SHIELD has become greatly popular thanks to the ABC show Agents of SHIELD. I have to say if it wasn't for the show I wouldn't be the big fan I am today and I think it's drawn a lot of people from the cinematic universe into the comic universe. This issue focuses on Phil Coulson and his team, along with a butt ton of heroes from the Marvel universe. This issue is written by Mark Waid. The art will be done by different artists each issue, this issue the art is by Carlos Pacheco.
