At the end of May I posted up a list of comics that are currently on my pull list. Today I’ll be focusing on the other comics that I’ve checked out or previously followed but later dropped (or put on hold to pick up at a later date via collected paperback):
Captain America (Marvel NOW!)
By: Rick Remender (writer), John Romita Jr. (art)
Thrust into a bizarre, inhospitable world far from home, the all-new, high-adventure, mind-melting, tough-as-nails, sci-fi, pulp-fantasy era of Captain America is NOW! With no country and no allies, what’s left for the Sentinel of Liberty to protect? The Saga of Dimension Z begins here!
This was one of the first comic books that I started collecting on my pull list; I had reviewed the Dimension Z storyline last year (review) and found it very interesting. It dragged a little bit towards the end of that arc, but after Captain America got out of Dimension Z, I was optimistic that the story would pick up. This was not the case. The story arc with Nuke was promising but it was over too quickly, and the prologue with the new bad guy (whose group I don’t even remember–suffice to say the parallels with present day politics continues) was too slow and uninteresting for me to bother continuing with the series. So sadly I dropped this title from the pull list.
