Another very strong issue of Winter Soldier, featuring some very exciting action and a lot of plot-thickening. Seriously, how thick is the Lucia Von Bardas’ evil plan? Wheels within wheels. I loved the Doom-on-Doom fight, with Brubaker excelling himself with the pompous dialogue of Doom. I also really liked the fight between Bucky and Arkady, it was brilliantly drawn by Guice. Hell, everything in this book is brilliantly drawn by Guice, he’s really upped his game and given this book a truly unique look. So now it looks like Von Bardas plans on firing some Latverian nukes, but where is she aiming them? The US? Avengers Tower? Who knows?

A better book than Captain America, in my opinion.

What I loved about this issue, and last issue as well, was just how much of a threat Doom comes across as. Having Doom seem as dangerous as he does adds to the atmosphere of threat that Lucia Von Bardas plan creates.
Thank you Troy for the sig

I love this book. The story is a fun mix of classic Cold War espionage and weird Marvel villains. This is maybe even pulpier than Bru's Fatale.
More than that, Guice's art is turning this book into something really, really special. It's like Jim Steranko and Sean Phillips joined forces to create the most atmospheric and mind-altering interior art in comics today.
I hope this Bru-Guice collaboration lasts for a very long time and that eventually it includes some independent projects.
