Sgt. Fury # 19

Issue: Sgt. Fury # 19
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Dick Ayers
Publication Date: June 1965

Brief Summary:

Sgt. Fury 19


As you might expect, our man Nick Fury takes the death of his girlfriend (as seen last issue) pretty hard.  On their furlough, he takes his Commandos off to find the Nazi who ordered the air raid that killed Pamela.

Stan doesn't have a problem with said Nazi hurtling to his death, but he does not have his hero, Fury, kill him in cold blood.  Even in wartime, Stan likes to keep his heroes a little cleaner.  While this makes sense for heroes like Spider-Man, who's really just a kid, or the X-Men, you'd think that he wouldn't mind having Fury really off a Nazi.

Nevertheless, Fury gets his revenge, and the Commandos do not get their furlough.

Favorite Panel:

Yeah, cause without that bumber-shoot...
