Captain America has been one of my favorite series since Ed Brubaker took over several years ago.

We all knew that when the original Captain America, Steve Rogers, was killed at the end of the Civil War event, that he would be back at some point. Unfortunately, this series that is bringing Steve back to life has been plagued by delays, and had an extra issue added to complete the story.

So, was the wait for Issue #6 worth it? Well, I guess it depends on how much you HAD to have Steve Rogers back behind the shield. If you really wanted him back, than this may have lived up to the expectations, but for me, the whole series has been kind of underwhelming, and I’ll be glad to get back to the regular adventures of Bucky Barnes or Steve Rogers or whoever they want to call Cap.

The final battle with the Red Skull should be impressive, but there is hardly any tension, and that’s largely because we’ve already seen what happens to the characters in many other Marvel series. The big question in my mind now is, where does the series go from here? We get a brief glimpse of the future in this issue, and it’s good to know that writer Ed Brubaker has a plan going forward. One thing that can be said is that the art by Bryan Hitch looks great, and the extra time may have been worth it for him to turn in his best work.

Rating: 2 out of 5
