Funny thing: Ed Brubaker's all-ages comix read more mature than his "adult" work. Deprived of all his T&A and F-bombs, he's forced to concentrate on basics such as plot, dialog and character development, and he shows himself quite capable of solid thriller writing. In "Winter Soldier," Cap dives headlong into a terrorist gang war as he investigates the assassination of his archfoe, the Red Skull (formerly "Hitler's strong right hand"), a case with roots reaching back to Cap's time as an Invader in WWII. One might wish Steve Epting's art was more than simply functional, but at the same time, his people look refreshingly like people. No roided-out beefcake or pneumatic bimbos. Not every comic book character needs to be deconstructed and reinvented as edgy and psychologically tortured. Sometimes a writer just needs to play to a hero's core strengths, what made him special to begin with, and that's what Brubaker does here. It's expertly done escapism, and for some reason, that's getting rare in superhero comix these days. Up til now, my reactions to Brubaker's work have ranged from disinterest to disdain. This is the first series from him that makes me want to pick up Volume 2 and find out what happens next.

I had bailed out on the comic scene for good following High School, although I continued to pick up Jeff Smith's "Bone", since I knew it was a finite series, so I wouldn't have to be chained to it forever. Well, the day came and the series ended, and quite frankly, I missed my bi-monthly excursions to the comic shop. I missed the smell of paper. I even dreamed about it.

So I was on my Honeymoon in the frozen north when I stopped into a Supermarket and happened to glance at issue #1 of Captain America written by Ed Brubaker. I've never been a fan of Cap or his Avenger buddies. Just a bunch of Government tools. But this issue rocked. The art was really great and when I sat down and read it I found a story I could really dig to. So I was hooked, and I count each new issue as another month of marriage. Since then, I've also opened the door to Ed Brubaker's Daredevil too. Daredevil was my favorite growing up, so I'm glad to have him back in my life.

Writing and art are equally sublime. The perfect creative team. The story is fresh and up to date. Flashbacks to WWII were an added thrill. Real gritty storytelling. This Ed Brubaker knows what he's doing.

I'm with this book for the long haul, and I am grateful to know that each month I have this marvelous little treat to look forward to. EXCELSIOR!

Format: Hardcover
This book is, bar none, the best Captain America book in a long while. Plot twists aside, if you have ever thought about picking up Captain America, or coming back to Captain America this book is for you. Brubaker weaves a twisting tail of corruption and espionage on par with Clancy that is very much rooted in the history and mythos of the Marvel Universe reaching back into World War II. You would enjoy this book if you are fan of comics or a fan of TV shows such as 24 or Band of Brothers or anything written by Clancy. Its also a great jumping on point for new comic readers who may be curious about Captain America, SHEILD, Hydra or AIM and the dark corner of the Marvel Universe in which they operate!

Great story that keeps you guessing and pays off. If you plan to see the movie read the book first.

A great comic collection. As someone new to solo Cap stories this served as a great jumping on point, it had interesting story that built on Steve Rogers' history but explained thing well enough that a newbie like me was able to follow. It had some good characters, well written dialouge, and nice art. Looking forward to reading Vol. 2.

Issues 1 to 7 of Captain America is collected in this graphic novel collection. The past seems to be coming back to haunt Captain America. He keeps having flashes of memory that may or may not be true. A mysterious killer is stalking his old enemies and friends, including both the Red Skull and Jack Monroe (Nomad).

While the story is not bad, it also doesn't feel complete. I guess this shouldn't come as a surprise since it is just part of an ongoing monthly series. The problem is that it isn't even a full arc in that series. In fact, it feels more like background for the real story to come. So while it is needed to be read, it also leaves you feeling unsatisfied as well.

The artwork also seems to be off somehow. It is like the artists are not comfortably drawing Captain America unless he is wearing the mask. At other times, it seems as official features are focused upon but then are slapped onto a generic head. This causes the artwork to have a flat look.

So I would say this is a decent part of your comic book collection with the death of a couple of characters and the setup for another. Just don't expect it to be one of your favorites.

The writing and art in this story are excellent. I was reading Captain America for decades and was delighted by this turn. I had to buy the digital copy because my trade paperback was starting to fall apart.

A lot of back story that is needed to understand what is going on. Heading to store now to get next book.
