Obviously it is hard to follow up the amazing Death of Captain America storyline, but Brubaker is doing a fine job so far. Honestly, I was actually beginning to become a little tired of that strand anyway so these past two issues have been a welcome change. The flashback scenes were great again although it was a bummer that we didn’t get to see any of Steve Rogers this time around. To my surprise in this issue we get to see Bucky use skills he honed as the Winter Soldier to help him do a better job at being Captain America, and these were the strongest scenes of the entire issue. I think this marks an important growth for Bucky as a character who obviously had problems confronting his past earlier on in Brubaker’s run. The issue ends with some good action; using Batroc was a risk, but the character is goofy without being over-the-top and not working with the tone of the story. Ross does a great job on pencils, and I especially enjoyed the pages where the characters were standing in the rain. Excited for the finale of this arc next month.
