From the dust jacket-
"The First Female Superhero Created and Drawn by a Woman Cartoonist."
"In the first half of the 20th century, women cartoonists could be found in America's newspapers, but Tarpé 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."
