THE PULP HEROINE RETURNS! When Miss Fury foils a wartime plot by Nazi secret agents, she is catapulted through time... or so it seems. Is she really careening from past to future and back, or has she lost her mind? And if her sanity remains intact, can one lone heroine possibly hope to end World War II by herself, a conflict still waged into the year 2013? As witness to generations of bloodshed and violence, Miss Fury has lots of righteous rage... and anger is her fearsome power!

    If you have read enough of my reviews you will know that I'm always game for a story about a sexy ass kicking chick and this one is exactly that. Also Nazi's are always a good route to take for the villains in a story. I am excited to see where this book goes. If you read the other Dynamite hero books like Green Hornet or the Spider you will dig this book with a spoon! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Brittany Villarreal Apr 3, 2013

    I heartily look forward to the second issue and give this one a five out of five. I have no complaints and I feel like it has started with a great platform to launch from. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Apr 6, 2013

    Some of the flashback scenes are pure Mills, as we get to see Drake in a bubble bath and steaming up the social scene with Mills-inspired evening wear. Williams knows who his character is and how she fits into her time, and it will be interesting to see how he fits her into today's world. So far, I think Tarp Mills would be proud of where her creation has landed, with her stiletto heel planted firmly on a Nazi throat. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - JohnP Apr 5, 2013

    So if you are a fan of pulp comics, if you've been loving Masks, or if you just love a great comic with a badass female hero and great art, you should be picking up Miss Fury. This issue is a very promising start to a series that I hope to see run for quite a while. As I said, Dynamite's pulp line is one of the best things in comics today and if you aren't on board then the time to jump in is now. Read Full Review

    Comic Addicts - Anubhav Dasgupta Apr 9, 2013

    What may prove to be problematic is the direction they are taking the story. I won't reveal it to you, but I've got an inkling that after this fresh, fantastic start, Miss Fury will start to tread familiar pulp hero tropes. I hope it doesn't happen but even if it does, I'll be riding along because Madame Marla Drake has completely charmed me. Read Full Review

    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Sep 2, 2013

    Overall, this was a strong first issue and definitely made me want to read more.  My only real criticism is about the gratuitous bloody sex scene and "nearly naked" shots of Marla in the tub. Those really are not necessary -- they add nothing to the story and are clearly just there for the titillation factor. I understand that titillation sells comics, and in a weaker story I could see it being needed to make a few sales. But I don't think these were necessary here, when the rest of the story was strong enough to carry the book, and the art was so good in general.  However, that's a minor beef, and otherwise this is a very solid comic-book.

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Apr 5, 2013

    Some creative issues aside, what isnt in question here is that Miss Fury #1 represents the start to what could be a rather unique plot for a character whose significant reintroduction is long overdue, especially in a comic market currently experimenting with female led titles to a significant degree. Ill certainly be back next month to see where that final page leads our erstwhile heroine next. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy Apr 9, 2013

    All in all, I am looking forward to this series. I want to see where Williams, Herbert and Nunes are taking this story as I think they make a wonderful team. This was a good introduction to a new character for me, and hopefully once we get to take in more of what is in store here I can upgrade my thoughts to being a great first story arc.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Apr 3, 2013

    Williams crafts a fresh, yet mature, origin story for Miss Fury. There are more questions than answers, but there's enough here to entice you to come back. With an interesting story and great art, Miss Fury is one older readers need to keep an eye on 3.5/5 Read Full Review

    So while neither the story nor the art were perfect, they were both overall better than average. And both showed glimpses of potential greatness. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Apr 28, 2013

    Definitely worth reading more of, but also quickly worth dropping like a hot potato if the narrative doesn't streamline better over the next few issues, Miss Fury is another worthwhile updating of a forgotten Golden Age character from Dynamite. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Apr 8, 2016

    Bechko and Lau offer a lot for "Miss Fury" #1. The atmosphere is great. They have a strong understanding of the characters and the people all feel different. But the book bites off a lot more than it needs to, and what should have been an exciting and thrilling pulp adventure quickly flickers along. Maybe with the main mystery being established by the end of this issue, they'll take more time to develop the story, but for now we're just given a hurried, if nevertheless enticing, introduction..

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Apr 10, 2013

    I found this book" interesting. Its non-linear and sci-fi elements went a bit beyond the pulpy bounds I was expecting. Typically I enjoy sci-fi in any form, but it felt like an unexpected and unwelcome house guest in "Miss Fury" #1. None of this is to say it was necessarily bad""just that it betrayed my expectations and not in a good way. As always I'll be reading the second issue to see if my mind can be changed, but at least the book left me wanting more with its ending. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Apr 3, 2013

    We are off to an interesting start. We get a taste of who Miss Fury is and how she came to be. It's clear she is a very active and capable individual that can more than hold her own against any opposition. We don't get the full story of her origin but enough to keep us invested. The development of the time travel angle adds a different layer to the comic that makes it stand apart from the other 'pulp' revival comics. There were some scenes where the art was catering to those that crave partial nudity and sexual situations. The premise of the book shouldn't have to rely on such ploys and hopefully won't be a factor of future issues. We have a strong and extremely tough female characters involved in a bizarre adventure and I would love to see more. Rob Williams has come up with a great angle on character that will keep you hooked. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Apr 3, 2013

    Artist Jack Herbert manages to walk the tightrope between sexy and vulgar relatively well, even if Marla Drake's cleavage-baring formal wear is more than a little anachronistic. Herbert blends a vintage feel with a modern aesthetic to great effect and the visuals strike the chord missed by Williams' narrative. Hopefully, now that the troublesome origin story has been shoehorned in, Williams and Herbert can operate in harmony in coming issues. The new and temporally displaced Miss Fury has so much potential, it would be a shame to see it squandered. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Apr 4, 2013

    “Miss Fury” # 1 is an impressive first issue with a protagonist that weve all seen before. Yet, an imaginative and original plot and some rather impressive art let this book stand out among the other number ones out there. If the frenzied pace keeps up, and the setup from this issue has proper payoff, were looking at one helluva great new series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Apr 4, 2013

    As a concept, Miss Fury #1 is all kinds of fun. The first female pulp hero transported into the present to fight secret Nazis while combating her own questionable sanity. Nice. Yet there scenes writer Rob Williams chose when detailing Fury's past that make me, as a modern reader, rather uncomfortable. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Apr 4, 2013

    Finally, there's the art of this comic and man, it doesn't really help matters. The coloring is nice and the action scene at the beginning is decent, but that's it. The layouts at times can be boring, and nothing is particularly eye catching. The real stand out feature, however is the facial expressions. The characters are extremely creepy with their emotionless eyes (which are occasionally looking off in different directions) and extremely disturbing smiles. Read Full Review
