Review: The Death of Captain America Vol.3

Happy government workers in Mass. get an extra day off day (a.k.a. Patriot’s Day).  It seemed appropriate to finally finally finish up the Death of Captain America today.  Not that these issues actualy wrap anything up.  At story’s end Cap is still dead and most of the villains are still at large.  But what this book does is cement Bucky in place as the new Captain America.

Since taking over the book Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting have maintained the book’s quality without missing a beat.  Many reviewers have noted that the book has been so constant that it’s become difficult to review.  We’re nearly 50 issues into what is essentially a single story arc now with no end in site, but nothing feels like it’s padded and the tale certainly isn’t dragging on.  

This is just a massive superhero epic unlike anything else being written at the moment.

    I know that this will reveal me to be hopelessly out of the loop, but how does Marvel replace a dead Captain America with his dead sidekick?

  2. geekylibrarian Says:

    The Wikipedia page covers it pretty well (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucky#Winter_Soldier). Really it’s actually pretty good, I know it shouldn’t be, but it is.

  3. Jason Says:

    Maybe it is pretty good, but I will need a little while to get past the idea that Marvel resurrected a character who had long been “dead for good,” and then gave him a frigging bionic arm.

      You clearly have not seen the evil alternate reality Uncle Ben story that Peter David wrote. Sadly I’m not joking.
