Captain America #19

Sad to see that this is Ed Brubaker's last issue as the writer on Captain America.

He finishes up his run with a strong issue (with excellent art by Steve Epting) that offers a look at Cap's motivations, wraps up some loose ends and sets the stage for the next creative team.

Brubaker's run on the title has been impressive, crafting some long-running storylines, bringing Cap through some improbable stories that would never have worked with a lesser writer, including the death (and rebirth) of Cap, and bringing Bucky back to life in a clever and convincing way that made him a viable modern character - and I would never have believed that could ever happen.

The next team has some big shoes to fill - let's hope they're up to the challenge!

Grade: A
