Winter Soldier #1 review
Winter Soldier just in time for Captain America: Winter Soldier. I assume though that this storyline has little to nothing to do with the upcoming movie.
Winter Soldier #1 “The Bitter March” also has little to do with the Winter Soldier himself. I’d actually call it more of a Nick Fury title than anything. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, the story of Fury and Agent Ran, his partner in crime, infiltrating a Hydra compound in 1966 is full of spy, espionage goodness. It really makes me want to see Nick Fury in that James Bond role.
Rick Remender, obviously one of Marvel Comics masterminds, nails Winter Soldier #1. What a spot on comic, besides the actual Winter Soldier appearing in only the last 6 pages, the book is a fantastic build up to just how dangerous the Winter Soldier is. Even the mighty Nick Fury doesn’t know what to expect.
Winter Soldier #1 is a foundation building book, but I have a feeling you wont be seeing much more of Hydra, and a lot more of the Winter Soldier. I will admit though, I enjoy Fury’s unyielding confidence over Winter Soldier’s badassery any day.
