    The best thing about Winter Soldier #17 is the way it looks. Nic Klein's art is superb, but there is also a fantastic level of production weaved into nearly every page. The way pages are laid out and the flow of images is nothing short of spectacular. From the title page to Nick Fury's giant floating head, Winter Soldier has a look all its own. Joe Caramagna's gorgeous lettering only adds to greatness of this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Apr 9, 2013

    Jason Latour and Nic Klein deliver another dramatic read with Winter Soldier #17. Latour is able to explore the unknown parts of Bucky's history as the Winter Soldier in a way that you don't know what is going to happen next. There is something to be said about this type of storytelling since we are learning more about Bucky just like he is. The original Nick Fury appearance helps to keep the story focused as the reader never feels lost even with all the information that is thrown our way. The addition of Klein's styled artwork elevates the story by building up the tension with how the color palette changes depending on the scene. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 11, 2013

    After the heavy set-up, questionable plot choices, and goofy island of assassins, writer Jason LaTour finally seems to be settling down with the character. Winter Soldier #17 has a Bond-like quality (even if that Bond is Moonraker), that fans of the character may enjoy. For fans. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 8, 2013

    While the story comes a little bit to a halt while the author copies a little too much from Brubaker's book, we are still treated to some great art for about two-third of this book. If it weren't for the hologram part, this issue would be close to perfection on the artistic level. Read Full Review

    . . $3,20pgs; too many ADs!. . . Another good issue for Latour and Klein, as they continue to explore old sins for James to atone. These guys are doing a decent job of maintaining what Ed built. Dialog and character are staying strong but the old spy character is a bit wacky but fun. Little things were off here and there tho. Art is wonderful, Klein is killer on colors and effects. i almost missed the subtle digitizing. a range of styles throughout the book for flashbacks, mood etc, even old school dots! One of marvels better books.
