Brubaker takes the trope of Cap as 'man out of time' and works it masterfully, allowing longtime readers like myself to learn something new about the greatest Avenger. By taking us through memories of World War II, we learn about how Steve Rogers, just an eighteen year-old recruit became the leader he is seen as today, and we learn much more about who and what Bucky was to Cap's missions in Europe.

Brilliant storytelling by Brubaker is elevated by Epting's art, who brings grittiness and shadows to the world of Captain America, while keeping the heroism of his iconic appearance intact. This storyline would be great with Brubake and any other artist; Epting's work makes it incredible.
