    So if you can get past the continuity, it's entertaining - but despite the bigger action scenes, it's not really up to the level of the TV show. Read Full Review

    Being a massive fan of the TV show, I was a little taken aback when I saw this issue, however the longer I read it the more I felt like I was reading about the Peggy I love. The bond between Peggy and Sif felt natural. Peggy refusing to join Shield and Fury telling her she would be a great asset or a serious threat was written well. Dum Dum and Peggy integrated perfectly. It's very well written and the art had that retro feel to it. Read Full Review

    Agent Carter : S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 is a solid addition to Marvel's celebration of a half-decade of espionage and intrigue for the spies in blue and white. Kathryn Immonen's script is refreshingly free of violence, somewhat let down by Rich Ellis' artwork. Ellis' occasionally confusing action and Rachel Rosenberg's questionable color palette leaves Agent Carter: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 often unappealing to the eye, but there's a warmth that shines through to make it worth a read.

    "Agent Carter: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary" #1 is a decent read and fine epilogue for Immonen and Ellis' work on "Operation S.I.N.", but it doesn't pack any lasting punches. It's great to see Sif in place, which further connects the comic book "S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary" specials and the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." television series, but the story in "Agent Carter" #1 just seems like an inventory tale, keeping the license fresh and vital. I'm sure Immonen, Ellis, Rosenberg and Sabino would be able to craft more riveting adventures with more available real estate, and I hope they get that shot. Read Full Review

    It's always nice to see Peggy Carter given the spotlight in Marvel's comics, but this issue didn't do much to further her story or take advantage of the team-up with Lady Sif. The underwhelming conflict, and especially its poor resolution, take the wind out of this book's sails. Read Full Review
