CBR Review: Winter Soldier #1

I recently reviewed Winter Soldier #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The hook of this series flows naturally out of the last stories featuring Barnes wearing Captain America's mask. Put on trial for his activities as the Winter Soldier and extradited to Russia, he learned that he can't escape his past. That he committed atrocities while under Russian control is irrelevant - Barnes still takes on the responsibility for his actions, especially with other Soviet programs possibly still in play that he has knowledge of. In this debut issue, Barnes and Natasha try to track down other 'Winter Soldiers' he trained, who have been lying dormant until activated. As an opening chapter, the comic makes for a nice mix of character-driven plot and noirish espionage that suits the characters perfectly."
