    One thought on “Marvel Masterworks: Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Vol. 1”

    1. The past few Marvel movies (especially The Avengers) got me interested in Nick Fury, a character I'd never really given much thought. So I tried the first volume of Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Volume 1 from the Marvel Masterworks series, which covers Strange Tales #135-153 as well as two comics where Fury makes important appearances, Tales of Suspense #78, and Fantastic Four #21. You have to remember the time: the mid-60s, which means not only the Cold War, but the enormous popularity of th [...]

    2. Growing up and watching Marvel cartoons, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury we're given a mixed portrayal. While generally, the villains hated them, they also ended up fighting heroes like Spider-man and even the Hulk. This portrayal has gotten more nuanced with the militaristic S.H.I.E.L.D. being viewed with distrust in the wider Marvel Continuity.However, it wasn't always so. In the 1960s, with James Bond and the Man from U.N.C.L.E. a phenomena, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby launched Nick Fury, Agent of S.H [...]

    3. This Masterworks edition collects Strange Tales #135–153, Tales of Suspense #78 and Fantastic Four #21.It is on the stories on these pages that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby reinvented their WW2 hero Sergeant Fury (of the Howling Commandos) as the fearless leader of the greatest spy organisation in the Marvel universe, S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division). Kirby is mostly on layout duty, with a few exceptions (including the opening issue) where he's do [...]

    4. Like so many other characters in the 1960s, Marvel war hero Nick Fury went Bond with the Agents of SHIELD series. To his credit rather than a pale imitation, the comic-book setting allowed them to come up with more spectacular gadgets and weapons than SPECTRE or MI6 ever managed. The stories are uneven—the opening arc with Hydra is effective, but the Druid is a loser. A fun run, though not first-ranked for the Silver Age.

    5. Excellent reprint of these rare silver age stories. I enjoy these collected editions of the comics I remember reading as a kid. Great art and plot for the early days of Marvel Comics rebirth. Very recommended to any comic fan
