captain-america-5-coverIt might have taken an extra month (and an extra artist) but the latest volume of Captain America finally ends its first arc. As Captain American is trapped in the dream reality battling Codename: Bravo, Sharon Carter pleads with the only man alive who can save him – Jimmy Jupiter.

Although Steve McNiven and Giuseppe Camuncoli’s art don’t compliment each other as much as I’d like, issue #5 proves to be a good finale for the first arc by introducing psychological warfare as the best weapon to use against Steve Rogers.

Sharon Carter gets a couple of nice moments here as well including being the one responsible for bringing Cap back to reality, and kicking the shit out of Codename: Bravo.

As to Queen Hydra‘s plan to use Cap’s patriotism against him, I’m intrigued to see where writer Ed Brubaker will take us next. Worth a look.

[Marvel, $3.99]
