Brubaker and Lark, just kicking out some awesome jams. This was another great issue of Winter Soldier, and most I’ve enjoyed a Brubaker Cap-book since before Steve came back, it’s the perfect mix of gritty cold-war thriller, and Marvel superhero story. In this issue, Bucky and Black Widow continue their hunt for Leonid, and more of his seemingly-random plan starts to come to light. It’s really cool how this book is really exploring the murky past of the Marvel Universe version of the Soviet Union, all their freaky plans and Red Rooms and things. I’ve often felt that a lot of Marvel’s characters such as Iron Man suffered a little when the Cold War ended, so it’s cool to see an enemy that was once central to the world come back to prominence, out of the past. This issue also delivered an awesome action sequence with Bucky and Natasha’s attack on the motor-home, that was wonderfully drawn by Lark, and I loved how Brubaker reminded us of how Bucky originally died/became Winter Soldier, the sense of history in this book is not just coming from the Soviets, but also the characters. I’m guessing that Leonid was in love or had some kind of relationship with Black Widow back in the day, but I’m sure Bru will still find some way to surprise me.

Daredevil says you're wrong, but just barely.

I still think Uncanny X-Force is Marvel's best but Winter Soldier isn't far behind.

If not for the Otherworld hiccup, I would agree. As is, Winter Soldier has been perfect.

I hope Novokov survives the end of this story. He makes for a perfect arch nemesis for Bucky.

Yeah, the Otherworld arc was disappointing but, for me, that was due to the art more than the writing.
