Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I expect things to really pick up here.

  2. Doom and Red Skull drawn by Hitch in one comic?  Sold!

  3. This is going to be the make-or-break issue of this mini for me. I was let down with the first two, but there’s still time for this to be a gem. The promise of Doom and Red Skull is cool, but I fear I can only be let down.

  4. hell yeah

  5. I’m not entirely sure why this isn’t happening in the main Cap book. It seems odd to release a mini when they’re putting the main book on hold until the end of this story.

  6. @reg5000 Marketing is really the only answer. Cap #25 got news coverage and such, Cap Reborn didn’t as much, but it’s easy to say look for this NEW ISSUE rather than #53, whoops I mean #603, of this series. I agree it’s silly, but there it is.

  7. I’m very curious to see where this series goes.  If Steve follows his history all the way forward to the events in #25, it will be interesting to see if he let’s nature take it’s course as has been the trend thus far.  If that were the case, Bucky remains the new Cap, Steve jumps back to WWII and Marvel could keep going back and telling old Cap stories (not that a special plot device is really be needed for that). 

     I’m sure Brubaker has a plan.  I just hope it’s a good one. 

  8. if history tells us one thing, it’s that Brubaker always has a plan

  9. Come on, fellas, the second issue was pretty good. Give it a chance

  10. Sweet Cover as usual. "Dr Doom and the Red Skull together again!" Is anyone else as disturbed by this sentence as I am? Were they lovers? What a couple!

  11. Issue 2 was good, just not $3.99 good. For me anyway. *shrugs* Oh well. Dropped.

  12. *sings*

    Together again for the first time! We’ve only met in a dream!

  13. i hope this picks up…

  14. should this comic be 3.99? I don’t know.

  15. I might read this if it wasn’t 3.99.

  16. Ohhhhh shit, that final page…

  17. I almost picked this up in the store after offically droping it.  I had it in my hands looked at the cover and realized I have just stopped caring about these characters all of a sudden and I don’t know why.

  18. How was Doom and Red Skull together again when Doom wasn’t in the issue at all??? Great issue though, and give me more double page spreads of Namor! I’m also intrigued into what Steve told the Vision

  19. Wow – the first two issues really had me down on this mini, but this issue really ratcheted up everything a whole notch.  Really dug it.

  20. Best issue so far, looking forward to the next two.

  21. Yeah, I was iffy on this series before, but now I’m in it to win it. (whatever that means)

  22. HELL YES! That was one helluva comic! Eric O’Grady you’re my hero.

  23. To those complaining about the price, every issue has been 27 pages.

  24. The story in this was excellent.

    I am really having a hard time figuring out what stuff is by Hitch and what’s by Guic. Normally, I wouldn’t be so concerned over it, but it means that either Hitch only drew that 1st image of Cap in the ice or he and Guice decided to just stop being talented immediately after that page. The art is the one thing holding this book back and it’s been the case for every issue for me. This would’ve been a 5 star series in my mind on every issue were it not for the art being so muddled and disproportionate. Everyone has weird, tiny legs that can apparently reach knee to shoulder with ease!

  25. It’s both.  Apparently this is hard to accept for some people but Hitch is drawing all of the pages and Guice is inking them.  Ed Brubaker has confirmed as much.

  26. For some reason, just having his first name be different on the listing up made me not realize that. I tend not to look at who the inker is, I admit.
    It’s also probably because they list Guice on the cover and whatnot. So, to me that just means that Hitch goes off the rails in about a page or two per issue. I gotta go back and read Ultimates to see if I feel the same about that (I read it early on, before developing a better sense of what I like in comics).

  27. This art is clearly all penciled by Hitch with inks by Guice.

  28. Why is Namor a Vampire on that splash page!? Is he selling me chocolate cereal? This just isn’t doing anything for me. I’m familiar with all the plot points and characters but it feels flaccid. There doesn’t seem to be any heart in this, it’s very perfunctory. If I wasn’t a fan of Brubaker’s run on the main title, I would drop this instantly. 3/5 for me.

    @captbastard In general the inker is usually listed on the cover when there are three names. 

  29. By far the best issue of the series. The art was incredible adn the writing was on point. 5/5.

  30. Fantastic issue and the story has finally picked up. I’m really excited to see what is going to happen in the future of Captain America…

  31. @PraxJarvin
    I’m more used to seeing only two names for writer & penciller or the names the entire team. When I see three, it often indicates a secondary writer or pencilller. To me at least, the art varied from pretty good to… let’s just call it "not" for the whole of this series thus far, so I was unsure if it was the work of two people or one person with sporadic bouts of the shaky hands (I’m gonna feel so bad if it turns out Hitch has a medical condition after just saying that).

  32. Yawn

  33. This was a great issue. My favortie of the mini so far.

  34. excellent issue.  the art is to die for.  seeing a new wrinkle in the kree-skrull war worked and seeing Clint Barton in that awful old Goliath outfit was a real treat.  I can’t wait for the conclusion to this story and want to see how it affects the Captain America ongoing story.

  35. Best issue of the 3.  Namor and Falcon?  You had me at hello.

  36. This issue blew the other two out of th water. I’m excited to see how Doom gets involved.

  37. I don’t want Steve back yet. I want more Bucky Cap stories.
