Review: Captain America #30

Captain America #30

Captain America #30 wraps up Ta-Nehisi Coates’ run on Captain America. Captain America will (yet again) finally face off with his biggest foe, the Red Skull. After thoroughly thrashing Crossbones, Cap’s plan to defeat his foe lies not in punching him out but in exposing his true intentions to the many internet followers that the Red Skull has.

My first thought after reading this issue is that Coates wraps up his take on the character with not a bang but a whisper. There have been so many fights between Cap and the Skull and it’s maybe as damaging to expose your enemy to their blindsided followers as it is to beat them unconscious. But, it did feel a tad bit lackluster. This run hasn’t been about establishing power levels or memorable fights; it’s been more thought-provoking. I think there’s some legitimate darkness and evil to some of the rhetoric of the Red Skull that’s been used in this storyline and you can certainly see it reflected in our very real lives. I love that Coates tapped into that to see how damaging it can really be. To some, that’s boring and bland but I have an appreciation for stories driven like this. Cap is in a good place for when the next creative team relaunches the title.

I thought the overall look of Captain America #30 was good but not anything really special. I’ve liked Leonard Kirk’s work more on other books but there was just something about it with Cap that almost felt wasted on this issue. His artistic style really shines on a book with a lot of colorful suits and big action. Matt Milla’s colors work with the art and Joe Caramagna’s letters don’t hide anything but there’s almost a lack of energy to the overall product.

Captain America #30 is a fine end to the Coates era of Captain America. I think there were some important ideals tackled with this particular story and it really puts some thoughts in your head about extremism. It would have been nice to also see someone like the Red Skull get punched out, too. I think if you have passion for what Coates did with Cap or if you are critical of his work on the character, an issue like this is going to do little to sway your opinion. I found it to be a decent end for another memorable run of Captain America.
