    I might not agree entirely with the tonal shift of its titular character, but I cant argue with the quality of the storytelling. I know this is listed as a limited series, but I am hoping that it kicks off a series of standalone vignettes centering around various encounters with Winter Soldier. Marvel could use an injection of pure pulp and this book seems well-positioned to deliver just that, and there are still plenty of stories to be told. Read Full Review

    At first glance, Winter Soldier may appear to be a movie tie in or attempt to cash in onthe movie'spopularity; it is, however, a good serialized pulp espionage tale. The book could have easily been just that. What it has been for three issues is fun, energetic tale of agent Shen in his harrowing escape from insurmountable odds. Recommended for Remender fans, espionage enthusiast and of course fans of the movie that this only somewhat resembles. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Apr 21, 2014

    Each issue has been funny, interesting, and a great bit of storytelling, but part three has seen the most action. All the build up to these characters fighting each other has finally culminated in this "Who is stronger than who" battle. On top of all that, the train they are all on has been rigged with a bomb. Rick Remender's writing is downright enjoyable. When mixing action, comedy, and horror all together, it has to feel natural and he pulls it off perfectly. Nothing feels out of place in dialogue or intention and that creates an exciting read for its fans. Read Full Review

    There are still three issues left in this limited series, but right now, Winter Soldier: The Bitter March is a good bit better than it should be. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 21, 2014

    The Winter Soldier is the most recognizable character in this story, but it truly isn't his story despite the character's name taking top billing on the cover. This is Agent Shen's show and the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent provides some entertainment while coaxing readers to the edges of their seats. Remender brings the pulse and scope of a story that could easily be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Winter Soldier: The Bitter March" #3 is a fine transitional issue that should be finding its way to more readers hands as moviegoers the world over continue to familiarize themselves with James Barnes and his questionable past.
