In glorious full color at last, here are the first four years of this wildly original series of Sunday comics pages – that were also collected in comic book form by Timely (Marvel, back when) Comics. These are the strips that inspired us to write the following upon the occasion of their reprinting in black and white a few years back under Greg Theakston's Pure Imagination imprint: "You want a gorgeously drawn, action packed, golden age super hero comic book, that centers on the adventures of an occasionally costume-clad heroine that's written and drawn by a woman and that, while it doesn't shy away from presenting its readers with a gaggle of curvaceous gals, is clearly the product of feminist thinking? What's that? You thought no such thing exists? Well, that's where you'd be wrong, as Miss Fury by Tarpe Mills fits the bill in spades. As these comics were created during WWII, Miss Fury is not only compelled to deal with thugs, burglars and blackmailers -- as well as a femme fatale, a petulant boyfriend and an amoral seductress bent on getting him -- but also Nazi spys and soldiers: the major villian is a Nazi general, who, while clearly evil, is nevertheless surprisingly presented as courageous and heroic -- a far cry from the typical comic book caricatures of vicious bunglers, and a highly unusual example of ambivalence in the face of the enemy. Perhaps most fascinating is that during the Nazi invasion of Brazil (we told you this story was action packed) a fiery Latina forges an alliance with rugged gauchos and rainforest indians to repel the Nazi attack (assisted by Miss Fury, naturally) -- shades of today's leftist alliances to save the rainforest from rapacious multinational conglomerates. This book is a revelation!" This new, full color, oversize hardcover edition is beautifully printed. It is edited by Trina Robbins, who has assiduously included plenty of bonus features, including rare earlier work by Ms. Mills. Check it out!
