Strange Tales #154 - Jim Steranko art


Strange Tales v1 #154 featuring Nick Fury & Doctor Strange, 1967 - A robotic menace breaches the Shield helicarrier, summoned by a Hydra spy within their ranks. Starting with this issue, Jim Steranko fully takes over the art chores on Nick Fury. On the opening splash, the main characters stand against a backdrop of meticulously detailed technology (unfortunately marred by too much text and dialogue). Still, many pages contain the artist's eye-catching experimentations, including repetitive panels, x-ray effects and clever scene transitions. The robot's moment of attack, artfully captured as a full page splash (see interior page below), showcases Steranko's potential. This story was later reprinted in Shield #5. Other artists in this issue include Marie Severin. This is number 4 of 18 Strange Tales issues with Steranko art and/or covers.
