IMHO, Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America
peaked during this era and "Reborn" will make much more sense if you've read TDoCA first. Actually, "Reborn", while being the culmination of most of Brubaker's plot threads to that point, isn't his best work on the run.
Right ho. Thank you.
What I'll do is download the first issue of the 'Death of...' series for my phone, and see how it reads. If it's cool, I'll pick up the full paperback.
