Hey,

I bought the first 2 issues and will likely get the rest of the series. If I had to pick again, though, I'd probably "trade-wait" it since its self-contained anyway.

As for the book itself, I like the art and the storyline so far. However, the soldier in Afghanistan is the main character and Cap is really a supporting character in the book, so if you're looking for a lot of Capcentric action, this isn't the book for you

Agree with this critique, so far, but also want more Capcentric content. It is a curious dilemma for me. The cover for #3 looks too posercentric to help me decide so will probably check the CAMB for comments after it's release.

Continuing from the post below review #2:

it seems that the series is indeed immediately following the assassination after seeing the SPOILER(?) solicit wording. This is intriguing revelation if it's presented well - lots of is-Cap-really-dead potential info!:
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE CHOSEN # 6
The Story: The twilight of Captain America’s life draws to a close. David Morrell—the best-selling author of First Blood and creator of Rambo—and Mitch Breitweiser (DRAX) bring you to the bittersweet final chapter of this Marvel Knights story in the vein of SPIDER-MAN: REIGN and SILVER SURFER: REQUIEM. Captain America is dying—but with his last gasps of life, he will select his replacement. Can James Newman, a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, rise to the challenge and overcome his fear? Can anyone else?

Thanks guys for the input and comments. I will wait for the trade to come out. I finally read the first issue at the comics store and it looked pretty good to me.
