    Cap s being targeted by another blast from the past This time it s a fellow soldier and former ally called Bravo that got left behind on a WW2 mission and has somehow survived to the present day and is now allied with Hydra This is a decent Captain America book but I think Ed Brubaker s gone back to the well of WW2 and brought back a new forgotten character nemesis of Cap s one too many times at this point It s also hard to care about the latest person from yesteryear with a grudge against Cap s being targeted by another blast from the past This time it s a fellow soldier and former ally called Bravo that got left behind on a WW2 mission and has somehow survived to the present day and is now allied with Hydra This is a decent Captain America book but I think Ed Brubaker s gone back to the well of WW2 and brought back a new forgotten character nemesis of Cap s one too many times at this point It s also hard to care about the latest person from yesteryear with a grudge against Cap for this or that we ve just met the person but we re instantly meant to be invested in their revenge scheme Hmm I liked some of Brubaker s flourishes like the Inception esque dream states in Jimmy Jupiter s dreamworld, and the 18 foot tall android in a Cap uniform, Ameridroid, was amusing in a campy way It s also cool to see some elite Hydra soldiers causing trouble for Cap somebody in that organisation s gotta be dangerous, otherwise they re just evenof a joke Steve McNiven s art is once again a highlight basically every time this guy s on a book, his artwork becomes the best part about it He has a very appealing cinematic style that s really clean, making it look like you re watching a bright HD screen lots of wide shots and big panels show off the action superbly And I liked that this was still when they were using the classic Cap outfit with the scaly chainmail, the wings on the helmet and the bitchin corsair boots I like the modern Cap uniform too but the classic look is classic for a reason Ed Brubaker is still the best writer to read on a Captain America book but this one came out some 7 8 years after Winter Soldier and it feels like his inspiration for the character at this point is running low It s not Brubaker s most engaging effort but it s not bad and Steve McNiven s art is always worth checking out Cap remains the man out of time who can t escape his past no matter how much you wish he would and deal with present dangers instead

    This is a bucket of original recipe Captain America with Steve Rogers back in his old uniform and teaming up with Version 1.0 Nick Fury instead of V2.0 Ultimate Samuel L Jackson.Rogers, Fury and Sharon Carter are attending the funeral of an old friend when they re attacked by a man that Steve recognizes from his World War II days A botched mission from back then has come back to bite them, and they find themselves up against a former ally as well as elements of Hydra It s getting seriously ha This is a bucket of original recipe Captain America with Steve Rogers back in his old uniform and teaming up with Version 1.0 Nick Fury instead of V2.0 Ultimate Samuel L Jackson.Rogers, Fury and Sharon Carter are attending the funeral of an old friend when they re attacked by a man that Steve recognizes from his World War II days A botched mission from back then has come back to bite them, and they find themselves up against a former ally as well as elements of Hydra It s getting seriously hard to imagine anyone but Brubaker writing Cap from now on He delivers satisfying stories that regularly delve into the past of the character while always keeping him moving forward into the future I especially liked the undercurrent of dissatisfaction that develops with Steve starting to question what America has become

    This was just okay A little bland The art was drop dead gorgeous.One thing I appreciate about Brubaker s Cap, he really gets the supporting cast Dugan, Fury, Sam and Sharon are here and they all have a role This is probably the most I ve seen Sharon get to kick ass and fight It was greatly appreciated There isn t a ton of introspection in this volume but, the set up at the end makes me think the next one will have some.

    My first Captain America comic ever And it was awesome Brubaker is known for his crime comics, and this is no exception Well, with the exception of alternate dimensions I guess that s new But Cap is a time traveler, so that s not a stretch At any rate, this is action packed There are great twists and moments of suspense And the dialog is top notch Most of all, it made me care for Steve Rogers character and his complex history Steve McNiven is cinematic His illustrations are from the s My first Captain America comic ever And it was awesome Brubaker is known for his crime comics, and this is no exception Well, with the exception of alternate dimensions I guess that s new But Cap is a time traveler, so that s not a stretch At any rate, this is action packed There are great twists and moments of suspense And the dialog is top notch Most of all, it made me care for Steve Rogers character and his complex history Steve McNiven is cinematic His illustrations are from the school of realism like Brubaker s indie cohort Sean Phillips They re bold, sharp, with fluid action.Overall I was surprised This was an exciting read I m not a big Marvel fan But if anyone could convert me it s Ed Brubaker

    Yet another reboot of the Captain America franchise, a book you will most likely read in one sitting, for the 2 following reasons 1 the story is good, albeit with the by now overly familiar Brubaker touch of yet another hidden forgotten chapter in Steve Rogers life, this time with a hint of Christopher Nolan s Inception thrown in and 2 the book looks absolutely amazing in fact that is what elevates it to four stars.Check it out if you like, but I would advise not getting too drawn in to Yet another reboot of the Captain America franchise, a book you will most likely read in one sitting, for the 2 following reasons 1 the story is good, albeit with the by now overly familiar Brubaker touch of yet another hidden forgotten chapter in Steve Rogers life, this time with a hint of Christopher Nolan s Inception thrown in and 2 the book looks absolutely amazing in fact that is what elevates it to four stars.Check it out if you like, but I would advise not getting too drawn in to the story arc, because to date there have been no less than THREE subsequent reboots of the Captain America comic book series It s hard to keep up

    This new volume of Captain America is a chance for Ed Brubaker to get back to the brilliant work he was doing when he began writing about this character Brubaker s grasp of Cap is superb Captain America is a hero through and through, with a supporting cast to take care of moral complexity and vulnerability, and with a long history from which to draw for organic story ideas McNiven s art is beautiful, with great facial expressions and clean action scenes.The story here is that someone from Ca This new volume of Captain America is a chance for Ed Brubaker to get back to the brilliant work he was doing when he began writing about this character Brubaker s grasp of Cap is superb Captain America is a hero through and through, with a supporting cast to take care of moral complexity and vulnerability, and with a long history from which to draw for organic story ideas McNiven s art is beautiful, with great facial expressions and clean action scenes.The story here is that someone from Cap s past returns under mysterious circumstances, and Cap handles the punching and running while his friends do detective work This is exactly the structure I want in an Ed Brubaker Cap story, and it s great here The actual details of the story are a little implausible, but if a comic book is going to be derivative of the movie Inception, it may as well be a comic where the title character embodies the American Dream All of that worked for me, as did the revitalization of Hydra and the flashbacks to Cap s beloved 1940s This is accessible enough for a new reader, but I especially recommend it for fans of Brubaker s original run

    I thinkthe story was good, but I m having a problem with Captain America.Reading this guy is like dating a lady who s really not over her ex Everything is about the past.It s always, Um, by the way, I forgot to mention something or When will these ghosts from my tumultuous past stop haunting my present With the girlfriend, it s not stuff that s as exciting as a giant Captain America android wrecking up the city But still, at some point we need to start living in the present, making I thinkthe story was good, but I m having a problem with Captain America.Reading this guy is like dating a lady who s really not over her ex Everything is about the past.It s always, Um, by the way, I forgot to mention something or When will these ghosts from my tumultuous past stop haunting my present With the girlfriend, it s not stuff that s as exciting as a giant Captain America android wrecking up the city But still, at some point we need to start living in the present, making decisions about the present, wrapping up the past to a degree that we don t worry about what the hell is going to come up next and start worrying about being present

    Being out of comics for decades, this was recommended as a nice start to Captain America without going back to the Siler Age books In any event i enjoyed the introduction to this long story which as I understand goes through five volumes of omnibus which I plan on trying to find to read the remainder of the story arc.

    McNiven is a fine superhero comics artist The collaboration with Brubaker on this set of stories is quite good Still ends on a cliffhanger I had read these stories in individual issues and still enjoyed rereading them.Recommended.

    Captain America has always appealed to me because while he is a super hero, he s not Superman He s faster, stronger, smarter than the average person, but he s still human He doesn t fly around, and he s not invulnerable His stories have always had arealistic feel to them than some superheroes for that reason.However, Cap just isn t made for this type of story, at least in my opinion This is a really far out science fiction type tale, and while it was entertaining, it just didn t seem l Captain America has always appealed to me because while he is a super hero, he s not Superman He s faster, stronger, smarter than the average person, but he s still human He doesn t fly around, and he s not invulnerable His stories have always had arealistic feel to them than some superheroes for that reason.However, Cap just isn t made for this type of story, at least in my opinion This is a really far out science fiction type tale, and while it was entertaining, it just didn t seem like a Captain America story to me The story is very well done, and they did a good job of fitting it into the Cap universe so to speak, but still, it was just not Captain America To be fair, he has had some very far out stories in the past such as the Cosmic Cube, Infinity Gauntlet, etc and those stories worked well, but something about this one just felt a little off to me The art from Steven Niven was great, so no problem there And the story itself wasn t bad, it was well written, I just didn t think the premise fit Cap very well I m sure some loved the story, just wasn t for me I would still recommend it for any die hard Captain America fan because it s not terrible, and if you like heavy sci fi in your comics, this may be the story for you even if you aren t a huge Cap fan
