Captain America #23

by F.D. White on August 14, 2014

Written by: Rick Remender
Art by: Carlos Pacheco, Mariano Taibo, and Dean White


Unvengers Unsemble! 

This is what I want in a comic book. It manages to tip-toe across the lines of goofy, funny, and serious all at once. On one page you can be given raw emotion and then the next you see something like "Hulk am poet of smash!" (great line, by the way). Rick Remender has always been very good at this balancing act. However, the Nuke arc and Iron Nail were surprisingly devoid of most humor, except Dr. Mindbubble's ridiculous and awesome character design. Now with Zola back and his hordes of mutates running amuck we're finally allowed to have a little fun. 

It's hard to talk about this issue without spoiling too much, but there are two big reveals. One of which might seem obvious, but one actually caught me off guard. It's nice to see the story beginning to come full circle in a meaningful way. 

Carlos Pacheco and Dean White do a fantastic job in the art department this issue. There were a few moments where bodies were positioned awkwardly, but for the most part Pacheco nails it. As always, Dean White does phenomenal coloring. It's always surprised me that Captain America has remained somewhat consistent in the art despite changing artists very many times. Something about the art seems to fit together even though Romita Jr., Klein, and Pacheco aren't derivitive of each other. 

Captain America is now in it's final stages. For those who have been following since the beginning this arc should be incredibly satisfying. For those who haven't been reading it's best to avoid this series until it finishes with issue #25 and then catch up via trade!
