    If you had trepidation about picking up Miss Fury #1 because of past mishandling of her character, fear not. Miss Fury is back and better than ever. Read Full Review

    I suppose there will be comparisons to Peggy Carter; both feature strong women at a time in history when women weren't given their due. As with its other licence properties, Dynamite seems to be trying to strengthen its cadre of female characters. Corinna Bechko and Jonathan Lau have both produced a great issue, whichstarts strong and remains strong throughout. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 6, 2016

    While I've struggled with some of Bechko's works before it feels like she's firing on all cylinders here and completely gets Marla and Miss Fury. The story is straightforward as a mystery that ties to the time well but has enough of an international flair to carry it larger. We don't dig deep into her character but what we get is certainly tantalizing enough to leave me wanting a whole lot more as I think they'll deliver. What takes everything up several notches is Jonathan Lau's artwork and some striking color work from Vinicius Andrade that really enhances everything. Lau's got a great sense of layouts and dynamic action in these early pages with the white backgrounds to give it all more impact and I really dig his presentation of Marla in both her normal and Miss Fury form. I've enjoyed his work before from Dynamite but this looks like he's stepped up his game even more with what's here. Very exciting stuff! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 6, 2016

    Miss Fury Volume 2 #1 was a solid start to this new story and direction for Marla Drake. Still badass, cunning, and ready to jump into action at any given moment. She may be one of few Golden Age heroines Dynamite really puts in the spotlight, though when that spotlight is on her she demands attention. Read Full Review

    Miss Fury isn't the comic of the century, but it is a competent work and worth consideration for readers who are looking for a pulpy Golden Age throwback story. Read Full Review

    Appropriate aesthetic, though the breakneck pace doesn't feel as grounded. Read Full Review

    There's nothing much going on here. And I doubt future issues will be made less coherent if you skip this one. Better luck next time, Miss Fury. Read Full Review

    A relatively simple story of mystery and intrigue that I'm liking so far. Volume 1 got lost in way too much time travel nonsense, it became incoherent, but this volume doesn't look like it will have that problem. This volume also has my boy Jonathan Lau on the art, I still can't believe Marvel or DC haven't stolen him, he's Dynamite's best kept secret.
