Avengers Assemble - Nick Fury

The 49th of 51 sketch cards done for the Avengers Assemble trading card series by Upper Deck.

This is the only time I went away from using the first 100 issues of The Avengers as reference. I wanted to do (at least) 2 cards of the major players in the film and Nick Fury is basically a head on a monitor or guy in a t-shirt for most of his appearances (aside from the Scorpio story depicted earlier). So here I riff on Jack Kirby’s cover to Strange Tales #135 but giving him the Steranko-era uniform.

Nicholas "Nick" Joseph Fury created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
First appearance: Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #1, May 1963
First Avengers appearance: Avengers #32, 1966

I don't know what to say. This blog is fantastic. Thats not really a really huge statement, but its all I could come up with after reading this. You know so much about this subject. So much so that you made me want to learn more about it. Your blog is my stepping stone, my friend. Thanks for the heads up on this subject.
