Marvel History 249: Sgt. Fury # 18

Issue: Sgt. Fury # 18
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Dick Ayers
Publication Date: May 1965

Brief Summary:


Sgt. Fury 18


Commentary:

And finally, something interesting happens again in a Nick Fury comic.

So, most of the issue is the Commandos on another mission to stop Nazis, I guess.  Fury is almost as disinterested in the mission as I am, although for a different reason: He's decided he's in love with Nurse Pam, and plans on asking her to marry him.  He almost loses the engagement ring in combat, but manages to recover it.  Close call!

But alas, Fury's beloved is killed in an air raid.  As Stan says, we'll have to see how the grief changes Fury in the next issue.


Favorite Panel:

Nicely done panel sequence at the very end of the issue when Fury finds out the fate of his beloved.

Next: Strange Tales # 132
