    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 23, 2016

    Steve Rogers: Captain America #4 is a master stroke for the series. You'll get inside Captain America's head and feel a mix of emotions. This is psychological drama at its finest. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Aug 28, 2016

    Captain America: Steve Rogers has been a heck of a ride. For a book that is surrounded in controversy, Nick Spencer is turning out an amazing story that will have lasting consequences for Steve Rogers in the future. The pencils and colors absolutely rock this issue and youd be hard pressed to find better art in any other book this week. If youre not reading this series, youre missing out on all kinds of awesome.

    Spencer continues to take the character in interesting directions, further down a path that will be quite a challenge to come back from, if and when that ever happens. Cap's best traits are somehow still on display, though, but without any sort of filter, and it allows fans of the character to greater appreciate one of Cap's best and most overlooked qualities, his restraint.

    Though things got off to a controversial start, now that the scope of Nick Spencer's Captain America story is coming into focus it's quickly turning into one of the most intriguing chapters in the character's long history. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 24, 2016

    Yes, I know this story will eventually be worked out and (hopefully) we'll be back to the real Cap. But first we have to deal with some interesting plot points - and no doubt there will eventually be some Civil War business to address. But I admit that I'm looking forward to this story being wrapped up. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 27, 2016

    I'm really excited about what Spencer and Marvel might be building here, and the idea of an evil Captain America is quite thrilling, but this issue is a little too stuffed. Each and every plot looks like it could be important and interesting, but all of them jumbled together is a little too much, man. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Aug 26, 2016

    A mostly dialogue-heavy issue that still carries the plot, provides more background to Captain America's Kobik-altered history, and adds a new twist to his Hydra allegiances. Things are progressing, for better or worse, and it contains a few powerful moments, none of which have anything to do with "Civil War II." Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 24, 2016

    There's something interesting about the idea of Steve Rogers serving as a secret crusader amongst one of the Marvel Universe's most dangerous terror groups, but it's missing some key ingredients to make it all come together. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Aug 27, 2016

    I'll probably be back for the presumed finale in Captain America: Steve Rogers #5, just to see how Spencer wraps this up. Or I might just wait until I see a Steve Rogers I'd like to read again. Or maybe, just maybe I'll go back to one that is more of the symbol we need today. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 28, 2016

    Captain America, Steve Rogers #4 is a beautifully drawn collection of drawn-out dialogues that ends up feeling like 20 pages of lecture punctuated by blood. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Aug 24, 2016

    In all honesty, we feel as ifCaptain America: Steve Rogers is lacking in direction, mystery can work but only for so long. Eventually, Nick Spencer will need to get to the point and speed up the storytelling a bit before readers fall asleep. We have a little idea as to what this Captain America is about, so now the plot needs to pick up pace and stop being a drag on what started out as an interesting premise. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 23, 2016

    The issue continues a rather middling series. Captain America: Steve Rogers #4 isn't bad, but it's also not really worth your dollars either. As an issue it feels like it's job is to recap everything that has happened in just three issues and do some foreshadowing, it's just not enough, nor is anything vital that it's a comic you have to have to understand what's going on or what's to come.

    We The Nerdy - Marshall Bruno Aug 30, 2016

    It's suffice to say this comic has a different Steve Rogers than we know, in every possible way.I'm sure there are some of you out there that love this series, but others are just confused. I'm in that second camp. Maybe once this is all said and done we'll all look back and laugh at how we thought this story was going to be so bad but turned out to be the best Cap story told in years. I won't hold my breath for that, but I will keep my fingers crossed anyway. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jody Cardona Aug 29, 2016

    Bits and Pieces:In one issue, the intriguing Agent of Hydra storyline is brought to its knees by making our 'hero' as unlikable as possible. The story itself is very cluttered, which doesn't help as it tries to juggle the Civil War II plot points and those of its own series. If there is a saving grace to this book, it's the art of Javier Pina, who can make characters look amazing, and scenes just flat out petrifying(Dear god, that scene with Red Ghost is going to haunt me because of the gore, and I love it!). Overall, If you want to read this, wait till it's on sale. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Aug 28, 2016

    Going back to what could work with this series is how one of comics oldest rivalrieshas an inspired angle.It is not just blue blooded American vs a Nazi psychopath. Red Skull will clearly be dealing with the classic mantra of beworried for what you wish for. I only hope my wishes comes true an Spencer can break through all the static and make this book interesting again. Read Full Review
