Comic Book Review: Nick Fury Agent of SHELD #16 - Marvel Comics (1990)

Apogee of Disaster part 2
"Uh, Houston, We Got a Problem"

Nick Fury and the Agents of SHIELD are in outer space on a mission to stop a man named PEter Lohan and his group of technicians from launching a satellite from a stolen space shuttle.

I received this comic book from the TeeBlox subscription service as part of their monthly t-shirt plus extra goodies.  This was a series I never got into when I was younger but I thought it might be fun to give it a read and let everyone know what I think about it.

Although this is the sixteenth issue in the series and part two of the overall "Apogee of Disaster" story line, it was easy to figure out what was going on.  The characters each had lines that made you understand where they were coming from and the way they were written, a person almost would not even need the balloon arrow to let you know who was talking.  It was definitely a fun read.

One of the things that caught my eye for this comic book cover was Nick Fury's signature cigar inside the spacesuit.  That is only for the cover but there is a reference to him needing a space suit to be able to do so within the comic book.  Back in 1990 maybe, but now that Disney owns Marvel, no more smoking in the comics, movies or television.

Herb Trimpe is the artist for this book and that made the book that much more fun.  The outer space scenes looked great and the interiors of the space ships looked fantastic.  Herb Trimpe has drawn so many great comics(first person to draw Wolverine in a comic book!) and it was cool to see him drawing the Agents of SHIELD in these perilous space combats.  This comic book exceeded my expectations.
