CBR Review: Captain America #619

I recently reviewed Captain America #619 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Marvel may have their broader strokes planned out well in advance, but, sometimes, things don’t line up too neatly. Ed Brubaker has lamented that the finale of the Buck Barnes Captain America didn’t come out before Fear Itself #3 and, while annoying, what’s more bothersome is how the end of 'Gulag' seems rushed and doesn’t satisfy completely. Unless the first issue of Captain America and Bucky bridges the gap between this issue and Fear Itself, that gap is a glaring error. Especially when the issue basically puts forth the argument that Barnes can never be Captain America again, for good reasons and, yet, there he is in Marvel’s big event in full costume."
