WPR First Look Comics: S.H.I.E.L.D. #1
Level 8 clearance accepted, welcome to S.H.I.E.L.D…
Can’t get enough of Agent Coulson and the rest of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D? Me either, and lucky for us neither can Marvel. Which is why starting next month, Phil Coulson and the rest of his crack team will now also be protecting the two dimensional side of the Marvel Universe in their very own monthly comic. Teaming up with any and every hero that has the skills needed to help S.H.I.E.L.D save the world, look for Agent Coulson and his team of secret super agents to recruit some of Marvel’s most famous heavy hitters, including none other then Deadpool. Phil Coulson and Wade Wilson…now that’s a team-up I’d pay to see, and come December, I will be.
