(June) Tarpé Mills (1915-1988) was one of the first female comics artists. She is best known for her Miss Fury action heroine (who predated Wonder Woman by 6 months). She wrote under her middle name to disguise her gender, but it eventually became known Tarpé was a woman. Trina Robbins edited a collection of her comics in two volumes, published by IDW.
