Dynamite Entertainment continues its string of hit comics featuring pulp heroes with Miss Fury #1! Can it measure up to their other genre titles? Let’s take a look.
Wow. Rob Williams knows how to confuse AND entertain you in this book. On one page, even. I have to say, I REALLY enjoyed this book. It’s unlike anything that Dynamite is publishing today. Yes, it is part of Dynamite’s Pulp Heroes line, but that’s where the similarities to the rest of the line ends. This issue is literally all over the place, and it couldn’t be more enjoyable. I was shocked at how Miss Fury #1 was written: cliffhangers, mysteries, good old fashioned super heroics, fun, it’s really got it all. Not only do you get a fantastic adventure that finishing with a great cliffhanger ending, Williams also manages to sneak in a FULL and COMPLETE origin story into the issue about halfway through.
Good God, I hope Jack Herbert stays with this book. Forever. His art is, simply put, GORGEOUS! There is a ton of different things that have to be drawn here. Everything from rooftop fight scenes to jungle adventures to high society functions, and Herbert renders them all perfectly. Did I mention that he draws great looking women? Well, he does. There’s also some great close up human expressions done here. Just fantastic.
BUY THIS!!!….but, only if you’re over 17 years of age. This series is definitely NOT for the younger readers. That being said, it’s awesome. A proud addition to Dynamite’s excellent stable of pulp heroes.
