Captain America #699

   This one is hardly worth the effort of reviewing.

   By which I mean, this continues to be one of the best comics out there.

   Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are staging a clinic here on how to do an amazing comic. (The secret is: great story, great art.)

   Captain America finds himself in the world of the future (again), and like the last time around (in Avengers #4) he wastes little time in self-pity - and instead goes to work to correct the injustices plaguing this "new" world.

   His efforts bring him into contact with two well-known powerhouses - the Hulk and the Thing (and as the cover says, the two don't actually fight here).

    It's all a setup, of course, for the next issue - #700 - which, I believe, marks the final issue for this team. Whoever follows has a heck of a lot to live up to!

   This has been an amazing series, and if you haven't been following it, be sure to get the inevitable collection!

   See? Hardly worth the effort to write this review - that previous sentence tells you all you need to know.

Grade: A
