The Female Furies have a terrible secret that could get them all banished to the deepest pit of Apokolips. They thought they got away with killing Steppenwolf's nephew, but now that he's been reported missing, the Protectors are sticking their noses into everyone's business in hopes of finding their lost comrade. Meanwhile, Aurelie's tormentor, Protector Wiliks, applies more pressure on her. Does he know more than he lets on? Regardless, it's affecting Aurelie's ability to lead the Furies, causing friction between her and Big Barda and forcing Granny Goodness to take drastic action.

    This is the right book for the right time. You may be uncomfortable reading it, I know I was, but you need to read it. You need to hand it to your teenage daughters and your teenage sons and then you need to talk about it. Seriously, it is that important. Read Full Review

    Although of course it would help to have a familiarity with the Fourth World stories to fully appreciate this miniseries, I believe the strength of the characterization, and the enjoyable execution of the art and story, would make this an entertaining book for those who had never experienced the Female Furies before.

    Aurelie does confront her attacker and it's a breathtaking scene. I commend the creative team for handling the sensitive subject matter with respect. They do a fine job and make this book more than just a standard spin-off book. They turn it into something unique. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 6, 2019

    Female Furies #2 adds to Castellucci's abuse narrative while also adding new wrinkles to the story. Adriana Melo's art continues to impress, bringing a level of emotion the story needs. The only problem this book has is that many readers aren't ready for the very frank discussion of misogyny and sexual abuse this comic puts forth and especially don't want to see it in the Fourth World. However, the art and writing are top notch, and that's all that matters. Read Full Review

    With well-done art and an interesting cliffhanger, it's definitely still worth keeping an eye on Female Furies. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Mar 6, 2019

    Female Furies #2 is an ordeal by fire, a broadside against how men treat women, cast against the pulpy Technicolor of a modern superhero comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 15, 2019

    After a first issue with questionable (at best) execution,Female Furies gains its footing and begins to move in the right direction. Though not a comic for everybody, writer Cecil Castellucci is telling a story that is beginning to show signs of immediacy and a righteous anger that cannot be denied. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 6, 2019

    Turns out it's not just the creepy men that subject the Female Furies to rigorous, unspoken expectations—other women do it, too! If you can accept that these characters resemble the originals in an only visual manner, then you're still left with a pretty dull story. Of course, the whole miniseries should conclude before we truly evaluate it. Read Full Review

    Jack Kirby's Fourth World doesn't deserve this sort of treatment but the art at least quite good. 2 out of 5! Read Full Review

    "Female Furies" #2 completely misses the mark with deadly serious storytelling in a fantastical milieu, and lacks the craft to back up its conceit. Read Full Review

    The second issue of Female Furies takes all the problems of the first issue and doubles down on them, removing the few elements of hope that made me think the series could improve. Read Full Review

    Better than the first issue if you ignore who the characters are supposed to be. I don't think this series is reducing all men to rapists, as others have said. It's clear what the message is and it's not a bad message, honestly. Some abuse their power and authority over others in horrendous ways and those victims can face backlash and worse for saying anything. It's the execution of that message that hurts this series. The setting and characters just don't fit. What made this issue better was that there was no ridiculous bake contest or any other tonal flubs, it was consistent in how shitty the entire situation is. I have no clue where this series is heading, but I'm kinda interested?

    Once again I feel like the writing is letting its very important topic down a bit, I want so badly for this to be the perfect comic! This issue was definitely better because it was a bit less flip and didn’t use so much caricature.

    I have a strange feeling that this book is trying to say something, but god damn they'ree speaking in a dead language.

    This issue is better than the last one, because not solely men are reduced to being sexists in this issue. We find out, that also women have a bad character. However it still feels like a MeToo agenda was forced on the Fourth World characters. It feels more than wrong, that a person there would ever complain about being mistreated on Apokolips, because everyone just serves one purpose& that’s to serve Darkseid. All this bitching about being respected feels wrong for Apokolips. And even when Barda was on Apokolips it feels wrong for her character to show no compassion at all to a friend. That’s why she fleed from there after all. There were parts, that felt right like aborting& using the child of Aurelie as a monster, but it was still more

    There was just a small hope that the first issue was a joke. Bu no. This is extreme left wing feminist propaganda, designed to divide people by gender. It really is quite shocking that it is being published.
