Ever since Fear Itself #7.1: Captain America, we’ve been stoked about this one. As Rusty said when he picked that comic as Best Book of the Week back in November:
"Bucky has always been an integral part of Ed Brubaker’s Captain America saga. Heck, the first arc was titled Winter Soldier. And we got some very good Bucky (and Captain America) stories out of the run… To let Bucky get back to being the Winter Soldier. I just thought it was great. He’s not Bucky Barnes the sidekick. He’s not Captain America. He’s not even Sucky Cap. He’s the Winter Soldier. Even the new Captain America and Bucky title… is retelling Bucky’s World War Two adventures with a decidedly Winter Soldier flair. It’s who he is."
And that’s why we can’t wait to read this. It’s Bucky doing what he does.

Winter Soldier and Black Widow are the super-spies of the Marvel U! Ex-Russian Sleeper Agents awaken, but under who’s control? Is that Dr. Doom? Uh oh.
Marvel Comics’ Winter Soldier #1 comes out this Wednesday!
As the banner at the top of the cover states, "2 Months until Avengers vs. X-Men!" When this series came out it promised the return of Cable and some big old fights with the Avengers. Well, that promise has definitely been kept, as we saw Cable take on Captain America in the first issue and then Iron Man in the second. This time around? RED HULK.
Something has happened to Hope Summers and Cable, techno-organic virus and all, has blamed the Avengers. But that has its consequences… as we might just see in two months with Avengers vs. X-Men!

Marvel Comics’ Avengers: X-Sanction #3 (of 4) comes out on Wednesday!
This week, the first week of February, marks the beginning of the sixth month in DC Comics’ New 52 initiative! Fifty-two brand new #1 issues were at the start and several of the titles that were our early favorites back then come out this week! There’s Grant Morrison’s Action Comics, the last issue of which featured a very cool retelling of the hero’s origin; then there’s Jeff Lemire’s Animal Man, with this issue featuring art by John Paul Leon; and there’s Swamp Thing, Scott Snyder’s outstanding series of the Green, the Red and the Black, each of which represents some side in the fight. Plus, Red Lanterns, Detective Comics, and Stormwatch!
ACTION COMICS #6

The breakneck pace of Grant Morrison’s run on ACTION COMICS continues as the Superman of the present day must team up with suspiciously different versions of the Legion of Super-Heroes to save the jeans-wearing Superman of five years ago! Whose hand is that on the cover? Why, the leader of the Anti-Superman Army, of course!
Plus, a backup by Sholly Fisch and ChrisCross that spins directly out of the lead story!
DC Comics’ Action Comics #6 along with Detective Comics #6, Animal Man #6, Swamp Thing #6, Red Lanterns #6 and more all come out on Wednesday!
