I have to admit, when I first started collecting graphic novels, my friend and I used to just think of Captain America as a bit of a joke. We used to think it was just some American flag waving and self importance.
However, when Brubaker took over Cap and just started pumping out this amazing storyline, it was irresistable. After reading the entire run, right up to his death, I was just mesmerised. I became totally hooked, and knew I had to own this giant omnibus because in my opinion, you can't go halfway on something like this.
The artwork is absolutely stunning all the way through. The characters are so real and feel so human that you genuinely feel for them. Steve Roger's is not just some stupid American horn blower about how the US is so much better than everyone else. Steve Roger's will always, in my heart, go down as one of the greatest heroes in the long history of comics. Buy this, read it again and again. Hell, even if you don't like comics, buy it anyway. Everybody loves a great story, whether its about real life drama or a man running round throwing a shield at people. This story has everything from a complicated love interest to heart-stopping action and true emotional depth. There is no better storyline than this in any comic, from any company.

Everyone should own this by law.

Re-imagining the quintessential Marvel hero has been something of a task recently , and this fifth volume , written by Ed Brubaker and with art mainly by Steve Epting , reveals a very different Cap . The story is more of an espionage / post Cold War thriller , than general spandex heroics , and the change is refreshing as a consequence .

The last few issues take place during the Civil War crossover that involved pretty much the whole Marvel universe , and so there may be a few comments which refer to the larger goings on than are represented within the book itself .

I cannot recommend the series highly enough

I have never thought of Captain America as being a hero that could sell in England to well. As far as I was concerned he fits into that same area as the likes of Superman. We could all understand the teenage angst of Spiderman, the alienation and prejudice the X-Men faced or the need for revenge that the likes of Batman or the Punisher where doling out. But Captain America is a bit like the Aardman Animations, they had a certain cultural overlap that could be understood around the world but the very core of them could only be understood by the Brits.

So Captain America fitted into the Marvel Universe a little uncomfortably for me, an accepted part that was tolerated but never really enjoyed.

The came Ed Brubaker.

He took Captain America and looked at the history and how he interacts with the world. This is no longer a book about heroes, but the shadowy world of espionage both local and global. This series also introduces a new villain who may have more History with Captain America than he realises.

So what do you get in this Omnibus. This covers the first 25 issues of the latest run of Captain America. Also there are two specials in here, Captain America 65th Anniversary Special and Winter Soldier: Winter Kills. This run also covers two major Marvel Cross Overs. The first being the awful House of M. But again Brubaker does a wonderful job using it to show us what could have happened if Captain America stopped the missile and never got frozen, showing us how he would have fitted into this new America.

Then there is the Civil War cross over. This may cause the most confusion if you have never followed what was going on.

I must say i wasn't familiar with Ed Brubaker work before reading his Iron Fist series which i loved. But nothing prepared myself for his take on one of my favourite characters , Captain America! Brubaker knowledge of all the characters lore combined with the film noir/spy flick feeling he managed to introduce throughout the series is complely fresh. The Winter Soldier run is probably the best one in Cap long history. Essential reading and a surprisingly accessible one even for non comic books fans.
