    The issue also conjures up happy memories of the Strange Tales comic, which feature Dr. Strange splitting the comic with Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Add in the always-terrific art by Alan Davis and Mark Farmer, and you have a comic that's a lot of fun. Highly recommended! Read Full Review

    This issue combines the iconic with the obscure as Agent Coulson teams with Spider-Man and Mister Rasputin to liberate Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum from magical burglars. It's a fun concept that makes the most of this unusual pairing of heroes and villains. The burglars themselves are practically a nonentity in the story - more a plot device than actual characters - but there's only so much writer Mark Waid can do with the standalone format.

    SHIELD the comic is a lot different from Agents of SHIELD the TV show, and for that I'm grateful. Mark Waid and his rotating artists are having a lot of fun plumbing the depths of the Marvel Universe, and as an old school Marvel fan, that makes me excited for what's to come. Read Full Review

    It's hard to say, but S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 could have been better. An overall better choice of characters, better dynamic, better execution, and a style of artwork that would make supernatural elements pop out is what this issue needed. Hopefully this was just a small setback because this is one of those series where you can't really afford a slip up if you want to keep readers on board for the long run. Read Full Review

    I absolutely love the high concept of "Die Hard in the Sanctum Sanctorum" on paper, but something doesn't quite click in this third issue of SHIELD - and his name is Phil Coulson. Read Full Review

    S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 brings Spider-Man in for a gust spot as Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum is under siege in this story from Mark Waid with art by Alan Davis. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 27, 2015

    S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 is the weakest chapter in the series so far, with a story that is too basic to stay interesting with the addition of some banter. This issue fell into some of the traps one shots typically face and I'm hoping we see some of the aspects that make Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. work in this comic in the near future. Read Full Review
