Think you know the story of Cap and Bucky's origins? Well, think again. The secret story of the early days of Captain America is revealed here, told from Bucky Barnes' point of view. What was Cap and Bucky's first mission together? What was the tragedy that happened on it that changed everything about who Bucky was? And what is the secret that connects the Cap and Bucky series to Cap's modern day stories? From co-writers Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko with artist Chris Samnee (Thor: The Mighty Avenger). COLLECTING: CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BUCKY 620-624
In 1964, when Marvel Comics returned World War II hero Captain America to its stable of characters, it established that the captain's former teenage sidekick, Bucky, died in an explosion during the war. Bucky remained dead until the 2005 story line brought him back, explaining that a combination of brainwashing and suspended animation at a secret Soviet agency had kept him alive as an assassin. Writers Brubaker (Captain America: Winter Soldier) and Andreyko (Manhunter) and artist Samnee (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) follow Bucky from boyhood through his post-assassin years. The story is told from Bucky's point of view and gives the reader a new look at the war hero who is more than Captain America's chipper sidekick. Samnee's heavy lines and blocky figures recall the 1940s comics where Bucky began. Verdict Although the book's first half is engaging, with developed characters, the second half is rushed, with an unsatisfying conclusion. Serious Captain America fans will enjoy Life Story; for everyone else, it is not recommended.-Robert Mixner, Bartholomew Cty. Lib., Columbus, IN (c) Copyright 2012.
