Marvel has released a prequel comic for their upcoming movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and you can read it online for free. Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier Infinite Comic #1 is written by Peter David with art by Rock-He Kim. In the book, Captain America works with S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Black Widow and Rumlow to stop a terrorist group from getting a mysterious weapon known as The Zodiac. Captain America isn’t quite sure who he can trust as he discovers that S.H.I.E.L.D is hiding sequels of their own about the weapon.
David had previously written the adaptation for Captain America: The First Avenger, so he is well versed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Steve Rogers. According to Marvel, the new book will showcase a key part of Roger’s journey; “the evolution of his patriotic zeal, from the scrappy young man bent on joining the war effort to a more thoughtful leader ever mindful of his minders.”
