Requiem (Parts 1 & 2)

Originally, I picked up this Trade Paperback when I first got into comic book coloring. Over at Deviant Art, Tim Townsend had posted a lot of pages from the Homeland run. Since I never bought the original issues, I didn't have a frame of reference when it came to coloring the pages. So, I ended up going to the local comic book shop and getting the TPB. I've had the book for maybe 5-6 years...and never read it...till now.

I'm a HUGE Chris Bachalo fan from his time on Steampunk, Death, X-Men, Generation X and Spider-Man. But if I'm being totally honest here, I think him and Captain America was a bad match from the start. The book itself is a very boring read and the art just does not deliver in the sense that you're getting a typical, kick-ass Bachalo book. There is hardly any action at all, and when there is, it's lackluster to say the least.

There are additional issues to pad out the TPB: The Bucky Issue, which is also by Bachalo and is by far the best of the bunch. Fantastic art and storytelling here. Love it. Another storyline; Requiem is by Eddie Campbell with Stewart McKinney. This is just downright awful and the writing to me is pretty stupid.

Overall, I'm just disappointed in the book as a whole. The best parts of the TPB and the series were the covers (and The Bucky Issue) done by Bachalo. These are siiiiiiiiiiick.

But I can't recommend this book to anyone as it's something that I will never read again and most likely will never bother looking at again...with exception of said covers. The above image is of the TPB cover, minus the Text.
