Friday Night Fights: Captain “Billy Jack” America

Bucky: You really think those Green Beret Karate tricks are gonna help you?
Captian America: Well, it doesn’t look to me like I really have any choice now, does it?
Bucky: [laughing] That’s right, you don’t.
Captian America: You know what I think I’m gonna do then? Just for the hell of it?
Bucky: Tell me.
Captian America: I’m gonna take this left foot, and I’m gonna whop you on that side of your face…
[points to Bucky’s right cheek]
Captian America: …and you wanna know something? There’s not a damn thing you’re gonna be able to do about it.
Bucky: Really?

Captian America Kicking Winter Soldier (Bucky)

Yes, really. You better believe it, son. Bahlactus does.

I’ve been reading the rather excellent Captain America omnibus collecting Ed Brubaker’s run (so far). I popped in briefly for the much-ballyhooed death but hadn’t been following otherwise. It’s a solid story and Epting does a good job drawing the requisite amount of body-swapping nazis, flying cars, and giant robots with a surprising degree of realism. He also depicts a mighty fine jaw kick.
