The story from issues #1-6 of Dynamite Comics' Miss Fury is collected as Miss Fury Volume 1. The basic story is that a woman with extremely large breasts in a skin-tight costume fights time-travelling Nazis. The breasts pose a few problems in the `suspension of disbelief' area, as the artist hasn't grasped the direction that gravity would be pulling them when he owner of said protuberances dives off a building, though I suppose you could claim inertia was still in play; and surely they (the said protuberances) are going to get in the way of the proper positioning of the sniper rifle she uses on occasion? Anyway, those aside, the other problem is the sheer confusion of the story - although the writer has a two-page text introduction to the collection wherein he explains everything in great detail, which allows you to accept the story and follow what is going on. Without that, there might have been a lot of problems following it - or possibly not: if you haven't read the story yet, skip that introduction when you do and see how it feels.

The story itself is actually OK; Miss Fury is a `real' newspaper-strip character from the 1940s, and I have just ordered the two reprint volumes on the strength of reading this (and being a Golden Age comics fan ever since Flash #123). She had an `experience' with the Masai while on safari in Africa, and gained the skin-tight panther costume as a result, though whether any powers came with it, I don't know. She is also a bored, idle lifeless society girl, who gets her kicks from stealing jewels - and you have to see the resemblance to Catwoman here, especially the modern version with the skin-tight costume and large breasts that defy gravity. However, we Golden Age fans will remember that Catwoman actually sported a long dress, slit down the side, until very modern times, so Miss Fury actually has the prior claim to the cat-suit.

The plot involves Nazi scientists who have developed time travel, and are after the same set of diamonds that Miss Fury is (to power the time machine or something), leading to an unfortunate encounter on the roof of a New York museum and an accident with the said time machine, leading to a trip through time to a today, which is infested with Nazi agents, and a future in which Nazis with super-weapons from further into the future invade New York.

It really is a reasonably interesting story, though the breasts are so noticeable that they do get in the way of enjoying it, but I will be looking out for the second volume in my local library.
