The 90's-Est Cover: Part 2: The Re-Avengening

So after last night's disheartening dive into the depths of my old comics, I had given up on finding anything from my youth to display. But then, while watching the Cubs getting beaten by the White Sox (God-Fucking-Dammit), I noticed another box of comics in my basement I hadn't seen last night, and after a quick flip-through, I came upon: Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1


Let's see, we have:
  • Foil
  • Smoking Gun
  • Gritted teeth
  • Unnecessary pouches
  • Artist with no clues as to how human anatomy actually looks
  • Flames in the background
  • Blood
So, yeah, that's fucking 90's.

Also - stupid eyepatch target dealie. That thing is rough.

What does the techno eyepatch thing do? Does it act like Daredevil's radar sense? Or is it just an eyepatch? A overly complicated eyepatch?

Also, I want to know about the special contest! Do you win a prize if you make it through the entire comic?! Is it cash? I want cash!!

I think the eyepatch thingy is for targeting an such. I tried reading it, but it was just terrible I mean, just awful. The sad thing is that it was written by Howard Chaykin.

Unfortunately, the only prize in this contest is the shame that you've wasted both the money on the book and the time digging through either your collection, or the quarter bins looking for it. You'll have to stick to selling your plasma for cash, Calvin.

There were some nice things about the comics in the 90's but you certainly brought a good example of how stupid they were
