Ennis delivers the goods once more here with Fury Max #1. If you were once a fan of Ennis but been turned off by the likes of Crossed, I would say give this one a shot, because if it’s anything like his run on the Punisher, we’ll be in for something special.
The story acts as a direct sequel to Fury: Peacemaker, and continues to tell the early days of Ennis’ version of the character. Here working for the CIA, Fury has been assigned to Vietnam, a decade before the U.S. became officially involved and the country was still under French rule. If you know your CIA history, it’s not hard to see where this series will go, and I’m pretty stoked to see Ennis tackle the subject matter, especially with Nick Fury as our guide. The first issue is mostly set-up, but it looks like it’ll be one hell of a ride when it’s all said and done.
Evan better is the art by Ennis’ former Punisher collaborator Goran Parlov. I felt that the coloring on his Punisher issues always did a disservice to Parlov’s work, but that’s not an issue here. You can almost feel the Hanoi sun on your back thanks to Lee Loughridge’s excellent coloring.
Between this and the Shadow, it’s a good time to be a Garth Ennis fan again.
