    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Feb 10, 2013

    It's still a little early, but it certainly appears that Winter Soldier is in capable hands. Jason Latour's story looks to have a good balance of superheroics and character, while Nic Klein's art is off the hook. I'll definitely be back to see how their collaboration evolves. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 9, 2013

    I urge people to stay on this book to give Jason Latour a chance. With this issue, he has proven that he can write great action, good dialogue and actually gets who Bucky Barnes is. Combine that with the amazing art of Nic Klein and you have a great book here. Heavily recommended. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Mike Cassella Feb 12, 2013

    Anyone who claimed to be a fan of the Winter Soldier and dropped the book after Brubaker's departure would be a fool not to continue with Latour and Klein. They're doing more than just trying to keep a title afloat. They're making their mark and reminding us that Marvel always has an eye for new talent on classic characters. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Feb 8, 2013

    Nic Klein's colors and art perfectly match Latour's vibe. The book looks like an espionage driven book should look. Klein handles a sequence of two astronauts turning into Hulks just as ably as he does an old fashioned bar brawl. For pete's sake, even the credit page is action packed. Make no mistake, Latour's debut is impressive and judging from this issue, he has a great deal to add to the Marvel Universe. Bucky is in good hands. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 6, 2013

    Klein does a nice job on the art, too. Some of the slower moments look a bit too blocky and stiff, but once the action kicks in you can really see where he excels. A Hydra dinner party that quickly turns into a blood bath looks fantastic. He also uses hand-drawn sound effects in a stellar fashion, adding some quirky character to the series. It would seem that Winter Soldier is still in good hands, so now's is a great time to jump on this series and support one of Marvel's smaller, darker books. I don't want to live in a world where Bucky Barnes doesn't have an ongoing comic. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Feb 8, 2013

    I'm ok if we have a few transition issues while Latour gets his feet wet, but he needs to find his own groove for this character or the book is going to start suffering. I know this all sounds negative, and that's unfortunate because it was actually a decent issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 9, 2013

    This was a solid issue. Latour has a nice handle on Bucky and seems to have a good idea on what sorts of adventures we should see in Winter Soldier. There's nothing that truly stands out as new or exciting. This is basically just the Winter Soldier being the Winter Soldier and going on a spy mission. If you're a huge fan of the character, this series should be right up your alley. I know I wasn't sticking around entirely for Brubaker, but there is a certain amount of disappointment that he's gone. But that's what happens when a long-running, popular writer moves on. I know X-Factor won't be the same if Peter David ever leaves the title. I wish Latour all the luck in the world. He's definitely got a good artist at his side. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 13, 2013

    While Winter Soldier #15 isn't all that good neither is it a bad comic. However, it doesn't do nearly enough the sell me on the new direction for the title or the character. Pass. Read Full Review
