Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic book covers coming soon. Seven in all, these variant covers for the likes of All-New X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy etc will be out in November. Also out that month is an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic book special which collects stories from Battle Scars, Secret Avengers, Avenging Spider-Man and Strange Tales.

OK I'm going to whine for a second. Those AOS covers have nothing to do with the books that they are associated with. Seems like a silly marketing stunt. I know it's just a comic book, but it kind of takes away the integrity of the comic.

If AOS continues to be a hit, I'm sure we will see more characters introduced into the Marvel Comic Universe like they did with Coulson.
shouldn't they be, you know, more comic-booky?
Yeah, it's a bit sort of corporate.
Wow, I hardly recognized Simmons , some weird lighting, angle, photoshop, and... everything... seems to be going on there.

But yeah I have to assume/hope those are placeholder logos? I mean with previous tie-in variant covers they've had pretty fun gimmicks or styles. If they didn't tie into the characters actually featured they at least did cute things like homages to various art styles.
This show will never work as a comic :P
It would be a pity if those are the covers and not placeholders like someone suggested--especially since you could do some pretty neat stuff with them. Like, have FitzSimmons working in a lab with Beast for the All New X-Men Cover or something...

Sure it will, BringItOn5x5!

It'll do fine as a comic once it gets cancelled.
