    Fury MAX may not be the greatest of Garth Ennis books but it sure is fun to see him play with these characters in new ways. This book has had slow moments but it really hits its stride in this issue. I enjoyed this book tremendously. Read Full Review

    Fury Max #9 is a two-fisted tale of over-the-top macho martial prowess. But it also has something a bit deeper concerning issues of political expediency and pragmatism, with an almost nihilistic ending. It's not a triumphant tale by any measure. Fury's character isn't anything approaching heroic.The titular character is a sort of stock military man that will be familiar to most readers in the military genre "" the grizzled badass who is too tough to die, but doesn't seem to have much reason for living. But characters like these are Ennis's stock and trade "" he has an affection for them that shines through in his writing. And while nothing in this story surprised me, it certainly did entertain me. Fury Max isn't breaking new ground, but it does what it does well. Fury Max #9 earns three and a half out of five stars. Check it out. Read Full Review
