If you ever get a chance to meet Jim Steranko, don’t sleep on it. Steranko is a master storyteller. He is a legendary artist. This Nick Fury piece by Steranko was one that he brought to New York ComicCon 2023.
Steranko has said that his Nick Fury was based on Burt Lancaster. I think that becomes obvious in this one. Can you imagine Burt Lancaster in his prime as Nick Fury? Steranko can.
