Number 1743: The jungle goddess
Anyway, in the fantasy jungle that appeared in comics featuring Tarzan, Sheena, Lorna, Jo-Jo Congo King, and now Rulah, there are a whole bunch of white people who cavort about in the forests, barefoot and near-naked, protecting the natives and generally being the law and order in lawless places. Who can blame me for getting confused on my jungle heroines?
Rulah sports a brief two-piece outfit, so does her adversary, the “ravishing rustler” of the story’s title — an “American villainess,” says Rulah — who is rustling native cattle and selling them on the European black market. Remember your history lessons, Pappy readers...after World War II there were shortages of everything, including meat. Of comic book jungle people there were apparently no shortages.
This is a story done by the Jerry Iger shop. It is from Fox’s All Top Comics #13 (1948).
