Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Issue 1 - Comic Book Review

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - #1 - Marvel
Written By: Marc Guggenheim
Art By: German Peralta & Rachelle Rosenberg

Stolen Stark Tech has busted into the Department of Defense and stolen something very valuable to anyone with a vengeance towards super hero’s. Tony Stark and Agent May are discussing the matter while Coulson and team are interrogating an A.I.M. splinter cell. After some discussion it’s revealed that Coulson might have a contact who can help them but it won’t be an easy sell and what he finds out won’t be easily understood. 

The is the first issue for the new launch of this series. I enjoyed the previous series and this revamped title did not disappoint. While I do not care for the show, I do enjoy the characters in this setting. The fantastic four tie in was a nice touch. I enjoyed how this series connected to the new “Invincible Iron Man” series also. While I did enjoy the previous run, it did feel a bit isolated because it didn’t connect to any stories currently in progress. They used the characters, sure, but no official storyline connectors. This first issue appears to have corrected that.

I enjoyed the overall story and it did well to highlight the different characters and the role they play within the team. The issue ends with a twist but there’s other stories occurring with the characters that also had a twist or surprise finish. Once again, the comic book is more entertaining and better written than the show in my opinion. I was a monthly reader of the previous series and it feels like this all new all different run will keep me reading every month.
