Review:

"Cap Corps is able to boast consistently detailed and engaging art" -- IGN.Com

"A Cap story for every Captain America fan." -- ComicBookResources.com

"Stern's writing is as sharp and smart as the artwork, which means it's perfect." -- ComicsBulletin.com

"Phil Briones infuses the Captains with athletic energy. Bucky kicks ass on the streets of Manhattan. The young Captain takes the lead and comports himself with the sincerity of the original. Shannon Carter gracefully somersaults through the air. John Walker brutalizes his way through the stormtroopers, and with Roger Stern, Briones swiftly creates the ultimate goal of Captain America consolidated in the multiracial, big galoot from the future named Commander A. They represent idealism, optimism and the philosophy that one individual can change a future for the better." -- Ray Tate

"This shouldn't work. It's a story about 5 characters who are fundamentally the same in powers, costume and ethos. But, it does work. Despite the similarities all the Captain America corps are distinct individuals. Despite the time travel and lack of links to present continuity, it is nicely tied to what had gone before. There were pleasant surprises in the selection of enemies and some of their true identities. And the art by Philippe Briones was excellent, echoing John Byrne. Roger Stern delivered in all fronts as he has done for over 30 years. I shouldn't have been surprised." -- P. Fosten


"Roger Stern knows a thing or two about writing Captain America. So it only makes sense to have him write a Captain America or two. Well, maybe five. After all, what's better than taking a handful of disparate characters (or similar characters from disparate times/places) and tossing them together into a story? It's a Cap story for every Captain America fan ... you'll get your money's worth on this one." -- Doug Zawisza

"Roger Stern, when he's going to use a character, he researches the character inside and out. When Roger used American Dream in Captain America Corps, there was nothing in there that didn't match the character. He always does a fantastic job, any character he uses he gets the voice right, he gets the character's motivations right, he gets it all right." -- Ron Frenz
