Captain America has and will always be my favorite Superhero and he returns in a new series titled “Captain America: Homecoming”. As a plot point Cap finds himself back in his hometown with Black Widow alongside. You learn a limited amount about Steve’ life before he became a hero in this issue. Several jokes abound the dialogue and helps to make the writing fresh and interactive with the reader.
Issue #1 is quite short, but offers an interesting story line that will keep the reader interested going in to future issues. The artwork continues to be top notch and contemporary. I’ve noticed in the past that there are quite few iterations of Captain America, and that keeps the character fresh year after year.
If your expecting to learn background information about Captain America before going to see the new film you need to look elsewhere. This issue is to further elaborate on the friendship between Captain and Black Widow, which is one of the best in comics today.
The beginning of this series shows promise for the future on the “Homecoming” series. If your wanting to jump into a new Captain America comic series then this would be a good way to start.
