With the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series just around the corner, I thought it only right to present the wild technology that Jack Kirby, introduced in the first two Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. stories all the way back in 1965. Look, we’re not saying that Stan Lee didn’t have ANYthing to do with these stories, or that John Severin didn’t rock the second story, but the tech would’ve been something put there when Kirby drew and provided notes to Lee for the first story and the breakdowns for the second. So, get set for some spytastic goodness courtesy of the King of Comics, and learn the roots of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Click here for the whole list!
