3.9 Panel

After reading Brubaker's Daredevil (#82) i got extra-hype to read the new Captain America: Winter Soldier TP. Pretty good stuff... and that is saying a lot from a guy like me who has had very little (if any) interest in Captain America in the past (i've even been known to loathe the guy's over-the-top goody-two-shoes-ness on occasion).

Brubaker's take however is gritty, interesting, and well-developed (through issue 6 at least). He's managed to kill off a major arch-enemy and bring back a major "lost" character w/o going corny... and Roger's struggles with his memories/flashbacks are crucial. Brubaker is a beast.

Don't worry, it has yet to stumble. Brubaker's solid gold these days. Not that I'm saying he ever wasn't, only that I haven't read much of his old stuff except "Sleeper," which was great.

yeah he really kills it w/his take on the authority, where he brings back a classic nemisis. i've become a huge fan of this kat.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
