A Year of Cool Comics – Day 337
Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!
We continue the Cool Christmas Comic Countdown with a very Fury Christmas in Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD #10 by Gary Friedrich, Frank Springer and Johnny Craig!
Sadly, the first thing that must have struck a reader of this issue is “it’s no Steranko,” and it is true, Friedrich, Springer and Craig basically just try to do their best impression of Steranko. And ya know what? Steranko knock-offs can also be good comics!
I like these sort of Nick Fury stories – where he’s sort of dragging through life like a normal guy, until, of course, the alarm sounds and then he snaps to attention. Friedrich handles the transition well, I think…
And of course, speaking of Steranko…Fury’s mission takes him to a very Steranko-esque space station where the Hate Monger is planning an attack on the United States.
Things look pretty bad for Fury…
what WAS that object that deflected the bad guy’s ship? Could it BE?!!? Read the issue and figure out for yourself!!
