Winter Soldier Bitter March #1 Review

Go back to 1966 and take a peak behind the Winter Soldier myth.

The Good

The pacing on this book is great! Nothing in this book is rushed and it almost feels like Ian Flemming had a hand in writing this one. The cover art looks and feels like a 60's era spy book, which this story more or less is. Agent Ran Shen is written to perfection and I wish he was somehow able to be used in more modern books.

The Not So Good

The bait and switch of the Winter Soldier on the cover and the real star, Nick Fury, inside the book was quite a let down. I was looking forward to getting a bit more insight on Bucky Barnes during his time as the Winter Soldier so seeing Fury take center stage instead of seeing how being the Winter Soldier affected Bucky almost made me close the book and stop reading.

The Bottom Line

Although this is a great book, it is probably not the book you think of when you hear the title. I'm not sure if it was intentional, Marvel trying to get fans of the new Captain America film to pick this book up, or accidental but either way it still stings a bit when you are shown one thing and given another. The art is great in this book with many James Bonds-esque sequences drawn to perfection. Fans of spy thrillers or Nick Fury should pick this one up, anyone looking for a Bucky Barnes adventure should skip this comic.
