Nick Fury #1 - "The Sky High Caper"

It began with me asking editor Mark Paniccia why no one had done a comic with young Nick Fury. -- James Robinson

Fury escapes in his flying car and Hydra give chase in their flying boat:

While very pretty, I've heard from people it's a lot if flash with little substance or exploration. Reading it here... it's okay bit not much else. I'm not sure what to think here.

After two issues, there's really no ongoing, larger story aside from a sort-of-one-sided spy rivalry with Agent Noble. The writing isn't even campy enough to be fun, it's just sort of... there.

I HATE the art style. It's like they're trying to be overstylized and went too far overboard.

The art style to me isn't the problem. It's very visually striking... to the point where it is complete and utter visual noise. That's the biggest problem with the art (same problem with Wacky Raceland and the Winter Soldier comic a while back).

I'll give it this, Aco can REALLY strange his art style up a lot. So different than his work on Midnighter.

It's no Steranko, but it really wants to be. :)

I see Juniors going for that 70s spy era theme.

I get what they're doing, but this art doesn't really do it for me. Frankie, especially, looks absolutely ridiculous.
And that's not a bad thing, if the writing was silly enough to match the art, but it doesn't add up.

Kinda James Bond-ish.

-why no-one had done a comic with young Nick Fury-

... but they have. He's been in several stories by now.
Including ones where he's the main character.
Problem is Marcus Johnson is just not very interesting.
At all.

Or does Robinson mean comic series, rather than just individual stories and one-shots?

I'm just tickled by the Warhol-pastiche Red Skull.

I recall reading this a few weeks ago and thinking it was very okay. #NotMyFury

Visually colorful and distinct, with captivating storytelling accomplishing exactly what was intended. Inter-

Oh, hang on. It's not exactly what I expected it to be, nor does it immediately fit with previous preconceptions.

0/5, then, and may it quickly be consigned to the oblivion of cancellation.
