Also doombug, if he's Tesla then can I plz have a RASL crossover? With Bowie in it? That would be an unholy uber comic and I would love it.


Jeff Smith and Hickman working together would be too epic to comprehend.

Something in one of the back matters in Secret Warriors has Hydra as the spear, and I think there's a line from the Baron saying something about being the spear too.


The Shield (the actual shield) stayed in the West, the spear went to the East to I assume somehow fall to The Hand & Hydra or simply that sect becomes Hydra/Hand/Whatever.

Sorry, is it not Japanese enough for you? Too few robot detectives and young Asian boys, eh?

Don't think you're impressing anyone by not reading SHIELD.

My euro comic avatar says otherwise. No doubt the Facebooks would love me with an avatar like this one.

What's next, Fly-face, nothing but Australian-aboriginal chapbooks printed on bark? Single-panel "Love Is.." cave drawings from the Igbo Jewish tribe of Africa?!

Only if I can get the slipcase edition with the art presented on replica slabs.

That Humbug book looks pimp, btw.

I think that's on the list for tomorrow, I've never seen that stuff and it may not get reprinted.

That reminds me, SPACE is coming up here, check it out--you'd like it:

S.H.I.E.L.D. #1

I <3 Jonathan Hickman, I really do. I got kind of pissy about him stepping away from his creator owned work, but I love Secret Warriors (Hurry up with the v2 tp already Marvel!) and I've warmed up to his FF. This comic though feels like the first time he's really bringing that attitude and approach from his earlier works and fully integrating it into a Marvel comic and it thoroughly kicks ass. Celestials, Galactus and DiVinci indeed! Lots of fun big ideas and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all takes shape.

Dustin Weaver was pretty awesome on X-Men: Kingbreaker but he's working on another level here. Some of the layouts and panel design felt very Hickman so it would seem that he possibly had some hand in that, but Weaver's art meshed with it amazingly well. The only way the book could have looked more perfect is if there had been a more tech based font, the standard font Klein used here feels woefully out of place.

Hope this gets a good long run, maybe if Hickman shoehorns in Wolverine and Spider-Man he can get 5-6 years. :wink:

Don't have a lot of time for this review, The High concept of this book is intriguing and I will definitely be buying the trade because I want to see where everything goes but in one issue the story goes far too many places and leaves me the reader wanting more of pocy in egypt and more renaissance galactus. I get neither and instead looks like we're heading towards this 1950's story with characters we're not introduced to. The art however is just so amazing that it helps you forget any story issues you might have and ultimately sky rockets this stories score.

I could see James being used at some point. We already had agent richards and agent stark so obviously we could get a parker as well.

It wouldn't feel forced either, it would make sense that all these characters parents and grandparents were influential years before they were born. 8)

Peter Parker's parents were established as Agents Of SHIELD back in the 90s.
