    I love that I never know what is coming in this heartbreaking issue. RJ is healing in more ways than one, not just physically, but also his mind and heart. Wounds are so much easier to heal than the heart. Rod Reis does an amazing job bringing these complex emotions to life and Higgin's writing is putting a ton of heart into this project. Rod brings Higgins story to life making this the perfect mini-series. Read Full Review

    A stunning cliffhanger seals the issue's intense track record, and fans will be left torn between wanting to protect Bucky forever or smacking him upside the head. Read Full Review

    Winter Soldier #3 (of 5) is a great look and insight into the character of Bucky Barnes. Higgins is doing some fantastic work while Rod Reis delivers some delightful art. This is turning out to be a great little mini-series that I hope gains some more traction among readers. I feel like people are missing out on a very good read by not picking up Winter Soldier.

    Starting a five issue miniseries on the penultimate issue is never ideal, but with Winter Soldier #4 it is more than doable. This is a really fun and enjoyable comic with some not so subtle questions about the nature of redemption. Read Full Review

    There's a school of thought that Marvel is getting their cinematic universe right at the expense of their comics. Winter Soldier is irrefutable proof of that the opposite is true. If Higgins and Reis maintain this level of quality (and were granted more than the 5-issues) this would give the Immortal Hulk a run as Marvels best book. The team brings great action and deep psychology without losing classic super heroics. This is just damn good story telling without cheap gimmicks. Fans should support books like this, put it in the hands of people who haven't yet read it, so we get to enjoy it for more than its limited run. Read Full Review
