Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | January 14, 2016


Part 2 of the return of Bucky. I already expressed my opinions on his return in general, so let me just talk about this collection.


Basically, after two full volumes of build-up, Cap facing of with Bucky is done in a flash. There is a very abbreviated confrontation, a little deus ex machine, and it is over. That’s it.

The story as a whole. with both books taken together, is pretty solid, but Cable Jr. is still not a very compelling character.

There is an interesting side discussion: which comic characters add more to comics by being dead, than they do by being alive?

Bucky, Uncle Ben, Gwen Stacey, Abin Sur, Kryptonians (all of them who aren’t Superman and Supergirl), Speedy (from Love & Rockets)… just off the top of my head.
