August 3rd, 2014 by Christopher Williams Comments

High-tech weaponry. High-stakes missions. High-octane adventure! This is S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 – the all-new in-continuity Marvel series inspired by the hit ABC television show! Eisner Award-winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil) brings you a new series that explodes off the page with done-in-one missions each drawn by some of the top artists in the industry including Carlos Pacheco, Alan Davis, Chris Sprouse and more!

“[S.H.I.E.L.D.] has the best toys,” says series writer Mark Waid, in an interview with “And the best allies – anyone and everyone in the Marvel Universe is a potential guest-star in this book, from Dr. Strange to the Thing to Spider-Man to Cloak and Dagger to Groot – if they’ve got the skills needed for the task at hand, they’re on the front lines (like it or not).”

Leading the charge is special Agent Phil Coulson, as he brings together the best and brightest, the gifted and the elite – normal people and superhumans alike from all corners of the Marvel Universe! If you’ve got the skills, S.H.I.E.L.D. has a mission for you! Phil Coulson, Maria Hill, Skye, Melinda May, Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons and more team up with the Marvel Universe’s most iconic characters each and every issue to confront, combat and curtail cataclysmic threats and world threatening dangers beyond the scope of any conventional peace-keeping force!

“We’ve got what amounts to an unlimited budget and the ability to bring in any character at any time,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “So that’s an advantage that we’re going to press, with the most spectacular set-pieces we can dream up, and involvement from characters from every corner of the Marvel Universe.”

Each and every issue: One mission. Twenty pages. Non-stop action. Guest stars from across the Marvel Universe. And a helper monkey. Hold on to your hats Agent, as S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 brings thrilling espionage and high-octane superhero action to comic shops and digital devices this December!
