    This is worth picking up for the story. Gage takes what could have been another throwaway crossover tie-in and actually delivers a worthwhile story about Cap and Bucky. I wish I could recommend it more, but the art really didn't fit here. Read Full Review

    On the other hand, there isn't much of a plot to speak of. Unlike Loki or the Young Avengers - both of which enjoy successful Siege one-shots this week - Bucky and Steve are central to the siege of Asgard storyline. A between-the-pages sidestory can only be so eventful before it begins to step on the toes of the main narrative. As such, it's sort of a sleepy issue in terms of developments. Federico Dallocchio's artwork gets the job done, but it's a no-frills affair to be sure. This issue is ultimately more notable for its concept (that James still has a long way to go mentally in filling the red boots of Captain America) than its actual execution. Read Full Review

    Overall, Siege: Captain America doesnt really add anything of importance to the current Captain America storyline or the Bucky/Steve quandary. Honestly, it doesnt add much to the overall Siege storyline either. Its not completely a throwaway issue, but if you missed this one, you might as well wait for the inevitable collected trade paperback edition. Read Full Review

    "Siege: Captain America" is a solid, but forgettable, issue. It's a textbook example of a tie-in issue that adds little to the main crossover, but tells an entertaining story. For "Siege" readers curious about Steve Rogers and James Barnes that aren't reading "Captain America," this could be worth a look, but, for anyone else, it's easily missed. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy Apr 13, 2010

    I hate giving such a low score for a book that, with just a little more work and in another context, could have been good. Or at least interesting. But the writing is lackluster and the art is ill-suited for the story. I really just don't see why this book was even created, much less released. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Apr 19, 2010

    There is so much wrong with this issue that it hurts. An extra three or four pages in Siege could have effectively summed up Bucky's state of mind making this issue obsolete. It all just seemed pointless especially for $2.99. I can understand wanting to dedicate time to certain characters during Siege but the concept of this family falling into the Siege battle zone is extremely weak. The family gets too entirely too much panel time. It does not make sense to spend time developing who this family is when any generic mother and child in danger would yield the same results.
