Steve & Bucky hugging, or something around hugging at least…
They don’t hug much, if at all, you know? I was disappointed. I wanted to see them hugging more T^T…

Hi! Love your blog! Absolutely awesome! One question: do you happen to know the part where they should have gone after the red skull but Cap said next time 'cause Bucky is freezing, which book does this come from? Thank you!
God, my tumblr wasn’t showing me ANY new messages, so I was totally unaware of this question. So sorry! It was: Fear Itself - Book of the Skull #1. Sorry again. I hope you’ll see my answer T^T. And thank you!

If Steve Rogers had adopted me when I was a kid—
I know, partner! Today your name would be Buck Rogers, right?
Funny how Steve reacts. It’s like seeing Bruce and Dick again. In the new comics, of course, Bucky is only a few years younger than Steve, but in older comics they were more like father and son. Bucky was an orphan, so I’m surprised the adoption never happened. I know that it’d be weird, now that they’re almost of equal age.
Avengers NOW! promo
"Avengers NOW! goes way beyond the Big Three [Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor]. All the characters in the exclusive image above will play a more prominent role in the Marvel Universe going into 2015."
"The initiative will also feature a renewed focus on Deathlok and the Winter Soldier, and more than ten titles already in the planning stages."

Okay, Nazis—It’s the end of the line! Everybody off!
Of course “the end of the line” gains its meaning only after the movie. But it’s still nice to see Bucky saying “it’s the end of the line” (even if it has different meaning here), while Cap reminds everybody that it’s Captain America and Bucky, or Bucky and Captain America. Together till the end of the line, right?
This October, writer Ales Kot and artist Marco Rudy will create all-new adventures for Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. the Winter Soldier! Announced via A.V. Club, it’s revealed the story will follow Bucky as he takes on a top secret role.
- According to editor Wil Moss, Bucky will travel all over the Marvel Universe and find himself in many iconic locations. “The entire Marvel Universe is his playing field, from the depths of Limbo to the heights of Asgard, and everywhere in between. It’d be like if the James Bond movies suddenly had access to the characters and settings of all the other great film franchises.
- Kot shared his thoughts on the character and what this new series means for him. “Bucky is entering a completely new phase of his life and it is a deeply expansive one. Shedding the old and embracing the new is the core of the character and the series – traveling across galaxies as a very capable and damaged ex-mercenary, having experiences you can’t fit into your established worldview, changing in the process. What is to be embraced? What is to be released? And what is left of the being underneath?”
- A.V. Club: What are the things that attract you to Bucky as a character?
- Ales Kot: Sexy abs.
- Killing brings trauma. Its effects on people and societies are relatively well-documented, yet we still have wars and glorify killing. My work on spy fiction in comics, beginning with Zero and continuing to Secret Avengers, interrogates the space where the trauma is repeated ad nauseam. Winter Soldier is the last part of my exploration of this, at least in comics.
- Are you still thinking about sexy abs?
- Bucky Barnes has undergone self-numbing amounts of traumatic experiences. He killed for the Soviets. He killed for Americans. He had people taken away from him by rather brutal means. He had his mind wiped out. Repeatedly. To top that, he’s hyper-competent when it comes to hurting people and he barely had a childhood.
- AVC: Is there anything you’re hoping you get the opportunity to draw at some point on this book?
- Rudy: There are quite a few. Two of them I asked for and I got a positive from Ales, so those I wont reveal as it’s a pretty kickass surprise. But on to the question, well, since we’ll be spacefaring, space visuals will be awesome to draw. Everyone knows how much of a Silver Surfer fan I am, if I can’t get to draw him space-surfing, we have jetpacks and Bucky has a ship, so…
- I want to visit Titan, draw Ikaris, Makkari, Sersi, The Eternals, man! And from what I know, Barnes is going to be doing his thing all over the place, so, awesome!
- At the same time we’re talking about a very acrobatic, very physical character—he was once Captain America, so the possibilities of showing Barnes doing his thing with flair fill me with excitement. I want to show it all, acrobatic killings, combat prowess, stealth maneuvers, Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell meets Captain America and classic pulp heroes. Expect that, and more.
- Also, we have a very interesting supporting cast, of which I’m only going to talk about Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. “Quake.” She takes center stage in this book and it’s finally a female character to draw for me. Been asking to draw female-focused stories for a while now, and here is the chance. Expect her to be quite the badass in this book, she will be every bit the equal of Barnes, and then some, adding to her tactic and combat prowess, her superpower and more. The dynamic between these two will be interesting to explore.
