If that doesn't sound enticing enough, here is the description of IDW's 1944-1949 book from 2011: "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essay about Tarpe Mills that places her within the history of women cartoonists, and includes pages from an unpublished and unfinished Miss Fury graphic novel by Mills from 1979."
Dynamite Comics has cornered the market with new pulp comic books. The company has brought back many classic characters -including The Black Bat, Doc Savage, Flash Gordon, The Shadow, and The Spider- with exciting scripts and beautiful artwork. Dynamite Miss Fury page here.
