Miss Fury and Catwoman... Collected

I wish there were more collections of Catwoman stores, but lets be thankful for what we have. This storyby Suzette Chan at Sequential Tart, published during Catwoman The Movie, highlights Catwoman's evolution from one note to full character.

I am glad she touched on Miss Fury, the Marvel comics Golden Age 'prototype' for Miller/Jim Balent's look for Selina. I am surprised more is not made of her slinky/cat burglar look, that is closer to the Catwoman we know today - than her 1940's counterpart. And to boot Miss Fury was created, written and illustrated by Tarpe (June) Mills, who reportedly resembled her creation. Amazing.
