It's picked up in the past 2 or 3 issues. It's worth checking out. Some people just loooove Brubaker on Cap, I do too. But I haven't been much of a fan of this run until #12.

@MurieC16: The story is very good currently. However, Brubaker is leaving in like 5 issues so who knows how it will be after that. If you want to read the best Cap story, start reading the Volume 5 series that is the beginning of Brubakers run. It is the Winter Soldier arc so you can get a good idea of what the movie may be about. It is my favorite run of comics ever. Plus, it will lead into the Winter Soldier series that is one of Marvel's best ongoing series at the moment.

If it's your first time reading Captain America, if you're willing to, I'd suggest going back and getting the Trades of his first Captain America run along with his current one. Pretty much anything with Captain America and Brubaker together is amazing.

It's not great, but it's not bad. You get to see a lot of Agent 13 if you're a fan of her's.

I love it, any Cap stories by Brubaker are good.

This. But I got to say I'm not a fan of the apparent "love triangle" that seems to be brewing, it's too cliche. I got enough of that from Cyclops, Wolverine and Jean

Rachel Leighton, who isn't a bad support character, but I've always liked Sharon more.

@Blood1991: Oh, yeah. Now I get it, lol. been a long day at work and I'm a little out of it, starting to have a "rockstar crash", I drank like 4 of them. But yeah I agree, I actually like Sharon and Cap together, they been through alot, her death, her comeback, his death, his comeback, (starting to see a theme here :-) ) her being pregnant, and then loosing it. It seems like they are doing the love triangle just to do it.
