Competent isn't worth it when there are better comics that I could spend my limited budget on. If I can only afford ten to fifteen books a month, competent doesn't quite make the grade.

But for the purposes of a one-off purchase for the Group, I say it does.

Then you review it with those criteria in mind. For me if the book isn't worth buying then I'm not going to give it a high score. Book I like gets a good score, book I don't gets a crap score.
This book failed to elicit any real reaction for me, good or bad. It was neither exceptionally good nor bad and when reading it I didn't have anything I felt the need to bring up when talking about it.

But you haven't even reviewed it! Competence should at least merit a 100 or so words.

Nemesis, whether positive or negative, should provoke strong reaction.

Wow, that was really bad. Very by the numbers and overdrawn horribly. I saw the Steve the trained soldier thing before it even happened. I expected better from Bru.

Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier #3

I love Ed Brubaker's Cap. I can honestly say that in the last 5+ years there hasn't been a single issue of his run that I haven't enjoyed. The characters, the stories, the tone... it all just clicks perfectly for me. It doesn't really matter what the title of this book is, to me it's a Brubaker Cap comic and just like every other Brubaker Cap comic it thoroughly kicks ass. It's great to be able to read a comic with Steve being Steve, it kind of makes me feel like all is right with the world. It doesn't matter if he's wearing a Cap costume or not.

Dale Eaglesham is a freaking beast. When the day comes that Steve is the lead in the Captain America book again, I hope Eaglesham will be the regular artist. Great storytelling. Beautiful aesthetics.

Story: 9
Art: 9
Overall: 9

Last call for SR:SS reviews! I'll be posting a front page thingy after I get back from lunch. I would do it now, but I'm hungry!

Front page things should be back on a regular schedule next week, my FY10 is officially over and I can go back to being my slack happy self! :band
