Entry 301: S.H.I.E.L.D. Update #8

The artwork for the last two issues of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been done since October 2014. Three and a half years ago.

The last issue to be published of S.H.I.E.L.D. was published February 2012. Six years ago.

And the series started June 2010. That's like eight years ago!

As Ripley says in Alien 3, "I'm glad Newt and Hicks are dead. I feel just fine about it."  WHAT no! She didn't say that. She said, "You've been in my life so long, I can't remember anything else." And that's like SHIELD for me. It's like the alien. Xenomorph, if you will.

Anyway, this May it finally comes to an end! Can you believe it?

First-- there will be S.H.I.E.L.D: Rebirth on MAY 2.
Rebirth collects issues 1-4 of volume 2. If you never read Volume 1 you'll wanna start with getting S.H.I.E.L.D. Architects of Forever.

Then-- S.H.I.E.L.D. #5 (vol2) on MAY 16

And the finale-- S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 (vol2) on MAY 30

(Once again, the amazing Gerald Parel on covers.)

Um hey, Shield, get the fucking fuck away from her you bitch! Is that the line from Aliens?

Here are some preview pages.

Blogged and blogged.
