Synopsis 

“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.” – DC Comics

Story

I have a feeling that many people are not going to like this issue of  Female Furies. At first, I was thinking why would Cecil Castellucci do a story like this? Why have the men of Apokalips objectify the women of Apokalips this does include Darkseid. I thought about it for a little while and I grew to respect Cecil Castellucci decision. Some men are corrupted and think they are higher than women on earth, so it is fitting that on Apokalips all men on Apokalips are corrupt.

My main issue isn’t specifically for this issue alone. I hope that in the next issue we will see more development because as of right now; I do not think this will go well with men. There was a panel at the end of the comic that was very satisfying because of the build-up at the start.

I feel like there will be a lot of controversy for this comic and if that was what Cecil Castellucci was going for then bravo!

Art

The art for Female Furies #1 is really beautiful from the colors to the attention to detail, I also love the old style feel. It gives the comic some nostalgia factor for the old comic book fans but it still feels fresh for younger audiences to enjoy. I have heard people saying that this has that Kirby feel to it and I actually have to agree, which is a good thing.

Overall Thoughts 

After a while, I got used to the story and enjoyed it. I also loved the art thanks to Adriana Melo, Hi-Fi, Mitch Gerads, and Francesco Mattina. But, I will say that this might not go over well with other comic book fans.

I would recommend to pick this up once it is on the bargain rack.
