Review: S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 0

This is a really hard book to describe. The Shield's machinations shape the history of the Marvel at numerous points throughout history... simultaneously.  The Good Conceptually, I dig how the conflict between Newten and da Vinci comes down to difference in ideologies about fate and destiny. Hickman gives you some real, meaty philosophical questions to chew on as Weave and Strain dazzle you with some unabashed visual spectacle. Look at any panel from this and it's clear it's a cut from a very d...

Volume 1 over, bring on Vol 2!! 0

Before I even read this comic I went back and gathered together the rest of the series. The storylines have been so twisty and loopy that you have to have everything in mind while you're reading this. Things become a bit clearer by the end of this issue, but there are so many loose ends that Volume 2 cannot come soon enough. I finally think I understand who the Engine of the Machine is, but that's about it! The groundwork is laid - I like Leonid, and I love the team-up between Stark and Richards...

Nikola Tesla is a Beast! 0

So what can be said after finishing up the first volume of S.H.I.L.D.? well for one It seems that Jonathan Hickman took the concept of what mainstream Shield is supposed to be in theory and executed it out in a very interesting fashion. I think for one to really get into this series required some suspension of belief. Yes Nikola Tesla was going around blowing things up, yet did it make him any less awesome or fun to read? for me it didn't, but then it differs from person to person. In regards to...

S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 2

Hickman and Weaver's stellar series closes out its inaugural volume in high style! Things quit being philosophical and get physical as Davinci and Newton's armies clash in the City of the Immortals. Tesla's ready for round two with agents Stark of Richards. And the Forever Man reveals himself to a disillusioned Leonid.  The Good Weaver does an excellent job of making this battlefield look like a real warzone. What could've easily been a Saturday night sissy fight between brainiacs really feels l...

War of Ideas 0

Dissent, ambivalence, duality, choosing sides, all this notions have become a north in this series, resulting in the cataclysmic clash between Da Vinci and Newton´s men. What lays behind these ideas, who´s right or wrong, which side the messiah will take? I´m very fond to these hegelian ideas of two sides, of struggle, and I think Hickman optimized this side of the plot a lot, letting it brew slowly just to explode in this final issue. The conflictuous ideas of choosing your own fate and that fa...
