The first female superhero created and drawn by a woman cartoonist.

Reprinting every Miss Fury Sunday page from the beginning in April 1941 through April 1944 (where IDW's companion volume picks up), we learn the origins of Miss Fury and her skin-tight panther costume — complete with its sharp claws on her hands and her feet!

These early exploits introduce all of the memorable characters who remained in the strip for the rest of the decade: the one-armed General Bruno, the Baroness Erica Von Kampf (with a swastika branded on her forehead), Albino Jo, and the all-American Gary Hale and Detective Carey, who each vies for Marla's affections. The stories range from downright kinky to all-out action against Nazis, spies, cuthroats, and thieves. Edited by Trina Robbins and designed by Lorraine Turner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow..... I'm so very happy IDW decided to publish this companion volume to the first published a few years ago; this completes the run of Miss Fury Sunday strips, the earlier being a collection of the later strips (1945-49).
