Captain America is dead. The Winter Soldier is Red Skull’s captive. Falcon and Black Widow have been betrayed by someone close to them. And in Captain America #31¸ by the Eisner-winning & Harvey-winning “Best Writer” Ed Brubaker and acclaimed artist Steve Epting, it’s only going to get worse for our heroes! In the first chapter of the brand new “The Burden Of Dreams” arc, Winter Soldier’s held prisoner and tortured by Dr. Faustus, while the Red Skull hopes to use Bucky to his own advantage—but what could those plans be? Meanwhile, still reeling from last issue’s shocking betrayal, Black Widow, Sharon Carter and the Falcon come face to face with the man who might be their last hope—Iron Man! But by the time the truth surfaces and Bucky can be located, will he be friend…or foe?


Captain America #1 arrives October 17 for $2.99.

    When you review this one, I believe the “headline” caption should be the Red Skull in the middle panel of that last page saying “CANNNN YOUUU DIG ITTTT!?!?!?”

    Or not.

    I’m guessig the ‘Burden’ part will partly describe Steve’s Burden as Captain America, Bucky’s Burden in that he has to suffer for his terrible sins while inwardly being a nice guy, and the Burden in Sharon’s Oven.

    (Alas for British Humour…)

    Red Skull’s face in the last page is hilarious, could you use it as the presentation picture of your review?

    Mark I.: Greatest. Idea. Ever.

    I noticed Black Widow’s hairstyle changed again.

    Very Kirby-esque Red Skull.

    So Tony rescues Sam and Natasha; I wonder if Sharon gets away, or if he stops her.
