Nick Fury, Agent of Shield #4 - Jim Steranko cover

Nick Fury Agent of Shield v1 #4 1960s marvel comic book cover art by Jim Steranko
Jim Steranko
Nick Fury, Agent of S.h.i.e.l.d. v1 #4, 1968 - One of the finest montages ever done in comics, this Jim Steranko cover employs illustration, photography and op art patterns. The black and white background purposefully contrasts against the large central figure. Note how the Marvel title "stamp" on the upper left corner is also devoid of color, which was a rarity during the time. Frank Springer's story art struggles but fails to match the calibre of Steranko's contribution. This is number 4 of 7 Nick Fury issues with Steranko art and/or covers.
