Here is another obscure jungle girl from the catalogue of golden age publisher Better/Standard/Nedor/Pines. Kara the Jungle Princess first appeared in Exciting Comics #39 (1945) and despite most folks never having heard of her, she logged almost a dozen adventures before disappearing in 1946 with her last story appearance in Exciting Comics #49.
This tale is from Exciting #41, and the art is credited to Al Camy who was a regular artist on Better Publications titles with features like 'Jill Trent', 'Crime Crushers', 'Grim Reaper', 'Phantom Detective' and 'Spectro'. Kara was originally army nurse Jane Howell who, along with Major Kit Kendall, stumbled upon the lost civilization of Arohiti in the jungles of Africa. There she was elevated to ruler of the Arohitans, a people possessing a charm against physical harm, but she must always stay alert for the evil machinations of the priest Targala.
The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.

This is as good a time as any to mention that beginning on Nov. 30, and running through Dec. 4, I will be participating in a "Week of Jungle Girls" crossover event with Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blog (click on it in my links section). That will double your pleasure for jungle stuff!
