The bad: Nick Fury’s stories are just not that good.  I really, really wanted to like Jack Kirby’s work here–and the art is good–but the stories are just boring and silly.  Corny “bro” jokes, flying cars and it gets really old really fast.

Sadly, the Dr. Strange work is not much better.  The stories suffer from constant creator turnover and plotlines that feel like they’re constantly repeating themselves.

Creators: Nick Fury: Lee/Kirby; Dr. Strange: Roy Thomas, Steve Ditko (#144), Dennis O’Neil, Ditko (#145-146), Lee, O’Neil, Billy Everett (#147).
Grade: Fury: D.  Strange: F.
