Hickman's S.H.I.E.L.D. #5

One of the most confusing mega-battles I've ever seen in comics; not because it's badly written in a technical sense, but because it's an inherently confusing setup.

I love the concept and 99% of the batshit secret history details of S.H.I.E.L.D., but perhaps I have to accept that the plot itself is both muddled and rather pointless — huge but unclear stakes, confused motivations, and no game rules.

Maybe the next issue will resolve some of this, but so far I'm disappointed. It's not worse than the average Event Finale, but the world-building, specially at the beginning, and the visuals, suggested it could be so much more. (That said, Hickman does tend to be absolutely superb at world-building and war setup, and rather wooly in his resolutions.)
