    Miss Fury Volume 2 #5 shows why this is a must read for pulp fiction fans alike. This was the start of a new adventure for Marla as Miss Fury and she started with a big bang. If these are the kind of threats she will face along the way? That is more than welcomed when there is more to learn about what makes her just as dangerous as what bumps in the night.

    Coming into this series after the Swords of Sorrow event, which gave me a good taste of this character, Miss Fury simply clicked. It was a slow start that I expected as you had to connect with the period and get to know the characters, but Corinna Bechko and Jonathan Lau really made this a fantastic book. While individual installments may not have been A-grade issues each time, the series as a whole is one that really flows beautifully and has a lot to offer. The ending act hits the expected notes while teasing some possibilities for it and I truly hope that this team gets to work together again on another miniseries for the character, or at least a special, or just anything. The pairing from this point of view worked really well and the end results has me far more interested in this character than I was a year ago when it barely registered at all. Very fun stuff that's worth digging into and exploring as part of this era of comics storytelling. Read Full Review

    Still, societal concerns aside, this final issue brings to close a somewhat entertaining first arc. Read Full Review

    This issue wasn't enough to make me give up on Miss Fury and her adventures but, it was enough to have me already giving the side eye to the next issue because I'm not sure it's going to be able to bounce back and bring our hero with it. Read Full Review

    I'm going to miss this comic. Lau went all out on the art for this, what a ride. Bechko shows off her writing chops, allowing inner conflict to be showcased on the page and giving a thoughtful way to resolve the conflict. Dynamite doesn't have anything else at this level and I hope that Bechko and Lau will do a third volume because I'd love to read more Miss Fury from this team.
