Captain America & Deadpool find themselves in hot water after being caught trespassing on Latverian soil.  Dr. Doom doesn’t take kindly to interlopers and puts them on trial in the opening pages of Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3 by Tochi Onyebuchi.  After revealing the plot to smuggle vibranium through Latveria, Doom lets Sam Wilson go with a warning not to interfere in his territory again.

Meanwhile, Falcon is taking care of his cousin who they rescued in issue 1, and investigating how and why she and the others were targeted.  As the mystery deepens for both Captain America and Falcon, the web starts to get more tangled with vibranium sitting at the heart of it all.  And who knows how Wakanda will react to that!

The Story

Tochi Onyebuchi doesn’t disappoint with Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3.  A master of the craft, Onyebuchi juggles the two different stories with ease as they’re set on a collision course with Wakanda and the White Wolf.  This issue is a page-turner that keeps readers engaged from page one and is a great addition to the overarching story that Onyebuchi is telling.  It will be interesting to see where Sam Wilson heads next after the bombshell at the end of the issue.

The Art

R.B Silva, Zè Carlos, and Jesus Arburtov are an incredible team as they work on the art for Captain America.  Silva and Carlos help elevate the intensity of the story through harsh lines and sharp edges.  From the authoritarian power of Doom’s throne room to the crowd of the Wakandan Forever protestors, there is an energy that fills each panel and helps to keep the pacing of the issue.  Meanwhile, Arburtov utilizes contrasting color palettes to help differentiate the setting of each theme.

Final Thoughts

Onyebuchi is a phenomenal storyteller and works his magic as he lays out the mystery for Captain America and Falcon.  Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3 sets up the issues to come as the heroes are thrown into the deep end.
