The Winter Soldier enters the Civil War and the Red Skull lays the groundwork for his greatest revenge in Captain America #23 as the "Drums of War" continue.

Captain America's life has been completely turned upside down with the passing of the Super Human Registration Act. After the events of last issue, which saw Sharon Carter and Cap's relationship pushed to the breaking point because of Civil War, things continue to get worse for Steve Rogers.

Since he learned that his long-thought-dead sidekick is among the living, Captain America has desperately been trying to catch up with Bucky, or as he is now known, the Winter Soldier. But the Winter Soldier comes across another aging war hero instead – Nick Fury.

Nick Fury has been underground since the events of Secret War, but will this new war be enough to get him to resurface? Plus, what is his connection to the Winter Soldier and what reprecussions will this have on the Civil War?

Captain America's greatest enemy, the Red Skull, has slowly been ensuring Cap's downfall and now with the start of a Civil War, it is the perfect opportunity to see his plans to fruition. The Skull will form a deadly alliance that will make the entire Marvel Universe tremble beneath their heels; but what major player will it be?

The "Drums of War" play on in the pages of Captain America #23 as Civil War continues, featuring a spotlight on the Winter Soldier and a new devlopment with the Red Skull that no one will see coming.
