Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. 6 cover recreation by Steranko

We all remember this classic cover to Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 by Jim Steranko...

The first issue with only a cover and with the interiors done by other creators, sob!  Still this became an iconic cover, was homaged by Superman once, and I think it was also a poster.  I loved the design and execution of it.

Steranko did a recreation of this cover, sans the logo and stuff, in the 1980s according to The Drawings of Steranko.  The recreation is cool, especially for the coloring, but somehow I prefer the original cover.  How about you?  Nuff Said!
