    You Don't Read Comics - Jason Dincauze May 24, 2018

    While much hinges on the execution of the final issue, S.H.I.E.L.D. #5 has only added to the sense of quality tied to the series, furthering its phenomenal story while employing a cutting-edge storytelling device. Fans have only two short weeks to wait for the conclusion, which, after 6 and a half years, will be a breeze. And they can reread this one over and over while they wait.Grade: A+ Read Full Review

    Basically, you should read this entire series again, or at least 4 times, and also buy the FF trades while you're at it, oh and Secret War, oh and again just read anything Hickman writes and you'll be pleased. I totally recommend this book, this issue, and until he lets me down, you should read all Hickman you can get your hands on. Read Full Review

    So, there has been a huge time gap between when the prior issues were released and now. And yes, I hate that. Doomsday Clock is hard enough let alone YEARS for a delay. So, let me spend some time getting you all caught up before the issue starts.

    The idea of SHIELD has been around since Imhotep stopped the Brood invasion in 2620 BC. Someone or some group needed to be formed in order to protect our planet and societies for generations to come. Throughout the years, individuals have been incorporated into the Brotherhood of SHIELD which include the more
