Tiger Girl (Fiction House; 1945)

Princess Vishnu (aka "Tiger Girl") was a staple of the golden age Fiction House series, Fight Comics and she is also day 4's "Week of Jungle Girls" selection - at least here in the Catacombs. Pappy's choice of the day is Safari Cary, a story that looks really great from Dagar Desert Hawk, so click here to enjoy that tale.

This story is from Fight Comics #36 (Feb. 1945), written by Allan O'Hara and drawn by Matt Baker. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.

Chuck: Man, what a cool story. I have become increasingly aware of Matt Baker thanks to great comic blogs like this one, and I am in awe of this drawing. He really makes Tiger Girl so tangible and poised on the point of action. I love page 5 - next-to-last panel. TG seems touchable. Just perfect. -- Mykal
