Entry 176: S.H.I.E.L.D. Update #5
As of a week ago S.H.I.E.L.D. Volume 2 #5 is all done. It was almost all done before all the Avengers stuff started. I only had 3 pages to tighten up and ink. But now it's all done...
Of course, you won't get to see it for some time still. Marvel doesn't want to release it until we know we can quickly follow it up with the next and last issue, issue #6. And we won't start working on issue 6 for a while due to Jonathan and my involvement in "INFINITY", the big Marvel summer crossover event.
I know, if you are wanting the end of SHIELD and care less about the Marvel event stuff, it kind of sucks. But believe me, no one is as bothered by it as I am.
I think it's clear that I have put a lot of care and work into SHIELD, and while it sits unfinished, it feels like all of that work was for nothing. It's a depressing feeling, but I've been assured by everyone at Marvel that the plan is to finish SHIELD as soon as we finish up Infinity. So there's that. Plus, I feel good because I think these last two Shield issues are going to be really cool.
How bout some process photos?
You could say these have SPOILERS, but this issue has so much happening in it that I'm not to worried about showing some things.
Before I wrap this up-- thank you to everyone who continues to want to see this series get it's ending. I appreciate the continued interest and I'm encouraged when I meet someone who has gotten into the series since it's hiatus.
And one last thing-- I did an interview/ questionnaire, and you can read it here. Interview
Here's the first page of issue5.
