Steranko's SHIELD!


Here's a gallery of the great Jim Steranko's work on his signature series. You can watch his talent blossom as the covers roll.

Jack Kirby Layouts

Wally Wood Assist On Female



John Romita Assist












Here are some covers for reprints.





Here's a cover for the 80's revival of the series.


Here are the covers to the collections, which I read Steranko is not crazy about.



Here's a closer look at the Marvelmania poster.



Here are a couple of overseas oddities.



And here's a gorgeous original for an iconic SHIELD cover.


And here's a link to a full-blown Steranko SHIELD classic. "Dark Moon Rise, Hell Hound Kill!" is a lush tip of the hat to the awesome Arthur Conan Doyle classic Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles.



And finally here's a link to "Who is Scorpio?", the awesome story from SHIELD's debut number. See the tragic tale of Flip Mason. Thanks Joe.


And that's the ever-lovin' end!

  1. Beautiful Steranko artwork! I didn't know Wally Wood assisted on that Strange Tales cover. Inks?

  2. I got the Wood assist note from GCD. I'd imagine they had Wood touch up the figure of the girl. Steranko early on could be somewhat peculiar with human form.
