Joe’s Mini-Reviews: Fury MAX: My War Gone By #3

Fury MAX: My War Gone By #3
Writer: Garth Ennis
Artist: Goran Parlov
Colors: Lee Loughridge
Letters: Rob Steen

For those of you not in the know, Fury MAX is shipping bi-weekly and is part of the MAX imprint, meaning it is a strictly adult oriented version of the character. But it’s a version I love. It’s Nick Fury as a battle weary WWII veteran living through a world that is quickly changing from black and white with a few shades of grey into a veritable rainbow of grays without a hint of black or white in sight. It’s a cold, bitter Fury but still one that holds to his principles. And with this issue ends his time in French Indochina circa 1950-something, with a great stinger at the end that brings the three issue arc to a nice neat conclusion. It’s the best Fury book I’ve read in the past year, aside from Secret Warriors and a great title for any over 18 fan of ol’ One Eye.

Rating: 4.4/5
