The WINTER SOLDIER Is Back In A New Miniseries From Rick Remender
The Winter Soldier‘s solo book may have just recently finished its run, but ol’ Bucky Barnes will be a big part of Captain America and Marvel comics next year as we travel down the road to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. One of the next places readers can see Barnes is in Rick Remender‘s upcoming 5-issue miniseries The Winter Soldier: The Bitter March this February. USA Today had the announcement and cover for the upcoming event.
The five issue series is described as a “James Bond-like pulp thriller” that Remender says is a “love letter to 007 and Jim Steranko S.H.I.E.L.D. comics.” This isn’t a standalone story either, it will set up things that will play out in Remender‘s Captain America series as well. The Bitter March is set in 1966 and two Nazi scientists have developed a formula that could win the Cold War. They find themselves in the hands of Hydra, so S.H.I.E.L.D. sends in Agents Nick Fury and Ran Shen to grab the scientists. The Russians have their own plans- they open the Red Room and let lose the Winter Soldier. Remender says of the 60s Winter Soldier:
He is a force of nature and when he is tracking you, you are in a bad way. He was a tool who had very little control of his own mind, but I will be exploring how Bucky Barnes is underneath all of it still. Even back then, there was a piece of him trying to stand back up.
