Starting May 1, 2009, BoomBrothers.net, an online action and adventure web site, will conduct a sweepstakes to give away six sets of Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos comics. A complete year's collection of 12 issues of Sgt. Fury will be given away each week to six lucky winners that enter the contest on the Boom Brothers web site. Each comic book is in mint condition and has been sealed in a package for over four decades. All anyone has to do to enter is go to http://www.BoomBrothers.net and sign up. And it is free.
The Sgt. Fury comic book series was the brain child of Marvel Comics' Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, two of the most famous names in comic book history. The series was very popular and ran for 167 issues from May 1963 to December of 1981. Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos were a group of nine specially selected U.S. Army Rangers who served under Captain "Happy Sam" Sawyer. Fury was the cigar-chomping noncom who led the racially- and ethnically-integrated unit. Members of the Howling Commandos included an Afro-American, a Jewish soldier, a British soldier, and a German defector among a diverse group of otherwise American soldiers. The main character, Sgt. Nick Fury, later became the leader of Marvel's super-spy agency, S.H.I.E.L.D.
"Our Boom Brothers comic book sweepstakes is sort of a gift for our readers." said the series Creative Director, Richard Parker. "We think giving away a full year -- 12 issues -- of these very entertaining publications to somebody every week is a great 'thank you' for those loyal fans who visit us regularly." In fact, past issues of Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos have become collectors' items and many are quite valuable. The web's Comics Price Guide lists a copy of a premiere issue of Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos as worth up to $1,800.
