    Jump on this book if you're a Cap fan. Whether or not you like Steve as himself and wish he was Captain America again shouldn't matter. Because costume or not, he is Captain America. This is one of the few times I'll recommend a mini-series since most of the time, they aren't that great, but this one is the exact opposite. Read Full Review

    Brubaker has a lot of fun slipping into Steve's head in this tale and providing the sort of terse narration he pulls off so wonderfully in books like Criminal. Watching the mystery villain so easily manipulate the former Cap's emotions makes for great, almost tragic theatre. And then that final twist comes and blows the doors open to a ton of intriguing possibilities. Has this ever been done before? I'm not sure if it has, but I know I love watching Brubaker boldly take off down this direction. And with Dale Eaglesham along for the ride providing bold, iconic imagery, Steve Rogers: Super Soldier is quickly becoming one of the best Cap stories on Brubaker's long, celebrated resume.

    Normally, mini-series like this are forgettable or unnecessary, but Ed Brubaker and Dale Eaglesham are quickly making "Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier" a must read for anyone that's a fan of the character. By building a story on the character's origins, the duo root the story in Rogers's past, but also use it to help show who he is now that he's no longer Captain America. And the end of the issue is one hell of a cliffhanger: the sort that dares you not to buy the next issue. Read Full Review

    Perhaps Brubaker will be able to save the mess that this story has become in the second issue after a promising first issue, but I doubt it. If this title was an ongoing series, as I initially thought it was, I would stop buying it now. However, since its only a four-issue miniseries, Ill buy the final two issues to see if Brubaker manages to salvage his story. However, schlocky super-villain plot twists and a breakdown of internal logic isnt the way to hook me on the contemporary Captain America material. Read Full Review
