Marvel's number one superspy is back in his own solo comic with April's Nick Fury #1, written by James Robinson with art by ACO. The book looks to be a lot of fun, focusing on single-issue capers that take Fury all over the world and even into outer space.

But the really exciting thing is ACO's art. He did great work with Midnighter over at DC, but the preview pages on display here bring a whole new level of meticulously detailed psychedelic weirdness. He's clearing drawing inspiration directly from the work of Jim Steranko, the legendary artist who did career-making work on the original Nick Fury's solo comics in the 1960s. This alone is enough to get me on board for the new series.
