Nick Fury has seen some things in the last six decades, he’s been front and center for some of Marvel’s most spectacular events, and played human vault to the biggest secrets in the Marvel Universe. Fury #1 is a brief history of this landmark anniversary set across Fury’s most well-known eras!
Come May, Al Ewing brings his story-telling talents to Fury #1 accompanied by a vibrant collection of the industry’s top artists: Scott Eaton, Tom Reilly, Adam Kubert, and Ramon Rosanas.
Our story begins when a mysterious new villain using the name S.C.O.R.P.I.O. sets their cross-hairs on Nick Fury Jr. It’s only fitting, as this codename has ties to Fury senior’s past and sets him on a course of top-secret missions that will lead a trail of breadcrumbs for fans to follow before revealing the bigger picture.
As Ewing’s story provides a constant throughline, each artist will present their unique take on the different lives of Nick Fury ranging from his days in the pages of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos to his current position as the omniscient “Man on the Wall”.
Sixty years in comics can change a man, and Nick Fury is no exception, but the one-shot will offer a pivotal moment for the character that hopes to refresh both father and son! When a gorgeous rogue agent draws Nick Fury into her dangerous secret, he discovers a whole new lifetime of thrills…his father’s! Take a trip from the ’40s, through the ’60s, and back to today as this adventure unlocks long-buried Fury files! One mystery looms largest, who is S.C.O.R.P.I.O.? Finding out is gonna require more than just one Nick Fury to make sense of decades of questions.
“Nick Fury is an entire history of comics in one character,” Ewing said. “Shifting from a tough-talking WWII Sergeant specializing in impossible missions, to an U.N.C.L.E.-esque secret agent beating James Bond at his own game, to a Machiavellian man in the shadows making the grey moral choices we’ve come to associate with the evolving espionage genre. And when the original Fury went cosmic, his son followed in those same footsteps, doing all that with a modern spin and an eye on the silver screen portrayal of our favorite sci-fi spy-guy. So how to celebrate sixty years of Nick Fury? With 40 story pages of twists, turns, action, gadgets and old-school thrills – pitting the Fury family against a new menace with a mysterious connection to the earliest days of the Howling Commandos and setting both Nicks up for the adventures of a lifetime! Don’t yield, true believer – back S.H.I.E.L.D.!”
