Morass of Death (Star Publications;1953)

After studying commercial art, Jay Disbrow became a staff artist at the Iger studios in 1950, where he worked on such titles as Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, Kanga and Firehair. He then began freelancing at Star Publications, which included writing his own work. Disbrow worked on a variety of titles, such as Spook Suspense Mystery and Eerie Tales, while also exploiting other artistic activities.

This adventure of Taranga comes from Terrors of the Jungle #4 (Apr. 1953), and it features the introduction of Taranga's future bride, Rita Wayne. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.

Thank you for posting this Disbrow story. His art and scripting always has a weird quality about it.
