Heading to store now to get next book.
Shawn Corr
A must read for any Cap fan and Hollywood should take note, to make great comic book movies you should USE great comic book writers.
Troy A. Green
The story reads very well with all the villains and supporting characters being particularly well-fleshed out.

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.

Format: Paperback
I was never ever really into Cap America. Even though I admired Kirby's work on most other characters, his Cap and Bucky characters were never that interesting, as they only fought Nazis and appeared to be stuck in a time warp. Even when they revived Cap for the Avengers, his shield throwing antics, gymnastics and age were rather too patronisizing, and he was always referred to as the living legend.

Imagine my very pleasant surprise when I first picked up this book. The brooding plot and setup was excellent, and artwork was largely terrific. Contemporary events are welded into a fine story. The story reads very well with all the villains and supporting characters being particularly well-fleshed out. Cap is best when he is not portrayed in fighting form, and Brubaker seems to have realised this. The book reads like a very taut thriller and Bucky is likely to make a comeback. The last story on Jack Monroe, alias the Nomad, was not well-drawn but is the best story in this volume. I have decided to give this a 5 star for overall sheer pacing.

This is the first Captain America comic I've checked out and I'm thoroughly impressed. This is awesome. It's a great place for any new reader to start on Cap and it gives you a different image of the characters than you've usually seen. It's a great combo of espionage, politics, war, romance, and traditional comic cook thrills. The revelations about Bucky in particular grabbed me very strongly. I expected Cap to be more jingoistic but I was pleasantly surprised at how real and well-developed the character is. This is thanks to Ed Brubaker's great writing and deep understanding and love for this character. Steve Epting's art is terrific, combining the iconic nature of the character with a more realistic style. When you think of Cap in your head, Epting's art is what you'll see.

If you've ever been interested in Captain America at all, this is where to start.
