Malu the Slave Girl (cont.)

Slave Girl Comics was published by Avon Periodicals in 1949. The series lasted for only two issues and chronicled the adventures of Malu, introduced in the first issue as a contemporary young lady named Sandra Worth who swooned after receiving a mystical ring and then awakened with a whole new life as Malu in the dim past. The artwork is somewhat pedestrian, but there are several panels that are quite striking within the feature. Four short tales of Malu were included in the introductory issue and they will all appear here over the coming days.
