So you just saw Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and now you want to get into Marvel comics. Maybe you’ve already checked out our original Marvel Comics beginners guide but you want something books that are more specific to the plotlines and themes from the film. Well you’re in luck because we’ve got a few suggestions!
First off, there’s a name you need to know when it comes to Captain America over the past decade or so: Ed Brubaker. A good rule of thumb here is that if you see a book by Ed Brubaker that’s about either Captain America or the Winter Soldier, it’s going to be a good read. With that said, onward with the recs!
If by some chance, you haven’t seen the film yet and are still avoiding spoilers, beware. This post will likely reveal a thing or two about some plot points.
