This book continues it’s excellent run, this is so gritty I almost forget it’s Brubaker working in the Marvel Universe, this could easily be up there with the best of his Indie work. This issue features Bucky and Jasper Sitwell desperately searching for Black Widow, who’s been captured by Leo. I loved the pages with Bucky just beating the shit out of a whole lot of lowlifes in an attempt to find a lead, any lead. The art from Michael Lark was just brilliant, you could tell so much just from Bucky’s facial expressions. Leo continues to be a great villain, his plan is coming into focus now, and the way he engineered getting Natasha into the Ballet was great, you think he’s going to just sniper the original Ballerina, but no, that’s too obvious, he engineers a car-crash. Great stuff. I also liked that this issue gave some more depth to Jasper Sitwell, he’s going to be a great supporting character for this book. Of course he’ll probably die next issue now.
