Marvel Comics’ Black Panther character is the first black superhero to appear in American comic books, debuting in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966). While the Black Panther’s published adventures are plentiful and continue today, the adventures of America’s first black superheroine, The Butterfly, are few; she had two appearances in a short-lived comics magazine generated by a now-defunct comics publisher, and the character is not well-known to modern comics readers.
“I picked up the first issue due to all the positive buzz and my love of crime comics. I’m recommending the second, because the buzz was well deserved, and I’m very excited for what Ed Brisson and Adam Gorham are doing. For fans of Criminal and Stray Bullets, this is a no-brainer.”
