    SHIELD the spy organization is everywhere these days, but SHIELD the comic has found its own little niche. Mark Waid continues to prove himself as an all-time legend in the industry with a series of fun, superheroic adventures. These aren't overly deep or emotional comics, and Coulson can be a bit of a blank slate at times, but SHIELD is a lot of fun if all you want to do is party in the Marvel Universe for a little bit.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 10, 2015

    "S.H.I.E.L.D." #4 is a solid addition to the series and a wonderfully constructed standalone tale. Waid, Sprouse, Story, Almara and Caramagna work well together and give readers everything a tie-in comic should be without bogging the narrative down in excessive backstory or grandiose explanation. We might not ever see Sue Richards suit up for S.H.I.E.L.D. on either the big screen or television but, with "S.H.I.E.L.D." #4, we've got an enjoyable adventure that has fun mashing up super powers and espionage as can only happen in the Marvel Universe.

    Waid delivers another fun addition to this series, though not one that capitalizes much on the Sue/Coulson dynamic. Nor does this chapter contribute much to Waid's overarching narrative. The upside is that Agent Simmons is given more room to shine as she coaches Sue through a particularly tricky bomb defusion. Read Full Review
