Sadly, last year the latest Winter Soldier comic run can to an end but have no fear! There’s a new Winter Solider comic hitting shelves today called “Winter Soldier: The Bitter March.” Here’s a little info from Marvel.com about the limited series comic:
1966: With Nick Fury missing, and presumed dead, global espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. sends secret agent Ran Shen to collect two Nazi scientists with the key to defining who wins the Cold War. But the Americans are not the only ones who want the high value scientists. The Soviets have opened the Red Room, releasing their most dangerous operative –The Winter Soldier, who unbeknownst to the world, is the presumed-dead partner of Captain America—Bucky Barnes! The brainwashed soldier’s mission: to acquire the scientists by any means or to kill them should they fall into American hands. This classic 60’s style, high-octane, spy pulp told at Cold War’s peak follows Ran Shen and his terrified scientists as they creep out of the shadow of East Berlin. Intrigue, adventure, romance and murder abound with ramifications that will shatter relationships in the modern-day Marvel Universe—including one with the Star Spangled Avenger himself!
Sounds really exciting, right? Here’s a look at some of the artwork:
The 1st image is the variant cover for Issue #1, the 2nd is the regular cover. The 3rd is one of the Animal variant covers that Marvel is doing for pretty much all their books. I really love the 1960’s feel that’s going on. I can’t wait to get my hands on this. Below are some interviews and articles about the story:
And here are a few reviews fresh off the presses: (updated 2/13 with more reviews)
If you can’t get to your local comic shop to pick this up, here are some digital options:
If you’re not down with digital but aren’t near a shop, be sure to check out Things From Another World and Midtown Comics. I’ve ordered from both online shops before and never had any problems. Plus sometimes Midtown has special variant covers that other shops don’t have.
Looks like my friend Deidre is ready for the snow!
And Dan shared an awesome Winter Soldier panel over on Twitter!

Travis from TravisTheGrimm has his first Winter Soldier Wednesday post up and ready for you t go read!
This was a pretty quick and easy WSW post but since I just sorta came up with it, it was perfect timing as well. Did you pick the book up this week? If so, what did you think? Remember if you’re taking part try and use the tag “Winter Soldier Wednesday!”
