Released in a comic book format, the new five-issue, Marvel miniseries adventure will be written by trusted steed, Rick Remender. It will be illustrated by Punisher: In The Blood collaborator Roland Boschi.

In terms of plot, we’ll see the former sidekick's time as a brainwashed Soviet assassin in 1966, when S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Soviets are vying for a secret Nazi formula under Hydra control.

Remender revealed to USA Today that the new adventure will have a bearing on th ongoing "Captain America" series as a whole. He added that the miniseries is a love letter to James Bond and the Jim Steranko era S.H.I.E.L.D. stories.

"He was a tool who had very little control of his own mind, but I will be exploring how Bucky Barnes is underneath all of it still," Remender says. "Even back then, there was a piece of him trying to stand back up."

Captain America: The Winter Solider is Marvel’s latest entry into their ‘phase 2’ of movies. We’ve had Marvel’s Avengers, Iron Man and Thor, and now it’s Cap’ America’s turn to save the world.
