…Because I hold in my hand an advance copy of my book, Tarpe Mills and MISS FURY, edited and with an introduction by me. Miss Fury, by June Tarpe Mills, ran in America’s newspapers from 1941 until 1952, and was the first major female superhero created and drawn by a woman. Yes, she beat Wonder Woman to the punch by half a year! This 229 page book (it weighs a ton!) collects the complete Miss Fury Sunday pages from 1944 to 1949 (to my mind, Mills at her best). These pages have never before been reprinted, so now’s your chance to discover for the first time the stylish, lurid, risque, film noir-esque story of Miss Fury — it’s a page-turner! When I took the book out of its packaging, I sat right down with it and reread it from cover to cover.
Here’s some of what it says on the back cover:
Catfights and crossdressers, mad scientists and spike-heeled dopplegangers, 200-year-old men who look 20, and a one-armed Nazi who can’t be stopped!
Oh, and did I mention that the book includes 13 pages of Tarpe Mills’ hitherto unpublished graphic novel, NEVER before seen?!
