Captain America: Winter Soldier – Ed Brubaker

The problem with the great American hero, Captain America, is that the comic usually sucks. What does this say about the American dream? Anyway, the two volume Winter Soldier has a lot going for it: The Red Skull, a Cosmic Cube, crazy Soviets, terrorists, the rewriting of history, what can go wrong? It was probably the best Cap story I ever read, yet it still wasn’t terrific. No wonder that bastard Quesada killed him.
