Captain America: Winter Soldier Movie Storybook-ADVISABLE

Davis, Adam. Ill. by Ron Lim, Cam Smith, and Lee Duhig. Captain America: Winter Soldier Movie Storybook. Pgs. 111, Marvel, 2014. $12.99. Content: Language: G, Mature Content: G, Violence: PG

Super-soldier, Steve Rogers continues to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. as Captain America. Along with super spy Black Widow, Captain America must face a shadowy figure from his past known as the Winter Soldier. To get some additional help, he turns to a fellow soldier for support: Falcon. But will the trio be enough to defeat the Winter Soldier?

A uniquely well-done layout for a movie storybook, this is a great adaptation of a movie. The illustrations are accurate to the movie characters and are complementary to the text. The plot itself is a little thin, but is probably accurate to the movie. Fans of Captain America and Avengers, however, will not be disappointed. EL. ADVISABLE.
