Winter Soldier #1; Written by Ed Brubaker; Cover by Lee Bermejo

Thought to be dead, Bucky (Captain America's sidekick) returned from the grave in Ed Brubaker's Captain America run as the Winter Soldier. Brainwashed by Cap's enemies to be an assassin, Bucky was a lethal killer as the Winter Soldier until Steve Rogers broke through to him and helped him remember who he was. After wielding the shield for a year, Bucky is back in his own ongoing series: Winter Soldier! Written by Ed Brubaker and featuring art by Butch Guice, Winter Soldier features Bucky as he traces back the other Soviet weapons of his kind in an effort to erase them all!

When ex-Russian Sleeper Agents awaken, Winter Solider and Black Widow head into action

Trade of the week

The featured TPB for this week is the all new Batman: Gates of Gotham soft cover. Scott Snyder (current writer of Batman) takes a look back at the history of Gotham City and the families who built it.

Batman stands today as one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture, and along with the Batcave and the Batmobile, Gotham City itself stands as one of the most identifiable aspects of Batman lore. This trade explores not only the history of the city but its dark secrets and deadly denizens as well, giving readers a whole scale look at world of Batman.
