    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin May 29, 2017

    While some might be annoyed at the lack of quick-fix action or be appalled at the storyline, it's still an incredible issue. The politics of it may be a bitter pill for some to swallow, but Steve Rogers: Captain America #17 is a topical, socially relevant tale and is highly recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 24, 2017

    A strong, Frontline type story that makes a strong point to fear the propaganda of a government! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 24, 2017

    In terms of its contribution to the larger Secret Empire narrative, Captain America: Steve Rogers #17 is a winner. It offers crucial context for the story and how Hydra's rise impacts both the superhuman community and ordinary Americans. But as with so many issues of this series, the art is disappointingly rushed and haphazard. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark May 26, 2017

    Spencer's script is strong here as the tension in the interview slowly builds to a boiling point. Sure this was basically an excuse to layout a bunch of exposition, but at least it was handled well. The issue comes from the aforementioned art. When your comic is built on conversation you need to have panels filled with quality acting. That was by no means the case. Whether it is the strict deadlines these artist have to meet or the sheer amount of content they have to keep up with, something is amiss when the biggest comic book company in the world is putting out substandard content.

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 25, 2017

    With art that's just not up to par and a story that feels like a writer attempting to justify an entire event, Captain America: Steve Rogers #17 falls flat in so many ways. It's another example of a poorly thought out event that's being driven in odd ways with mixed messages. An issue that gives a little more depth feels more like a Twitter rant justifying its own existence. Read Full Review

    The art is terrific, but the story's been dragged out for far too long. The end can't get here fast enough for me. Read Full Review
