Loss for words
I feel like I'm losing a friend here. When I pick up the current run of Cap, I really feel a ping of sadness at what it has become. I know Remender has talent, I know he can write. Some of his work has been stellar, but this is one book he should remove himself from.
The writing in this is lengthy and boring. Nothing is going on and each issue is skipping amounts of time. None of it is interesting and the few little quirks it has are not even worth mention. It seems like it is trying to do something interesting but just falls flat on it`s face. I can handle Cap in a different element, that isn't the issue, its how poorly it is executed and I just don't like the book because its bad.
As for the art Romita Jr. is a disaster on this book and it feels more like a Rob Liefeld issue than one he drew. That's a bold claim, I know. Jr can draw good, I've seen it, but this book isn't his best for some reason. Maybe he sees what he has to work with?
As bad as I hate to say it about my favorite character`s title, save yourself the trouble and leave this on the shelf.
