Allen, Edgar Jr.

June Tarpé Mills was one of the very first women artists working in the American comics industry. Perhaps most associated with the character Miss Fury, she had been working in the industry for several years prior to the first appearance of her most popular character in 1941.

Mills chose to be credited by her middle name in order to obscure her gender. However, by the middle of the 1940s it became fairly common knowledge that Miss Fury's creator and principal artist was female.

Her comics career effectively ended upon the publication of the final Miss Fury issue she helped create in 1952. Nevertheless, Marvel was able to coax her briefly out of retirement in the 1970s.

Like her famous creation, she retained her maiden name, being referred to as "Miss Mills" until her death.

Date of Birth: 1915

If her comic credits in this database look scant, it's important to remember that Mills was mostly a newspaper comic strip artist, as opposed to a comic book artist. Miss Fury (1942) reprinted only a fraction of the newspaper work that had made both her and her creation household names during World War II.
