    Jack Kirby and Anonymous Unpublished Partially Inked Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Try-Out Page Original Art (c. 1965). Here's an unusual piece to say the least, and gives us a peek into the process of drawing Nick Fury during the mid-sixties. This partially inked page (by an unknown inker) depicts the ceaseless struggle between the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and their arch-rivals in Hydra. The art may have been a "try-out" page that was used to give a potential inker a tryout. It's noteworthy to point out how much Nick Fury resembles Jack Kirby himself in panel one, making this a compelling and rare piece of Marvel lore from its time. In Very Good condition, with an image area measuring 12.5" x 18.5".
