Comics Roundup for 8/27/11

Daredevil #2 - While this didn't impress me as much as the first issue, it was good enough to keep me wanting more, especially because of the artwork of Paolo Rivera. Captain America makes an appearance, and the confrontation is left unresolved as the main storyline takes over by the second half. I hope that's not the last we've seen of Cap, as there seems to be some potential for drama considering that DD has a lot of atoning to do.

Captain America #2 - Just like DD #2, this one wasn't quite as cool as the first issue, but it's still pretty good. In this case, it's the artwork of Steve McNiven that pulls it along. It looks like we're going into some kind of trippy dream world for the newt issue. I'm rarely a fan of those types of stories, but hopefully we can see something new and interesting happen with this one.

Avengers #16 - Go figure that a Fear Itself crossover issue would be the one to finally have Steve Rogers deal with the death of Bucky Barnes. (Or is he dead? I'm not the only one who's skeptical.) Basically it doesn't do much to further the overall plot of the crossover, but we at least get to see a reaction on the part of Steve as he goes after The Red Skull, only to be led into a trap. (Obviously he can't stop her, as that will have to be dealt with in Fear Itself).
