Strange Journey Into Astonishing Suspense Tales Part 1

Post by Russ Chappell » Sat May 16, 2015 10:02 am

Let's try something new.

Below you'll find a small part of a Marvel Comics page. Your job is to identify the title, issue, and page number where this snippet is found. Every day, I'll add a little bit more to the puzzle. If you can identify the origin of the piece, you'll be awarded the respect truly due you.

Think of it. You could be known as King of the Nerds, and ALL OTHER NERDS WILL TREMBLE BEFORE YOU.

Here's the first part:

I recognize it's a challenging beginning. It's supposed to be. In fact, if you can get this on the first day, you're pretty scary. :outtahere: But each day, things will get a little bit clearer.

The "sir" bit makes me think military, so maybe from Hulk, Sgt. Fury or SHIELD, maybe? Or it could be a scientist, I guess, which could mean anything. Hmn.

Fun! :)

Oh my, is that Kieron Dwyer art?

-edit-

It is! And it's from Captain America #350, page 5 at that! :)

Excellent! You used the clues available to you (distinctive art, cigarette smoker, post-Taskmaster debut). We'll return soon.
