There's plenty of other treats, including the Captain America segment of the Acts of Vengeance event that sees Magneto squaring off against the Red Skull and Cap caught in the middle, but the centrepiece is undoubtedly the title story. The Bloodstone Hunt is a classic adventure romp that sees Cap and his would-be paramour Diamondback racing around the globe to find all the pieces of the mystical Bloodstone before Baron Zemo and Batroc's Brigade get their villainous paws on them. It's great fun, and a great character piece for Diamondback as she struggles to impress Cap while being thrown into ever-more perilous situations. Artist Kieron Dwyer has a great eye for characterful expressions, and he uses them to the full here.
Another fun aspect is that the twenty issues collected here nearly all have short back-up stories, starring members of the supporting cast like Battlestar and Vagabond, Walker's new identity as the US Agent, and even villains like the Cobra, Machinesmith and even the Red Skull himself. While all fairly inessential, they're a nice little bonus that makes the world of the comic feel richer.
Extras include the cover to the original Bloodstone Hunt TPB, a couple of Marvel Fanfare pin-ups, two Gruenwald columns from Marvel Age, and a new afterword by Ralph Macchio. This is another fun, solid run of Cap's adventures and it's great to have it collected like this.
