A Comic Is Worth A Thousand Words

Women have long been profoundly influential while not receiving recognition and pay commensurate with their work.  June Tarpe Mills had to hide her sex to gain traction in the comic industry.  Only after notable success was it publicly acknowledged that the artist was a woman. Miss Fury, in fact, was the first female action hero in comics created by a woman.

This site is dedicated to the work and memory of one of America's greatest comic artists - June Tarpe Mills. Please help us enrich the site, and Tarpe Mills' memory, by sharing your thoughts, stories and images!
