The Winter Soldier Returns in New Series

Nobody should be surprised by this. Let the fun begin!

It was a sad an unfortunate day when WINTER SOLDIER ended. With the new Captain America movie coming out next year, it really shouldn't be a surprise to see the return of Bucky in comics. In February, we'll get to see the new (old) adventures of Bucky, courtesy of Rick Remender, in WINTER SOLDIER: THE BITTER MARCH.

A tortured and broken soul, Bucky Barnes spent most of his life in service to the enemy. Programmed to be ruthless and efficient killing machine, The Winter Soldier conducted countless assassinations and wetwork missions for the Soviet Union.

Set during the Cold War, Winter Soldier: The Bitter March follows Bucky on one of his most dangerous missions yet – one that pits him directly against S.H.I.E.L.D., HYDRA, and more! With Nick Fury missing and presumed dead, S.H.I.E.L.D. sends its top agent Ran Shen to retrieve two Nazi scientists who hold the key to winning the Cold War! But the Americans aren’t the only ones who want their secrets. The Soviets have dispatched their own deadly operative – The Winter Soldier!

His mission: acquire the scientists by any means neccessary – and kill them if they fall into the wrong hands!

Intrigue, adventure, romance, and murder are everywhere in this high-octane, pulse pounding, spy pulp thriller! And don’t miss the shocking conclusion that will shatter everything you knew about the life of modern-day Captain America! It all starts this February in Winter Soldier: The Bitter March #1!

Wait, is this a new ongoing or a mini-series?

I think "The Bitter March" is the title of the arc, since the cover itself doesn't say that anywhere on it. But then again in the description it says "the shocking conclusion" so... I guess we wait for further information.

alright, Bucky is back, good stuff! :)

Posted by Hawkguy

I really want to read this as a fan of both Bucky and Remender but another $3.99 title on top of the ones I'm already reading and planning to add, I just don't see it happening :(

@hawkguy: dont blame you man, i currently read cap and thats a bi-weekly 3.99 book!

Mini-Series IIRC

CRAP. I was thrilled to see this until I saw it was Remender. That guy just ain't my style.

Why is this a 399 book?

Posted by Mucklefluga

Set during the cold war, nice.

Posted by Hawkguy

Why is this a 399 book?

Because you get a digital code for the book, as with most Marvel books.

@ptigrusmagus: The chances of seeing a new book from Marvel, and likely DC, for less than $3.99 are pretty much none.

I love Winter Soldier, but I'm not sure how I feel about this taking place in the past. Definitely a wait and see book for me.

If only Remander didn't have his hands on the series, it'd have real potential.

At $3.99/issue, I may wait for this to hit Marvel Digital Unlimited.

these^ I didn't like his cap, so ill probably not like his bucky.

Posted by BR_Havoc

Remender writing a dark and moody story about a dark character I am shocked....His Cap has no charm and he seems so dead set on not wanting to be compared to Brubaker that he will just destroy all the hard work he put in on the book and I see this being much the same.

Posted by TDK_1997

Rick Remender disappoints me with his Captain America but I am still pretty hyped for this mini-series.

Posted by greenlucario

If this is anything like Uncanny X-Force I'm sold. That's ignoring the fact that this is Winter Soldier and Roland Boschi is a great artist.

remender and bucky? i dont see anyway i dont buy this

Edited by dreamfall31

If it's an ongoing, why the hell did they cancel the other series? If it's a mini-series I'll wait for the trade.

Posted by InkInk

Remender really needs to be taken as far away from Cap and his friends as possible. Rick has shown many times he is a one trick pony trying to recapture what he had in X-Force problem is we all saw what he had and that is all he has. His Secret Avengers, Captain America and Uncanny Avengers have all be disappointing and this will continue that streak.

Wait wait wait wait, so bucky is the villain in the new cap America movie?

( not familiar with Cap's universe )

How does taht even work, didn't age?

Posted by MisterNefarious

@2cool4fun: obvious spoilers

He's an assassin who gets unfrozen for, and frozen again after each assassination he performs

It's an awesome story. Check out the Ed Brubaker Captain America omnibus. It's amazing

Rick Remender and Winter Soldier is a great combination. I'm really looking forward to this.

Posted by infectedhero

Posted by redraobyek

So Remender gets to ruin another Brubaker gem? Awesome.

it was a good day when the last winter solider series ended because it went downhill after the first storyarc. and its not even bucky, its the brainwashed villain. this is so not a good idea. i get they are trying to tie into the movie but please just stop. just show him now in modern times

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

@perfect_10: I disagree Jason Latour's run on Winter Soldier was pretty good IMO

Winter Solider/Bucky >CAP
