    Jack Kirby and John Severin - Strange Tales #138 Cover (Marvel, 1965). Wah-hoo -- "Sometimes the Good Guys Lose", but not on the day when the indomitable Nick Fury battled the hordes of Hydra and squashed their plot to drop the Betatron bomb! Two comics legends, Jack Kirby and John Severin, teamed to detail this unforgettable Marvel masterpiece, and ol' Nick out-Bonded James Bond in this Cold War thriller! This was the only Nick Fury cover that the two titans, Kirby and Severin, collaborated on, and its power is undeniable! The cover was carefully pieced together using several art patches, but they do little to affect the overall eye-appeal of this cover. There are several small and faint stains in the center and at the lower left, and the issue number box is a replacement; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition. The image area of the cover is 13.25" x 20"; the paper has been trimmed right to the image area. Face Front, and don't yield-- back SHIELD!
