Welcome back to the "Week of Jungle Girls' crossover between Pappy's Golden Age Comics blog and the Catacombs. Our mutual selection today is Princess Pantha who originally appeared in Thrilling Comics, published by the company known variously as Better/Standard/Nedor.
"The Origin of Princess Pantha" is taken from Thrilling Comics #56 (Oct. 1946), drawn by Art Saaf. This tale sets up Pantha's premise and also introduces us to her companion, Dane Hunter. Since Nedor-A-Day (in my links section) went on sabbatical I've presented Nedor's jungle contingent including Judy of the Jungle, Kara Jungle Princess, Tygra, and now Princess Pantha. That still leaves Zudo the Jungle Boy waiting in the queue, so I will try and post one of his adventure stories soon.
The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
