If you've been following the events in Captain America, you will love this book (and the Free Comic Book Day issue that's coming soon).
If you're worried that Cap will forever be Hydra, don't. If you're interested in seeing one of the Marvel Universes top strategists running amok with a skewed moral compass, this stuff is a hoot.
Will it stay good? Will it ship on time? Sadly, these are real things that we don't have the power to rewrite, but it's already better than Civil War II.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
