AIPTSentinel of Liberty is a book for Cap fans by Cap fans and you can feel the love these writers have for this series seeping out in their stories.
Comic WatchThis is certainly gearing up to be a Captain America story for the ages. Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, Carmen Carnero, and Nolan Woodard and building an epic that could be on par or greater than the last few Captain America runs. The storytelling and mystery is fantastic, the art is amazing and the complete package is well worth the read!
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Intense, fast paced and engaging, Lanzing and Kelly deliver a great story in this issue. I love the intrigue of the plot as well as the inclusion of Frost to the mix. There is some great tension in the story with Peggy’s anger and the others discovering exactly what happened to them while they were missing. There is a great mystery in this issue and I cannot wait to see where it goes next. The Art: Carnero delivers impressive visuals throughout the issue. The story is character focused and the art reflects the range of emotions of the characters while also delivering some visual thrills as well.
Henchman-4-HireA couple guest appearances make this issue especially fun, building on a very solid foundation of escalation in the ongoing story.
Marvel Heroes LibraryInteresting issue with a major jump in plot as we find out Manhattan has been conquered by AIM—with a major blooper in that the story locates Steve’s apartment in Manhattan when previous issues set it in Brooklyn, specifically mentioning it is where Steve grew up.

ComicBook.comAfter going off the grid for five days and finding themselves scattered to the wind as New York falls under AIM control, Steve Rogers calls upon an... acquaintance to figure out the full extent of what they're facing. Like other issues of Sentinel of Liberty, this comic presents a problem and solves it a bit too quickly. While the comic could have played out the missing days a bit more, they choose to skip the drama and cut right to the resolution. It undercuts a pretty cool idea once again, which has been a flaw of the series since the opening pages.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsCaptain America: Sentinel of Liberty #8 is an odd issue that loosely strings seemingly random events together to create a general approximation of a story. Some of the random events make sense, most do not, and the majority of the issue is simply people standing around talking.
