Falcon & Winter Soldier #1

Falcon & Winter Soldier #1 unites two former Captain America stand-ins as an attempt on Bucky Barnes' life and a separate investigation by the Falcon put the heroes on the same path investigating why someone attacked an entire office of covert American agents and also tried to assassinate both the Winter Solider and his cat.

The issue reminds us in their first interaction that while the two are friendly with each other, the heroes aren't exactly friends. This sets up the basic odd couple dynamic with the pair being forced to work together until they uncover what is going on and what it has to do with an exceptionally skilled teenage fan of theirs with lots of blood on his hands.

While this isn't the kind of title I'm likely to stick with for long, the first issue offers some nice humor and sets up the players in the story, included a skilled killer that the Winter Soldier and Falcon will need to work together to stop, fairly well. Worth a look.
