Comic Book #21 -- February 21, 2013

Marvel's Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created Sergeant Fury and His Howling Commandos in 1963.  Stan Lee claims that he made a bet with Marvel's publisher that Lee and Kirby could make a successful book with the worst possible title.  The Howling Commandos were a special forces team led by Sergeant Fury through actions in Europe, Asia and elsewhere.  Nick Fury later went on to a career as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
