Attention, Fans of (Miss) Fury!
The Comics Journal #288 includes 30+ color pages by Tarpé Mills, presented by Trina Robbins. The overwhelming majority of the comics reprinted are wonderful Miss Fury strips.
The color pages are a revelation, adding depth to Mills' characterizations. I was rationing my reading of the George Herriman cartoons reprinted in the previous issue of the Journal, and plan to do the same with these.
My fervent hope is that Trina Robbins is working on a complete reprint of Miss Fury (+ color), or, better yet, a biography of Tarpe Mills.
I would stand in line during a 12-hour thunder storm to buy either of those items.
