    Reviews - Captain America - TPB vol. 01

View this issue

Breathes new life into an aging character - Thai
Contains Spoilers.
Captain America is first & for most a soldier rather then costumed super Hero and itís nice that the start of this series explores this as this trade is more orientated around terrorism and espionage which is something Cap would certainly be involved in, more so then costumed villainy.
Donít get me wrong the Red Skull is hereÖ..for all of one issue as he is assassinated by un unknown assailant (More on that later) this is the key element of the plot although the are many different elements to this story and it seems like this is but the first part of an epic chapter in this series run.

Regarding the sniper who carries out the assassination I must say I was a little worried when Sharon Carter mentions that she thought the sniper looked like Bucky.
Hopefully this will not be the case, it looks like we already have the return of Jason Todd in the pages of Bat-Man and if this did indeed turn out to be Bucky I will be disappointed, although there is a lot more reason why this would be justified then Jasonís Toddís return due to the nature of Buckyís death being more open ended.
Comics are renowned for bringing people back from the dead but you was always guaranteed that no one stays dead other then Bucky & Robin but now just maybe that saying my well be redundant, hereís hoping not because other then this little bit of insecurity on my part this book is outstanding.
Steve Eptingís art is very dark & moody but fitís the tone magnificently and are one of the many plus points of this first tradeís in the series.
Some of his full page spreads are truly magnificent and really add to the atmosphere of the book.
Obviously Brubaker deserves the most credit here and Iíll go as far to say that If Brubakerís story continues like this then it may well spark of some interest in a character well passed there sell by date which frankly Captain America is so if you have any doubt in the character whatsoever it may well be worth giving the character one last try as I doubt youíll be disappointed.

Outstanding
8.6 Out of Ten
