following list cameo appearances by Nick Fury in order chronological
to Fury's life (well, I've tried at least).
Incredible Hulk #342 (1988)
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).
Strange (2) #1 (1988)
Nick Fury is among the mourners at Dr. Strange's funeral.
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.
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.

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.
Fanfare #47 "Renovation" (1989)
(1) #29 (1990)
Acts of Vengeance crossover is notable as one of the first guest-shots
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
Infinity Gauntlet #1-2 (1991) - cover appearance
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 open a new base and throw a huge bash, among the guests
are Fury (and Wolverine) in a tux!
Another minor monitor screen cameo as G.W. Bridge puts a call through

(1) #10 (1992)

to Fury that everything is fine once again.
- Daredevil #321-322 (1993)
America (1) #411 (1993)
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.
America (1) #414 (1993)
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
Wolverine and Jubilee get picked up by Nick Fury for a covert mission.
Fury relunctently lends a hand to a funeral as a favor to Wolverine.
America (1) #420 (1993)
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.

Its Magneto against the world again, and Nick Fury stands by and looks
somber. Basically a one-panel cameo.
