Jim Steranko must really like Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles, as can be seen from the double-page spread above from Mediascene. Steranko not only did a first-rate pastiche of the classic Hound tale in Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD #3, but he's also illustrated a sequel to that story by Michael Hardwick, titled Revenge of the Hound.
Here are some sample pages from Steranko's SHIELD/Sherlock story.
Here are his illustrations for Hardwick's book.
The painting above of the great detective also served as a cover for a revived Argosy Magazine.
