Review: Captain America: Sam Wilson #14

captain-america-sam-wilson-14-cover“TAKE BACK THE SHIELD” STARTS NOW! The world has received an ULTIMATUM: Peace in our time…or face the fury of The Flag-Smasher! Amid cries of “#TakeBacktheShield”, Sam Wilson stands against a rising tide. But he is not alone! Guest-starring in this issue – Steve Rogers: Captain America! Only, Steve has a secret…

Marvel Comics is back with issue #14 of Captain America: Sam Wilson. This is the first issue of this series that I’ve read and I was able to gather pretty quickly that America is having a hard time with Sam Wilson now holding the shield and there has been a movement formed called #Takebacktheshield in response. Sam’s also having a hard time dealing with the response from the public and at times has issues with the job itself. After all he isn’t a super human.

Writer Nick Spencer does a great job with the writing for this series except for one spot and that is Captain America’s big secret at the end of the issue. His writing makes you feel bad for Sam and everything that he has gone through as well as the dialogue with the main protagonist.

The artwork, coloring and cover art by Paul Renaud, John Rauch and Marcos Martin was really well done but what else do you expect from artists with Marvel Comics. The visualization was really solid and all the characters look really good as well, the only thing I will say is the colors could have been a little more vibrant, but that’s just how I like it…. bright and colorful but the artistic team did a fantastic job

Overall this issue was good. There was a strong plot point and the dialogue was good and the art was fantastic, but the big surprise at the end pissed me off and I feel like they made Sam Wilson sound too much like a baby and a bit out of character.
