    My final verdict is that Female Furies will be nominated for multiple Eisner Awards. You, will want to be the person who read it before that happened. Buy the individual copies. Buy the TPB when it comes out. Support your local shop, but also, support the message of this amazing, ground breaking, and absolute perfect mini-series. Read Full Review

    This miniseries proved to be so much better than I was expecting. So much better than it needed to be. If there were a literary equivalent, I would be giving Castellucci and Melo a standing ovation. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 3, 2019

    Melo was the perfect artist for this book and does a spot on job on this last issue. The pair of creators have taken these background characters and really have given them a new lease on life. I doubt anyone will ever be able to show the characters any other way except like this from now on. That's quite an accomplishment, indeed. Read Full Review

    All in all, this miniseries proves to be a dynamic and much-needed addition to the New Gods canon, crafting a comic that's both timeless and unbelievably modern. Read Full Review

    While not a total wash,Female Furies end the same way it began: rudderless, with a lot to say but lacking the vocabulary with which to say it. Read Full Review

    I've been puzzled since the start by where exactly this bizarre comic falls into DC continuity, and this final issue makes it clear " it doesn't. It's not a lost story of Apokalips that reveals secret truths from the history of one of DC's biggest villains. It's an alternate reality that takes a completely bizarre direction in the final issue that makes it make both more and less sense in context. Read Full Review

    It’s sad I have to give at least one point, since this issue& run deserves none. That’s how bad it is.
    We have a 6 issue mini series with no plot other than that all men are sexist assholes constantly being horny& all females are helpless victims. This idea is forced on the Fourth World characters. The writer showed with this run, that she can’t handle DC characters& that she has never read one single comic with the New Gods.

    I also hate the message here, which is, that women can only be free& happy, if all men are gone. Pretty damn stupid& sexist. This story is one of the most sexist stories I have ever read. I can’t believe DC allowed this. I guess sexism against men is ok these days.

    As for the plot i more

    Hopefully DC have lost a lot of money by publishing this extremist crap.

    Holy shit was this bad. This series had the benefit of the doubt before. That it wasn't saying all men are bad. But nope, apparently it was. Nothing will ever be solved if you divide people by their gender, race, sexuality, etc. That is one of the biggest faults in progressive thinking like this. All this series, and the ideas presented in it, do is alienate the reasonable from the irrational. Both men and women should find this awful, and I'm sure that's true of the majority. What a shame. As I said in earlier reviews, I thought there was a good message in here somewhere and that's why I gave the series a chance to be better. But this issue just shits all over that idea. It really wasn't an example of good ideas that were poorly executed. more

    Yes, it's a feminist manifesto.

    Yes, it's not for me. (Or maybe it is...and if that's the case, she might have tried to tell it a touch less heavy-handed.)

    But - FOR WHAT IT IS - it's a really good story highlighting the challenges that women have in recognizing that they actually have real power if they all row oars in the same direction, that men do a fantastic job dividing and conquering. And the reasonably happy ending makes this fantasy book all the better.

    My real issue is the fact that this miniseries apparently is out of continuity...but they didn't bother to tell us. DC has a burden to explicitly say, "This isn't really happening in our DCU." In fact, the upending of the world of Darkseid in more

    *** Reviews the Entire Series ***

    This is the worst comic book I have ever read. It really takes alot to make me absolutely hate a comic book, but Cecil Castelluci has managed to do that. I give it 2 for the effort and art, but the story, from the direction, to the concepts, to the writing and execution, this has to be the worst book of 2019. Its worst than Bendis Superman for crying out loud. This writer completely craps on the original design of the Fourth World, just to serve this narrative of female oppression from the male genitalia. It completely ignores who the female furies actually are in favor of painting all women as some kind of victim to the patriarchy. Fitting in feminist manifesto in a legendary cosmic world is a r more
