Jonathan Hickman’s ‘Shield’ Set To Reveal Marvel’s Premier Spy Agency’s Secret History

Yesterday Marvel teased a special announcement for an upcoming series by Jonathan Hickman on G4TV’s “Attack of the Show” during the Fresh Ink segment hosted by Blair Butler.

As promised, Butler revealed the new series by Hickman and artist Dustin Weaver is called “Shield” and will reveal the secret history of – that’s right, S.H.I.E.L.D. (I like the acronymless title better already for my own selfish typing reasons):

“Beginning in ancient Egypt and running through the 1950s, the series will reveal how some of the greatest icons in history protected the Earth from threats like Galactus and the Celestials.”

Butler added that the series reveals would impact not only Marvel’s past, but also its future, which may be welcome as Nick Fury seems pretty stressed out of late in “Secret Warriors.”

Fans will have to wait until April for the first issue of the miniseries to arrive. Until then they’ll be left to wonder how the seemingly less mutant, god and radioactive spider-stocked Marvel U managed to deflect hardcore cosmic threats sans Ultimate Nullifier.
