I'm still following this excellent series.

For those familiar with this book: it's a 13 issue series. There two issues left and the first trade has been released.

Fury is an hotel room. He's recording the high and low moments of his career which started in WW2 and is continuing through the Cold War. Indochina, Vietnam (where he meets a young sniper called Frank Castle), Nicaragua (where Fury meets Barracuda).

The series also deals with politics and corruption.

It's a great book, like Ennis' greatest hits in Marvel Max. It's very different from the previous Fury Max series. It's much more serious and grounded. But Fury Max is still the same: short tempered and cynical. And skilled.

I recommend it if you haven't picked it up yet.

Ive always been a great admirer of the depth of Ennis historical knowledge. Ive read his 'war Stories' and 'Battlefields' series for years. All he's done here is introduce the drama of characters like Fury, Castle and Barracuda into the context of real-world events, and he's done a great job with it too. Goran Parlovs art as usual is excellent.

I have a sad feeling though that this series is going to conclude with Fury putting a gun in his mouth. Certainly it seems to be about him explaining his legacy and his actions over the decades, and Fury appears to be a bit of a broken man. I suppose it would suitably book-end the Punisher MAX series to tie up Furys story too.
