Comic Vine News



Bucky Barnes is making a big comeback! Come find out who the creative team is and when you can get your hands on the first issue.

This October, writer Ales Kot and artist Marco Rudy will create all-new adventures for Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. the Winter Soldier! Announced via A.V. Club, it's revealed the story will follow Bucky as he takes on a top secret role.

According to editor Wil Moss, Bucky will travel all over the Marvel Universe and find himself in many iconic locations. “The entire Marvel Universe is his playing field, from the depths of Limbo to the heights of Asgard, and everywhere in between. It’d be like if the James Bond movies suddenly had access to the characters and settings of all the other great film franchises. (You just know Bond wouldn’t have needed an entire fleet of X-wings to destroy the Death Star!)”

Kot shared his thoughts on the character and what this new series means for him. "Bucky is entering a completely new phase of his life and it is a deeply expansive one. Shedding the old and embracing the new is the core of the character and the series – traveling across galaxies as a very capable and damaged ex-mercenary, having experiences you can’t fit into your established worldview, changing in the process. What is to be embraced? What is to be released? And what is left of the being underneath?"

" the story will follow Bucky as he takes on a top secret role."

And here i was thinking that we would see him chasing cosmic dolphings riding a solar-powered bicycle in the Antares System.

Well "duh" he's a super-spy :p

Instant pull list.

Well, all those people compared Grayson to this character and now it seems Marvel is taking Bucky in a very similar direction to Grayson. Or- maybe this description isn't what it seems. Maybe Bucky is the new Man on the Wall. Yeah- That thing revealed in the latest issue of Original Sin.

Ales Kot, huh! This is his third series he's doing at Marvel now. Or I wonder if Iron Patriot got the axe. On a side note, does anyone know what nationality Kot is? I've never heard of anyone else named Ales.

I'm really happy about a new Winter Soldier series and I love Marco Rudy's art, I'm just not sure they're a fit for one another.

I just can't see this being anything but awesome. Ales Kot is perfect for a Winter Soldier book. I also think Marco Rudy is a great artist. So this is a definite pull.

Wow Marvel and DC love making sure that 2 ex premiere sidekicks go hand and hand. First Dick now Buck. I like them both when they were assuming they're mentor roles

What are the odds this is to cash in on that movie from a few months back? What was it called? The one where Cap was boringly invincible.

Awesome. Great to have my favorite character back in an ongoing . Not too familiar with the artist. I hope Kot takes a more serious tone to the book than he is with Secret Avengers. I haven't been a huge fan since he took over for Spencer.

@cap10nate: Kot is very good with the serious spy stuff. Try reading Zero if you haven't done so already.

Interesting. When I hear about the otherdimensional space adventures I was kind of put off a bit until a Viner here said Man on the Wall. That might actually be interesting and something new... Oh he'll, count me in! Though I think Iron Patriots days are numbered....
