Nick Fury, that is, IN SPACE! With a tip-o-the-hat to Mighty God King (and to my buddy John for thinking of the idea), your challenge for the week is to come up with the funniest replacement dialog for Nick's second, shouted word balloon on this dynamic classic Marvel cover:
Make as many entries as you think appropriate in the comments to this post. The winner (as judged by Ye Olde Balde Avenger -- i.e. me) will get EITHER a custom black and white illustration of whatever he or she likes (within reason, and subject to a now-lengthy delay for completion) OR their choice of an outfit or related outfit items to be included in HeroMachine 3.
So put on your thinking caps (beneath your space helmet, apparently, but over your cigar -- also in a space helmet) and make with the funny!
