Issue Review

   November 21, 2014
Awful. Right from the start this is a painful read, establishing that ALL the previous issues were meaningless. The story did not advance one bit. And Falcon even says it. Next: information arrives in from somewhere telling the two heroes where to go next! Rendering them ineffectual pawns. It really could be any two agents doing this. Then we get to the ‘love story’. Nonsense. A girl who doesn't know who CA is. But later does. And he reveals his secret identity! Huh? What the hell is this? And why is there a big battle at the end? This is horrendous. 1/10

  -Surely Carol would recognize someone dressed as Captain Freakin' America. Oh! She didn't notice anything but his MASKED face. And then Cap tries to play it off?...WTF?
-Man, is this "love story" forced or what? The dialogue is sooo nauseating.
-Why would The Falcon think Carol was hurt in the shootout when he just saw her on the beach with Cap?

  I thought this was "Captain America", not "Our Love" or some other romance title

  The dialogue is so stilted! This is excruciating.

  The only love story is on the letters page where not a negative word has been printed about Kirby.

  I think I'd rather be nagged for 15 minutes by my darling wife than spend 5 minutes reading this caca again.

  I liked this story, but I think Cap is forgetting about Sharon back home.

  The second letter in the letters column has one of the best opening lines ever! For those that don't have access to the letters page here it is..

"After catching diabetes from the letters column in Captain America 195, ...."

The writer isn't actually that critical of the story as I thought it was going to be.

  Did I miss something? When did this become a romance comic?

  I can tell you who's NOT in love with Cap - the readers.
