  1. Michael Lark. Nice. Let’s hope Mr. Lark doesn’t draw Black Widow’s hair in the 60’s style.

  2. This is a really great title.

    I read this almost as soon as I get it.

    Looking forward to seeing some Michael Lark, although I was really digging the Butch Guice as well.

    The unsung heroine of this title is Bettie Breitweiser, with her usual excellent work,

  3. I read the first two issues and then just kinda stopped. I really enjoyed them, just didn’t keep reading. I would like to start up again on this title, should I go back and read the back issues or do you think I am safe to jump in?

    • You could jump back in for the “Broken Arrow” arc or trade-wait.

      The back issues are worth picking up.

      You may find Brubaker reads better in arc-sized chunks.

      I often skim or re-read the previous issue(s), for mood and context.

      (Fraction as well, because both play the decompressed “long game”, to some extent.)

    • Cool…thanks. I may jump in then since this is the start of a new arc.

  4. I dropped it once Dr. Doom popped up. That just ruined it for me.

    • I thought that might spoil the mood, but he managed to pull it off in the long run.

      As well as giving the character his own little bubble within the current MU-616.

      Brubaker just likes to pop that bubble with some unexpectedness occasionally.

      It seems this year he’s playing with how “comic book”-ish he can push his pulp/action/thriller schtick.

  5. Best character to come from the Marvel U in the last 10 yrs, been loving this so far. I’m curious where this will lead, what kind of roll will bucky play in the marvel U and will he come out and reveal he’s still alive to everyone else.

  6. Truly.

    I’m waiting for him and Ross to both end up working for Thunderbolts or Secret Avengers.

    • I’ve always thought Bucky would be the perfect leader of the Secret Avengers. I think Bucky and Hawkeye would be fun to see together. Both look up to Steve Rogers and the “competing for daddy’s love” and “jealous for his approval” dynamic would be interesting.

  7. Michael Lark! Sweet!

  8. This was awesome from start to finish. The art is wonderful–I’m glad Lark gave Bucky a haircut–the mood and atmosphere created by Lark and Breitweiser is perfect. Brubaker starts this arc off fantastically, and the last page is a gut punch for anyone who followed the Cap n’ Bucky series. So far this has been a fun read, a good mixture of spy-thriller and pulpy adventure.

  9. DAMN IT! I forgot to check this out at the store today..

    Hope it’s there next week.
