Captain America - Steve Rogers #14
by Marvel Comics. Written by Nick Spencer, art by Jesus Saiz.
Every issue in this series feels like it's building to something big but the big event every arrives. It's starting to get really tiresome. Also this has to be one of the wordiest books out there. I know that seems a odd complaint of a medium that relies on dialogue and narrative but it's a bit overwhelming to see these massive speech bubbles on a page that don't actually say much at all. I wish Nick Spencer would let the art do more to tell the story, Jesus Siaz is a great artist. Let him show us what he can do.
I know this series will lead us into the next big Marvel event (Secret Empire) but I don't think it's doing it in an exciting way. We have an issue where yet another character goes around recruiting others to join team Hydra (I have no idea who these characters are), we get more of the Capt America flash back story and we see Capt attempt to take down Carol Danvers's world wide shield defence system. Why is Capt against this seemingly great idea? I have no idea but I guess it's because it doesn't serve Hydra's interests. This book is soooo light on action that there's very little to get excited about. I wounded if a 12 year old version of me were to pick up this comic and read it would he be excited? Comics always filled me with a sense of joy and adventure when I read them as a child. Sadly I don't think this book will excite anyone. -
