FURY: PEACEMAKER #6 (of 6)

Written by GARTH ENNIS

Penciled by DARICK ROBERTSON

The thrilling conclusion! Ever since Nick Fury joined the war, he’s been mired in just as much incompetence, stupidity, and bad luck as actual fighting. Every mission has been an unmitigated disaster and this latest adventure has been no exception-having tracked an assassination target behind enemy lines, Fury and his small crew of soldiers are trapped in a mansion with German officers. Meanwhile, the man they were hoping to assassinate is leading an entire battalion against them! With a battle he hasn’t a prayer of winning, Nick Fury will have to decide whether a fight to the death is all he has left to live for.
