Another very good issue of Winter Soldier, this title has very quickly become one of my favourite Marvel comics. This issue was most notable for it’s art in my book, Guice really is stretching his legs here, and having a lot of fun with the layouts, the page where Bucky and Black Widow teleported/parachuted into the Latverian Embassy was brilliant, the angles of the panels really made it stand out. The story itself continues to develop nicely, Brubaker gave us a recap of who Lucia Von Bardas is (and the events of Secret War) without it being too expository, and we saw what her real plan is, to frame Doctor Doom for a heinous crime so she can get back to power. Brubaker of course knows his Doom (If you haven’t read it, track down his and Pablo Raimondi’s ‘Books Of Doom’ mini, which is an excellent origin) and it’s great to see him write the character again. I also really like how this series is exploring the nature of an espionage world post-Cold War, the scene where the re-awakened sleeper agent was killed was excellent, as was the way Red Ghost explained that the war was not really over. Marvel Comics were always a lot of fun with evil Red Russkies as bad guys, and it’s cool to have that back.
