  1. For an upcoming episode of the Quarter-Bin Podcast, I will be reading the first issue of 2005’s Nick Fury’s Howling Commandoes. Nick Fury is barely in the issue, and it focuses on SHIELD’s supernatural wing, but still ……..


    • After two shows I’ve found Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. a S.N.O.O.Z.E. I’ve given up on it.

      For my birthday my buddy the Ulm got me the collected Steranko S.H.I.E.L.D. stories. I read these a couple years ago on digital (and did a little about them here on the blog), but it was still good to read the old stories and reaffirm myself that, yes, S.H.I.E.L.D. is good stuff, even if the television guys can’t get it right.

      We’ll always have Paris, sweetheart.
