Originally credited to Barbara Hall based on Trina Robbins' interview with Hall as given on the Comixscholars-L listserve on 30 April 2014. But on 21 July 2015, in an interview with CBR.com, Robbins stated: "I have to tell you that she [Hall] had told me that she drew the first "Black Cat," which it turns out she did not draw. Al Gabrielle drew it. So neither her daughter nor I know if she ever did draw "Black Cat." She was getting on when I interviewed her. She had always told her daughter that had drawn "Black Cat," but at this point, it remains a mystery."
