The following list cameo appearances by Nick Fury in order chronological to Fury's life (well, I've tried at least).

  • The Incredible Hulk #342 (1988)
  • The Incredible Hulk #346 (1988)
    Clay Quatermain thinks his career is at an end following his adventures with the Hulk. Nick Fury shows up to claim his trusted agent, pulling him by the ear back to S.H.I.E.L.D. (literally). 
  • Dr. Strange (2) #1 (1988)
    Nick Fury is among the mourners at Dr. Strange's funeral. 
  • Quasar #1 (1989)
    Fury effectively narrates the origin of Quasar as the issue details his brief career as a rookie S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Appearances by Woo and Dum Dum makes this a nice issue for S.H.I.E.L.D. fans if they find it in the quarter box. Note on the continuity, since Woo and Dugan appear in the issue and S.H.I.E.L.D. is seen to be in its glory, then despite the 1989 publication date, I've placed it prior to the events of Nick Fury Vs S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • The Incredible Hulk #339 (1989)
    Flashback that ties into the end of Spectacular Spider-Man #112, where it seems that S.H.I.E.L.D. shot dead the mutant Ashcan, in fact Nick Fury arranged his "death" and placed the troubled child with a foster father.
  • Marvel Graphic Novel: Rick Mason, The Agent (1989)
    Nick Fury in disguise hires Rick Mason to go down south of the border and investigate a coup. Interestingly, the meeting between Fury and Mason is watched by an eye-patch wearring spy.
  • Marvel Fanfare #47 "Renovation" (1989)
  • Punisher (1) #29 (1990)
    Acts of Vengeance crossover is notable as one of the first guest-shots for Nick Fury following the launch of the new S.H.I.E.L.D. (two months to be precise). Fury makes it known to the Punisher that he knows who he is, making this possibly the first meeting between both men in their present capacities.
  • The Infinity Gauntlet #1-2 (1991) - cover appearance (#1)
    Reprinted in The Infinity Gauntlet TPB
    The first two issues feature Nick Fury, once again in the thick of things doing his best to coordinate relief for the global disasters. The event provides a great opportunity for penciler George Perez to draw most of the Marvel universe, including a great intro shot for Nick Fury.
  • The Avengers #332 (1991)
    The Avengers open a new base and throw a huge bash, among the guests are Fury (and Wolverine) in a tux!
  • X-Force #1 (1991)
    Another minor monitor screen cameo as G.W. Bridge puts a call through to Nick Fury.
  • X-Men (1) #1-3 (1991)
    Magneto attacks Genosia and Nick Fury finds himself watching an escalation by the U.S. and U.S.S.R. to destroy the mutant. Fury tips off the X-Men various times throughout the story to prevent disaster.
  • Wolverine (1) #43 (1991)
  • X-Force #5 (1991)
    Cameo wherein Fury is present at a meeting to determine who should go after Cable; also present G.W.Bridge and Henry Gyrich.
  • X-Factor #70 (1991)
    Fury drops in in the wake of happenings at Muir Island to bring Mystique and Val Cooper so they can reconcile with Rouge.
  • Wolverine (1) #50 (1992)
    Wolverine crashes his motorbike into the helicarrier bridge. Classic stuff.
  • Iron Man (1) #282 (1992)
    Rhodes plays hardball with Fury and the 'Howler' appeases, and offers Rhodey a job no less; see War Machine #1 for more.
  • Iron Man (1) #284 (1992)
    Fury learns of Stark's "death"; "Guys like Stark die young--and old geezers like me are still hangin around. It just ain't right"
  • Excalibur (1) #56 (1992)
    Nick Fury drops in on a funeral where he offers some information to clear the name of the deceased.
  • The Uncanny X-Men #286 (1992)
    A very minor monitor-screen cameo.
  • Wolverine (1) #53 (1992)
    The Marvel card game and Nick Fury is there.
  • Wolverine: Inner Fury (1992)
    Fury gives Wolverine the heads-up on a rouge Hydra scientist who is looking to use Wolverine to test his latest nano-tech virus. One page cameo, but noteworthy as its written by D.G. Chichester.
  • Punisher/Captain America: Blood & Glory #2 (1992)
    Fury kills Cap; after all, what are friends for. Look for Dum Dum and the Contessa.
  • Deathlok (1) #10 (1992)
    Deathlok and Ghost Rider mix it up in NYC courtesy of Nightmare. Following the scuffle, Nick Fury arrives and brings Deathlok back to the Helicarrier for repairs. As Ghost Rider rides away Fury remarks "Pretty rude company you're keepin. Didn't even offer me a light off his head".
  • Deathlok (1) #12 (1992)
    Deathlok does S.H.I.E.L.D. a favor and Fury drops by to deliver some news; Deathlok's wife is pregnant. Later their conversation is interrupted by overzealous agents who think Fury is in danger.
  • Deathlok (1) 1992 Annual
    Pin-up appearance for Fury.
  • Daredevil/Black Widow: Abattoir (1993)
  • The Infinity Crusade #6 (1993)
    Another of Fury's patented one-panel monitor cameos; Reed reports to Fury that everything is fine once again.
  • Daredevil #321-322 (1993)
  • Captain America (1) #411 (1993)
    Cap puts in a call to Fury for some info on Snapdragon. Nothing more then a quick cameo, but the Rick Levins art is great. A rare showing of Fury in the Mark Gruenwald years.
  • Captain America (1) #414 (1993)
    Quick cameo as Fury shows up in the aftermath of Captain America breaking into the AIM tech show. A chummy appearance, but little else here of interest.
  • Wolverine #61 (1993)
    Wolverine and Jubilee get picked up by Nick Fury for a covert mission.
  • Wolverine #65 (1993)
    Fury relunctently lends a hand to a funeral as a favor to Wolverine.
  • Captain America (1) #420 (1993)
    Five pages of S.H.I.E.L.D. action as Fury and Cap fight side by side raiding one of the Red Skull's bases. Silent cameos by Pierce, Clay and even former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Quasar drops in. Small appearance, but worth getting if you see it cheap.
  • X-Men (1) #25 (1993)
    Its Magneto against the world again, and Nick Fury stands by and looks somber. Basically a one-panel cameo.
  • X-Men (1) #26 (1993)
    Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. are called in to run interference against the Avengers, who are bent on going to Genosia. Dugan is seen acting as director and Fury and Captain America share a tense moment. Good appearance, but brief
  • (Marvel UK) Warheads #3
    Fury calls in Iron Man to study a battle glove recovered from the MYS-Tech Warheads. Basically just a view screen cameo.
