Hey comics fan, got any plans this weekend? If you're like me you're at a bit of a crossroads during this time of year. The NFL season is over, the Olympics are over, Oscar Season is over...what are you supposed to do? Well fear not because Convention Season has just started! That's right, chances are that we'll be bringing the 2010 DC Nation Tour to a town near you sometime soon and trust me when I tell you that it's a show you won't want to miss.
Check it out, DC Nation! Rising star Marco Rudy summoned up his inner Steranko and channeled it all into this fantastic double-page spread for the Shield #7. Awesomely inked by the Mighty Mick Gray and beautifully colored by the amazing Art Lyon, the powerful scene that the excellent Eric Trautmann wrote has been brought to life in a big, big way!

Well, we'll tell you! Or, better said, ADVENTURE COMICS Assistant Editor Wil Moss will tell you. Take it away, Wil:
Interesting fact about Lt. Joe Higgins, a.k.a. the Shield: he does not consider himself a hero, let alone a super one. For Lt. Higgins, the experimental warsuit he wears saved his life and enables him to continue doing his duty. It's his honor to serve his country and uphold its ideals, and even if the style of his uniform has changed, his commitment to it has never wavered. Higgins doesn't think of himself as a hero, he thinks of himself as a solider of the United States Armed Forces, now and until the day he lays down his arms.
