Alright, they have my attention.
I’ve loved Ed Brubaker’s work on Captain America, he has done an excellent job and really has earned the acclaim heaped his direction. Bucky Barnes has come to life as a character in a way that I never thought he would, and the journey has been a heck of a lot of fun. But at journey’s end I wait for Steve Rogers to regain the mantle of Captain America, and for Bucky to remain a viable supporting character in the book from here on out (admittedly, the ‘Bucky Death Clause’ never made a lick of sense to me). That’s what I hope we’re seeing in this image, and while it’s a longshot, and it could be something else entirely (“Dark Cap” for example) I’m onboard for what Brubaker has planned for the foreseeable future, and who knows…here’s hoping.
(hey, there’s chain mail!)
