CAPTAIN AMERICA #25, available in comic book stores on Wednesday, November 18th, features an infiltration of Alexa Lukin’s Madripoor base by Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter. This dynamic duo stunned readers with their otherworldly chemistry in both battle and love for many issues. And they’ll surprise readers more in this thrilling issue full of action, betrayal, and unexpected outcomes.
This issue mostly follows Sharon, Steve, and the rest of the team’s efforts to free the Daughters of Liberty. Readers enjoy a fully laid out rescue plan, which is complete with stealth, sniping, and espionage.
Ta-Nehisi Coates’s script is set up beautifully—by giving Sharon control of the narrative voice, the reader enjoys an intricate look at the relationship dynamics in play. It’s through this process that we learn more about Alexa’s history with the Daughters. And watching Sharon seek out Peggy and reclaim her organization’s legacy in this issue is awe-inspiring.
Leonard Kirk’s penciling and ink work, Matt Milla’s’s coloring, and VC’s Joe Caramagna’s lettering made for excellent visual storytelling. Each hero on Sharon and Steve’s team is drawn uniquely, from Sam Wilson’s sleek, sharp winged uniform to Bucky Barnes’s buffed physique. In addition, the characters’ relatively bright hues are contrasted beautifully against mysterious dark blue, purple, and black shades. We also enjoyed Sharon’s bright yellow dialogue boxes set against these backdrops, which helped emphasize her speech.
CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 is the culmination of multiple character building issues for Sharon. We were thrilled to see how engaging of a character she’s become.
