Friday Foster was an early 1970s newspaper syndicated comic strip, the first in mainstream newspapers to feature an African American woman character as the star. In 1972 Dell published a one-shot Friday Foster comic book (and of course in 1975 it was turned into a movie starring Pam Grier). Sequential Crush has a deep and extensive look at the one-shot comic, with scans of many of its inside pages.
