BUCKY BARNES: THE WINTER SOLDIER Ongoing Announced

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?"
