In Review: Fury My War Gone By #8
Superbly written by Garth Ennis and exquisitely penciled by Garon Parlov, My War Gone by #8 continues to tell the tale of Nick Fury’s role in the American Theaters of War since World War II. Interestingly, Garth Ennis tells an intriguing tale which intertwines Marvel’s most famous spy in all of the most important and era shaping events to have rocked the United States in one way or another.
Issue number 8 of the ongoing and mature series sees Nick Fury teamed up with and in command of one of the most dangerous and skilled Marines to have fought in the Vietnam conflict, Frank Castle, aka The Punisher.
Together they are tasked with killing a high ranking North Vietnamese Officer integral in the countries Communist movement, only to be captured and beaten before having their eyes opened to secrets which could turn the CIA upside down as well as expose and compromise of the American War effort.
Once you match this amazing story with the fierce art of Garon Parlov, this book and series really comes alive in such a way as to make a non-super hero book just as good if not better than spandex and super powers. I highly recommend this book as well as the series!
