Captain America #43

Captain America 43Ed Brubaker // Luke Ross
December 2008

That happened quickly: Bucky is now shacking up w/ the Black Widow. On the plus side, his first regular case as Cap involves a cult favorite (of mine, anyway), Lee/Kirby’s French martial artist Batroc. Add a flashback to Japanese-held Beijing, subtract Epting’s art, and you’ve got New Cap.

    The run peaks with that “Death of Captain America” super arc of #25-42, but its stays pretty consistently decent thoroughly. This 3/6 issue arc in particularly is good fun, namely for Batroc ze Lepar, the greatest of all Cap villains.

      I agree mostly. But I suspect Brubaker couldn’t figure out how to approach Steve Rogers, Director of SHIELD. I recall his Secret Avengers as pretty dire! But while he had to fudge Bucky’s plot (“Fear Itself”? no thanks), he maintains the quality through Winter Soldier.

      And I’m totally with you on Batroc! Love the Leaper!
