I heard XFF was ok.

I always read the reviews for XMF because it is always either "half a star" or "five stars!!" depending solely (I think) on the reviewer's nostalgia for a specific age of comics.

Good God, someone write their SHIELD review! I don't have anything new to add about it.

That's it! Special overtime pay for the Hack Squad--target: Jonathan Hickman's email. :wink:

The Hack Squad earns their pay--A quote from Joe Quesada himself regarding SHIELD #1:

For my money, arguably one of the best new titles in some time.


Now if only they would finish my taxes for me. :cry:

My half-assed review:


I loved this issue. I hadn't read a single first issue of a series that i loved as much as this since Gailman's Eternal's mini.

The artwork was solid. Each page looked sharp and each time period had a distinct look to it.

The story....oh god. The story....freaking amazing? The orgin of SHEILD?Imhoteph, Apcolypse, and a Moon Knight fighting of a Brood invasion? One of the most fucking awesome things i have ever seen on a page. The two page spread was gorgeous. I love the fact that Da Vinic is being set up as a main supporting character in this series/arc. THe easter egg of Stark and Richards was cute...not necessary...but cute. The main character is actually interesting and it's obvious the relation with his dad will result in lots of intugie and mystery.

"This is not how the world ends" definetly sets the tone of the book.

I can not wait to see where this book goes.

You think Leonid is interesting? Why?

Does anyone think there's anything to the similarity of Leonardo & Leonid? In name only, I mean. It's an odd choice without some hidden connection.

After all, Leonid means literally "like a lion", and Leonardo means "strong as a lion".

So would that make The Night Machine a descendant as well, or not the real father do you think?

Even if he wasn't the real father, he would still have presumably had a hand in naming Leonid.

You mean Night Machine, right? I think so, it's hard to imagine Leonid's early life at this point, to be sure.

Yes, Night Machine.

Plus, the name Night Machine does link in with Leonid's weird star powers.

Yeah, that guy's balls must be microwaved, that suit is leaking energy like mad.

I wonder who his mom is? It can't just be some random nobody at this point, it seems like SHIELD was selectively breeding their starchild.
