Marvel Television is proud to announce Eisner-award winning superstar artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man) as the newest recruit for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level 7, a new landmark initiative bringing top artists from around the world together to celebrate the final six episodes of the series’ inaugural season (airing Tuesdays, 8|7c on the ABC Television Network). Following the latest jaw-dropping episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Rivera’s piece brings fans a special look at Coulson’s team after the discovery of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s true nature.
As the Agents struggle to combat a threat unlike anything they’ve ever faced, they’re unaware that a greater one lies closer to home! “Providence”, the eighteenth episode of the series, premieres on Tuesday, April 15th, this week at a special time of 9|8c. “After this week’s big revelation, nothing will be the same for Coulson and his agents in a world without S.H.I.E.L.D.,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel TV. “We’re excited to work with a world-class talent like Paolo Rivera to create a stunning piece depicting the cold, unforgiving future of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Each poster released in this series will be available as limited edition high quality prints at http://www.marvelstore.com/ArtOfLevel7 with “Providence” scheduled to go on sale Friday, April 11th at 1:00am PST. These individually numbered prints are strictly limited to 100 copies and once they’re sold out, they won’t be available again from Marvel. “I’ve had the privilege of painting several of Marvel’s characters from the cinematic universe, but I had always wanted to paint Agent Coulson,” said Paolo Rivera. “Glad I finally got the chance!”
