Steranko’s SHIELD comic was a wild, psychedelic ride.  It lasted about two years and only survived because Stan Lee was distracted and Steranko left most of Marvel editorial alone.  Back then, people bought just about anything, so even though it never clocked major sales, it paid for itself and was enough to help Marvel crowd DC off the stands.

Those were some mad creative days, before Marvel became so corporate.
