    1. Marvel have a buncha weird oddball characters sitting around not doing much so why not lump them together into a team and pretend they re important to have around That s basically the idea behind Howling Commandos of SHIELD, a spooky Marvel team book comprising Dum Dum Dugan a Life Model Decoy that is , zombie Jasper Sitwell, Hit Monkey, Man Thing, Warwolf, Teen Abomination, Orrgo, Vampire By Night, and Manphibian.They wish they were half as decent as Dark Horse s BPRD or DC s Suicide Squad this [...]

    2. This could have been good but ended up being a well meaning fumble I can t help but feel it was thirty years too late to find its audience If it was 1986 and it had an accompanying toy range, this would have made a great Saturday morning cartoon As it was, it felt a little anachronistic and I m not surprised it failed to find an audience in today s big budget movie driven comicbook market.

    3. This was really good fun, bring me Monsterssssss please So dum dum Dugan is brought back to life, against his consent, as a life model decoy, L.M.D for short He can catch bullets and also has super strength The ever pessimistic and depressing, bossy boots Maria Hill puts him in charge of a load of monsters that are held in secret cells by SHIELD Teen abomination, Zombie a former agent of SHIELD turned into a zombie, Orrgo a space God alien , Vampire by Night, Warwolf, Man Thing, Amphibian, Nina [...]

    4. Let me start by saying the Spooky Monsters comic genre is kinda my thing Creature Commandos, The Tomb of Dracula Volume 1, Essential Werewolf by Night, Vol 1, Monster of Frankenstein Vol 1, The War That Time Forgot, Vol 1, etc I love em all I rarely rate below 3 stars, but this title was embarassingly bland given the potential, and it did absolutely nothing for me, which is, frankly, embarrassing, since I m not only the target audience, but an easy mark for it

    5. Read as individual issues.This series was just an almost perfect mix of horror, humour and action, a real must read for old Marvel monsters fans like me.What a shame Marvel canceled it view spoiler Robo Dugan and zombie Sitwell parts were the best ones, hope someone take them back sooner or later.And please, someone set free Dracula from S.t.a.k.e laboratories and give him back his old look, the new one Legacy of Kaine style really sucks hide spoiler br br br br br br br br br br br br br

    6. Ive always been a big fan of 1970s Marvel Horror comics so seeing a team filled with those characters was intriguing Overall this wasn t bad, but it didn t really have time to get going I think the series had potential but didn t really get a chance to reach it If you liked any of the other Howling Commando stories you ll probably like this one It s interesting to see SHIELD form a special branch with monster agents to deal with supernatural threats Not great, but still entertaining.

    7. I was ready to love this series, but instead merely liked it I think it might have worked better without the current status of Dum Dum Dugan as a self loathing LMD a revelation that still makes me angry I guess it explains a lot in terms of why he didn t age, but still However, there s a twist that is not very original, in that Dugan is now recast as Marvel s answer to NoMan from Tower s T.H.U.N.D.E.R Agents with 100 LMD bodies in reserve Even worse we get poor dead Jasper Sitwell as a zombie Th [...]

    8. I will buy anything with Man Thing in it, but I wish they d respect his continuity Glyph s story hooked me, but it took a while for me to track down the final issue, and it left way too many loose ends for a six issue series The cliffhanger on the final page of the fifth issue wasn t dealt with in the sixth, and Orrgo, who stars in the sixth issue, really isn t that interesting of a character Hit Monkey is just plain weird, but Nina, LMD Dugan and Zombie Sitwell get some interesting character d [...]

    9. This really shouldn t have worked A SHIELD team of Monsters whose purpose is to catch monsters And done like a Monster of the week But the characters were interesting and different And the team worked well together And the book was actually funny without being dumb A lightweight read, but a better than expected one 3.5 of 5.

    10. A fun book that ended too soonOne of Marvel s abbreviated ongoing, this book had tons of potential to be an amazing journey into the supernatural end of the Marvel U Instead, it ends with questions than answers But the issues here are all worth the read, so make sure you don t skip it the 2nd time around.

    11. What a rushed, unfinished mess This should have been a no brainer A Marvel Suicide Squad featuring classic Marvel monsters from a trusted alt comics creator Instead, this book felt likea rushed, unfinished mess so many plot threads left to dangle What happened here

    12. Cheesy good fun Best if you don t take it too seriously and treat it as an amusing one off I got a kick out of Orrgo and Hit Monkey Marvel has so many underrated oddball wacky characters.

    13. An abortive attempt to do for Marvel s monsters what Guardians of the Galaxy did for the cosmic characters, even down to having an early Kirby beastie with comedy speech patterns lined up for the Groot role Alas, Orrgo never quite excels in the same way his woodier contemporary did, and too often nor does anything else The backdoor pilot was written by Al Ewing, and even than his other Marvel work feels heavily 2000AD influenced WARNING THRILL LEVELS AT 90% AND RISING it is, as one has come to [...]

    14. I was first exposed to this iteration of the Howling Commandos while reading the SHIELD series with the first part of this story, and I liked the idea of a team full of monsters While I feel that they stretched the term monster a little bit why is Hit Monkey a monster, just because he is an intelligent monkey , and I don t understand why Man Thing stuck around after he was released from containment, given that he has historically been an almost mindless character, overall, I enjoyed this story T [...]

    15. Amongst all the seriousness of the marvel universe there was, for a brief time, a shining beacon of goofy light.S.H.E.I.L.D puts together a squad of monsters to deal with the weird stuff out there.A very silver age feeling book, the cast is a mix of mostly older characters and the menaces were not horrific and dark, but big menaces.I love that their science advisor is one of those big Kirby era space monsters and the first big bad guy they fought was the Sphinx and his army of zombie mummies.It [...]

    16. I love Hit Monkey, Man Thing, and Dum Dum They are all fun characters, some are creepy and some are action packed, but this comic turns them all into plodding garbage Everything about this is such a chore to get through Maybe there are too many characters and the writer was overwhelmed into boredom Who knows, but this is awful even though it looks like it was a fertile bed from which greatness could have grown.

    17. Similar to Demon Knights in DC s New 52 launch, Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D flew under the radar during Marvel s All New All Different launch, but was one of the most entertaining new books I definitely recommend this to people who like reading strong stories based around lesser known characters.
