Good conclusion. I'm really excited to see Bravo go down. More importantly, Brubaker's last issue is probably gonna be incredible.
I'm not Captain America, but I wish I was.
I'll miss D-Man. He was neither the brightest bulb on the string nor the stablest of personalities, but one could never doubt his sincerity or his heart of gold. RIP, Dennis.

Now bring back Dennis!
If I were to complain about D-Man's D-mise, it would be that the artist seems to have Sharon only 20-30 feet away from them, raising the question of whether or not a kill shot was necessary, or could she have hit elbows or knees?
Well, knees, no. Cap was in the line of fire for them, but she seemed close enough to hit his arms, causing him to drop the shield.
Had she been depicted as further away, shoot-to-kill might have seemed the viable only option.
It's a minor quibble at best, but hey, it's the internet, and fish gotta swim.
It was a gloomy issue, but while Cap is down he is not out. It seems he is building a lot of anger and the resolve Cap showed on the last page has me excited for his eventual showdown with Bravo
Why did you think it was necessary to kill D-Man? Emotional impact? You thought he was a worthless character? You found the character was good, but had reached a creative deadend, and decided to put him out of his misery? Better dead at your hand than mishandled by someone else? It will somehow be important down the road?
I mean, I got Jack Monroe. Didn't agree with it, still haven't forgiven you for it, but I got it. You were bringing in the original Bucky back (something that I never thought could be done right, but you proved me wrong), you wanted him to take out the stand in. But Dennis? I hope at least he gets a little bit more respect post mortem then I think you did give Jack, though (as sad and touching as his death story was).
Other than that, thank you for a great run. Have to admit that I lost some intrest after Steve returned, but these are tough times, and I have to spend my hard-earned money on only what I'm absolutely loving, still you gave me plenty of enjoyment with Captain America. I'm also a big fan of what you did in Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire. Wish you the best on your future endeavours.
Not quite sure why people are not feeling this issue. It made me realize that it's not so much Ed's writing that's been off in the current run, but the art and colour choices.
I've been "meh" for a few issues now, but everything this month clicked. This felt like another classic Bru issue of Cap with balls to the wall action, emotional investment, and layers of intrigue.

DC: Azzarello's WonderWoman
Valiant: X-O Manowar

I'm not even entirely sure Dennis is dead. If Ed wishes to correct, fine, but he tends to REALLY overkill when he kills people. Make extra sure you know they're kacked. Two shots to the back, if the dialogue had just said he was in the hospital, it would be totally believable. I'm wondering if the death isn't a fakeout to draw out the baddies.
