    Too Many Whoa Moments To Count

    I have a feeling that this book is flying a little under the radar. That's a damn shame because this comic is absolutely stunning. Every panel is filled with the perfect blend of intrigue and Steve's aw shucks square jawed personality. It's almost like what if Jimmy Stewart were a badass spy.

So much can happen so quick, and in a mini-series often does, that the book doesn't often have a very strong voice. Granted, most minis aren't penned by one of the best writers in comics, Ed Brubaker, who when it comes to Cap, is the king. As a result, the impossible happens, a mini-series that has voice, personality, and the potential to be a great ongoing (Even thou...
