We at borg.com could not have been more disappointed when the World War II/superheroine/time travel series Miss Fury was cancelled back in 2014.  We named Miss Fury the Best Comic Book Series of 2013 and our comments were even published in back-page advertising in every Dynamite Comics issue for months.  So we couldn’t be happier when we heard Miss Fury is returning in a new monthly series.  We previewed Issue #1 of Volume 2, arriving at comic book stores everywhere today, and love the intrigue in this latest chapter.  This incarnation of Miss Fury may remind modern audiences of Marvel’s Agent Carter.  By day she is smart and does her job.  By night she wears a dark supersuit and sleuths out secrets, beats the feathers out of anyone who gets in her way, and looks after her country’s interests while all the good men have gone away to fight a war.  With Miss Fury, think Agent Carter, but maybe an Agent Carter in a supersuit who is not above some bloody hand-to-hand combat.

Miss Fury has been around much longer than Agent Carter.  In fact she is probably the first superheroine in comics.  We discussed her previously at borg.com here and here.

Corinna Bechko serves as writer on the new series with artwork by Jonathan Lau and colors by Vinicius Andrade.  Someone has broken into Marla Drake’s offices in New York City.  Unfortunately for the thieves, Miss Drake aka Miss Fury is at those offices during the break-in.  What secrets did they get away with?  How will it affect her firm’s deal with the Brazilians, and how will it all tie back to the war effort?  Look for action, action, and more action in this new series.

As an added bonus for those who missed Dynamite Comics’s earlier reboot, a new second compilation trade paperback of Miss Fury, Volume 1 is hitting the stands:

Station to Station cover

Readers of the anthology series Dark Horse Presents will have already read it in serial form, but those who haven’t will be in for a sci-fi TV inspired treat with this week’s release of the one-shot Station to Station.  Co-written by Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Sara Bechko with art by Hardman, this Outer Limits-inspired tale chronicles the aftermath of a laboratory experiment into parallel universes when the experiment goes incredibly wrong.  Set in San Francisco Bay’s Treasure Island, Station to Station reads like a short story from a sci-fi compilation like Philip K. Dick’s Short Stories or Ray Bradbury’s Short Stories, only in graphic novel form.  It begs the question:  Why not take a bunch of sci-fi stories like these and make an ongoing monthly comic book series out of them?

As to genre, Station to Station fits in the mix of sci-fi that crosses over into horror, like many of the best tales from The Twilight Zone–the cool thrilling and chilling kind of horror as opposed to the goopy gory kind.  Unlike a lot that comes out of Dark Horse Presents that have grown into ongoing series, Station to Station doesn’t need a series because it does what it needs in a single issue.
