June Tarpe Mills (1915-1988) had been a fashion model and illustrator and contributed minor strips such asThe Purple Zombie and Daredevil Barry Finn to comic books for two years when the much more successful Miss Fury made its debut in national newspapers in 1941, beating Wonder Womanto the punch by eight months. From the beginning, Mills signed her comics with her sexually ambiguous middle name because, as she said in a newspaper interview, “It would have been a major let-down to the kids if they found out that the author of such virile and awesome characters was a gal.”
- Catfights and crossdressers, mad scientists and Gestapo agents with swastikas branding irons - it's one lurid and exciting adventure after another in this lavish, full-color collection of the first female superhero to be created and drawn by a woman. Miss Fury was a sexy adventurer clad in a skin-tight panther costume. By day, she was socialite Marla Drake. By night... Miss Fury! - In the first half of the 20th century, women cartoonists could be found in America's newspapers, but Tarpe Mills was one of the few who drew adventure comics, and the only one who drew a costumed superheroine. The Miss Fury Sunday newspaper strip ran from 1941 until 1952 and had millions of readers, among them GIs who painted the beautiful action heroine on the nosecones of their bombers. - Eisner- and Harvey-nominated writer and historian Trina Robbins has chosen the best Miss Fury stories for this oversized collection, which also features a biographical essay about Tarpe Mills that places her within the history of women cartoonists, and includes pages from an unpublished and unfinished Miss Fury graphic novel by Mills from 1979.
