Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’ll admit, while the art in the last issue was a real treat, if a cut needs to be made to my pull list this one is on the block.

    Dammit, but I love Chris Samnee so!

  2. The Brubaker story has been solid so far and the Samnee art fantastic. I think I will commit to getting the 5 issues of this origin story. I am not sure where it supposed to go past there, but by then I will have only one Cap comic at most.

  3. After last week I have decided that this is the stronger of the 2 brubaker cap books out there. Add to that the fact that it’s cheaper and has Samnee on art. I am curious as to the long-term plan of this book though.

  4. You know, its taken me about 4 or 5 issues of his work, but I gotta say that I have finally learned to LOVE Samnee’s work. Its just…I dont even know, but the expressiveness is great. Love it.

  5. Wow. Wow wow wow. I take it back. If the quality is this high throughout, I’m in ’till the wheels fall off.


  6. This is a great comic. It’s just too bad they don’t have a beautiful Samnee cover to match those beautiful Samnee interiors.

  7. this book is awesome.

  8. I wouldn’t think I’d like this book, but I do. The Cap/Bucky interactions are great and feel fresh.
