Great Moments in Comics: Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #6

1968. Love that Steranko cover. And the rest of the issue wasn't bad either. To me, as a comic book reading kid of about 10 or 11 who hadn't yet heard of EC Comics, this illustration was just too cool for words. It was years later that I found out about Frank Frazetta and realized that this cover had to be an homage to EC's stable of science fiction comics and the unique imagery made famous by Frazetta.
