CBR Review: S.H.I.E.L.D. #2

I recently reviwed S.H.I.E.L.D. #2 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There are moments of brilliance and beauty in every issue of S.H.I.E.L.D. Unfortunately, they seem counterbalanced by moments of mediocrity and ugliness.

Turn the page again and you have Sir Isaac Newton looking and acting like he stepped out of one of those unfortunate comics from the 1990s where everyone looked so ugly and absurd in their metallic clothes and harsh computer colors. That inability to find a stable quality level has plagued the book since its beginning and continues in its second volume, broaching the question: when will it live up to its potential?"
