regular penciler Frank Springer teams up with Archie Goodwin
and craft another winning mind bender of a tale. Breaking comic convention
yet again, Springer's layouts depict the delusions from Fury's POV for
a number of pages. Among the hallucinations are cameos from Baron Von Strucker,
the Yellow Claw, and oddly enough the Centuries. Also making a reappearance
is a bit of tecnobabble about "vortex" beams. Oddly enough Goodwin would
recycle this plot nearly verbatim, with Nick Fury saving a drugged Spiderman
20 years later in Marvel Super Heroes Winter Special.
