After Captain America #25 shocked the world and catapulted the Living Legend’s final moments into the mainstream media spotlight, the Eisner-nominated team of Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting continue the acclaimed “Death Of A Dream” storyline in Captain America #26. With Captain America dead, there are major repercussions for Winter Soldier (once known as Bucky, Cap’s sidekick), Sharon Carter, The Falcon and the rest of Cap’s allies. Unfortunately for them, Red Skull and his comrades aren’t sitting idly by…but what is their endgame?
The acclaim just won’t end for Captain America. “We’ve got to commend Brubaker and Epting for making daring choices throughout their tenure on the book and for smart, skillful work,” said Newsarama’s Troy Brownfield of the acclaimed Captain America.
Other critics echoed similar sentiments about Captain America. Ambush Bug, of Ain’t-It-Cool-News.Com, called Captain America #25 a “well-written and action packed issue that not only shows us why Cap is such an important character, but lays out an engrossing mystery for the reader to enjoy. It’s top notch storytelling from cover to cover.”
With constant attention from mainstream media and fans new & old, Captain America is red-hot and Marvel advises retailers to check their orders on upcoming issues, as the fallout from Civil War and the death of Captain America continues!
