    Things don't look great for Sam at the moment, but he shines in this storyline – and so do the team working on the comic. The artwork is impeccable and the story itself is unforgiving. “Take Back The Shield” has been great so far! Read Full Review

    While Sam Wilson’s days ahead look tough, Captain America: Sam Wilson #14 provides a springboard for this creative team to achieve greater heights. Nick Spencer continues to take Sam’s story to unexpected places while still keeping the same timeliness that has set this series apart from Steve Rogers’ sister title. On the art front, Paul Renaud and John Rauch deliver the same kind of detail and character moments that have made the Daniel Acuna issues so good-looking, while still providing distinct action and color choices. As #TakeBackTheShield has grown from grassroots outrage to a larger-scale conspiracy, Captain America: Sam Wilson #14 shows that there are still plenty of great stories to be told with Sam behind the shield.

    Let's just get this out of the way: Flag-Smasher is and forever shall be a dumb name for a supervillain. That said, his actions here get the ball rolling on #TakeBackTheShield, which looks to be one of the darkest stories in Sam Wilson's career. Read Full Review

    Captain America: Sam Wilson remains an interesting story that deftly weaves in political issues and this issue is a solid start to a new story arc that sets up the media – and public appearance – as potential future enemies for Sam. Read Full Review

    Overall this issue was good. There was a strong plot point and the dialogue was good and the art was fantastic, but the big surprise at the end pissed me off and I feel like they made Sam Wilson sound too much like a baby and a bit out of character. Read Full Review

    The current climate of politics is volatile to say the least. I'm surprised that Marvel is wading into the mix with this title. As always with politics you'll lose half your audience when you take a stand. It'll be interesting to see just how committed Marvel is to continue down this current path. Read Full Review
