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?"

Are you going to check out the first issue, Viners? Share your thoughts below!

@jake_fury: Yeah, the most recent one was Winter Soldier: The Bitter March which was a five issue mini-series. It's the most recent series that Bucky has appeared on his own. The entire series takes place back when Bucky was under the Soviets' control, the mini-series also tied into the most recent storyline in Captain America as it explored the origins of the villain known as the Iron Nail who was originally a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that Bucky encountered back in like the 60s.

I think I finally understand the cover in my own perspective.

On the outside, everyone always sees him as Bucky. On the inside, he's striving to be like Steve. But deep down on the inside, he's best at what he does, being the Winter Soldier.

@k4tzm4n: This character deserves to be Character of the Month more than almost every other character from both of the Big 2 with the exception of Captain America or Red Skull!!!! Please I am begging you make these three characters an option in a poll for Character of the Month for any month.

Great creative team but didnt he just get a new book?

No, the last on-going series he had was Winter Soldier which ended last year I believe. He had a mini-series called Winter Soldier: The Bitter March, which ended this past week. Currently he's appearing in All-New Invaders and Original Sin. But as for his own on-going, he currently does not have one.

And to think I wasn't expecting anymore big comic announcements until Comic-Con. This is awesome. I don't think I've been as excited over a Marvel or DC announcement since Ellis and Shalvey on Moon Knight was announced.

After what Kot did in Iron Patriot with Rhodey I'm not sure whether to be excited or disappointed. I'll definitely pick this up and hope that it's better than Iron Patriot.

@jonny_anonymous: awesome. I liked how he put the issue together. I saw that he did some Swamp Thing with Yanick but didn't know what parts were him although I loved all the art in that book.

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....

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

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.

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.
