Winter Soldier returns!
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!
