'Captain America' #1 Preview: Will Things Turn Out Sucky for Bucky?

Spoiler Alert.

Marvel released a preview today of Captain America #1 sans any word balloons or captions, but comics being the visual medium that they are, the writing seems to be on the wall.

Things may turn out sucky for Bucky.

But hey, if there are two characters who have proven that death is nothing but a rite of passage—it’s Cap and Bucky. The two will be featured in their own ongoing alongside the relaunching of Captain America by Ed Brubaker and Steve McNiven. And boy are those some nice-looking pages (after the jump).

Of course, I’m only speculating about the fate of Mr. Barnes, who was last seen fighting a were-grizzly in the last issue of Captain America. We’ll have to wait and see what the House of Ideas has in store for the reformed Winter Soldier.

Official Press Release
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the blockbuster Captain America #1 from the superstar creative team of Ed Brubaker and Steve McNiven. This July, the original Sentinel of Liberty springs back into action for a high octane adventure that no Captain America fan can miss. When a mysterious figure from Steve Rogers’ past returns, deadly secrets surface that put Captain America back in-between crosshairs. The next big chapter in the life of Steve Rogers begins this summer in an action packed adventure throughout the Marvel Universe, only in Captain America #1!
