[WARNING: Season 2 spoilers are included]
Following last year’s The Art of Level 7 campaign, which featured stylized posters for every Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode during the latter half of its 1st season, Marvel and Entertainment Weekly have partnered up again for this year’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Evolution campaign.
The first poster for this year’s campaign is for “Aftershocks”, the show’s midseason premiere. This piece is created by artist Gabriele Dell’Otto (X-Force) who, alongside comics writer Brian Michael Bendis, created the character of Daisy Johnson aka “Quake”. Dell’Otto is a natural choice for this work considering the fact that lead character Skye has been revealed to be none other than Daisy Johnson herself back during the midseason finale.
Check out the poster and the episode synopsis below:
Official episode synopsis:
“After discovering an alien city with ties to his resurrection, Coulson and his team destroyed it before the forces of Hydra could claim its secrets, eliminating the villainous Whitehall (Reed Diamond) in the process. But new threats to the world have arisen, including Skye’s father, Cal (Kyle McLachlan), who now seeks retribution against Coulson for stealing his revenge against Whitehall; a disturbing alliance between former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Ward (Brett Dalton) and Agent 33; the enigmatic Raina (Ruth Negga), who struggles with her transformation into something inhuman by the alien Obelisk and seeks vengeance; and Skye (Chloe Bennet), who developed mysterious new powers from the Obelisk but whose lack of experience with her new abilities may threaten the safety of those she loves.
Meanwhile, Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) and Mack (Henry Simmons) begin the next phase of a plan which seems to have grave repercussions for Coulson and his team, who are unaware that there’s another mysterious force moving against them. And as Hunter (Nick Blood) is forced to make the biggest choice of his life, Coulson will find his mission threatened by this shocking endgame.
In the midseason premiere, “Aftershocks,” Coulson’s team must deal with the consequences of their war with Hydra as shocking revelations threaten to tear them apart, and Hydra makes a dangerous move that may involve a traitor in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midst.”
Producer Jeffrey Bell also revealed to EW that “We’re doing 12 pieces—we’re doing it for the whole back half, which is exciting for us,”
