  1. Will skip #5 and go straight to 6 solely for the Alan Davis art

  2. I told myself I was going to stop getting Cap after McNiven finished. Since they’ve decided to ship both #5 and #6 in the same week… I’m gonna find it hard not to buy both!

  3. ALAN DAVIS! clap5x ALAN DAVIS! clap5x

  4. I subscribed to this title direct from Marvel. I can’t wait to get two issues in one week. A fun read.

  5. Bah first time I went to the store before doing my pull list and I see they double shipped Cap. I thought this must have been an alternate cover in the store not number 6.

  6. Is this the start of a new arc? If thats the case i will most likely drop the series with this issue. The story is okay but not great, i’m not a big fan of Davis (shame on me, i know…) and on top of that its 3,99.

  7. Has this ever happened before, two sequential issues come out the same day?

  8. See, this is what they were going for, I think. Old school Cap adventures, a little silly, a little out there, but mostly fun spy stuff, and this definitely delivered.

  9. He got mentioned, but I was hoping for the return of Machinesmith. Sadly, that’s not what we got.

  10. Much like Bendis leaving Avengers, I think it’s time for Brubaker to move on and get a fresh face on Cap. Greg Rucka anyone?

  11. I was hoping to start reading this series with this issue, but it seems like it would be better to have read 1 through 5 first. So I think I will be trade-waiting this series.

    (Though issues 1 through 5 are still on the racks at some of the stores where I shop…)

  12. And yeah- $3.99 a pop is a drag. 🙁

  13. I’m guessing that the new feel of the mainline Cap title is due to corporate & editorial mandate. It make the most financial sense to open up the character to the new readers who are coming on board thanks to the movie. Before the renumbering coinciding with the release of the film, Cap’s storyline & art was darker and grittier and not new reader friendly due the long arcs and playing out of consequences of much earlier events in Brubaker’s run. Now we have a brighter more action oriented Cap kicking ass and most importantly Steve is Cap again, so no confusion for new readers about why Bucky is wearing the uniform. The previous continuity hasn’t been jettisoned, but face it this title had a soft reboot when it went back to number 1 again. Winter Soldier is going to be what you want to read if you want the ‘old’ Cap vibe back.
