First Look: BUCKY BARNES: THE WINTER SOLDIER #1

He has a new role and a new mission.

This October, James Buchanan Barnes steps into his new role as intergalactic protector in BUCKY BARNES: THE WINTER SOLDIER #1, the out-of-this-world series from rising star creators Ales Kot & Marco Rudy. Following the shocking finale of Original Sin, what has the Winter Soldier more driven than ever before?

Be there when the master assassin takes on his new role as the “man on the wall,” protecting the Earth from extraterrestrial and extra-dimensional threats by any means necessary. Inherited from his predecessor Nick Fury, Bucky will go to any lengths to accomplish his new mission. From the depths of Limbo to the far reaches of space to the hallowed halls of Asgard – no challenge is too great for the Winter Soldier. But he is not alone in his quest – former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Daisy Johnson a.k.a. Quake is along for the ride, and she brings her own set of skills and expertise to Bucky’s new shadow war.

He’s toppled dictators and foiled terrorist plots, but how can one man measure up to aliens, demons, monsters and gods? Clearly they’ve never met the Winter Soldier! A new mission begins this October, and the Winter Soldier brings his years of battle-hardened experience to the Marvel Universe’s grandest stage!

Don’t miss one moment of the pulse-pounding spy espionage action when Kot & Rudy go intergalactic and explore the man beneath the mask in BUCKY BARNES: THE WINTER SOLDIER #1 – hitting comic shops and digital devices this October!

This. Only, I will check out at least the first issue, to be on the safe side.

Posted by Maluvin

That's an amazing cover design. Really like it.

Posted by micah

I love the premise. The artwork is not exactly my style. But seeing Bucky fight Gods, alien races, and Demons is enough to convince me to at least try the first two issues.

@slimj87d: What do you think of Bucky's redesign/updated look? Seems they decided to incorporate his movie look along with keeping his comic look like the domino mask.

Posted by Sovereign91001

I've never really been a fan of painted art in comics, I most likely won't be picking this up.

Edited by SlimJ87D

@war_killer: I'm not a big fan of the mask. The art is still tripping me out like someone on drugs. I'm interested to see where this goes.

I like him better with short hair though like in the invaders or Brubaker run.

Posted by Cap10nate

I'm very interested to see where this goes. Bucky is one of my favorite characters so I hope that this is a good book

Whaite a minite - Quake was Shield director? o_O

Damn

Posted by bobgillinger

Is he carrying swords? Cause I really hope he's carrying swords on his back.

Posted by War Killer

@slimj87d: Yeah the art is going to take some getting use to, it's really out there. Though that could actually be good when exploring strange new worlds, as they most likely will look way weirder than what we're use to, not to mention the other dimensions Bucky may travel to like Limbo.

I like that they kept the domino mask, it seems they may be trying to have different add-ons that Bucky may wear for different situations. It also makes sense that when going to places like Asgard Bucky would want to keep his identity a secret, thus explaining the face-cover. The hood is also an interesting addition which I'm curious how they'll incorporate into his look.

I agree with you about the long hair, he looks better with it short.

The Bucky Barnes book absolutely no one was clamoring for!

Well, Phobos predicted that she would go places. He just didn't predict that it wouldn't last more than 5 minutes.

Seriously, she was director for 5 minutes, before Hill was back in charge.

Except for everybody that's a fan of him... obviously.

Posted by SlimJ87D

@jonny_anonymous: yeah, let's not forget that he was only reinvented about 10 years ago and made it into a successful movie also.

Posted by Transformers1024

Looks like the perfect book to replace both Green Arrow and Hawkeye

Dang, man, I love Bucky, but this seems way too much up the same alley as Red Hood and The Outlaws-- Street-level former sidekicks who get vaulted to the other side of the comic book spectrum with the cosmic levelers. Not that that's a bad thing for Red Hood and his pals, but I feel like that's just not right for Bucky. He should have a title with inspiration from Die Hard, James Bond, and maybe some Indiana Jones to mix it up all rolled up into one super cool burrito.

Also, I'm not too excited about that art

Posted by Akindoodle

The art looks very pulpy Sci-Fi. I like. Also, the plot direction is so far out there for a character like the Winter Soldier that I want to check it out. It looks fun

Posted by Dark_Guyver

I'll definitely give this a try!

they're actually going to use those designs from the variant page? i hope not, i love Winter Soldier current look. They give him that mask then he'll be stepping in Star Lords territory. Not gonna lie at first glance i thought i was looking at Nightwing in those variant designs.

Posted by TheMantisShrimp

I'm gonna enjoy the hell out of this, although I have a feeling it won't last as long I would like it too. But congrads to Marvel for putting out such unique and stylized art on book that with a fairly popular character, especially after Cap 2.

Posted by longbowhunter

I like that this take on Winter Soldier is pretty much a 180 from Brubaker's. Hope this good, I'll be giving the first issue a go.

Posted by FearTheLiving

Said it before say it again, I'm loving that art. Seems an odd choice for a Winter Soldier book but still amazing so it's not going to put me off the book in any way.

Well the design is straight from his look in The Winter Soldier movie. So I wouldn't say they were copying Star-Lord as their masks look completely different. Not to mention that they've already used the movie-look in The Bitter March mini-series.

Personally it would make sense that Bucky would want to be better hide his identity, considering that his current work probably wouldn't sit well with most.

Edited by PowerPlug

I'll pick at least 3 issues to give it a fair shot.

That art is a bit too trippy, but I can appreciate it. Especially that fourth page.

Posted by Mangakid1995

Bucky and Quake should be fun and if were lucky we will also get Mockingbird in this series after the end of the last volume of Secret Avengers.

Posted by Mucklefluga

What the art!?

Posted by Perfect 10

was going to pick up the series anyways for buck but with daisy and the direction setup with the original sin finale: excited

Posted by MartianManhunterIsBetterThanCyborg

This kind of trippy art would suit someone like Dr. Strange

Posted by lagozzino

Whoah, that's interior art!? Took me a few seconds to realize I wasn't still looking at covers xD
Those pages are gorgeous!

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

Really digging the premise of this book and love that Quake is apart of it. The art, though beautiful, doesn't seem right for a Bucky book but I'll wait to see it for myself before making a final judgment.

Edited by RoboShark

Seems to me the Artwork is a nod to the old 70's psychedelic Nick Fury. I'm guessing Buck-O took his place. (I'm way behind)

Edited by kleo_94

Not a fan of Bucky's new look, though...

I mean, I don't mind his movie look - in fact, I adore it, but what's good for Sebastian Stan and for the movie isn't necessarily the same for the comic book.

Like mentioned earlier: I dislike Bucky in long hair. His short hair from Brubaker's run and from All New Invaders is great.

(This hood and -whatever he carries on his back- reminded me much of Batman's sidekicks, especially Nightwing with his sticks.)

The art is... Confusing. It's beautiful, but not quite my style. I just want this run to be good.

Posted by jackbensley777

in space? no

Posted by Overlander

I loved Marco Rudy's work on Marvel Knights: Spider-Man, but this looks...not as compelling.

I'll be sure to check out the title on MDCU to see if it changes my mind.

I agree with all of this.

Posted by VanderSEXXX

Hmmm... might join in on this one. Barnes' new status quo might be the peak direction I may have wanted to see as an intergalactic assassin.

Posted by ShadowSwordmaster

I'm going to check it out, the art looks insane.

Posted by HushoftheWind

@kleo_94: agreed, i know Buck came in with long hair in the beginning but like you i think its better if he wore it short. I also think he looks too much like Grayons in those pics. Oddly enough Grayson is sporting short hair in series now, guess he donated his hair to Barnes lol.

Posted by lukehero

Seems like a fun ride, maybe a spin off movie or TV Show in the WS future? Need some brand spanking new cosmic material to push the edge a bit? I like it. Can't wait to read this and see where it leads.

Edited by Teerack

I was looking forward to this so much and now I'm sad it looks ugly :(

Definitely have to check this out.

It's not really, the books is still a dark espionage book, just with a bigger scope.
