Mighty Avengers #12
A nerve searing explosion
Art by Jim Steranko, Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. vol 1 #1. Cover date June 1968
A sterling piece of layout by Steranko. The clouds and the silver burst funnel your eye towards the next panel in the sequence. Steranko’s explosion is very pop, it’s of its time, grounded in a sixties sensibility. It floats on the page, with no visual cues for horizon or proximity to the ground. The burning fuel is captured realistically, arcing back and adding depth to the image, making up for the lack of any background detail.
Nick Fury Doesn’t Fuck Around.
