Nick Fury steps out on his own in a new ongoing series launching in April. Marvel's premiere super spy tackles a variety of missions across the Marvel universe and squares off against Hydra's Frankie Noble.
My Take: Espionage comics are a mixed bag but I think putting Nick Fury front and center adds a bit more weight to the series and ensures some initial eyes will give it a read plus the addition of Eisner Award winner James Robinson helps after his work on both the Scarlet Witch and Cable series. Check out some panels below.
