Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this fine book collecting the first seven issues of the latest Captain America series, long-time villain Red Skull resurfaces with a plan to bomb major cities and use the energy created by the destruction to power a new reality-altering Cosmic Cube. But the plan goes awry when the Skull is killed and the Cube stolen. While Captain investigates with the help of Sharon Carter-his ex-girlfriend, now his liaison with U.N. peacekeeping agency S.H.I.E.L.D.-and S.H.I.E.L.D. head Nick Fury, he has visions of the past that may be repressed memories coming to light, or false memories planted using the Cube. The excellent, dark-edged action thriller script by Brubaker, an Eisner and Harvey Award nominee for work on DC's Batman titles, makes good use of Captain America's established history while adding intelligent modifications to it. Epting's (El Cazador) artwork is strongly realistic; World War II flashback sequences, drawn by Michael Lark, are effectively presented in black and white. The story continues in Volume 2. Strongly recommended for all teen and adult superhero fans.-S.R. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Marvel has maintained through the years that the two characters they would never resurrect are Uncle Ben and Bucky. Well leave it to Ed Brubaker to change their minds. Fantastic story! Will go down as one of Marvel's classics of all time.

This is the first Captain America comic I've ever purchased and I really like it. The story gives us insight into who Captain America really is as a person and the life he's trying to adapt to living. The story is very interesting and the artwork is great. I'll definitely be purchasing the next volume.

So Bucky didn't die, the Soviets were able to make him into their super assassin. Sounds like a story that would crash and burn but not this one. Outside the Marvel Civil War this has been one of my favorite reads. The story is amazing, if Bucky had to be brought to life this is the way to do it.

I'm new to comic books, and this is the second collection that I bought after Avengers Disassembled. I read it all in one sitting and I'm hooked. Highly recommend.

Fabulous read. The artwork was just right for the story it was telling, the pace was great, and to me it's the perfect kind of story that Captain America should be involved in.

Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting capture everything that makes Captain America great!! This trade really gets the ball rolling into one of the best superhero epics ever. My only complaint is with the art in the 7th chapter by John Leon, as its such a departure from Epting's work it seems drastically out of place. Other than that, its hard to tell a better story.

Lacks insanity of umbrella academy the moral ratifications of uncanny xforce, the fun of astonishing xmen, and the humor of nextwave. 2d character development
