It's S.H.I.E.L.D.'s 50th Anniversary, This Month!
To celebrate 50 years of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel Comics is doing it up, this month, releasing a line of one-shots focusing on different agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., such as Nick Fury, Mockingbird, and Quake.
It all started with S.H.I.E.L.D. #9, on August 26th. In it, it's the story that spans the past and the present, and unites Phil Coulson and Nick Fury, Sr. in a unique cross-time adventure to answer a riddle that lies at the heart of the origins of SHIELD: who is The Man Called D.E.A.T.H.? Includes a sequence penciled by Jack Kirby and inked by Jim Steranko that has never seen print as part of a story before! It also features the return of Dum Dum Dugan and the birth of the new Howling Commandos! The very first SHIELD story from 1965! And the pilot presentation sequence that inspired the creation of SHIELD! It was a really big book, 65 pages long, and is definitely a major Marvel collector's item you're going to want to have!
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started off slow, of course, but as we got through season 1, and season 2 hit, the show got bigger and more exciting! We're looking forward to season 3 finally getting here, this fall, and we know you all are, too. In time for the 50th anniversary, Marvel and ABC will be airing season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! It doesn't come until Tuesday, September 29th. That's still an entire month ahead, but until then, Soundwave's got your S.H.I.E.L.D. hook-up! Come in every week, and on our new releases wall, you'll find a new one-shot 50th anniversary S.H.I.E.L.D. comic focusing on different agents from across the agency's history!
Below, we have each one-shot listed, along with the dates they come out, and the synopsis for them.
It's going to be a great month for S.H.I.E.L.D.!
