Through osmosis, and the movies, I know a bit about CA, but though I enjoyed those movies, it still didn't strike me to pick up the books until I was looking for more Brubaker. I am pleased to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this collection - the story is taut, dramatic and moves at a good clip while providing a great deal of back story that allowed a reader, coming to the character in the books for the first time, to find footing. It is well plotted, has interesting dialog and some genuine heart to it. The artwork is dynamic and expressive and if not particularly innovative or distinctive, it is certainly more than simply functional - it fits the story very well.
I am now on for the ride and moving on to Vol 2 (Red Menace) and will stay on board until it wanes or ends. Not great, maybe, but certainly very good.
After the third installment of captain America lives, I expected the series to begin to wane, but the story certainly begins to pick up the pace. The writing is solid throughout and the art is pretty decent; at first I found the art to be inconsistent, from modern to cartoony to gritty, seemingly swapping around at random, but as the story goes on the art is very situationally appropriate, especially the gulag issues. The story is great, nothing less than what you would expect from brubaker; great character development and this portion of the run does tend to develop more of the supporting cast and the relationship between Rogers and Barnes.
It is well put together omnibus, with the arcs placed well in between eachother. The sewn binding provides the resiliency you would expect from a marvel omnibus. My only gripe is im not a fan of the cover art. If you were discouraged from the previous omnibus, then this one can revive your hope in the series. This is great omnibus and definitely worth your time and money if you're a Cap and winter soldier fan.
As far as extras, there are a few pages at the end of variant covers, sketches, and also Ed Brubaker's original proposal of Captain America's plot which got him the writing job.
