    What readers will discover is that this entire installment is centered around setup, which is fine. However, the opening-ended ambiguity left a little to be desired. Captain America #7 was certainly striking but its mystery added some unwanted confusion to the story. Nevertheless, the fantasy element in a Captain America story has this reader intrigued. In a Cap comic, this feels new which is why I can give this story a couple more issues before making my final judgment. For now, I’m a bit hesitant in this almost dark fairy tale story. Yet, I can’t help but have my interest piqued.

    Captain America was always one of the most grounded heroes as you can’t get more realistic than placing the hero in an actual historical situation like World War 2. But every so often we see a new side to Cap such as Operation Galactic Storm or Dimension Z, both science fiction epics or here and now with Cap battling demons and supernatural forces. And so we have an issue that is mainly setting up a new fantasy milieu, entered via a theater whose acts seem inspired by Guillermo Del Toro, featuring some Dr. Strange-style exposition about a villainous brother we never see. And Cap readily jumps into this new realm in a two-part story that looks to be setting up the rest of JMS’ run. Cool issue has a different feel to it, magical and haunting at the same time. I’m really interested in where this goes.

    Captain America #7 kicks off a new adventure that draws Cap much deeper into the mystical side of the Marvel universe. The art and story feel like a Sandman story from DC, but in this case, that might be a good thing.

    Captain America abandoned the exposition-heavy soapbox of the obvious that it spent its first six issue on, only to trade it on for a new story that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It’s certainly more interesting than what was happening in the first arc, but I’d be hard-pressed to say it’s any better. At least the new direction makes room for a lot more interesting supporting characters.
