    I'm really not a fan of John Romita Jr. While I was positively surprised in the first volume, the art here is totally different, and it's ugly. The problem is that the style changes every issue because there are many different inkers and colorists, so it's very inconsistent. Sometimes it's fine and sometimes it's too detailed and unreadable. I have no idea why. Maybe Romita hadn't enough time to draw. The art is a huge letdown in this volume.

    Fortunately, Rick Remender is a real master! As always, the characterization of the protagonist is perfect and the narration is interesting and innovative. The story is full of surprises and of twists. There is no boring moment. For me, what he's doing with Captain America is unique. I loved this long story arc, but it would have been way better with another artist. The ending is incredible and I'm tremendously excited for the next volumes!
