I posted a review about it in the Review Group. Basically it's an improvement over the previous issues if you're not a fan of Romita Jr.'s artwork but it seems like Pacheco was trying to emulate Romita Jr.'s style a little bit. There's definitely room for improvement.

Well, they both used Klaus Janson and Dean White to ink and color so it definitely kept the same feel but it was really good.

Except all that burning shit.

Marvel more respectful of DC's history than DC is? Not surprising. :roll:

You don't like Klaus Janson and Dean White together?

I wouldn't say that, I just don't want to see more of Romita Jr.'s style now that he is off of the title and Pacheco is on.

A JSA homage? Why not an Invaders homage?

Something has been bugging me about the past 2 issues of this series. In the previous issue we saw the Iron Nail siphon the super soldier serum from Steve Roger's body, once again leaving him in his frail, pre-super soldier state. According to the current issue, it also apparently left Steve as an elderly man. Even if the super solider serum is responsible for Steve surviving all the years that he was frozen after World War II, it wouldn't account for him rapidly aging as a direct result of the serum being removed from his body, he would simply begin to age normally.

Could it be that the Steve Rogers that returned from Dimension Z isn't the real Steve Rogers at all but rather an elaborate clone and/or some type of Zola mutate? One that was so dependent upon the super soldier serum that when it was removed from it's system it began to break down on a molecular level?! :shock:

It could be, but, I don't know, I don't see it happening.

Thank you Troy for the sig

There was a whole lot of Fear Agent-y type stuff going on during the whole Dimension Z storyline. There's no telling what type of mad sciencey shenanigans that Zola was up too.

I would. The first 12 issues completely take Cap out of his element. Yeah, there are a few head scratchers here or there (I'm looking at you boiling water in Cap's shield :P) but all things considered it's a nice contrast to Brubaker's spectacular run.
