Writer confirms title's cancellation.
Source: ‘Heartbroken’ Latour & Klein bid farewell to ‘Winter Soldier’
Though he only recently started his run on Marvel's Winter Soldier title this past February (with issue #15), writer Jason Latour broke the sad news on his blog that the title will be cancelled with June's issue #19.
WINTER SOLDIER'S END
On the cancellation of WINTER SOLDIER with issue #19:
Well, I won't lie, after spending the last 9 months or so living in Bucky Barnes's skin, I'm a little heart broken. He's grown to be a very special character to me, maybe my favorite Marvel character ever, and I felt I could've written his story for years. The opportunity to do so came at a very trying time in my life and really helped me through some tough stuff, so in it's way it's very personal work. I hope that shows.
Latour goes on to thank the fans and his collaborators in the blog entry.
Series artist Nic Klein also thanked the fans and provided a "parting gift" of artwork.
It will be interesting to see where the Winter Soldier character will be in April 2014, when the sequel to the Captain America film (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) arrives in theaters.
