ABLAZE Publishing has announced it is collecting the comic strip Friday Foster for the first time.
Created by James D. Lawrence, Jorge Longaron, and Gray Morrow, Friday Foster was the first nationally syndicated comic strip starring an African American Character in the title role. The strip ran from 1970 to 1974, and was the inspiration for the Friday Foster movie starring Pam Grier.
The Friday Foster comic strip is the story of a former nightclub “camera bunny” turned photographer’s assistant turned fashion model. With an innate inclination to help others and a natural beauty that makes her a magnet for men, Friday often finds herself in some very sticky situations and world class adventures.
In addition to including all 214 Friday Foster Sunday comic strips with completely remastered colors and letters, the book will include a significant bonus section including multiple interviews, an expanded sketchbook section, artwork, photos, essays, articles, behind-the-scenes info, and more!
Friday Foster the Sunday Strips arrives on June 24, 2021.
