Read full description of the books:
A full five stars might be a bit much, but I did really enjoy this. I've mentioned before on here that it's a difficult task for a writer to take over a character when the previous writer has had a long and beloved run.
Pretty much since the character was convinced, no one wrote the Winter Soldier much other than Ed Brubaker (Bendis probably came close second when he was eventually included in the Avengers titles, but with team books it's hard to get into singular characters much).
So, when Jason Latour took over the Winter Soldier title, which wasn't one of the higher selling books to begin with, he did something cool and fun with it. He keeps to a style similar to Brubakers, there's a lot of internal monologuing/narration from Bucky throughout, and builds on his past and his current status-quo. Bucky is still torn over the previous arc and what happened between him and the Black Widow.
Latour could have easily not touched on this at all, and focused solely on the main story, but it's good that he does because it was an important moment for Bucky. Natasha was someone that he loved, and it was all torn apart by some villain (in true comic book fashion, of course), so he's struggling to move on from it. The world still thinks he's dead, so the list of people had grew shorter by one.
And then there's the main story. The after effects of a mission that the Winter Soldier did when under Russian orders has come back to haunt Bucky in true spy-fiction tradition. Declaring war on most of the world, Bucky must figure out a way to stop her whilst seeking redemption for himself.
What stood out the most to me were the flashbacks (another trope that Brubaker fans will be familiar with), and a lot of that is down to Nic Klein's art. When the Winter Soldier is on the mission, the primary colour that's used is white, which really makes the art and flashback scenes stand out. It looks really good. Klein's art throughout is great, and is the main reason I'm giving this five stars. Both him and Latour created a cool looking, slick spy story with the Winter Soldier.
(Also, side note: this is probably better than a lot of Brubaker's later stuff with Captain America.)
