Agent of SHIELD--Art of Steranko!

Artist Jim Steranko got his feet wet with Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., his first assignment for Marvel Comics, by turning in finishes of Jack Kirby's layouts--but after three issues, he was given the full artistic reins and began to chart his own style for the super-spy organization. And in the next issue, he took over writing, as well! Here are a few samples of his early work, starting with the first schematic created of the helicarrier itself:

But let's get to the man of the hour himself--and whether that refers to Nick Fury or Jim Steranko, either way it's on target!

(The "Dyna-Soar" is not to be confused with one of the members of a certain branch of the Avengers. This was way before her time.)

Always loved Steranko.
