Marvel Next Big Thing Live Blog For November 3rd: Winter Soldier
Big news is supposed to hit today. Is it the announcement that Marvel will be going day and date digital on all their comics?
Follow along live below.
Update: It's on the new Winter Soldier ongoing series by Ed Brubaker and Ed Guice kicking off February 2012, as first heard about right here at Cosmic Book News.
From the feed below:
Ed says the idea for Steve Rogers to return as Captain America and Bucky to go back to being the Winter Soldier with his own book has been the plan for some time. What changed was Bucky was initially going to "die" at the end of the Gulag storyline and disappear for a few months, but when Fear Itself came along, it made more sense to do it there.
Details from that Gulag storyline, especially the revelation that Bucky has secrets in his head about other Russian weapons and sleeper agents, will lead right into Winter Soldier.
"This is me trying to create a book that is James Bond meets Splinter Cell in the Marvel Universe." -Ed Brubaker
According to Tom [Brevoort], only Cap, Nick Fury and Black Widow will know Bucky is still alive.
