  • Tales of Suspense #92 (1967) - cover appearance
    Bearing the subtitle "Before My Eyes...Nick Fury Died!!", the Howler does very little other then fall off the barber's chair. The rest is Captain America's show.
  • Tales of Suspense #95-96 (1967)
    Cap decides to retire and hang up the shield (back when it was an original idea) but Fury and Dum Dum say 'no way'.

  • Iron Man #10 (1968)
    S.H.I.E.L.D. wants answers and Fury and Jasper show up to bring shellhead in. A really good 5 page appearance
  • Captain America #101-102 (1968)
    Cap and Sharon Carter take their lead from Col. Fury as S.H.I.E.L.D. takes on the Red Skull and the Sleepers.
  • Captain America #104 (1968)
    Fury plays Felix Leighter to Cap's 007 when the Red Skull slaps a nuclear strip to the back of Cap's neck which if removed will set off a A-bomb in Washington. LMD's, Sharon Carter and SHIELD agents galore!

    Brief interlude showing Black Widow training to join S.H.I.E.L.D. under the supervision of Fury and Dugan.
  • Avengers #60 (1969)
    Another Marvel wedding (I guess the 60's was the season of love), this time Hank Pym and Wasp. Nick Fury lounges about in the back, but he's nowhere to be seen when the action hits, I guess he'd punched out..
  • Captain America #109 (1969)
    Reprinted as a bonus comic with Toy Biz's Marvel Legend's Captain America action figure in 2002
    Cap is depressed and Nick Fury drops by to hear the story of his life, proving that no good deed goes unpunished.
  • Captain America #113 (1969)
    Cap is feared dead (again!), so Nick Fury throws him an all-star funeral which Madame Hydra and her hordes crash. Although its merely a cameos, this is a must have as it marks the last time Steranko handled Fury.

  • Captain America #121 (1969)
  • Captain America #124 (1969)

  • Iron Man #18 (1969)
    Its Cap, Fury and 'shellhead' together in the first two pages, that's it folks.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man #86 (1970)
    One-panel cameo for Fury in the Black Widow's flashback. That's all.
  • Iron Man #33 (1970)
    Cover appearence, shame that its an imposter from Spy Master's ring of villains and not the real Fury at all.
  • Captain America #132 (1970)
    The S.H.I.E.L.D. team talk about the impact of Bucky Barnes' return from the dead Wonder where Nick Fury's Winter Solider briefings were during this issue?
  • Captain America #135-137 (1970)
    Fury and company cameo as another wacky S.H.I.E.L.D. scientest goes ape and threatens Project Earth-Dig. Notable as the first time Falcon is introduced to S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Fantastic Four World's Greatest Comics Magazine #6-7, 12 (2001)
    Tribute series written in 2001, this storyline takes place just after Fantastic Four #100. Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. put in a good appearence in issues #6 and 7, just one panel cameo for Fury in the last issue.
  • Avengers #92, 94-96 (1971)
    Its the famous Kree-Skrull War storyline and Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. are right in the middle of it with the Avengers brought before Congress. Fury gives the Avengers alot of help when he can. Classic Fury line to the anti-super hero senator , "Craddock, did anyone ever tell you yer a first-class pain-in-the-assignment?"
  • The Incredible Hulk #148 (1971)
    The sun is threatened with destruction and S.H.I.E.L.D. and Fury are on hand to provide technological aid. Also possibly the first instance of an LMD for an alien species.
  • Iron Man (1) #40 (1971)
    Fury scolds Stark for cancelling on an international meeting. That's it.
  • Captain America (1) #143 (1971)
    Fury and Sharon review the events of the last couple of issues for Dugan, including the destruction of the helicarrier.
  • The Incredible Hulk #152 (1972) -cover appearence
    The Hulk is captured at last to be put on trial. A virtual who's who of Marvel guest-star including Nick Fury (who is seriously not getting along with Captain America). Nice cover appearence.
  • Captain America #150-151 (1972)
    A furious Fury boots Captain America out of S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ for not joining S.H.I.E.L.D., but Cap feels there's more to it then just that. Not a very nice appearence and the begining of a rather forgettable storythread running through the next three issues wherein Val makes Fury jealous by making passes at Cap. Really quite beneath all of these characters, shame on Gerry Conway.
  • Avengers #108 (1972)
    Fury puts in a call to Avengers mansion to help with finding the Sentinels.
  • The Incredible Hulk #164-165 (1973)
    With General Ross prisoner of the Soviets, Nick Fury is poised to mount a rescue with S.H.I.E.L.D.. However the Air Force decides to send in thier own team. Not much here to see.
  • Avengers #118 (1973)
    Loki and Dormamou unleash demons and devils and S.H.I.E.L.D. joins to back up the Avengers and the Defenders. Notable as Fury has to shoot the Countessa when she turns into a demon and attacks him. Of course all is forgotten as Fury's mind is wiped by Dr. Strange in the next chapter of the 6-part crossover branching The Avengers and the Defenders..
  • The Defenders #11 (1973)
    Fury's mind is wiped by Dr. Strange in this epilouge to the 6-part crossover branching The Avengers and the Defenders. Before the mindwipe, Fury finds time to compliment the Scarlet Witch for her role in the battle. Minor, minor appearence.
  • Captain America #161 (1973)
    Cap drops by S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ to ask if anyone had seen Sharon Carter, but gets a rough reception instead.
  • Marvel Team-Up #13 (1973)
    This issue is a double first as Spidey meets Cap for the first time, but also Nick Fury and his agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as they all team up to defeat the Grey Gargoyle.
  • Captain America #181 (1974)
    Cap puts in a phone call to Fury and Dugan as Nomad. Nothing else.
  • Dr. Strange (1) #2 (1974)
    Inside a realm of unreality, Strange encounters several visions of various heroes, including Nick Fury. 
  • The Incredible Hulk #187-188 (1975)
    Mostly notable for Clay Quartermain's induction into the world of the Hulk, Nick Fury guests basically to oversee everyone. Good art though and a strong S.H.I.E.L.D. pressence. 
  • Creatures on the Loose #34-35 (1975)
  • The Incredible Hulk #199 (1976)
    Clay puts in a call to Fury for more cool S.H.I.E.L.D. gizmos and gadgets.Check out the hoverbase! 
  • Marvel Team-Up #51 (1976)
    At the trial of the Wraith, Fury watches on a monitor from HQ as Spiderman, Iron Man, and Dr. Strange deal an unexpected courtroom battle...of the super hero kind.
  • Uncanny X-Men #89 (1976)
    Blink and you miss it corner cameo of Nick Fury and the Countessa among the Christmas crowds at Times Square.
  • Marvel Spotlight #32 "The Spider-Woman" (1977) -cover appearence
    Fury barely cameos, as yet another sexy super-heroine comes gunning for him seeking revenge (sheesh!) only to learn she's been manipulated somehow. The story is somewhat flat, although Fury gets one good line;"Spider-Man should sue this dame for violation of superpowers!".
  • Marvel Two-In-One #28 (1977)
    Fury and the FF ponder Deathlok (from last issue) and how to free him from the Fixer's grasp. The first a run of nearly 6 issues with Thing delivering Deathlok in London, with occasional cameos by Fury.
  • Marvel Two-In-One #30 (1977)
    Having dropped off Deathlok to a doctor in London, the Thing gets a call from Fury to apprehend Spider Woman. Thing agrees, with a cache of Cuban cigars as payment..
  • Marvel Two-In-One #34 (1977)
    Fury walks in and collects Deathlok the Demolisher in London from the Thing..and finally gives ole blue eyes his well deservered Cuban cigars.
  • Iron Man #105 (1977)
    Nick Fury steps in and confers with Sitwell and Jack of Heart among others about the recent takeover of Stark Industries. Classic line; "I must be the most recognized secret agent in the whole world!"
  • The Rampaging Hulk Magazine #3 (1977)
    The Bloodstone back-up story sequels Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #2 with the return of Centirius and actor Brad Carter. Sadly Nick Fury makes only a token appearence.
  • Godzilla #1 (1977)
    The Toho studios beast makes his Marvel debut and Fury is on the scene, but its actually Dum Dum and Jimmy Woo's story (and series for that matter).
  • Captain America #217 (1978)
    Fury introduces Cap to the new Super Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and asks him to train them. Cap refuses and instead stiffs Falcon with them.
  • Avengers #167 (1978)
  • Fantastic Four #197 (1978)
    Fury rescues Reed Richards from a splashdown in the Atlantic and asks him for his P.O.G.O. plane that S.H.I.E.L.D. has kept in storage. Watch for Gabe in the background too.
  • Spider-Woman #7 (1978)
    A typical monitor cameo appearence for Fury, congratulating Hunt and Spider-Woman for a job well done.
  • Marvel Team-Up #71 (1978)
    Cap is struck down by a posion and he's brought to Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. while Falcon and Spiderman look for the antidote. A rather chummy appearence at issue's end.
  • Thor #271 (1978)
    The world faces armagedon from a power-mad computer. Fury does his best to save the world, but ultimately its up to Thor and Iron Man..
  • Iron Man #117 (1978)
    Bit of a prolouge to the events of issues #118-119 with Nick Fury presiding over a meeting aboard the helicarrier.
  • Iron Man #120 (1979)
    Flashback to events of issues 118 and 119.
