This new series of Captain America is the reason why I love Captain America.
Dan Gonzalez
The artwork is spectacular and accents the writing (or perhaps visa versa... perhaps best just to state the Team that put this together is amazing).
JimmyJames
Apart from Brubaker's writing, the other bright spot is the amazing artwork provided by both Steve Epting and Mike Perkins.

I know that hyperbole lends itself to massive hating, but in this case, it's pretty much undeniable. I should say that Ed Brubaker is the best writer who is currently working on a regular basis. He's a master at pacing, dialogue, characterization, intrigue and action. He's the perfect comic writer, essentially. He never dumbs it down; he aims for the smartest reader out there. Brubaker has written several different series in the past, many of them with a pulp-noir bent (GOTHAM CENTRAL, BATMAN, and the reinvention of CATWOMAN as far as major titles) but he also did brilliant spy-noir work within the Wildstorm Universe with the now-classic series SLEEPER, and now he brings many of the same sensibilities to Captain America, a character who, after floundering for years, has been brought back into the spotlight of the Marvel U. and he's never been better.

The biggest problem that Brubaker faced in "The Winter Soldier" arc was not just reintroducing Cap in a new and darker world while still being the shining Sentinel of Liberty. It's all in the resurrection of a long-dead character. Brubaker staked his whole future in the comics industry by resurrecting one of the great untouchable characters in the Marvel Universe.

Obviously, comic characters are killed and resurrected all the time so it pretty much becomes rote. But there were two characters in the Marvel U that were untouchable as far as bringing back from the dead: Uncle Ben Parker (you bring him back, you invalidate his death, and the reason Peter Parker becomes Spider-Man), and James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes, Cap's teen sidekick who 'died' in the explosion that also hurled Steve Rogers into the suspended animation he was in since 1945. And what Brubaker does is perhaps the best and cleverest resurrection in comics history.

After playing Ultimate Alliance and getting into the Avengers, I decided I had to learn more about Cap and Bucky - this TPB is absolutely brilliant and has made me a huge Captain America fan. It has also made me a huge Brubaker fan with snappy, edgy writing that adds a tremendous depth to the characters we've known for many, many years. The artwork is spectacular and accents the writing (or perhaps visa versa... perhaps best just to state the Team that put this together is amazing). I'm a 45 yr old Marvel fan and this is one of my all-time favorite books! Well worth adding to your collection!

I never knew much about Captain America growing up, and always thought he was a bit goofy. After seeing the movie that just came out, I had to learn more about him. This is a serious take on Cap. He didn't come off as goofy, and the whole book was very interesting. I read it in one sitting. A lot of nice cameos by other heroes and villans in this book. I really liked the idea of the Winter Soldier (I already knew his identity, won't spoil it for you), and the files showing how he became the Winter Soldier and the results of his missions were very interesting to me. Give this book a look. It will make a fan out of you. Only problem I had was that I hadn't ordered the next graphic novel after this one yet, so I had to wait a few days for the next one to come in!

Sometimes, being proven wrong is a good thing. And with this storyline, I am glad Ed Brubaker proved me wrong- something he would continually do through his long tenure on Captain America. Captain America has been one of- if not my absolute favorite- super-heroes- since I was three years old, and along with Thor, a character I read consistently. So, when a character has been an "old friend" of yours for years like that, you tend to be very protective of their history and continuity. So, when I first started hearing about the Winter Soldier storyline, and read through Wizard magazine and other sources that the Winter Soldier was going to be Bucky, I didn't exactly have the best reaction. I was like, "What are they thinking?" Don't get me wrong, I liked Bucky. I loved seeing him in flashback, and WW2 era stories, but I came from the Stan Lee school of thought: Bucky's death was the major tragedy in Cap's life. You take that away, you take away that sense of tragedy that is important and intrinsic to the character. I thought that bringing him back was a bad move, and a gimmick. However. when I picked up some of the issues to see what it was all about, this story that pretty much set the comics world on fire- I found myself not only proven VERY wrong, but enjoying every second of it! Ed Brubaker took away all the old comic reader cynicism I had and blew it away with the awesome story he was telling.Read more ›

This new series of Captain America is the reason why I love Captain America. Going back to the Steve Rogers' roots is what makes this incarnation of Captain America a formula for success... and why we had such a good Captain America movie.
