    Ewings been one of Marvels best architects over the years, working on developing amazing character defining work, diluting them to their essence, and building up what works, while fixing what doesnt. Hes building up from his previous work in minis like Wasp, and bringing it here to cultivate it, and building an arc that can touch all corners of the Marvel universe. While hes not as well known as or lauded as some writers, his quality of work should speak volumes. Read Full Review

    If you like espionage, spy gadgetry, and stories that show the wide breadth of a hero's life, pick up Fury #1. It honors the longstanding hero and sets up new villains and a new direction for young Nick Fury to be further explored. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan May 28, 2023

    ury #1 does an excellent job wrapping up the Man on the Wall's 60 year saga while setting up a bunch of future stories down the line for Nick Fury Jr. We'll see if they stick, and it's delightful to see Al Ewing and this varied team of artists weave together old Marvel lore in such an entertaining package.

    If you're looking for a riveting one-and-done standalone comic book that doesn't require any further reading once you've turned past the final page, Fury #1 isn't a bad place to start. Read Full Review

    If you can comb through the confusing elements and backstories, you'll see some potential involving Fury and the possibilities of some pretty cool espionage narratives on the horizon. However, since I'm solely grading THIS issue, it's extremely hard to overlook the crazy narrative beats, heavy dialogue, and confusing story beats for new fans interested in test-driving this narrative on Nick Fury.

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett May 24, 2023

    Fury #1 utilizes a writer with a deep appreciation for comics and superhero history with a lineup of impressive artists applying their distinctive approaches in appropriate settings; it has all of the pieces necessary to thrill Nick Fury fans. Yet it lacks a story or purpose capable of thrilling, prioritizing style over substance in an issue that few Marvel readers would ever notice they missed. Read Full Review
