    Like every other issue of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes a new artist and style. Again nice to see artists chosen for this title that bring something appealing to the table. As stated before you want to make sure a title like this is as visually worthy of our attention as the story since S.H.I.E.L.D. is one of the more mission of the day kind of series. That means it's taking more risks and you have to make sure the reader wants to take that chance in picking up that next issue to see a consistent quality put forth. The penciling for S.H.I.E.L.D. #8 is clean, with great body proportions, fluent action scenes, and the facial expressions really sell the moments involving Bobbi. The colors as well are handled in a way that makes things pop out where it could come off flat. Especially when it comes to the highlights and shadows used to give depth to characters.

    Waid executes the merging of S.H.I.E.L.D. with existing Marvel heroes well. The idea of the two combining to head into different and less often seen areas of the Marvel U is something that keeps drawing me back to this series. There's a huge sandbox to play in here and each issue gives us something different. Read Full Review

    It's a surface-level telling of a tale that needed a touch more nuance. Read Full Review
