"Thor is about a rebellious son who can’t please his father no matter what he does. Odin’s a jerk. He claims to have a very clear vision of Thor’s destiny, one that doesn’t involve wasting time with Earthlings, but like many fathers, he’s much better at articulating what Thor isn’t supposed to do than what he is supposed to do. There’s poor Thor, just trying to follow his heart, while Odin--time and again with all the compassion of a hurricane--punishes Thor for breaking specious rules that were never very clear to begin with. THAT, I got. THAT, hundreds of thousands of teenage readers have been getting since 1962. Characters, if they’re to have any longevity, have to speak to universal concerns." -- Mark Waid

"I'm not entirely sure why interest in S.H.I.E.L.D. ebbs and flows, though I'm not sure that's not true of anything from Hawkeye to Moon Knight, either. I do think that flat-out espionage without at least the tiniest dash of superheroics is a hard sell to a Marvel audience--but while we will have plenty of guest-stars (PLEN-T), it'll always be a S.H.I.E.L.D. book all the way." -- Mark Waid

S.H.I.E.L.D. has revived the Dum Dum Dugan series of LMDs to be part of S.T.A.K.E., the organization's latest attempt at the whole "monster S.H.I.E.L.D. agents" concept...

"My friend Tom Peyer reminded me that there’s a character in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s very first appearance, way back in Strange Tales #135, that has never been seen or referred to again--and in this story, we learn how he threads back through everything Jonathan Hickman and others built into S.H.I.E.L.D.’s history, how he figures into the organization’s future..." -- Mark Waid

'The mission statement from editor Tom Brevoort was, “We want this to be the TV show as if they had an unlimited budget.” No heroes or villains are off-limits.' -- Mark Waid

In the latest issue, one of the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. went undercover at Coles Academic High School as substitute teacher Ms. Steranko. Naturally, since there were shenanigans afoot at her school (and she's on the cover), Kamala showed up.

She and agent Coulson have a geek-off )

SHIELD continues, as the assembled ComicBookResources has the preview. Two behind the cut.

I'm not sure where this is going now, but I'm willing to see this through to the end.

Time keeps on ticking.... into the future. )

Giant robots!
Mysterious cities!
Crazy scientists!
Strange technology!

Is this your standard 1930's comic book adventure flair? An old movie serial?

NO, dammit, this... Is..... S.H.I.E.L.D. !!!!!!

Giant robots? Hardly! It's a Celestial!
Crazy scientists to the rescue? Only if you think the greatest minds of the Western world like Michaelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Nostradamus, Nikolas Tesla, and *cough* Nathaniel Richards and Howard Stark bringing the hurt are common lab geeks.

I've already posted my near max for this issue, so I saved my last alloted page for one more shot.

Open up and smile, you son of a .... )

Greetings, loyal readers.

Seeing as how this title has been out for a few weeks and no one has brought it, four pages from the most recent issue.

And the title continues to roll in epic proportions.

*Note: Forgive me, my summary will not do this title justice. You know the writing, you know the art, you know the story to be among the best written in recent years. Skip that morning breakfast and get your hands on this.

The Truth of All Things. )

'Nuff said.

SHIELD vol.2 begins next week. It is exciting. The issue opens with the character who was revealed at the end of #6.

I've only looked at this page of the preview and can happily say that it is lovely. It looks different to Vol.1 too.
Don't you have some painting to do )
