COMICS: AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Comic Coming; Will Incorporate Characters From TV Series
It was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con today that Mark Waid is launching an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series which will introduce the characters from the TV series to the regular 616 Marvel Universe. Hit the jump for details on that and a first look at artwork from the series!
The line between the comics and movie universes continues to blur as Marvel have announced today a new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series from Mark Waid and a team of revolving artists including Carlos Pacheco, Alan Davis, and Chris Sprouse. It will introduce characters from the TV show to the Marvel Universe, and Agent Coulson is set to have a lead role. "He is the coolest Marvel Comics fan ever. E-V-E-R," Waid said of Clark Gregg, the actor who currently plays the character on TV. "He’s amazing at his job, he’s badass, he’s funny—and he loves the history of the Marvel Universe as much as I do." The format of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won't be too different to the recent Moon Knight series, with a run off one-off stories. Each will seemingly feature an appearance from a well-known Marvel superhero though. "Done-in-one stories are more challenging, no doubt—and every story will focus on one mission, yes—but I’d be very surprised if there weren't some evidence of some common thread once we got rolling, something to give each set of issues more of an arc. Oh, we’re definitely bringing the gang in, from May to Fitz and Simmons and beyond," he revealed. "They're the Marvel Universe “versions” of these characters, which gives us license to really delve into them in ways that are tough with limited screen time each week." What do you guys think of the series?
