  1. I’ve been reading Cap since basically Brubaker started writing it, but the magic of it has been gone for me since the renumbering. I finally decided to take it off my LCS pull-list after the last issue, but I’m going to flip through this in the store just to make sure. It’s not a terrible book, but it just doesn’t do it for me any more and it was a hard decision to drop.

    I think the main problem is Brubaker is spread to thin over the three Cap books and it’s almost as if the aspects that made it great originally is spread over these three books. The classic Cap feeling is here, the great history material is in Cap & Bucky, and the espionage aspects are in Winter Soldier. None of these books were bad, but I would but them all if they were combined into just one book like we had before.

    • I get what your saying about the classic Cap feel in this book minus the espionage stuff, but I think it’s switching back to the Cap were all used to in the next Arc, which has Cap trying to track down someone who’s killing villains who are in witness protection.

    • My theory is hat Brubaker does not actually like writing Steve Rogers cap. All his best work revolves around Bucky if you look back- so I reall think that this book reflects his lack of enthusiasm for the character.

    Personally I think the Davis/Farmer art is doing justice to the “classic feel” you mention. I’m loving this arc.

  3. I love Alan Davis’ art on this arc, too. Brubaker is off Cap & Bucky completely after next issue so once it switches to a Brave & Bold style Cap & Guest Star of the Month, it’ll be a different writer. That leaves him with Cap, Winter Soldier, Fatale, and whatever else Marvel throws at him after AvX is over.

  4. I can’t wait till we get a Cap and Winter Solider teamup story!
    Cap will do the shield throwing.
    Bucky will do the shooting.

  5. This is a fun Captain America title.

    I read it the day that it shows up in the mailbox.

    I’m hoping to see Guice, Lark, Epting, Kitson, Eaglesham, Edwards, Grummet, Caselli, Francavilla, Samnee and Palo on this title, during its long and healthy run.

    A Tom Fowler arc would be especially nice.

    Maybe some Mike Del Mundo covers…

    Steve McNiven and Alan Davis both have done really nice work on their respective arcs.

    It’s one of my favorite titles right now.

  6. It’s a decent book but it’s nothing special and isn’t worth that extra dollar.

  7. This was so awesome! I love Alan Davis drawing Sharon Carter and this issue is just a feast for that reason. This issue should be the textbook for how to make strong female superhero characters sexy and smart without resorting to a lot of TnA shots. I loved how her hair was all mussed at the end and she looked exhausted. She reminded me of Olivia Dunham from Fringe in this issue and that’s a major compliment.

    When is Sharon Carter getting her own book or at least a mini??? Let Brubaker write it please. And y’know, Alan Davis drawing it would be cool, too!
