Let's get this said right off the bat: When I finished the first chapter of Fury, I was ready to throw the book down in disgust. I was not impressed with Garth Ennis' foul-mouthed, whoring interpretation of Marvel icon Nick Fury. I kept going, though, and I'm glad I did.
Nick Fury is a man left behind by the agency, S.H.I.E.L.D., that he helped build. He's a cold-war dinosaur who is finding that, without a war to fight, his life just isn't worth living. He's reduced to a drinking, whoring old crank....until a chance encounter with an old enemy changes everything. While rembering old times over a drink, Yuri Gagarin waxes poetic about how he and Nick could go somewhere and start their own war, and bring the glory days back. Fury laughs it off, but soon enough, Gagarin has started a coup on a small but strategically placed island near Hawaii, and is about to trigger World War III. Suddenly Fury is important again...

After the first chapter, and the pointless focus given to Fury's nephew Wendell, the book takes off. Artists Darick Robertson & Jimmy Palmiotti have clearly based their Fury on Clint Eastwood, and I could easily imagine Clint playing out this story on the big-screen. The final chapters play out like the best summer action movie you've never seen, and Ennis' pacing is flawless. Be warned, though- This is a "Max" book, Marvel's "Mature Readers" imprint, and BOY, does it earn that title: Death, destruction, dismemberment, used condoms, disfigured soldiers with obscene names, a man being strangled with his own Intestines....The list goes on and on. The action finale is mind-boggling, and the final sequence is staggeringly memorable. I'd love to see Ennis, Robertson, and Palmiotti do a return engagement with Nick Fury.

Format: Paperback
After his long run on the classic and critically acclaimed Preacher series and his re-invention of The Punisher, Garth Ennis was given the task of giving the same treatment to Nick Fury. And what a job he did. Collecting the six issue mini-series; Fury tells the story of a modern day Nick Fury: a profanity laden, whorring, cold war dinosaur who longs for the days when he could shoot first and ask questions later. Tired of his day in, day out life, his hopeless and annoying "nephew" Wendel, and disgusted by what S.H.I.E.L.D. (the organization he used to run) has become; he is soon made an offer by an old enemy to go off to some little third world country and start a war of their own to re-live their glory days. Nick doesn't take him seriously, but soon enough he learns it was no joke, and once again Nick Fury is being counted upon. Ennis has really gone all out here: full of his penchant ultra graphic violence, a severe lack of being politically correct, and being insanely darkly humerous; Fury is one of the best pieces of comic art to come out of Marvel in quite some time. The art by Darick Robertson and Jimmy Palmiotti is as equally fantastic and shows all the graphic, gritty detail. Also, look for various in-jokes and references to Ennis' Preacher saga; including a man whose disfigured face is a clear homage/re-interpretation of Arseface from the Preacher comics. All in all, if you like comics in the least bit and can handle everything contained in these pages (it well deserves it's Parental Advisory label) then you will definitely love Fury. Also highly recommended is any of Ennis' work on The Punisher.

Ok first of all I have to admit to being very biased, I love ennis's work, I would probably read his grocery list if I got the chance.

That out of the way, this is another short by ennis collecting the 6 issue miniseries.

Its got everything youd come to expect from an ennis book, dark humor, gore, cussin a plenty and of course a killer story.

Ennis's take on Fury is perfect, an old, pissed off dude whose disenfranchised with s.h.i.e.l.d. and dealing with a funny little guy named wendel. The dynamic between those two is sooo funny, and worth a read in itself.

I dont wanna give anything away about the story so i'll just leave it at this, if you like ennis at all buy this, if you've never heard of him, buy it.

Ever since he blew us all away with his ground breaking work on Preacher, Garth Ennis has taken to the words British humor to an all new level. His wor on the Punisher comes to no difference, though you could feel that he was not letting loose, his great imagination constrained. Along comes FURY and things just go over the top.
Ennis has long been associated with his partner in crime Steve Dilon. The two take dark humor to different levels. Without his partner on this book, Ennis tries his best to tone the gruesomeness so that Darrick Robertson can catch up. And he does so fabulously. The story is simple. The world has changed and everything has become more beaurocratic and down-toned. Unlinke the old days where everything just went bump in the night and the shadows were alive with Commies out hunting for blood. Fury is the hero of yesteryear which time has finally caught up with. He inadvertently creates a war in a small island country that soon takes him into the middle of the action, just where he likes it. The ending, however is not something he was expecting for.
Ennis manages to create and eclectic supporting cast. From the madly distorted F#$k Face to a bickering crazy nephew of Fury's that no other author has brought notice to. The story is a wild fire and moves like one. Robertson answers Ennis's calling and brings out an amazing different visage to the world of Gart Ennis. These two can work togetherwithout any problems, though you do miss Dillon at times.
Ennis is gearing to write a MAX Punisher title now and you know how that's going to work. Robertson is off doing Wolverine. Fury brings those two powerhorse creative together for a wonderful read all the way.
