    AIPT - Adrian Care Apr 10, 2019

    The conclusion to this latest Winter Soldier solo outing is a hard read. Not because it isn't brilliant but BECAUSE of its brilliance. A powerful, emotional, conclusion to the best use of Bucky Barnes since Ed Brubaker resurrected the character. Please, Marvel, give Kyle Higgins and Rod Reis an ongoing Winter Soldier series. Some hope while I tear myself in two lamenting that this mini-series is at an end, while also waiting in anticipation to slam down some cash for the trade. Read Full Review

    I think a lot of people “slept on” this Winter Soldier mini-series. Which unfortunately happens to a lot of mini-series in the comic book world. Kyle Higgins for me really stuck the landing story wise in Winter Soldier #5. It had an ending that left me wondering and wanting more, yet satisfied with what I got at the same time. Rod Reis really impressed me with his work on this series. He did a fantastic job of bringing everything to life in this series with some great artwork. If you want a good solid contained story then I would implore you to pick up Winter Soldier #5 and the back issues or grab the trade when it comes out, you won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    This was a good ending to a good mini series that felt like it was supposed to be something more. I was not a fan of the art, but if you are a Winter Soldier fan, this is worth checking out. Read Full Review

    It's a slight misstep for a book that has otherwise been sturdy, as Winter Soldier #5 navigates murky thematic material, and yet Higgins and Reis still manage to right their course in time for the final scene and the last image of their collaboration here. Read Full Review
