The last third of the book was amazing...
on 26 October 2011
Art: Several artists worked on this collection. Perkins' and Epting's art was top notch, as always. But I didn't really like Pulido's and Martin's art, it was very retro, though I understood why it was used for the flashback. Nonetheless, it felt a bit jarring, the transition between the styles. 4 stars.
Story: The last third of the book was amazing, full of action and great heroes, both male and female, kicking butt. But! The first two thirds? Slow, oh so slow. Too much time and space given to Lukin/Red Skull and Crossbones and Sin, a lot of talk and not enough action. I wanted to see the Cap going after Bucky, an intriguing cat and mouse game, what I got was the Red Skull plotting and cackling madly in the background. He's mad, Lukin is untouchable, we get it, Mr. Brubaker, move on! 2 stars.
