    For those concerned over the end of PUNISHER MAX, we now have another MAX title on the store shelves. Garth Ennis and Goran Parlov join forces again to bring us a harder look at Nick Fury's past. This issue does go along with the atmosphere of what we would expect but it felt as if the crazy Nick Fury action we might've hoped for has been held back a little. The stage has been set. Nick may have spent some time brooding a little here but from the end, it looks like the action will definitely pick up next issue. If you need something a little edgier in the Marvel Universe, this is the book you'll want to check out. Read Full Review

    The artwork by Goran Parlov, teaming him up again with Ennis, is well done. It does not attempt to stretch outside of what is usually expected from a Marvel book while at the same time doing it with panache. I think if Parlov attempted anything else the book would not succeed, even with Ennis writing it. It is uncertain whether this series is continuous or only a limited title but I hope it stays around for a few issues. Read Full Review
