that we know and love in the first place. And whilst that might be the story that Brubaker and Hitch set out to tell, it isn't what I was hoping to see. Read Full Review
