It’s such a simple idea yet done so well – what if S.H.I.E.L.D. existed since the beginning of civilization?

I needed a reason to read some Jonathan Hickman stuff after hearing the buzz about his work on Fantastic Four and Secret Warriors. This is a fascinating and imaginative story that should only get better with Hickman’s energetic writing and Dustin Weaver’s crisp pencils at hand here. They could have done more to explain the protagonist, but it’s a prelude, so I’m not griping yet.

The guest cameos by key Marvel villains are the icing on the cake and surprisingly fit well in Marvel continuity (if that means anything in comic book land, of course. I’m predicting Wolverine will appear in issue 3 and discover electricity with Ben Franklin…)

Enjoy!
