    If you haven't been reading Brubaker's Winter Soldier I'm not sure what's stopping you. It's been a relatively short run, but it is worthy of your attention and is one of the best comics you could hope to read. I have a hard time believing that there are many comic readers out there who wouldn't like this series if they gave it a shot, and this issue is the best yet. Read Full Review

    This was a brilliant issue, and although it's not the best in the series it is still very good, and I will be sad when Brubaker leaves this series. I would highly recommend this issue, and am looking forward to the conclusion of this story in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 19, 2012

    Winter Soldier #13 delivered the goods as our brainwashed hero fights Daredevil, Hawkeye, Wolverine and Captain America. The action was fast and jammed packed with a lot of great moments for everyone involved. Ed Brubaker has done a good job creating a villain that is Bucky's own. The James Bond/Jason Bourne feel to Bucky's world is refreshing to see in a universe filled with super-powered characters. If you haven't read any of Brubaker and Guice's work on Winter Soldier I highly recommend you do so by picking up the trades for this series. Read Full Review

    Luckily, the art continues to thrive even if the script underwhelms. The story plays to Butch Guice's strengths almost perfectly. There's plenty of stylish action as Bucky and daredevil dance their deadly ballet. There's ample mood as rain gushes down and light and shadow constantly battle for supremacy. And through it all, Bettie Breitweiser's sublime colors make everything feel rich and vibrant. Readers who pass over Winter Solider really don't know the visual delights they're missing.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 21, 2012

    The fight has its moments, and it's certainly well told, but by the end of the issue we're right back to where we were an issue-and-a-half ago with no movement on the search for the brainwashed Black Widow or the ultimate goal of Novokov. Even if Brubaker seems to be milking a story that doesn't make any sense with what's going on with the rest of the Marvel Universe (as Black Widow isn't reprogrammed in The Avengers or other titles in which she's also appearing), it's still worth a look.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 15, 2012

    I've enjoyed the Winter Soldier series for the most part, but in the midst of all this Marvel NOW! excitement, it's losing a lot of steam quickly. We don't seem to be any closer to ending this Novokov story, and the fight with Daredevil didn't go anywhere. Daredevil didn't even join the group at the end to go rescue Black Widow. He just helps out in the fight and everybody gives him the brush off. So that whole plotline of Bucky allowing himself to be mentally re-programmed went nowhere. The big lead that Captain America mentions in the end is a bit of a stretch, in that he thinks by targeting Daredevil (Black Widow's ex-boyfriend), that means Novokov is willing to let the Widow go eventually. That's…not really a lead at all. So while the Daredevil cameo was neat, it went nowhere, and this story can't really afford any tangents to nowhere if it hopes to hold our interest for too much longer. Read Full Review
