Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ed Brubaker's prolific run on Captain America continues with The Man With No Face storyarc, which finds good 'ol Bucky getting more comfortable in his new role as Captain America. Keeping his rekindled relationship with Black Widow together while he fights crime and gains some acceptance from the superhero community in this post-Secret Invasion world, Cap learns that some old enemies from his checkered past as the Winter Soldier are lining him up in their sights. This leads to some dynamite action developments, as well as an entertaining team-up with Namor as they scramble to save the legacy of their old World War II comrade, the original Human Torch. While The Man With No Face doesn't reach the same kind of brilliance that Brubaker's Death of Captain America trilogy did, he still manages to weave a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable ride that is loaded with equal parts action, intelligence, intrigue, and espionage. I really didn't like the idea of a non-Steve Rogers Captain America, but the more that Brubaker fleshes out Bucky, the more I dig it. The artwork from Steve Epting, Luke Ross, and Butch Guice is impressive as well, as all parties involved continue to be what may go down in comic history as being the definitive Captain America team. All in all, if you've been reading Brubaker's run on Captain America, there isn't any reason to stop, and if you haven't read any of his run yet, you are doing yourself quite the disservice. Mainstream superhero comics rarely get better than this.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sorry for the title of my review, for some reason the title of this book reminds me of that line from the Misfits song "The Fiend Without a Face", a title which would also fit one of the villains that this book is named after. This book is the next chapter in Ed Brubaker's visionary & groundbreaking Captain America run, continuing after his epic "Death of Captain America" saga, and continues the saga of James "Bucky" Barnes in his new role as Captain America. Set a bit after Bucky's(as the new Captain America) victory against the Red Skull & squashing his elaborate plot, the world & some of its heroes(particularly the unregistered ones) are taking notice of Bucky as the new Captain America, and beginning to accept him in this role. However, despite his determination to continue the heroic legacy of the original Sentinel of Liberty, Bucky remains haunted by his dark & bloody past as the Soviet-programmed espionage agent/assassin known as the Winter Soldier. Haunted & kept awake at night by these unlocked memories, Bucky feels that he must reconcile his corrupted & violent past with his current role as a heroic icon, and try to lay those ghosts to rest so he can honor the heroic mantle that has been passed to him. However, this isn't an easy task, as Bucky finds himself haunted by literal ghosts from his past- individuals affected by his actions as the Winter Soldier- that through a chance encounter with one of the original Cap's most frequent & colorful nemeses, learns what few have: that the new Captain America & the dreaded Cold War legend known as the Winter Soldier are one & the same.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Even a mediocre Brubaker Captain America story is better than most other comic books out there, but that doesn't change the fact that these stories are decidedly mediocre. The art suffers from only a brief appearance by Steve Epting, who is the best artist at presenting Brubaker's ideas with the beauty and intensity with which they are written, and a fairly run-of-the-mill superhero story. Bucky spends six issues breaking in his new Captain America costume by fighting someone he once saved as a member of the Invaders and wronged as the Winter Soldier - which is a fine idea, really, but it doesn't work well in execution. The new characters Brubaker creates for the tale are not compelling, although there is a nice moment when the mad scientist dramatically reveals his master plan. And in this arc, the Black Widow is relegated to a role of existing only to keep calling Bucky back to bed unless she's following along two steps behind whatever plan he's working, which is a waste of a character whose schemes and strengths have come through well in earlier volumes of this series. A Brubaker Cap misstep isn't nearly as bad as most other writer-character pairings, but this is certainly a misstep.

Ed Brubaker continues his amazing run on Captain America. He makes old villains relevant - Batroc the Leaper is a bad ass. The Man with No Face is a real threat and Professor Chin becomes an important player in the development of the Captain America legend. The story of Bucky / Winter Soldier coming to terms with his transition to Captain America flows without effort and it all seems appropriate. Not an easy feat in the world of comics. Ed has made Bucky so interesting that I don't care if Steve Rogers ever returns from "the dead".

Format: Paperback
Wow! Who thought that I would have ever typed that. I've said before that Ed Brubaker did the impossible. Not only did he kill off Captain America, but he replaced him with the recently returned from the dead (or so everyone believed) James "Bucky" Barnes. It sounds crazy and it shouldn't work but this trade proves how good it can be. Bucky has so much hidden history since World War I up to the present that there is so much potential. I love it! The art by Steve Epting, Luke Ross, and Butch Guice all complemented the story so well. Overall a really great read with the only drawback being be the less than stellar villains.
