The hit Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning FX TV series, The Shield, comes to comics in all its edgy, fast-paced glory!

When a famous TV journalist is murdered, the media spotlight falls on the Barn. Captain Aceveda orders everyone to be on their best behavior — which hampers the style of Vic Mackey and his Strike Team. As with the popular TV show, interweaving cases affect everyone on the force, with suspenseful and surprising results.

This trade-paperback edition collects the five-issue miniseries, which is the only licensed fiction ever approved and published based on the TV series created by showrunner Shawn Ryan. Ryan was a fan of the book and wrote a glowing afterword for the collection.
