    Action and questions. Always perplexing and always entertaining. I'll be coming back to see if some answers are given. Read Full Review

    The Shield is a book that I'm not all that enthused for with this installment yet I know when I get the chance later to burn through several issues in a row that I'll come away enjoying it. The four month gap really hurts this book in a big way and the wind is knocked out of its sails in terms of readability. I love the concept and what they're throwing at us as it's got a lot it can do but it's just not sure how to do it and the publishing schedule is absolutely hurting it in a big way. I'm definitely sticking with the book because I can see the potential and I loved the first installment but it really needs to be able to do a hell of a lot better. Read Full Review

    If you have been keeping up with the The Shield, this issue is not a bad read. It does come with some drawbacks, such as having heavy dialog and being disjointed at times. Additionally, the writers could have given us something on Agent Chase or Victorias past or even more about the Burning Hand”. On the plus side, the title has some interesting characters, colors, and great looking art. I hope the next issue can improve, but I still liked what theyre trying to do. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Feb 17, 2016

    The Shield #2 struggles with its transitions, its dialogue, and even the narrative boxes it uses for lettering. The overall story is decent. It has a Jason Bourne vibe with an exciting chase sequence, but all too often it gets caught up with just too much dialogue that even recaps the sequences we just witnessed. There is still some promise it might be able to get off its feet with the cliffhanger, but as of right now it seems to be digging an early grave. Read Full Review
