The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are officially joining the Marvel comic universe. The first issue, S.H.I.E.L.D. #1, will be written by Mark Waid and drawn by Carlos Pacheo. The series, however, will have a rotating selection of artists.
Waid sat down with Comic Book Resources to discuss the announcement. “I am a fan of the show. They’ve done some things with it that just leave me breathless, particularly near the end of Season On,” he told them.
You can expect the Agents to run into your favourite Marvel characters, because now that they’re part of the comic universe, anything is fair game. Anyone currently in continuity is on the table,” Waid commented. “So far — and we’re in the early stages, so don’t hold me to these — but we’ve mapped out stories teaming Coulson and his agents with anyone from the Vision and Baron Mordo to Two-Gun Kid and Iron Man to Daredevil and She-Hulk to Hawkeye and Rocket Raccoon, taking place in the Savage Land, in Lemuria, in the Everglades, on other worlds and even in other times.”
You can head over to Comic Book Resources now to read the entire interview.
S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 will make its debut in December.
