This comic completely retconned the rebirth of Captain America into the main Marvel universe. Completely changing the story and giving us a brand-new look at what really happened when he thawed out in a brick of ice.

The art was new and different and the story was very engaging.

This was pretty good, but it was over very quickly; I read it over my lunch break at work. The basic plot is that Captain America receives a mysterious package with some old films and documents. The materials make him question his old memories as well as his own sense of duty and morals. Are his memories true, or are they illusions? This is what he needs to find out. Once the story gets going, it does so at a pretty quick pace. The art is dark, which matches the mood of the story. It does feel a ...more

MY first foray into comics. As such, I really have nothing to compare it to, so I'll just go on what I thought of it. Knowing the basic story of the character and having picked this series at random, I was surprised but also intrigued to find out it is a retcon of his disappearance and re-emergence. Like others, I found it very short and somewhat unsatisfying leaving so many questions unanswered. However, the artwork was great and fit the dark overcast mood of the story. The story was quick to ...more

Jae Lee's art can earn anything at least 4 stars in my opinion. But this book had the benefit of some surprisingly good writing.

Cap America's Black and White righteous morality gets old quick, and this book, (though full of the same) questions it.

I found that satisfying.

I also found the honest look at the American governments' hypocritical and diabolical the-ends-justify-the-means attitude, accurately portrayed.
Cap represents IDEALS, that he stands up for and fights for that are above and beyond

There was a lot going on in this story that I felt was off kilter. I felt that the writing was either lazy, bad or complicated and whatever it was threw me out of the story through each issue. The inclining in the back of my head was right and it all came together in the end but the problem was that I was moving through the story to confirm what I thought was going on. If anything, the art (which I felt was too dark/awkward for Captain America) is a good indicator for what this story is trying ...more

Although the narrative is not as tightly or smoothly written as Morrison’s writing on Fantastic Four 1234, this hallucinatory tale is, as usual, beautifully rendered by the inimitable Lee. It also immediately precedes Ed Brubaker and Steve Eptings awarding-winning current run on the title. So although it falls short in the narrative department compared to those two, it’s still work a quick afternoon read, as you soak up Lee’s beautiful pen-and-inks. (And let’s not forget those stunning John ...more

Not being a Captain America fan, I figured it would take a lot for me to appreciate it. Though really it just takes an okay concept written well with good enough art. And this one definitely has all that. Steve Rogers is a pretty straight-laced super honest moral dude - this story is all about challenging that - trying to figure out if there is a way to get him to cross the line and kill someone, anyone. It is a part of Marvel Knights, which is hypothetically a name of quality - sort of the way ...more
