The latest issue of Winter Soldier might not feature a machine gun totting gorilla with a jetpack, but after spending the first two issues with a lot of set-up we’re finally starting to get to the good stuff.
The pacing of this issue is much better as Bucky and the Black Widow try to hunt down the Soviet soldiers he helped train during his brainwashed dash as the Winter Soldier. They also have to try and and convince a super-villain that he’s about to be framed and he needs their help. That’s not the easiest thing to do when his name is Victor von Doom.
There’s quite a bit of humor here to go along with the action including Lucia Von Bardas playing with her Doombot and Bucky learning that breaking into the Latverian embassy might not have been the best way to convince Doctor Doom that he’s there to help.
It looks like three issues in things are finally starting to pick up. Let’s hope it continues. Worth a look.
