BOOK Ú ↠ Mark Waid

Se on an as needed basis to confront combat and curtail dangers beyond the scope of any conventional peace keeping forceCollecting SHIELD 1 6 Despite only intermittently being any cop TV's Agents of SHIELD gets incarnated in the Marvel comics universe because synergy Which turns out to work surprisingly well Here it doesn't have to worry about licensing and rights or FX costs or being derailed twice a season by the latest movie so it can pull in elements from anywhere in Marvel's sprawling toy cupboard and plough its own furrow Each issue has a new artist including big names like Chris Sprouse and Alan Davis and a new team up for the agents The core idea is that Coulson as a massive superhero geek knows exactly the right hero or sometimes villain to deal with a given situation sometimes suggesting uses for their powers they hadn't even thought of themselves Much the same goes for veteran writer Mark Waid whose deep grounding in this world makes him perfect for the project I don't think there's a single guest star where he gets the voice wrong And he even captures Clark Gregg's voice too making Coulson work on the page as than a placeholder something I've not seen the comics manage before Yes seeing Fitz and Simmons in jumpsuits feels a bit odd and yes I would like the previous SHIELD series by Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver to get its long overdue conclusion but in the meantime this is good stuff and surely it can only improve once Fitz earns his helper monkey

Mark Waid ↠ S.H.I.E.L.D., Volume 1: Perfect Bullets EPUB

S H I E L D Volume 1 Perfect BulletsPhil Coulson brings together the best and the brightest the gifted and the elite normal people and superhumans from across the Marvel Univer Inspired by the TV Series it proudly says on the cover But it just barely is Sure Coulson is omnipresent but the rest of the team are basically guest stars in what I'd call Marvel Team Up starring Phil and your favorite Marvel hero of the week Which is a shame because the issue spotlighting Jemma teamed up with Ms Marvel is the best of the volumeThe individual stories are all one offs without enough depth to be particularly great There is a barely connected meta story but it uses the old formula of minor elements in individual issues leading to the big bad and that's rarely fulfillingOverall this feels like an opportunity suandered It could have had great continuity and really developed the TV characters in the Marvel comic Universe but instead it's uite unfocused and never seems to know what its core really is
