S.H.I.E.L.D. #3: Home Invasion!
If it’s related to the mystic arts and the supernatural that’s way ballsy to handle this mission, which they mostly deal the alien stuff and the usual norm. The third issue art chore is now being handles by Alan Davis, and for those old-school fans Mr. Davis is quite memorable with some of his previous works like Excalibur. Over time his finishes are as impressive as ever.
Mark Waid story in this issue pits Spidey, Coulson and Mr. Pavel R. Rasputin in dealing with the mission. At first you’ll probably think Coulson would enlist the appropriate superhero for this job like Ghost Rider, but then again since Spidey used to reside as one of Dr. Strange’s borders he’s the right spider—err man for the job.
Though the story is a one shot there has been a lot of stuff happening in every panel. Just like the first two issues this one stays independent if you missed the previous ones. There are no stories arcs leave that to the live action series that’s coming back on March 3rd. For now this readable material is a great way to reacquainted with the TV series after being gone since the holiday season, which gave way to Agent Carter.
There’s not much to see in this issue unless you’re paying attention checking out what’s happening in each panel as the story picks up its pace and lead you to the main battles. The overall visual was great and the dialogue wasn’t to shabby, but what the last few pages with Coulson gives one you more questions than answers and you have to read to find out what it is.
Fitz and H.E.N.R.Y. by Joe Quesada might not be that much interesting to some but for those casual readers who follow the TV series would enjoy the strip. For now in this issue there’s nothing much see other than getting H.E.N.R.Y. pouncing on Fitz.
RATED: 3.5 Out 5 Stars
