Close up of Larry Hama handwriting from Fury Force helicopter pencil sketch

Joe, how Larry Hama pitched a military comic to Marvel called “Fury Force.” He sketched out six heroes — covert military types — along with a motorcycle, a van, and a secret base underground base.

Fury Force had a helicopter, too.
