Kid Terror has taken an extended break over at Nedor-A-Day, so since I've got quite a chunk of stories featuring the jungle girls that Better/Standard/Nedor published during the golden age, I may as well take advantage of his absence and run a few of them.
Judy of the Jungle first appeared in Exciting Comics #55 and her adventures continued until #69. Judy displaced Miss Masque as a backup strip and eventually knocked off the Black Terror as lead cover feature. "The Lords of Memnon!" is taken from Exciting Comics #56 (July 1947), and tells of her encounter with the descendants of a lost tribe of Egyptians who have discovered a life-extension formula, of course, the requisite gang of modern hooligans shows up using guns to impress the "losties" into giving up their amazing secret. Judy has other ideas and plows into them like gangbusters, or sure-fisted jungle queens really ought to.
