Rulah Jungle Goddess in "The Whispering Wires of Death" (Fox Comics; 1949)

Fortunately for all of you purveyors of golden age jungle girls, jungle lords and all things born in the wilds of the dark continent, your patience will be rewarded. Beginning today, and continuing for the foreseeable future, the Catacombs will happily return to regular posts of such material.

As always, the Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for the upcoming mountain of jungle comics. To get things off on the right foot, we welcome back the jungle girl who has already spent a considerable amount of time wandering through the Catacombs, Rulah Jungle Goddess. Don has supplied several Rulah tales culled from All-Top Comics, Zoot Comics, Terrors of the Jungle and additional issues of her own self-titled series. "The Whispering Wires of Death" is taken from Rulah Jungle Goddess #26 (May 1949); originally published by Fox Comics and lovingly illustrated by the legendary Matt Baker.

This adventure brings our resident jungle gal to the aid of those who are trying to lay a telephone line throughout the jungle, but wouldn't you know it, another white jungle queen demands either tribute or death before they traipse through her neck of the woods. Rulah concocts a neat scheme to turn the tides in her favor by simply phoning a friend.

Yeah! More jungle-themed comics. I've been away on vacation, but I'm back and have a lot of catching up to do. Thank you, Chuck!
