Hey Jeff! Wasn’t Sidekick week three weeks ago? Bite me!Captain America Status: (view spoiler)[He’s still dead, Jim! (hide spoiler)]Remember when you were a little kid and one of the tests to measure your cognitive ability was putting pictures from a story in the proper order? Well, I was never very good at that, which was why I ended up with the paste eaters. Flash forward today and I’m reading Brubaker’s epic Captain America saga out of order and trying to make a lick of sense where th [...]
In the aftermath of the Civil War, Captain America is gunned down on the courthouse steps minutes before he was going to be arraigned. Now Bucky, the Winter Soldier, is gunning for Tony Stark and his first objective is claiming Captain America's shieldFirst off, I went on a hiatus from buying Marvel Comics around the time Civil War hit because it wreaked of hype and things that would be undone at the first opportunity, like Spider-Man revealing his identity and Captain America being killed. Look [...]
So my neighbor asks if he can borrow a couple of my comic books.Still don't have them back, by the wayIn return he offers me this, and says, 'It's a collector's item.'Inwardly, I laughed.There are three kinds of comic book collectors.1) Real collectors with stuff like the original Superman in mint condition.2) Fans who collect the books because they love to read them.3) Douches who assume they will be worth money later.Guess which one my guy isAnyhoo, I'd already read this collector's item from [...]
I love that this comic has no bullshit buildup to the death of Captain America. That build-up was the entirety of the Civil War storyline, so when The Death of Captain America kicks off Tony Stark is now the head of SHIELD (mostly successful in imposing the Superpower Registration Act), Captain America has surrendered his rebellious self to end the bloodshed (novel concept that the America icon willing to surrender himself to save innocent lives rather than seeking revenge and "victory" at all [...]
At the conclusion to Marvel Civil War, Captain America surrender to Tony's forces. As he heads to trial, Cap is murdered.In the aftermath of Captain America's death, the whole world seemingly reacts in its own way. Bucky, Falcon, and Sharon Carter react by trying to find out who killed Cap.How do I put this nicely? I find comic book Captain America boring. He's all good guy, by the book, and seemingly everyone's friend, if he were real I'd probably love him. As a comic book character he and his [...]
“Captain America #25 which depicted Steve Roger's death was the highest selling comic of March 2007 with preorder sales of 290,514 which was double the sales of the Mighty Avengers #1 in the same period. The Death of Captain America was reported in ABC News, where Bryan Robinsons paralleled the events to the Post-September 11 World and Iraq.” (Wiki)This graphic novel covers the death of Captain America and the fallout from that tragedy. It's no easy task for Cap's sidekick, Bucky, to p [...]
I couldn't get myself really interested in this. Even in my comic book obsessed days as a pre-teenager I never really understood Captain America. He had a shield and he was kind of a dick, and out of all the Avengers he seemed the most useless (which is saying something because I didn't think too highly of many of the mid-1980's Avengers). Now he's dead, someone called the Red Skull killed him, another Marvel character I never quite understood, but apparently he's now a pretty evil force to be r [...]
I might have had a bigger emotional reaction to Steve's death if I hadn't been reading this book in 2014 (view spoiler)[when I know damn good and well he isn't dead now (hide spoiler)]. But that doesn't change the fact that it's really, really well-written. Look, I know where this is going. I think we all do at this point. But Brubaker is good enough that I can still get swept up in a story that I already know the outcome to. Pretty impressive. That's mostly down to the characters in the lead, S [...]
Okay, I'm going to be hypocritical here. In my reviews of Captain America: Winter Soldier, Volume 1 and Civil War: Captain America, I criticized the writers for focusing too much on the supporting characters and not enough on Cap, but this six-issue volume only features Cap in the first pages of one issue in the scene he dies, and it is the strongest of all the Captain America books I've read. Agent 13, Falcon, Bucky Barnes, Nick Fury, and Iron Man were all in top form here. This book ties a lot [...]
While I'm usually not a fan of the comic industry's habit of 'killing' a major character to boost sales, this story and it's follow-up have actually worked. Set against the finale of Marvel's Civil War storyline, anyone who ever enjoyed a Captain America comic couldn't help but get choked up at his death. As long as Marvel keeps going with the 'new' Captain America and lets Steve Rogers remain dead, this story should be considered a classic. If they just bring back the original in a year or two, [...]
The Red Skull's Machinations continue while everyone else is shaken up over Cap's death. Admittedly less action packed than previous arcs, although I can never be bored by Steve Epting; something about his art is just so interesting to experience.Winter Soldier is also one of the coolest characters in recent memory, so any Bucky narration is always juicy and welcome.Onward!
Death is a rather common thing in comic books, but when it happens to a character of as much prominence as Captain America, even people largely unfamiliar with comic books take notice. When this story was first told, multiple news sources reported on it and to this day you can see a replica of Steve's shield hung on the wall of the studio of The Colbert Report. It's interesting then, that Steve Rodgers' death affected the real world in much the same way that his death affected the fictional worl [...]
After the civil war, superheroes now have to register, and Cap is brought in as an example. On the steps of the courthouse he is shot by a sniper. Fury doesn't trust SHIELD, Bucky is off on his own mission to hunt down the sniper, aided by Falcon and Sharon Carter. While most of them blame Tony Stark for his role in forcing Cap to register, he has his own suspicions and sends Black Widow to do some spying. So many conspiracies and plot threads and this ends on a CLIFFHANGER! I had thought this w [...]
I'm not going to try to convince anyone to read this, the first issue in this (#25) is essential after all. Afterwards we're dealing with Winter Soldier on a vendetta, searching for the sniper, with intentions of going after Tony Stark sooner or later. Agent 13 dealing with her inner turmoil and teaming with Falcon who are after Crossbones and Sin. Black Widow appears and is after Winter Soldier. Meanwhile Red Skull continues working behind the scenes toward whatever ultimate plan he has.Overall [...]
Wow. This is part 1 of 3 in the arc, and it's just fantastic writing and art, that could have been melodramatic or silly in a lesser author's hands. Brubaker does a fantastic job here. Winter Soldier/Bucky is a great character, with tons of layers to him, and the best characters are always the conflicted/complex ones. I am very glad I borrowed all 3 parts from the library at the same time. Delightful to read.
Death of the Dream is a cleverly written storyline encompassing the effects that the Civil War among the heroes has had on the entire Marvel Universe. The fact that it signals a major event which was likely to severely change the landscape of the upcoming Marvel stories makes this a memorable arc.The thing about Captain America is that he surrendered at the end of the Civil War on seeing the adverse effects even his stand was causing to the innocents around him. He saw the very thing he was tryi [...]
VOYA Review Codes: G; S, A/AY; 4P; 5Q The Death of Captain America written by Ed Brubaker, and art by Steve Epting and Mike Perkins is a dynamic action pack drama about the assassination of America’s hero Steve Rogers, better known as Captain America. The story begins with Cappy’s genesis; “…The skinny kid who grew up on the streets of New York City during the Depression…seeing the best and worst that America had to offer. How he saw the Nazi marching on Europe…and tried to join the [...]
Following directly on the heals of Civil War, the three books of the Captain America: The Death of Captain America series begins with Cap's assassination and follows the hunt for his killers, to the very end where the whole plot is revealed.This, being the novel in which Cap was actually assassinated, was the most heart-wrenching for me. And I say that being a DC fan who hasn't read a lot of Captain America. But I do know enough of this icon for it to hit home. I was unfamiliar with many of the [...]
This first part of a trilogy begins with a bang. Filled with legendary crime fighters and evil masterminds, this graphic novel shows great promise. It helps if one has a rudimentary background of the characters (even watching the Avengers movie helps), but there are enough flashbacks that neophytes will not feel daunted. Many folks wonder why the Cap is so revered, since his "superpowers" pale in comparison to those of other superheroesis story will set them straight. I cannot wait to get to Vol [...]
A hell of a story, but there was a lot missing from this volume. It's definitely not a good starting place for the story, coming as it does at the end of Civil War. A person with no knowledge of the Marvel Universe will be completely lost. Also, it felt rushed all over the place, with a lot of action happening offstage. I wondered how much of the story was being told in other titles released contemporaneously with the main Cap title. However, the whole killing Cap thing is a ballsy move, and one [...]
Very well written story dealing with the aftermath of Captain America's death. My only concern as I continue reading is that it is impossible to read this book on its own. Brubaker is creating a 40-something issue story, and it's fantastic stuff but you can't read part of it on its own.
I'm old school, so the death of Captain America is a problem at the title. However, this is both well written and well illustrated. Kudos. I liked it, but gotta admit that Cap can't die for me.
I keep picking up Captain America TPBs at the library, but I don't know why. Captain America just doesn't grab me in any way.
Te odio Marvel!!! Me traicionas de nuevo
Spinning out of Civil War we are provided with a depressing cure for the Superhuman Registration Act. Captain America surrenders himself during the end of Civil War once he says the damage that the fighting has caused. On his way to his trial, he is murdered and apparently dies.I enjoyed seeing how each the characters react to the death. How the country mostly put aside it's division and honored a fallen hero. I liked seeing the history between Bucky and Black Widow. Overall there were a lot of [...]
There's not a lot that really distinguishes this in and of itself - the art is kind of the same thing we've been seeing on Brubaker's run all along, and the script isn't really that interesting (and also weirdly puts a lot crap on Sharon Carter, which sits funny with me). This is another storyline I've kind of cooled on - maybe I'll come back to it later.
This is one of the best Cap story lines in a while. Artwork is glorious and and the novel itself is a great continuation of the Civil War arc.
Amazing.Breathaking. Gorgeous.The End.
On the hunt to find Cap's murderer and the people behind the plot. This is pretty standard superhero stuff, other that Cap being dead.
