More then two decades after it was published, this story still remains one of the all-time best Nick Fury stories. Steranko skillfully weaves together a reworked Hound of the Baskerville with elements of WWII (the old Basil Rathbone movies?) and of course Nick Fury himself. The art is nothing short of amazing, from beginning to end there is not one panel that does not stun.
