Nick Fury vs Shield #1 - Jim Steranko cover

Jim Steranko
Nick Fury vs Shield v1 #1, 1988 - Jim Steranko briefly returns to Marvel to illustrate the cover of this Nick Fury limited series. Although his graphic approach of the 1960s was his forte, he opts for a more painterly solution in this case. It gives the perfect-bound issue the look and feel of a spy novel. The relatively small masthead also suggests film posters of the 1970s. Other artists in this issue include Paul Neary and Kim DeMulder. This is number 1 of 1 Nick Fury vs Shield issues with Steranko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Steranko or Nick Fury vs Shield issues.
