CBR Review: SHIELD #4

I recently reviewed SHIELD #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Getting a handle on S.H.I.E.L.D. and where it’s going is always a challenge. For a series that is taking the long view on the Marvel Universe, it spends much of its time focusing on the smaller moments that affect the characters. Big, sprawling wars are glossed over, while discussions of motivations are given a lot of attention. On the surface, not much happens in S.H.I.E.L.D. #4 and, yet, in focusing on the smaller moments, even using the same three pages (altered in each case) three times, gives the issue an easy, relaxed feeling. It’s a comic that celebrates and luxuriates in the wonders that it deals in."
