Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #18
Issue(s): Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #18
After establishing that Nick is in love with Pam and intends to propose to her...
...most of this issue has the Howling Commandos on one of their unbelievably dangerous and yet easy-to-pull-off missions.
But when Fury returns to base, he learns that Pam was killed in a German air raid.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Fury ends this issue distraught, which carries over into next issue. So we shouldn't have any other generic Nick Fury appearances in between.
Continuity Insert? Y

I think this is the comic referenced by Christian Slater's character, Clarence Worley, in True Romance when he is talking to Alabama (Patricia Arquette). Of course, the movie shows some modern 1990s Marvel Comic (I think either Sleepwalker or Deathlok, the art shows both) while he's talking about it.
The only flaw in the movie. ;)

According to the GCD Jack Kirby redrew Fury and Pamela on the splash and most of the last page.
