    Empyre: Captain America #2 is an impressive exploration of the Cotati invasion and its forays into military policy basically hold up a mirror to America's Army and how it could be doing more than it usually does. Read Full Review

    Empyre: Captain America #2 is a perfect embodiment of who Steve Rogers is. Phillip Kennedy Johnson could write the main Cap title. Read Full Review

    The plot threads here make sense and over all, it pushes the whole spin-off forward. That said, it's still a far cry from being an essential part of the overall story of Empyre but after the improvement from issue #1 to #2, I'm anxious to see where this book goes next. Read Full Review

    Well, this issue is pointless as a Cap story and an Empyre tie-in. The story could have been told in a few panels in the main Empyre title, but we get a whole lot nothing. The art is good enough, the coloring is also quite good, but anything of the remotest of substance is pointlessly dragged out just to fill up the page count. The bottom line: you can completely skip this issue and be just fine. Read Full Review
