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:

Review by C.J. Bunce

If you spent any part of the 72 hours this week getting caught up on the best of The Twilight Zone, courtesy of the Syfy Channel’s annual marathon pilgrimage to the land of Rod Serling, you may find that returning to the real world takes a bit of an effort.  A new comic book series by the critically acclaimed J. Michael Straczynski may help you in your transition.  Dynamite Comics’ Issue #1 of The Twilight Zone is in comic book stores this week, and you’re likely to find it in stock because of low turnouts in stores due to the mid-week holiday.

What does it take to make for a classic tale from The Twilight Zone?  Straczynski’s first issue has the story off to the right start.  He includes a well-concocted Serling-esque introduction.  It’s hard to imagine some of the subjects from the original series being current since they are so far removed from today, but in their initial run each episode dealt with some current political, social, or scientific question.  Issue #1 has the required currency–although anti-Wall Street stories are abundant these days, it’s still a worthy subject and the additional twists make for an intriguing set-up.  Trevor Richmond has taken his company and increased profits well above expectations.  So much so that the feds are sniffing around and Richmond’s methods are soon to be uncovered.
