High in the Citadel there exists a bio-dome of clean air and pure water, protected from the toxicity and anarchy of the Wasteland. Here the warlord Immortan Joe keeps his most prized possessions - his wives - imprisoned for his pleasure and his insistence that they bear him healthy male heirs. Then, amid this cruel depravity, an unlikely rescuer emerges...the Immortan's most lethal warrior: the Imperator Furiosa.

From the mind of George Miller, the creator of the Mad Max trilogy, the prelude miniseries to the upcoming film Mad Max: Fury Road continues!

    All in all, it's a must by for anyone that enjoyed the film and wants another slice of the action. for those of you that didn't enjoy the film, maybe this will help give you more insight as to why the rest of us liked it and you're wrong? Also anyone that watched the film and thought Immortan Joe was right, because they were his wives, maybe this will show you just how wrong you truly are. Read Full Review

    It is a nice prologue for the film, as it gives us the set up for how Furiosa came to rescue Joe's wives, from his vile hands. Unfortunately, it gives us very little about Furiosa and her past before that. I think this is a missed opportunity, as she is a very interesting character. I would have loved to learn more about her youth, in the "green place" and how she came to lose her arm, but sadly we get none of that. Read Full Review

    Visually, the comic has little in common with the film either. There's no carefully choreographed action to be had here, just talking heads and partially obscured sexual violence. Artists Tristan Jones and Szymon Kudranski aren't given much to do in this issue besides recreate the memorable character designs and locations from the film (which admittedly has some appeal. Mark Tristan's framing sequence pages offer a stronger sense of style, but they only count for two of the book's 40 pages. Read Full Review

    This book is like watching a deleted scene on a DVD. Although it has some moments that help contribute to the larger understanding of the story, it's ultimately unnecessary and awkward. Read Full Review

    Overall, I felt like I learned nothing new about the character. WhileMad Max: Fury Road " Furiosa had the great idea of using different artists for gorgeous artwork, the story didn't do it justice. Read Full Review

    Furiosa is in the title, so if you're looking for enlightenment about how she lost her arm, why she is considered Immortan Joe's fiercest warrior, or see her in butt-kicking action... you'll need to look elsewhere, because she serves this prequel issue as little more than ornamentation in the shadows.

    All in all, despite some impressive artwork, Mad Max: Furiosa #1 is one of those books that leaves you with more questions than it does answers. Hopefully the upcoming sequels will again provide us with the Furiosa we know. Read Full Review
