    Default James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes, The Winter Soldier Appreciation 2019

    Happy New Year to all fans of Bucky! And a new Appreciation thread for 2019!

    Bucky's currently got his own solo series and will soon be appearing in a new Invaders book, as well as recurring in the Captain America ongoing.

    Another character I never read but want to, I just need one simple but big answer.

    Do his days as Bucky, Captain America's kid sidekick in World War II, ever became relevant to his story as a The Winter Soldier beyond acting as flashbacks?
    Meaning can I just rely on the flashback to know Bucky's past? I don't need to go back to the 40s and read his childhood days?

    I tried reading them but it was so old and seems irrelevant.

    I really wish this current mini was an ongoing or even a maxi series. The plot itself is interesting, but could be improved if there were more issues to hash out RJ's background. With just five issues, the pacing feels really rushed.

    You can start at Brubaker's Captain America run. That's what I did and haven't had any problems understanding things that happened in the WWII era.

    Brubaker made a new character called Bucky using the old character as part of the pie, so you can just start with Brubaker.

    Brubaker wrote Winter Soldier right? That's what I need. Thanks.

    But the story really begins in Brubakerís Captain America run. So I would start there.

    Issue 2 was ok. RJ is, well, I guess we’ll see. Art remains strong and I’m interested to see were this goes.

    Yes, that's what I meant by Brubaker's Winter Soldier. First appearance of the Winter Soldier in his Captain America run.

    Captain America: Winter Soldier Vol. 1
    Collects Captain America (2004) #1-7. Cap is awakened in the dead of the night by agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., who need the kind of help only he can provide. But the corpse he finds on the Heli-carrier brings him face-to-face with an unthinkable return, and opens doors to terror and manipulation he never dreamed possible!

    I've been eyeing this book for a while. It was heavily promoted when the movie came out too. I just held off on it because of the aforementioned reason.
