The Butterfly was the first Black Female Super Heroine to be featured in a comic book.
The Butterfly appeared in two comics in 1971 - Hell-Rider #1 and #2.
Hell Rider was a black and white magazine published by Skywald (Sol Brodsky and Herschel Waldman) which ran for just two issues. There are two features in the comic book - The Butterfly, and The Wild Bunch - but instead of making them separate entities, both stories are a part of the bigger Hell-Rider story.
The Butterfly Story:
The Butterfly was written by Gary Freidrich, illustrated by Rich Buckler.
The Museum Of UnCut Funk has created a line of merchandise featuring The Burrterfly, which can be found in our Museum Of UnCut Funk Store. Own a piece of Vintage Black Comic History!!!
