Synopsis:
Hydra hires a costumed assassin called Bulls-Eye to assassinate Nick Fury at a concert in Central Park by Country Joe and the Fish to which Laura has dragged him.

Insisting on sitting in the back, Fury makes himself an easy target for Bulls-Eye, who is not a master Marksman but instead developed a weapon that targets based on an individual's heartbeat. No unintended target can get in the way of his shot.

During "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine," Bulls-Eye successfully shoots Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D., not reaching him in time, although Bulls-Eye is shot in the chest and killed. Dum Dum Dugan declares Fury dead, and the reader is asked, "Is this the end?"

Reprinted/Collected in:
Marvel Masterworks: Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2007) HC vol. 03
S.H.I.E.L.D. Complete Collection Omnibus (2015) HC vol. 01

Notes:
This was the final issue in the series before it was revived the following year as a reprint book.

In Avengers #72, it was revealed that Fury was onto the assassination attempt and sent a Life Model Decoy. Only Dum Dum was aware that it was not really Fury who was shot.

Gary Friedrich was friends with Country Joe and the Fish and obtained permission to use their likenesses and quote their songs "Superbird" (which mentions the Fantastic Four and Doctor Strange in the quoted lyrics, as well as other non-Marvel superheroes in passages not quoted) and "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine," and gave them a tour of the Marvel offices.

Bulls-Eye's costume was based on Dick Hamilton's The Target, a 1940s character published by Novelty Press.

(Some information derived from Roy Thomas's introduction to Marvel Masterworks: Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. vol. 3. )
