This book is the sequel to Captain America books "Winter Soldier: Ultimate Collecion" and "Red Menace: Ultimate Collection". Even though this book isn't numbered, Death Of Captain America is volume 3 in the series. In fact the spine designs and overall interior of all three editions match nicely together.
A WORD OF ADVICE: Captain America #22 to 24 and the Winter Soldier - Winter Kills One-Shot all happen during the Marvel Comics "Civil War" crossover event, and #25 is the direct aftermath of it. This Death Of Captain America volume reads quite well on its own, but if you want a better context of it you should definitely get the Civil War TPB or at least read a detailed plot synopsis to know what happens.
Death Of Captain America deals, of course, with what the title of the book infers. This is a very long storyline that started with the previously mentioned Winter Soldier saga, that reintroduced long time dead character Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers' old sidekick during World War II, and turned him into a real badass with the use of smart retcons. In this book we see Bucky taking on the mantle of Captain America and fighting the complex conspiracies of the Red Skull and Arnim Zola to take political control over the USA, with the aid of Sharon Carter, Black Widow and the Falcon.Read more ›
But this collection, man. One of my most treasured comics. Brubaker does an incredible job retconning Steve Roger's story pre deep sea freeze in a way that fits well with some older versions and still brings in fresh elements. I read somewhere that after reading Bucky's death as a child, Brubaker decided when he grew up he had to bring him back. I'm so glad he did. His run with Captain America was truly incredible, and the artists he has had around the Civil War event were really great. The Red Skull is truly creepy, the politics are truly interesting, and I loved the appearances of all sorts of other greats; Sharon Carter, Natasha Romanoff, Sam Wilson, Tony Stark, etc. It's so beautiful, so engaging, and so sad. I'm not ashamed to admit I got teary a few times.
TL;DR Read Winter Soldier, Red Menace, Civil War, and then this. Really nice job, Brubaker.
