Nick Fury by Steve Dillon

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D was a British-originated version of the classic Marvel US series, which ran in Marvel UK's Hulk Comic #1-19 in 1979. Created by Steve Moore and Steve Dillon, it showed a version of Nick Fury seemingly more influenced by James Bond than the cigar-chomping American version, and also put him in a relationship with S.H.I.E.L.D agent Laura Brown and later with a new character, Annie Wong. The strip revolved for much of its run around the ongoing battle between S.H.I.E.L.D and an organization known as the SEPT, which was ultimately revealed to be under the control of the Yellow Claw.

Marvel UK also reprinted many of Fury's original American-produced adventures, in both his guises as World War II soldier and sixties superspy, in titles such as Mighty World of Marvel, Forces in Combat, The Titans, Savage Action and his own short-lived weekly, Fury. Alan Class Publishing also reprinted his adventures on occasion, in random issues of its various titles. In addition, Fury appeared in entirely original stories during the original run of Captain Britain (Comics), assisting Captain Britain (Brian Braddock), Captain America and Lance Hunter against the Red Skull and his agent Tod Radcliffe.
