New Agent May Comic

September 30, 2015 by Leave a Comment

To celebrate 50 years of S.H.I.E.L.D. there’s a new one-shot comic coming out today that’s based on Agent May written by Jody Houser.

TV Insider spoke with Houser about the issue of “Don’t Call Her the Cavalry”.

Here are a couple of questions from the interview:

Last season the show revealed some of May’s backstory—namely why she’s called “The Cavalry.” Will we see some more in the comic?

The comic touches on the events that led to her nickname, but the focus is more on how that tragedy and other experiences in her long career as an agent shaped the woman she is today, and how others see her. In both universes, May keeps her cards close to her chest, so seeing how her past translates into present action is one of the best ways to understand her.

Will there be any Easter eggs or surprises for regular TV show viewers in the comic?

There are definitely some Easter eggs for both viewers of the show and fans of the brilliant Ming-Na Wen. Some are easier to spot than others, so readers should keep an eye out!
