First Look at ‘Winter Soldier: The Bitter March #1’

Just before he becomes a movie star, the Winter Soldier is returning in a five-issue limited series which flashes back to the height of the Cold War – when Bucky Barnes was brainwashed by the Soviets and at his most ruthless.

Here’s the blurb: At the height of the Cold War, S.H.I.E.L.D. sends their top operative, agent Ran Shen, deep into enemy territory to retrieve two Nazi scientists that could be the key to winning the war. But they aren’t the only ones who want these high value scientists. The Soviet Union have unleashed their most ruthless agent – THE WINTER SOLDIER! His mission: acquire the scientists by any means necessary – or kill them before they fall into enemy hands!


“In the late 1960s, a S.H.I.E.L.D. mission gone wrong begat the creation of the Iron Nail, the foe whose schemes and strategies are bedeviling Captain America in the present in his own series,” says Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Winter Soldier: The Bitter March tells the story of that fateful mission, and the events that set S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Ran Shen onto the path that would result in him becoming the dreaded Iron Nail.”

Check out this sneak peek at Winter Soldier: The Bitter March #1 from writer Rick Remender and artist Roland Boschi, featuring a cover by Andrew Robinson and variant covers by In-Hyuk Lee and Chris Eliopolous.
