Rusty's World

Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | January 13, 2016

CaptainAmiericaWinterSoldier1

This one isn’t new, but I re-read it because I just got Volume 2 and I am him reading because I am quite sick.

Here is a case where the book itself can be good even though I don’t like the result. I think bringing back Bucky was a mistake. The Winter Soldier character is not really worth ripping up a legacy like they did. Add to that killing Jack Monroe, he was a perfectly good Bucky analogue (though misused over the years), and I wasn’t down with this decision at all. I’m still not.

Having said THAT, in itself, this book is quite good. Brubaker shows the underbelly of the world quite well and having Cap stir around there creates in interesting contrast (which was missing when they did the same thing in Bucky’s own book).

Good read. I am looking forward to reading the next volume.
