Includes a sequence penciled by Jack Kirby and inked by Jim Steranko that has never seen print as part of a story before!
Plus: The return of Dum Dum Dugan and the birth of the new Howling Commandos! The very first SHIELD story from 1965! And the pilot presentation sequence that inspired the creation of SHIELD!

NEW COMICS COST HOW MUCH?!?:  Here's the price point breakdown for the Week of 08/26/15. This coming week, there are 172 NEW COMICS shipping with six price points ranging from $1.00 to $5.99. The largest concentration of books, as always, falls into the $3.99 price point with all other price points trailing far off into the back. This week sees an even stronger showing of $2.99 books attributable mainly to DC who is this weeks #1 shipper and still "Holding the Line at $2.99" at least on their new titles. There's also a wider spread of price points indicating that different segments of the market are not adverse to exploring higher cover prices. Remember, no matter what the price point, you save 15% OFF of ALL of this week's new comics all week long only at Alternate Reality!
