A Year of Cool Comics – Day 106

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we finish a two-part look at Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD, as appearing in Strange Tales. We finish with the Jim Steranko run!
.
Enjoy!

Steranko began finishing Jack Kirby’s layouts in Strange Tales #151, and it’s interesting to see the mixture of the two art greats…





Starting in Strange Tales #154, Steranko began doing the art himself…



but the biggest change happened in #155, when Steranko began writing the book as well as drawing it (and not even just plotting, but scripting the book, as well!)…



Steranko developed his style more and more as issues went by…




and soon, he was basically the Steranko we think of when we think of Steranko on Nick Fury…




and we even saw Steranko’s Captain America (as Steranko introduced the Contessa)…



Such a brilliant job Steranko did on this title.

If only they had kept it as a half of an anthology, we might have gotten a lot more Steranko greatness!
