  1. Will try this out, since it’s Francesco Francavilla on art.

    • Yeah me too I might check it out… I love Francavilla’s art and I watched Captain America again this weekend and I’m like psyched about it. 2.99$… meh why not!?

    • Yeah I saw the movie too this weekend. Hadn’t seen it before and hardly knew anything about Cap and Bucky, but it was pretty good. The solicitation could well be a continuation from the movie, since it’s in the present? We’ll see…

    • Yep, I’m jumping aboard because of Francavilla’s art, too. I’m not normally a Captain America reader, but this was really cool and from what I could tell it seemed to be a good jumping on point for me, as a somewhat new reader.

  2. The previous arc w/ Samnee was really cool, and gorgeous to look at. I am even more excited for this now that Francesco is on board. Also, I’m glad this and Daredevil are 2.99, otherwise I would have missed out on these awesome books.


    Haha, typos are hilarious

  4. Will jump on this one, to see if it’s any good. I’m not a big fan of Cap or Bucky, but I might as well check out what all the fuzz is about… also, Francavilla’s art cannot possibly disappoint.

  5. You all should have already been reading this. Waaaay better than the cap book and Samnee on art. It has been one amazing wwII story after another.

  6. I have been enjoying both Cap books, but this one is far, far better. Can’t wait to see what Francavilla does.

  7. Francavilla!

    Very excited.

  8. Yes! I’m probably looking forward to this book more than any other this week. Francavilla bringing the pulpy goodness to this series was probably the smartest move they made after Samnee’s great run.

  9. Great setup to a mystery. Lots of fun twists, some good support characters introduced and a very compelling final page. Top quality comics.

  10. this book continues to amaze. Clear pick of the week this week.

  11. I flipped through it at the store, but it seems to feature faux Cap and Bucky in the 1950’s, NOT Cap and Bucky (the real ones).

    If that’s the case I’m not too interested.

    Any (minor) spoilers to help persuade me to spend $3 are appreciated. 🙂

    I’d hate to miss a good comic.

  12. Now that we’re starting a second arc on this title, it becomes obvious that one of its key elements is the re-examination of Cap’s long history. Since a Cap title will always have some element of nostalgia because his past is so important to who he is, this one does the sensible thing and keeps bringing us untold tales from his timeline. This one is about the faux Cap & Bucky post WWII, but there’s plenty of current day Rogers too and I get the feeling that alot of the rest of the arc will take place present day, albeit featuring characters that were also alive back in the day.

    Francavilla was the perfect replacement for Samnee.
