Shadow Of The Hound!
This fascinating cover by Bob Powell for this 1948 is of Street and Smith's Shadow Comics is a compelling image in its own right.
But it's been suggested and seems credible that it was also the inspiration for this iconic Jim Steranko cover for the third issue of the 1968 series Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD. Learn something new all the time.
And here's a close gander at Steranko's original for that fantastic cover. His work is even more impressive in black and white where the subtle line work is more apparent.
Above is the blood-drenched opening splash page from the story title "Dark Moon Rise, Hell Hound Kill!". To read the complete story (which I've featured here a few times), check out this fog-drenched link.
