    "this is the perfect execution of tying in a bunch of marvel storylines into a single climactic story arc. so good it divides the fandom. if there is any comic that is THE best captain america comic, this is it."

    "normally, bringing a character back from the dead is a tough trick to pull off, and often executed badly. not with this comic! it was such an interesting twist that not only was bucky alive, but working for the enemy?! WHEW!"

    "how ironic that one of the best captain america comics is one where the titular shield-totting hero dies. tears were shed across the nation. shame the marvel movies never pulled off this storyline the way it happened in the comics"

    "i love it when a comic can explore personal sides of characters rather than just continuously painting them as heroes. showcasing cap's adjustment to modern times gave him a unique human side that i thoroughly enjoyed reading. not the best overall, but this makes it the best captain america comic in my opinion"
