Marvel Releases First “Captain America: The Winter Soldier Prelude” Comic

by Kevin Costain

Captain America: The Winter Soldier starring Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson

In the lead up to releasing Captain America: Winter Soldier, Marvel has released a comic that tells a prequel story that includes Cap himself, Black Widow and Rumlow. The comic looks to be a series leading up to the April movie release. You can get the first issue of Captain America: The Winter Soldier Prelude today. Hit the jump to find out more about this new Marvel venture.

This time around, Captain America and Black Widow are working with Rumlow in downtown Chicago. A mysterious weapon called The Zodiac has fallen into enemy hands. The group is on a race to find out who has the Zodiac and to stop them before it’s too late. All the while, Cap is questioning the motives of his handlers, S.H.I.E.L.D. Expect this theme to be a big part of the upcoming sequel.

You may have seen Rumlow in the Winter Soldier trailer getting quite a beating at the hands of Cap in an elevator. This suggests Rumlow and the Captain will not exactly be on the best of terms on the comic. The Zodiac was last mentioned in the recent Marvel One Shot: Agent Carter. This is customary for Marvel to make callbacks and add to canon in various ways, so it will be interesting what we see revealed as the comic progresses.

Currently, it’s unclear the number of issues in the comic’s run. Issue number one is out and ready to be purchased at $2.99. Captain America: The Winter Soldier starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford rolls into theatres April 4, 2014.
