Captain America #700

   Trapped in the future, Captain America celebrates his 700th issue by fighting for the United States - but not one that we might recognize.

   That's because he's trapped in the future - one in which America has suffered under a tyrant's rule.

   Cap led a group of freedom fighters (including a few familiar faces) to bring liberty back to the country - but keeping the country free is proving to be a huge challenge.

   What happens next - and the ultimate resolution of the story - takes Cap to some interesting places, forced to make the kind of decisions he's never had to face before.

   It's the story of a hero and a role model, and a darned good one. This issue, sadly, wraps up Chris Samnee's amazing run on the art, after a long and fruitful run with writer Mark Waid on this, Daredevil and Black Widow.

   In a backup feature, Waid also teams up - sort of - with another artist famous for his work on Captain America - namely, Jack Kirby! It's an offbeat story Waid managed to reverse-engineer - it's a bit silly but lots of fun!

   So, this is another excellent issue in the "new" adventures of Cap! Highly recommended!

Grade: A
