Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #7 finds Cap on the mend from an injured arm and a broken heart after losing his battle with Bucky over the Outer Circle. Now, Cap gathers the few allies he can trust to form a new team and a new plan to take the Outer Circle down.

Is It Good?

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #7 is fine-ish but not great.

When last we saw Cap in this arc, he spent nearly an entire issue fighting Bucky to stop the former Winter Soldier from joining the Outer Circle as the New Revolution; a fight Cap ultimately lost. Now, Cap spends two-thirds of the issue moping while an assortment of cameo characters arrive to cheer him up, including Namor and Sharon Carter. Eventually, Cap pulls his head out of America’s ass and gathers trusting foes to recap the situation, lay out the stakes, and give everyone their marching orders to prepare.

Suddenly, Cap wakes up in the middle of Kansas, and NYC is under A.I.M. control.

In short, this issue transitions from a lot of moping to a glimmer of hope to a “What the…?” cliffhanger.

If Lanzing and Kelly have a grand plan in mind for the Outer Circle, they’re taking a very long, meandering, uneven road to get there. If you can fight through boredom, you may enjoy this issue. For everyone else, your attention is better spent elsewhere.

Final Thoughts:

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #7 follows up the heartbreaking conclusion to issue #6 with a lot of moping, a little progress, and a big cliffhanger that comes out of nowhere. The art is solid, but the writers are putting too much burden on readers to stay invested in a largely listless and boring story.

5.5/10
