Number 640

Camilla is a thrilla

This is day three of Pappy's Jungle Girl week. Are these chicks swingers, or what?

Camilla is from Fiction House's Jungle Comics, one of the secondary characters to Ka'a'nga, a Tarzan-type, who was the book's star. She actually had an intriguing start, based on H. Rider Haggard's Ayesha (She), but eventually Camilla settled in to being yet another jungle queen. Camilla had several artists, but I've chosen a story by Fran Hopper, one of the fantastic female cartoonists of the 1940s.

Chuck Wells is also showing jungle girls this week at his Comic Book Catacombs blog.

This story is from Jungle Comics #70, 1945.

TOMORROW: Two "Foxes," Nimba and Tangi!
