Friday Foster was an African-American comic strip heroine created by Jim Lawrence. Lawrence was inspired to create the character after seeing images of Warhol factory regular (and the first black model to appear on British Vogue!) Donyale Luna.
Friday worked a photo assistant at a fashion magazine who moonlighted as a detective. Friday Foster comics ran in newspapers from 1970 to 1974. In October of 1972, Dell Comics ran a single issue of Friday Foster. Friday Foster was adapted into a blaxploitation film starring Pam Grier as Friday Foster, in 1975.

Thanks for this treasure trove of Friday Foster info! I’m embarrassed by how excited I was to discover it. 🙂
