Its been nearly a year since Ed Brubaker and Butch Guice’s first issue of Winter Soldier came out. Now, 14 issues later, they’ll be moving on and next issue a new team will take their place.
Winter Soldier #1 ended with an amusing bang last week by having a gorilla mercenary open fire upon Winter Solider and Black Widow whilst yelling, “Death to America!” in flawless Russian. The second issue begins exactly where the first left off in a showdown with the aforementioned gorilla mercenary. Winter Soldier and Black Widow get outsmarted by the gorilla and in a Thunderball-esque exit the gorilla escapes via jetpack.
Samuel L. Jackson signed on for a pretty stunning NINE picture deal with Marvel. We’ve seen him a few times whatever, and we’ll almost assuredly see him in both The First Avenger: Captain America and The Avengers, very probably playing a much more sizable role than he has in the Iron Man features, but Jackson is now saying that (in an interview on Radio Big Boy, which I got from Cinema Blend), following a successful Avengers film, SHIELD won’t be far behind. Jackson also confirmed that he will not be appearing in the upcoming Thor film.
I read 17 comics in March, and these were the best.
