As part of its San Diego Comic-Con announcements, Dynamite Entertainment released the cover art accompanying the return of the original superheroine in her next series coming this Fall. Dynamite is publishing its third solo Miss Fury series. Billy Tucci will be writing the story with artwork by Emma Kubert.
True to June Tarpe Mills’ original newspaper strip, the series is set during World War II, where Marla Drake aka Miss Fury takes on the Nazis. You don’t know Miss Fury? Check out this great anthology series we reviewed previously here at borg.com. Dynamite gave us our pick for best comic book series of 2013 with its first Miss Fury series, and she returned in another solo title, and again as part of the team-up in Masks 2.
Tucci confirmed that Mills’ original cast of characters will return. Taking readers “from the warring skies above New York City and into the heart of Hitler’s Third Reich,” the series will be delivered “in the spirit of an all-female Inglourious Basterds.
Tucci is scheduled to appear at San Diego Comic-Con this week as part of the Dynamite Entertainment “Diamond Previews Premiere Publisher Panel,” from 1:00 -2 p.m. on Friday, July 20, in Room 4 at the San Diego Convention Center.
The debut issue of Miss Fury: Joy Division, Issue #1, will be released with several cover variants, featuring Tucci, Kubert, Ken Lashley, Mike McKone, and Jan Duursema, along with a blank sketch cover.
