Fury's first mission for the O.S.S. has him hunting down a rogue
Japanese colonel with a cache of bio-weapons. The mission was successful,
however only Fury made it out alive and Ishii never saw a war crimes
tribunal for his use of POWs as test subjects for the chemicals.
In 1953 Nick Fury returned to Korea sans Howlers as commander
of a special mission to cripple the food supplies of North Korea
for that year. Landing along Korea Bay, the team headed for the
dam at Dyongyang. The team got caught in the explosions and only
three of the six-man team survived.
premise as these issues
open with great promise and delivers on the story arc's title with
a rare look into Fury's pre-S.H.I.E.L.D / post Howler career. The pair of
tales are a solid throwback to the character's war comic roots and
writers Bob Sharp and Elliot Brown cook some great stories and solid
sparse pencils by Don Hudson and Jerry DeClaire are straightforward
and realistic with some great layouts reminiscent to Jackson Guice's
work on the book.
