Marvel's Mystery project with writer Jonathan Hickman has been named, and it will tell the origins of what is probably the world's best global defense network against earth-based and extraterrestrial threats - SHIELD! Yes, it's the same SHIELD Agency that's been hounding, patrolling, and most of the time assisting the heroes in their battle against the forces of evil, and it's better known as the group led by that slick, eye-patch wearing son of a gun, Nick Fury. However, this new ongoing series will explore the unknown origins and beginnings of the group, way before Fury's time and predating WWII. Together with artist Dustin Weaver, Hickman's going to take Marvel fans for a ride, with new characters appearing left and right as well as familiar names who would serve as the forefathers and ancestors of the heroes we know today! More info on this series can be read up via ComicBookResources, so click 'em and check 'em, peeps!
