Good idea for a story, but the execution is sloppy, the pace is much too fast and it doesn't fit with the established continuity of the series. Basically, everyone turns against Fury much too quickly, on very flimsy evidence that could only be used once he had behaved in an out-of-character manner. 3/10

  Man, imagine if it was that easy to frame the head of the most powerful secret government organization on Earth. We'd all be screwed!

  I really found this whole story line kinda confused and all over the place. Also not a big fan on how the art came out.

  Barry Smith seems to be trying to emulate Steranko. Smith is a fine artist in his own right and should be applying his own style.

  Just because your story is confusing does not make it deep.

  I really enjoyed this story. Yeah, it might be hard to infiltrate a secret organization these days, but imagine how easy it was back then with no internet or the technology we use.

  I liked this issue. It really should've been two issues, though...

  Not bad. Pretty standard for a Fury story.

  Oh goodness gracious! No wonder these are not on MDCU. The art here is laughably bad. There has been some attempt to create some Steranko-like layouts, it doesn't really work. Sounds like the story well is rather empty too. Script is trying to be cool, it just comes over as juvenile. (1)

  Nice early draft of the oft-repeated Fury VS SHIELD story, though it was a shame it was carried out by such a low class Hydra goon.

  Just 2 stars for Hell hath no Fury, like a Fanboy scorned!!!

Twist - Isn't odd, that SHIELD's recovery agents uniforms match Hydra uniforms...

Patent Pending - Interesting that Stark gave SHIELD his repulsor tech!

Chin Up - Man, there are some mighty big chins in this issue!!!

Discus - Fury must have super strength because a manhole cover weighs up to a couple hundred pounds!!!

No Prize - Fury is sending his thoughts to the General...(p20,p2)

'Nuff Said - "A groping hand appears...seeking a grip on the edge of the manhole..."-Naughty Narrator

  Locust's 'Nuff Saids are always entertaining!

  Hey, this issue actually wasn't bad! Did I accidentally read the wrong thing?

  Wow, they better avoid driving those aero cars near any gravel roads if breaking the windshield causes them to lose control and explode like that.

  So what's the big deal? Fury converses with enemy agents on a frequent basis....as he's bashing their heads in! I think the good guys were a little too accepting of Rickard's story and proof, regardless of what the photos seemed to show. Of course, if THAT happened, we'd have no story, right?

3 stars. This is at least intriguing enough for me that I'm curious to see what comes next. But this title is really suffering overall since Steranko's departure.

  The art didn't do much for me. Thus far in the Fury comics, the art has been the biggest draw. The stories are pretty flat and standard.

Fury is arrested for being a traitor. While this story will become cliched in later years, it is interesting to see Fury reacting to his own agents.

However, this issue just doesn't stick in my mind.

  This was one confusing story.

Letter from Don McGregor in letters column lamenting the departure of Steranko.
