The artwork of Steve Epting and Mike Perkins is also phenomenal, and sets the perfect tone and mood for Brubaker's stories.

Daredevil is one such, Captain America is another, and it's awesome that my man Ed Brubaker is writing both.

Recently, Ed Brubaker's "Death of Captain America" story made national headlines (on a slow news day) for killing the American icon, and there was a major spike of interest in the the series. Many people suddenly found themselves aware, momentarily, of what has been Marvel's best ongoing series for the past three years.

Ed Brubaker took over with the relaunch of volume 5 of Captain America's title, part of the linewide revamp of the Avengers titles post-"Avengers Disassembled." The most consistent artists have been Steve Epting and Mike Perkins, who art is scarily similar, with smaller contributions by such names as Michael Lark (who would go on to work with Brubaker on Daredevil). The focus is on Captain America as a secret agent in the world of international espionage, joined by SHIELD Agent 13/Sharon Carter (his initially-ex-girlfriend), SHIELD Director Nick Fury, and eventually his partner the Falcon/Sam Wilson. But the biggest initial jolts come with the seeming assassination of the Red Skull, and the return to life of Cap's dead sidekick Bucky, now a brainwashed Soviet assassin. Over the 25 issues (and two specials) that make up this run, Brubaker sticks with one consistent story, in multiple variations:

"Out of Time" - the opening six issue arc; until "The Death of the Dream", it was the finest part of the series; Brubaker builds to the big revelation, but, even knowing it, it is still a riveting read. By the end of it, you know everything you need to know about Captain America.

"The Winter Soldier" - the following arc, for me, the weakest part of the series, but still incredibly good.

"Collision Courses" - Cap and Sharon go up against Sin and Crossbones in the American heartland.

*WARNING* spoilers immediately ahead

This is the first 25 issues of Ed Brubaker and Steve Eptings awe-inspiring run on the new "Captain America"--from the attempted assassination of the Red Skull and reintroduction of "Bucky" Barnes as the Winter Soldier to the highly publicized death of Steve Rogers.

I'll say that aside from Mark Millar's Ultimates run, Ed Brubaker writes Cap better than anyone. He nails the character and his supporting cast, and Brubaker's storylines feel truly authentic to America's second super-soldier. Equally impressive is the consistantly beautiful art by Steve Epting and Mike Perkins. I've never seen a book where the regular art and the fill-ins were this indistinguishable. Amazing.

This is the best superhero comic MARVEL currently puts out. It's a must own for for any comics fan. Buy it NOW!

I was never a fan of Captain America, but with all the attention that surrounded the death of the character, as well as the critical acclaim given to Ed Brubaker's run on the title, I took a chance and picked up this omnibus.

What did I think? It was fantastic! Brubaker's take on Cap is both refreshing and familiar at the same time. He deftly satisfies old time fans and draws in newcomers with a careful balance of character history interwoven throughout the stories in the omnibus.

The dialogue is thoroughly enjoyable to read and the plots are original, creative, and perfectly suited for Captain America. With a mixture of intrigue, drama, politics, twists, technology, and downright superhero action, the Captain America Omnibus is sure to satisfy a comic enthusiast who has never even picked up a Captain America comic before.

The artwork of Steve Epting and Mike Perkins is also phenomenal, and sets the perfect tone and mood for Brubaker's stories. While the price of the book is a bit expensive, Amazon cuts the reader a great price break, and I believe that the book is well worth it!

Post-WWII Captain America to me has always been like a joke. Sorta that man-out-of-time story that seems more like a bad long-running gag than a character anyone would take seriously....that is until Ed Brubaker started writing him.

These first 25 issues (plus the excellent one-shots: Winter Kills and 65th anniversay) are the very best Captain America (if not best superhero)stories I've ever read! Cap finally is looked at as a flawed human being who's trying to get a grip on modern reality and at the same time trying to defend his belief in the world. The stories also take on kind of a spy-thriller tone (a lot going on behind the scenes as much as up front) giving the superhero action the energy of a Daniel Silva novel.

Along with the stories, this omnibus collects a satisfying amount of news articles and interviews with the people behind this fantastic comic. I usually don't care about 'extras' in comic collections but I found the 'makings-of/reactions to' this comic almost as fascinating as the comic itself.

I honestly can't say enough great things about this collection. If you're a fan of the superhero genre (or maybe a Sleeper fan: another superhero/spy series by Ed Brubaker): BUY IT! It seems like alot of money but you seriously get your $$ worth.

The number one, best comic books ever in my opinion is the Watchmen #1-12.

The number two, best comic books ever in my opinion is Captain America #1-25 and all the other extra issues they have in here. I've read this Omnibus like 3 times since I got it... last Christmas or the Christmas before I forget. It's really that great.
