    While we don't have a Sam Wilson in the world to help end police brutality, it's nice to see a world where they do to help us imagine what it would be like. Read Full Review

    The simple fact that Daniel Acuna is back on board with this issue is cause enough for celebration. Acuna helps kick off the series' Civil War II tie-in arc in style, balancing the high-flying heroics of the Avengers with the all-too real pain and bloodshed of the war against the Americops.

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 8, 2016

    The artwork in Issue #11 has it moments: sometimes it's jam-packed with detail and looks outstanding, and other times it looks rather standard. This doesn't mean it's bad though, as it gives you a good feel as to what's occuring and how the characters are feeling at that precise moment. Read Full Review

    Difficult topics, handled better than I worried they would be, with excellent art. Still can't wait til Civil War II is over... Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jody Cardona Jul 11, 2016

    Bits and Pieces:If I had to describe this issue in a single word, it would be unbalanced. On the one hand, you have a very promising and topical story with a nice tie to the current event, while on the other you have some messy character interactions that leave a little bit of a bitter taste on both sides on the conflict. As expected, the art of Daniel Acuna still makes the book look unique and awesome. While I might not have liked the Civil War parts, I can't wait to see where this story goes. Read Full Review

    I want to give this a higher grade, because I think this book is onto something, but Spencer's ham-handedness in discussing these delicate matters can't be ignored. Read Full Review

    Captain America comics have always reflected what was going on socially and politically at the time throughout its run. The difference between Sam and Steve being Steve taking an old fashioned view on the subjects. While Sam may not hold the old fashion view the spirit of the book is still very much the same. It seems Spencer reminds us how similar the path is by throwing in some nostalgia when he tells his stories. We see the continued problem of the aggressive Americops and nostalgia creep in again with one of the most violent men to carry the title Captain America, the (now) U.S. Agent. Also Sam hears both friends side of the building war as they try to gain his allegiance. Spencer does a good job of showing the struggle in making choices when you are a symbol of America. Acuna has a unique style that is catching. This is one of the titles is getting stronger for me as it goes along.

    Another week, and this time we really get to hear what Sam Wilson really thinks about the events of Civil War II so far and the Americop story arc begins to hot up. A solid issue, nothing spectacular but an enjoyable read none the less.
