Issue Review
   November 18, 2016
Gunfire, death, siege situation.
Unusually gritty and grim for a CA tale. Don't like Frank Robbins art, either.
Too much space devoted to Falcon and the (annoying) new/replacement Captain America. No interested in that kid. Hopefully soon see the back of him.

  Someone needs to tell Frank Robbins that big eyes are making all of his characters look like children. This could have been more enjoyable with better art.

  The writing in this is awful.

  hmm.. nah.. for me the art was the worst part. but the writing was awful aswell.

  SO another Cap arc comes to end and guess who shows up. It's getting as predictable as Odin meddling in Thor.

  I'm going to buck the flow here and say I liked Frank Robbins on this. It's not typical 1970's art, more Will Eisner, but I thought is was a nice change of pace.

The writing was not great, but it had some fun bits. I like Roscoe, and seeing Cap get handcuffed to that tire was priceless.

  What the hell is wrong with Rosco. Is he stupid, have an accent? I hate reading him talk.  

  TheAmazingGatorMan Says:    
  2015-07-07 09:52:00  
  Is it bad of me to hope that Red Skull kills Rosco?

  I liked this. The cops taking out Nomad was funny, and Peggy and Gabe dating was pretty progressive for the time, I think.

  What just happened with the art here? I might like it better if it didn't go so much against how the art was in the previous issues of this arc with the Serpent Squad.

  Nobody else going to mention that Red was wearing a big hat and a Baron Zemo mask to cover up his Red Skull mask? I feel like there could have been an easier solution for that.
"Dey bot' t'ot dey was big guys." I would love to see this guy show up in an Avengers movie to hear Fury say "English mother(&$#er! Do you speak it?!"
Considering how many heroes the police see running around all the time, you would think their first instinct when one tries to help them wouldn't be rifle butt to the base of the skull.

  I didn't know the serpent crown could move on its own. Did it move the manhole cover so it could escape?

  The Serpent Crown is like Marvel's take of the One Ring.

  I never made that connection, but that explains so much when you think about. Gives a whole new meaning to a lot of stories.

  Wow, Roscoe really needs to go.
P.S. I didn't mind the art at all.

  sbcolt15 Says:

  I was kind of liking Nomad up to this point, but now I can't wait for Steve to go back to being Cap.  

  Russ Says:    
  2017-12-17 11:38:01  
  Yeah, so Roscoe is just a kid talking with a thick Brooklyn (?) accent, to distinguish the fact that he's not the real Captain America. I'm not minding this arc, it's certainly different from anything we've read before, but I think I'm with @sbccolt15, it's time Steve Rogers became Cap again.

The showdown in Seattle with what was left of the Serpent Squad was pretty funny. The cops thought Steve as Nomad was a fresh punk; Viper raving some nonsense about becoming a martyr (not sure how she figured that would happen), and Cobra just wanting out of this mess. It's amazing that incident didn't turn into more of a fustercluck than it already was.

3 stars. Figures the Red Numbskull would think he captured the real Cap.

  Robbins art is...different. It's not Steranko different, but it is different. If he tones down the wide-eyed look to his characters it'll improve. In fact, I thought his Viper was Eineresque.

Story is a bit odd, not Starlin or Gerber odd, but odd.

Three stars. I think something is beginning to gel here.
