In Timeslip, a hot artist of today is taken back to 1962 to get handed an assignment by Stan Lee. So what happens when John K. Snyder III gets handed this assignment?Funny to me: Looking for a single piece of work he'd done for Marvel, they had to mention the Onslaught promo poster. Wow. Timeslip just doubled the number of pages he's done for the company. Anyway, his idea for Nick Fury is closer to Suicide Squad than it is to Onslaught:
So screw SHIELD, let's make Nick covert ops and friendless instead. Furthermore, let's make him Jonah Hex's only slightly prettier descendant. You know what sells it? Those taglines. "A loner with a license to kill" isn't very original, but I really like "there are no heroes without scars".
Imagine a comic where we jump around in time and see missions in every post-WWII conflict. That Cuba 1962 job alone would be worth the admission price.
How do YOU think Nick Fury should work?
