What will we learn about the Female Furies that we haven’t learned before? We’re about to find out in DC Comics’ newest series Female Furies #1 by Cicil Castellucci and Adriana Melo.

Writer: Cicil Castellucci
Artist: Adriana Melo
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: February 6, 2019
All their lives the Female Furies have been raised to be the meanest, most cunning and most ruthless fighting force on all of Apokolips. So why are Granny Goodness’ girls left behind every time the men go to war? With the might of New Genesis hanging over the planet, and the Forever People making mincemeat out of Darkseid’s army, Granny thinks it’s about time that changed.

And so, Big Barda, Aurelie, Mad Harriet, Lashina, Bernadeth and Stompa set out to beat the boys at their own game. Little do they know the game is rigged and one accidental murder could spell disaster for them all!

FEMALE FURIES is an exciting new miniseries starring some of Jack Kirby’s coolest Fourth World characters by the writer of SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL and the artist of PLASTIC MAN!

This is a hard book to read, but one that could be going somewhere interesting. I have to admit, I like it more having established that Cecil Castellucci is a woman.Matthew's Thoughts
While the issue is full of bashing and smashing, the tale of Granny Goodness and her team of Female Furies being forced to do things they don’t want to is more relevant today than ever before. If you are someone who was upset by the #metoo movement, you’ll probably want to pass on this issue. For the rest of us, this is just another example of comics reflecting the issues of the day.Stephen's Thoughts
