Captain America #7

captain-america-7-coverMaybe I’m getting Captain America fatigue (three issues in three weeks is quite a bit of old Cap). Or maybe I’m just not quite on board with this new story arc by Ed Brubaker.

The comic opens with three pages involving a prison riot caused by Codename: Bravo. The attempt here is to create ominous foreshadowing for something down the line, but it comes off more like a waste of 10% of a comic I spent $4 for.

The main story, which feels something taken right out of a Captain America comic of the 70’s complete with mindbending bombs, riots, and the Falcon, features Steve Rogers still trying to figure out what the Serpent Squad did to him in the last issue to turn him back into puny Steve Rogers (and then punching him a couple times before… letting him go?).

The issue does have some bright spots such as focusing much of the story on a conversation between Cap and Sharon Carter. And the action, drawn by Alan Davis, looks like we want a Captain America comic to look like. Not great, but still worth a look.

[Marvel, $3.99]
