We have a thread to talk about the new book spinning out of this, but not for the issue itself, so:

I guess we should have known he wasn’t actually dead, Fraction was being a little too glib in interviews about how he finally got to have ‘the Red Skull kill Captain America’ for it to be true. But this was still a surprise, and the announcement of a new Winter Soldier series is just great, I’ll certainly be in line for that. This was basically an issue of Brubaker’s Captain America, and it kept up the level of quality we’re used to. Brubaker and Guice are a great team, so it was great to see them together again. I do like the idea of Bucky’s return being risky, he could drop dead at any minute because of the Infinity Formula, so it’s not a clean resurrection, the ‘death’ still has impact. Not much else to say really, just that I hope next week’s Thor epilogue doesn’t reveal he’s not dead either, because then both the major deaths from Fear Itself would be null and void after only 2 weeks.

Wouldn't surprise me at all.

I enjoyed Fear Itself, but it seems to have no ramifications and looks like it will end up being a self-contained event.

Which is frankly the one thing I like about FI (other than Immonen).

What annoys me is this: I have both Captain America and Captain America & Bucky on my pull, which gets sent to me monthly by my mail order guy. This was not on my pull because I wasn't getting Fear Itself. In other words, this is an issue of Captain America that I won't be getting because it has a different title. And no, I can't just pop in and get one because the nearest LCS is about a five-hour drive from here.

Kinda less than two weeks as the Mighty Thor solicit kinda hints he is not really dead dead.

So will Nul and Void team up?

This was really good. Loved the art.

I can't fucking wait for Winter Soldier. That is honestly the book I've always wanted from Marvel.

Regarding next week's Thor:

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Apparently he IS dead and the story will continue in some sort of god afterlife. At least that's what I've stringed together from the solicits of the upcoming few issues.

Perhaps his coporeal form is dead (burned) but if he is trying not to be eaten by the Demogorge so I don't consider him dead dead
