Winter Soldier on Bitter March

WINTER SOLDIER: BITTER MARCH #1
1966: With Nick Fury missing, and presumed dead, global espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. sends secret agent Ran Shen to collect two Nazi scientists with the key to defining who wins the Cold War.
But the Americans are not the only ones who want the high value scientists. The Soviets have opened the Red Room, releasing their most dangerous operative –The Winter Soldier, who unbeknownst to the world, is the presumed-dead partner of Captain America-Bucky Barnes!
The brainwashed soldier’s mission: to acquire the scientists by any means or to kill them should they fall into American hands.
This classic 60’s style, high-octane, spy pulp told at Cold War’s peak follows Ran Shen and his terrified scientists as they creep out of the shadow of East Berlin. Intrigue, adventure, romance and murder abound with ramifications that will shatter relationships in the modern-day Marvel Universe - including one with the Star Spangled Avenger himself!

WOLVERINE #1 ANMN
Wolverine no more? After the events of “Killable,” Wolverine has something to prove.
Before he can take on Sabretooth again, he’ll need to build himself back up, get better and stronger than he’s ever been…
But it’s not as easy as he thought, and he’ll soon find himself turning to other means of revenge when the normal channels don’t seem to be working fast enough.
Can he fight back his demons, or is this the beginning of a Wolverine who’s gone to the dark side?
Written by Paul Cornell. Art by Ryan Stegman.
For years, The Punisher has waged a war on crime in New York City with an array of very large guns, but a lead on a major source of drugs, weapons, and more has set his many sights due west.
NOW! Frank Castle’s in the City of Angels, looking to give the devil his due. Things aren’t all they appear, though, with a highly trained military hit squad hot on Frank’s tail.
Caught between a posse of Punisher predators and targets of his own one-man-war, Frank’s manifest destiny may be a shallow grave!
