Today marks the release of the (apparently first of two) ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier‘ preview comics! This digital title is set between the events of Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ and the upcoming Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’. We find the city od Chicgo is about to be attacked by a dangerous weapon called The Zodiac which has fallen into enemy hands. The only way to recover it is for Captain America, Black Widow, and Brock Rumlow to stop the terrorist group before they are able to use the device. Bonus? It takes place on top of the Willis Sears Tower! (Sorry, It’ll always be the Sears Tower regardless of what you try to change the name to!) As always when it comes to S.H.I.E.L.D., we don’t get all of the details as someone is hiding something from our heroes.
Wait… Wait wait just wait a sec. He’s working along side who? Brock Rumlow? Long term fans of Cap might recognize that name and be having problems placing it. That would be because you are more familiar with his other name, Crossbones. Is he going to end up starting off in S.H.I.E.L.D. in the cinematic universe? Now that’ll be an interesting twist!
According to editor Bill Rosemann:
“If you’re a Captain America fan, this all-new adventure is rare sneak peek into the movie we still have to wait over two months for. irst, you get to see Cap rock his new stealth suit. Also, you’ll see one of his first missions working side-by-side not only with his Avengers teammate Black Widow, but also with Brock Rumlow, whose name should ring some bells. Plus, you get sweet Rock-He Kim artwork in our interactive Infinite Comic format, which is especially suited for the Marvel Cinematic experience. Oh, and how cool is it that it’s all written by fan fave scribe Peter David?”
Are you planning on picking up a copy of this digital comic to help bridge the gap between the films and ease the pain of waiting until the April release to see what comes next?
In downtown Chicago, a mysterious weapon called The Zodiac has fallen into enemy hands. Captain America, along with guest stars Black Widow and Rumlow, are on a race against time to stop the terrorist group before it’s too late. But what secrets is S.H.I.E.L.D. keeping about The Zodiac? Are there enemies on both sides of this fight?
Written by Peter David with art by Rock-He Kim, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier Prelude Infinite Comic’ is available for purchase now.
