Captain America: Prisoner of War
My first Cap comic, and I was a bit disappointed. The story was decent enough, but the art on this was bad, and often distracting.
The story is about Bucky, who was recently arrested and then sent off to a prison in Siberia for the supposed crimes he committed during the period that he was the Winter Soldier. The hitch there is that the Winter Soldier, while technically Bucky, was acting on orders while under mind control.
The prison scenes are similar to that of Capt. Kirk in one of those Star Trek films, though with pit fighting added in. Eventually Bucky decides to escape, even though he knows that it will cause an international incident, and he ends up blowing up the entire prison. Black Widow helps him to escape Antarctica and return to America.
